What do i have and what are my options?

Finally got around to setting the 2 engines side by side and noticed the bellhousing difference.

Is there a short bellhousing version for the ZF auto or am I stuck with fabbing new mounts and new drive shafts?

I'm thinking about just keeping the LT77.

The motor autobox and Tcase came out of a Rangie. Will the Tcase be a bolt on swap?

Sorry for the newbie questions.

I don't think so as they did not do the Defender with an auto. The autos are all from Discos so long bellhousing.

Disco 200tdi with short bellhousing into a LHD is very hard to do.

all tdi automatic bell housings are the same. It will all bolt right up and will also clear your lt77 floors. The trans frame mount needs to be used.

And depending on what Range Rover it came out of the transfer box may be the viscous coupling type....best to put a manual diff lock transfer box in it..
Having said that I see in the pic that it appears to have the manual diff lock selector unit...so you are good to go..!!

because of the torque converter it is not physically possible to have a short bell housing auto box.

Can I bolt the TC (1.2) off the ZF auto onto the back of the LT77 or will I need to change out the shaft?

The picture appears to be a complete 200TDI Discovery drivetrain.

Oil Cooler line

Now it's on to the oil cooler lines.

No oil cooler lines on the engine, but picture shows the bolts that are plugging the holes.

From the Glencoyne website:

1. If converting a 2.5TD or late military 2.5NA with oil cooler built into the radiator you already have a suitable set of pipes. Around the end of 1992 Land Rover changed the design of oil cooler pipe union on the Discovery. Older engines have round-ended oil cooler pipes, the same as the 2.5TD. Later engines have pipes with a flanged end and O ring. If you want to use 2.5TD pipes on a later engine you will need to swap over the oil filter housing for the 2.5TD one, and swap the adapters on the oil cooler for the ones on your old oil cooler (taper thread, very tight and hard to shift).

3. Buy new Defender oil cooler pipes. Part number for the older type unions is ESR280/ESR281, for the later type ESR1912/ESR1913.

Which do I order?
