NAS Defender R380 with BMW Diesel input shaft + 1.2 LT230

NAS Defender R380 with BMW diesel input shaft and LT230, 1.2 gears. From my 94 D90. They're great. Perfect for anyone wanting to install the twin turbo diesel from the X5 35d or 335d. I just don't need them because I got a 300tdi set to match my Defender 2.8i bell housing, which is slightly longer than the P38 diesel version. I'll include the rear bell housing section, LR part number FTC3424, if you want it. For a picture of that see the 1st page of my build thread in the Truck Build-Up's Restores sub-forum. For mating it to a BMW diesel engine (M57 or M51) you'll also need the front section, LR part number FTC4461. Of course you can also use it to mate to a petrol M5x or S5x BMW engine but the engine will be tilted about 10 degrees to the left. To use it with a V8 or tdi just swap the input shaft. I had the input shaft installed by Transmission Exchange in Portland, OR. They also inspected the trans when they had it opened up and said everything looks good. I'll include the receipt. I think it was $580. The previous owner of my truck stated these had about 80k miles on them.

$1200. I prefer local pickup, but I'll palletize them for $50. You'll need to arrange shipping from Damascus, OR.

Actually you know what? This would also be perfect for mating to an M20 engine (80's/early 90's 3-Series or 5-Series) because it is tilted just like the newer diesels (because if you mount a trans made for an M50 (such as a ZF320) to an M20 the trans is tilted about 10 degrees to the right). Or even the M21 Diesel from a E28 524td. Those would be good cheap & reliable options, even though they aren't that powerful in stock form. You can get a powerful M20 though such as from Metric Mechanic. Link: Baby Six M20 Engines – Prices | metricmechanic.com. The M20 has very simple electronics like the Rover V8.

I'm dropping the price for this nice relatively low mileage smooth shifting gearbox & t-case.

$700 for the gearbox. (+$100 for the P38 diesel bellhousing if you want it)

$250 for the t-case.

$900 for both.

A Disco R380 gearbox recently sold on here for $775. This is an actual Defender gearbox. I don't know how much work it is to swap the shift mechanisms on a Disco box for use in a Defender, but I imagine it's not much more to swap the input shaft on this box to use with any engine. It's a good box.

I didn't mean for this post to be confusing. The R380 is from the Defender. It has NAS Defender V8 gearing. The only thing that's different is that it has had a P38 Range Rover diesel input shaft installed (the shaft that sticks out the front of the gearbox). So that would need to be swapped for the correct input shaft for whichever engine you want to mate it to.

If you want to swap the input shaft it's part 5 in the diagram. The part numbers are listed here. For example, the V8 input shaft is part number FTC5044. It's about $149 from lrdirect.com. The 300Tdi input shaft is part number TUD102580. It's about $171 from lrdirect.com.

For some reason everyone thinks these came off a Disco. I must have them priced too low. So now the price is one million dollars.
