No more free advertising for products until they prove their worth, but don't worry- we'll name it when and if.

Well damn.

When I took it apart, one of the (four) torque converter bolts broke right off. At the time, I didn't care- I didn't want to reuse the converter off a bad transmission anyway. Well, turns out since my donor vehicle was a GEMS D1, which uses a completely different flywheel, I HAD to reuse the converter (or find another like it). So, I drilled out the broken bolt, made sure all the threads were in good shape, and painted it green for a laugh. The transmission itself couldn't have gone back in more easily, probably took 10 minutes. But the converter bolts... oh man. On the third out of four, it wouldn't thread and galled the threads. Willing to risk running with three, I moved onto the last one- which snapped right off halfway in. Fuck.
So the trans has to come back out and I will be finding another converter.

On a more positive note, I did make an effort to finish up something else productive, the door sill plates.
Snagged some off a Discovery LSE... only year and model with this style. They are a direct fit to the RRC (swb only)



Added Discovery II filler strips to hide the screws. End result very nice I think.





Also I found a replacement rear differential with a Detroit locker, and it's local too, but the guy is a real jerk and won't sell it to me!

I assume you probably already know this, but I'll mention it anyway. Its important to start all of the torque converter bolts before fully threading them in, as the torque converter will slightly cock making it difficult to start the last two bolts. Sorry that happened to you, I'd be livid!

Yeah I know the drill, but it's strange. I've been through this dozens of times, and for that matter, taken hundreds of these apart, and I don't think I've never broken a converter bolt off like that. I was pretty pissed at first, but like I said, I REALLY did not want to reuse a converter off a trans that had eaten the reverse clutches anyhow. This is just the truck forcing me to go back and do it the right way. There is a company in downtown Raleigh that warehouses tons of transmission rebuild parts, converters, etc. so I will call them in the morning. If that doesn't work out, I think I know a guy local who has one in his stash.

does look nice and it is really different than the 94 backwards ones.

my 94 had a plastic strip which I replaced with the aluminum one from the 93.

doesn't say Land Rover on it though...

------ Follow up post added October 17th, 2014 07:10 AM ------

94 and earlier not backwards. not sure what I was thinking

Because I kept the RRC parking brake, I had to re drill the top two holes...


Lots of progress otherwise. Shifters, cooler lines, driveshafts, etc.

Slide under the truck this morning and I'm really not happy with the transmission mount.


Loosening it relieved the obvious tension on it, but it was still exposed. Originally there would have been a heat shield. Long gone. Here it comes! Another D2 heat shield mod!

D2 used two different transmission heat shield styles. My preference is on the right.


Slight modification needed, just cutting a slot in it is all.


Slid it in, tightened the mount back up, much better.


I also replaced a couple of needed exhaust manifold flange studs, as exhaust replacement, crossmember, and refilling fluids are on the list for today.

OK all buttoned up, except for the wheels/tires and the console. Runs and engaging gears, but the transfer case seems to be stuck in neutral? Haven't figured it out yet.
