Gearing is not that you have an LT77, it is that you have (I am 99% sure) a 1.667 high ratio LT230 t-case. tdis and NAS 110s have a 1.4 and NAS D90s have a 1.2.

Swap it for a 1.4 and it will be factory, swap it for a 1.2 and it will be like your D90 (but might be too tall of gearing for your needs with a 110 200Tdi).

Thoughts on heater output?? I have been considering this change myself but I wanted some first hand evidence that it puts out more air and heat than a properly running stock heater.

Do you know which LT77 you have? That can affect the choice of transfer case. If you don't know check the serial number. We need the first 2 numbers and the last letter.

LT77 is the trans. The only issue I am aware of is whether you have a 2in or 3in output shaft.

Pull the numbers off both of the LT77 trans and the LT230 t-case and you can see what you have and what is needed to change the t-case.

ashcroft transmission's website has pics of where to find the numbers.

Ditto. Inquiring minds want to know.

serial numbers for Xfr case swap

the number on my LT77 is 50A0120597D and the number off of the "new" intended transfer box is 28D422691E...
can I use this transfer box on this LT77 trans?




as for the currently mounted transsfer box, the only numbers I could find on it were FRC61C4 and FRC5415...there were no numbers in the two spots shown by Ashcroft site video...

thanks
George

28D is a 1.222 high range out of a disco. It should fit fine. It might be a bit too much in the other direction as I noted above (factory 200tdi is a 1.4).

Your LT77 is a suffix D that appears to be original to the truck.

Ron...so the input shaft issue is not a problem when using this transfer case with this trans?

Oh, and what might be the downside of using this box?
thanks very much for the info...
George

I don't think it will be. Pretty sure that it is 3in outputs don't go into 2in inputs, not the reverse and I am not sure if a 28D actually has a 3in input anyway. You will want to pull the solinoid out of the T-case (the dome on top, remove it and cut off the pin sticking out or remove the solinoid entirely.

Downside is that it makes the gearing taller, so starting from first will be harder and you will have lower revs at speed.

Lots of people run 1.2 t-cases with tdis though.

Keep an ear out for gear noise on the gearbox. The D boxes have quite small layshaft bearings and the TDI will kill them eventually. They made quite a few improvements to the gearboxes before the 200TDI came out. It won't die all of a sudden and may last years, but you should hear well in advance as the bearing become loose.

It is to prevent you from shifting the t-case when the auto trans is in drive.

I'm running one in my 110 200tdi, they're fine for the most part, but heavy towing might be an issue.

News about re-paint, sliders, tire mount and heater...

So...mounted the DAP sliders today...bulkhead bolts came out no problem (whew)...had to re-drill and enlarge holes in the slider mounts but no big deal...mounted the rear swing away tire mount and now rear door dont close...and the Summit Racing heater works fine ($130) but not noticibly better than properly adjusted stock heater and fan that I can tell so far...repainted with Alpine White...and of course mounted Tdi stickers!!! next spring will try to do something with interior...
kind of like the black and white color scheme...

George,
Looks great-glad to see you are back on the road. Also glad to see another set off lift up handle doors re-done and on the road again. Did you weld up the holes where the galv trim used to attach ?
