Question Preferred Disco t-case if you have a choice?

Assembling parts/pieces prior to my 110's arrival, definitely would like to get a 1.2 transfer case and they seem to cheap and plentiful from wrecking yards around here:

Early model D2:



Later model D2:



Pros/cons to either for installing in a 1999 TD5?

Thanks,

John

Later ones were the LT230Q.... Q meaning "quiet"... although I've never really had any cause to think a normal box is "noisy", but I suppose every decibel helps.


Bear in mind, some of the D2 boxes didn't have a difflock fitted (or didn't have the linkage on it... the diff is still inside the box), some are as easy as bolting on the operating arm with a 13mm nut (you'll see the threaded shaft sticking out of the box), some will need a kit from ashcrofts to add the lever


In my mind, I'd go for the one with the lowest mileage....cost depending of course.

Thanks. I'll buy the one with 39k miles.

Alright...just showed up. Gave the shaft a quick spin...quiet and smooth.

Would you guys bother taking it apart for inspection with only 39k miles?

Remove the shift interlock solenoid. Change the 3 shaft seals and the intermediate shaft o-ring.

Drain fluid remove bottom cover inspect gears for wear metal . Lock the diff feel for slop , if all looks and feels good replace the seals and run it .

And what those guys ^^^^ said didn't notice with my mini pics on my phone it was a D2 unit .

Check the diff lock and low/high range shifters make sure it all works. Check that the diff lock light switch is adjusted correctly.

Will there be a cover on my 110 T-Case to go over the hole?

Diff lock moves freely with a positive "click" both ways. Input shaft spins smoothly in either range. High/low range shifter seems REALLY stiff. Is that because of the solenoid or because it might never have been used?

Procedure for that?

Thanks,

The solenoid is under a cover already. Unbolt it and remove the guts. It will be obvious.

Read the workshop manual (easy to download) to find the switch adjustment procedure.
