V8 r380 can it...

Can I use a r380 from a NAS v8 D1 with the Disco 200Tdi in my 110? I know about the fitment, just need to know if the gearing in the r380 is correct for the 200Tdi. Just one of many questions coming...

Gearing is different, input shaft is different. What you need is the short shaft r380 setup for diesel. http://www.ashcroft-transmissions.co...&productId=157 This is the replacement for the diesel lt-77. I've been told by ashcroft that shipping would be around 200.

http://members.shaw.ca/red90/gears.html It appears only first/fifth gear are slightly different between the V8 vs. TDI R380. I myself have wondered if it would be possible to swap the input shaft/bellhousing from a TDI R380 into the NAS V8 R380. The gear selector will be farther back on the v8 r380 and could possibly require you to modify the seatbox to make room for the gear select. Anyone have any more information regarding this?

I know a guy who put a v8 r380 behind a 2.8 TGV - it fits and runs fine with the correct length bellhousing (modified v8 one? I don't know. Clutch is on opposite sides. In the end he was really pissed off since he then had to change the position of the trans/t-case mounts and had to make custom length driveshafts.

Oh, and the only reason that the input shaft fit into the pilot bushing is that he had a custom one made.

When it comes to transmissions, buy the new one. It's worth it. No sense having to deal with someone else's worn syncros etc. I got mine 2nd hand because it was before Ashcroft started doing the short-bellhousing again, but today I'd go new without thinking twice.

Yes. I just unloaded a short input shaft and short r380 bell housing from the container on Wed. for someone else doing the exact same thing.
Frank if you want this stuff contact Dave Ashcroft and then shoot me an email. Have a container leaving again this coming week.

based on the cactus in your drive ways shots I'm guessing it may never rust now.
there has to be something that can be done to tighten up the shift gates and rattle in the lever

On a somewhat related note, the almost new (6000mi) clutch release bearing is squeaking now, is there any in-situ treatment that can help quiet it down, I don't really fancy pulling the entire transmission... again.
