I have a 3.9 with ZF in my 109 that is getting long in the tooth. My chassis is a 95 disco so I can move engine mounts and change drive shafts if needed
thanks
We pulled the 3.9/ZF/BW out of the 95 RRC today and compared it to the LC9/6l80/adapter/LT230 and it was 3" longer. We are trying to get a feel if we can run the stock RRC radiator.

Thank you for the information. This will help in the planning effort.
Second question since you have them side by side how do the two transmissions compare in width of the bell housing?
thanks again

[QUOTE=phoenix37;588703]
A word of caution to any one doing this. Pay very close attention to the fuel hose to rail connection. Not long after i posted that video mine sprung a leak. its sprayed gas all over me and burst into flames. I got burned pretty badly and lucky to be alive. I hate to think what would of happened if i was driving with my family in the truck when this happened.

Man thats bad, glad to hear your going tobe ok. Today they have some amazing treatments for burn victims to aid recovery time and reduce scarring, Vitamin E can help a bunch too. In 66 when I got smoked they were just figuring things out.
Take care

You can get the metal Dorman fuel line connectors from Summit (and Autozone too) :

http://www.summitracing.com/int/part...-120/overview/

http://www.summitracing.com/int/part...-121/overview/

And retaining clips :

http://www.summitracing.com/int/part...-023/overview/

Or NAPA brand (most likely Dorman ones) :

http://www.jaguarspecialties.com/tech_tips6.asp

Another option would be to salvage the metal connectors from the bone yard, cut off the crimped hose & reuse. You get the advantage then of the metal retaining clip.

If you want to go AN fitting, Earl's make a decent looking adaptor that has a safety clip similar to the OEM ones :

I spoke with Lokar last year. They move very slowly. Said it was too early for the 6-speed.

Anyway, the Lokar 4L60 cable shifter works perfectly with the 6L80/90. All the detents are available. Including and extra one that the truck doesn't have. PRNDM21 With the addition of my brackets, it's a perfect fit. The last three detents are programmable.

I didn't see it at their SEMA booth. All of the aftermarket are slow to produce anything for the 6 speed because 4 speeds are so inexpensive and popular in the aftermarket.

Wow a little demanding for a new member aren't you? Mike told me he got busy with some other projects but will be getting to work on it in the new year.

Cable

Nick,

Will this work with the RR shifter or only the lokar shifter?

These are for the stock shifter on RRC, D1, D90. The Lokar shifter comes with a cable.

revising my earlier statement about pro flex hoses which will start to weep after 2-3 years of use due to ethanol breaking down the rubber.

Been advised to only use teflon stainless steel braided hose like this and only for short lengths where the line needs to bend. Otherwise all lines will be 3/8 hard lines.

http://www.racerpartswholesale.com/p...onHose#reviews

Also been advised to pressure test all an fittings when making up your hoses. cheap insurance.

http://www.siliconeintakes.com/braid...ter-p-626.html


anyone interested can pm and ill give you a breakdown of the fittings we are going to use.

Who built that radiator.

Could you have fitted larger fans or a fan shroud?

Custom Aluminum Radiator

12" won't fit. 11" are the largest we can use on this radiator(Defender). The RRC/D1 radiator can take 12" fans.

No room for a shroud. Just clears the water pump pulley.
