Piston rebuild

Staying true to DIY Land Rover mechanics all over the world, I have moved my engine rebuild station into the kitchen

Sweet! Your wife must be excited about that, assuming are still married, right? And if you are, does she have a sister? One of my favorite rebuild threads by the way, incredible work!

Some more progress tonight. There are a lot of rings that's for sure. Five per piston! I was careful to make sure they go in the right order and right side up. According to the manufacturer's instructions, there is a very specific sequence on how they are supposed to be put on. Besides being in the right position I am not so sure it matters if I put one on clockwise and the other counterclockwise but whatever.

No. I don't think so. The machine shop provided them. Probably made by Britpart or Allmakes

Good to see some forwards progress Dr!

I keep forgetting, I have had the inspection cover you need for the R380 set-up in the backseat of my 62 for at least three months now, I need to bring it over sometime!

Thanks Matt, I'll stop by the house some time to pick it up. Still waiting on JimC to finish rebuilding my FJ carb!

Rob Dassler Rebuilt R380 and LT230

So I just received 2 huge boxes from FedEx yesterday. Rob Dassler finished rebuilding my transmissions. He took everything apart, cleaned up the cases and repainted them. He was great to work with. Called to let me know what needed to be done and the turn around time was pretty quick.

He replaced all the switches with new ones

I ended up needing a different rear housing on the LT230 to get the correct speedo unit since the Disco LT230 uses an electronic one.

He replaced that and also upgraded the front drive flange with the correct 110 size one since the Disco flange is bigger.

Looks like he stamps his work. Found this on the R380.

So I have been searching for the last few hours as to which type of oil to use in the transmission and I am about to go crazy. It seems MTF94 is what Ashcroft and LR is using. Redline MTL is what everyone else is using. I called Rob and he suggests Royal Purple Synchromax! This horse must be dead by now!

I use Royal Purple Syncromax for gear box and their gear oil for diffs and transfer case.

I use MTL but the Royal purple is a similar spec. I would be happy with either.

Good enough for the Parts Ninja, good enough for me. Just placed an order on Amazon for the Redline MTL for the R380 and Redline 75W90 synthetic for the LT230.

I spent hours one day researching the oil for the R380 and found lots of different opinions on various forums. I decided to get Amsoil's version of the MTF-94 that Land Rover recommends (link).

It has been 6 months and I have made zero progress! I am halfway building up the bottom end of my 3.5 V8 and just realized I cannot find my timing cover/rockers/valve covers. From switching between 2 machine shops to work on the block and heads and moving to a new house, they have gone MIA. Now I am trying to track down another 3.5 V8 to use as a parts donor. There is so much behind the scenes BS that I am beyond frustrated!

I have spent so much time and money on this rebuild to run into this problem now. I have not driven this truck for more than 500 miles since I first got it in 2009. I am about to throw in the towel I am sooo over it!

You're too close now to give up. Hopefully someone will have the stuff you need. Don't forget to ask what their restocking fee will be because as soon as you get the new parts the original stuff will show up miraculously. It's probably your wife having fun watching you squirm.
