Defender trans in D1

I have a R380 for sale and I am trying to find out if it will work in a 97 D1. I have been told that it will work but the bell housing is different. Can this just be swapped out with the D1 housing? I have also heard the Defender bell housing is hard to come by and might be worth some dough. Am I right or way off. Thanks, Mike

Damn what are you smoking and where can I get some? Just Kidding. Definately everything from the bell housing to the LT203 is different, including the crossmember. You'll have to find a disco clutch pedal box, an R380 with the right length mainshaft, piping and ditch the oil cooler stuff. Might even have to change the flywheel, I'm someone can shed light on that.

the difference is mainly the shifter, which requires about 4 hours labor to change out the internal rod.

Talking about smoking? The clutch pedal box has nothing to do with the transmission fitting or not.

As for the OP, I'm planning on putting the transmission from my D90 in to my DI, so will be able to tell you what needs changing in a couple months. Probably not soon enough for you though.
