    I have a good working R380 out of a '96 DI that had 117K miles on the odometer. The truck was owned by a long time customer who is a British car nut. Aside from this '96 DI he also sold me his '94 DI a few years ago and still owns an '04 DII Trail Edition, a TR3, '67 MGB and a Jensen Healey...

    Both are from AB and are still in their wrappers. The master ( ANR2186) was $100 and the slave (FTC5072) was $60. The slave will fit some Defender 200Tdi's. Open to offers.

    I noticed today in the parts manual, that there is a spacer plate FRC2402 on the clutch slave cylinder for the R380 with most engines, including the 300tdi. I have replaced the clutch slave on 4 different trucks with this combination, and have never noticed this plate installed. While I can't...

    Clutch slave cylinder leaked.... How bad is it to have brake fluid all over your clutch?? I pray to the land rover gods that my clutch isn't screwed up because of this.

    In midst of my first project - replacing the MC, flex hose, and slave cylinder on 1990 200 TDI MC is back in and the pedal is adjusted Now I am trying to put in the new slave and it seems to be too tight. Is it typical to have to force this in? It is a touch spot to get to - I removed the...

No signs of leaking from the MC. Vehicle history - rebuilt LT77 by ashcroft with new clutch and clutch fork. Party in England...

    Can anyone confirm on a Td5 / R380 combo if the Slave Cylinder is located on the rightside or leftside of the motor [or technically bellhousing] (as you sit in the vehicle)? I know with a NAS 3.9 V8 / R380 combo it's on the left, standard R380 on the right, and R380-stumpy it's on the left...

    I just completed a 300 TDI and R380 conversion and I cannot get the clutch to work properly. From what I can read the correct slave should be ftc 5072 and push rod should be ftc 3912 based on it being an earlier batch of the R380. I have gone back and forth between the 5072 and what I believe to...

    1990 110 200 TDI I can't for the life of me get enough room to get the torque needed to loosen the clutch slave cylinder's bleeder. I have been soaking it the last couple days thinking that would help in the cramped space, but cant get enough room/leverage to break it free. I know members of...

    Hello, I have a new puddle of fluid under the truck. Looks like the MC gave up the ghost. Shifting action had been less than optimal lately but I figured it was because of the freezing cold temps lately. My truck is a Bitsa truck with a 200TDI and a 93 body with an LT77. Are all the clutch...

    I have stripped a total of two threads in this entire engine swap... both of which had nothing directly to do with the swap itself. :facepalm: This time, it was the in reinstalling the slave cylinder on my long LT77 bellhousing. I felt a bit of friction and made sure to hand install the bolt...

    Has anyone tried wrapping the exhaust where it passes the clutch slave and the small S hard line? It may be my imagination, but it seems that my clutch get a bit squirly as the truck heat ups in traffic. I have also noticed that the fluid get a bit dark. The soft hose is about 1.5 years old as...

    It doesn't look difficulty to do but I keep reading about taking the wing off. If I'm removing the entire peddle assembly and the nuts are captive, why does it need to come off? What can't I get to with the wing in place? Any other gotcha's I should look out for? Thanks.

    Hi All - Looking for some help diagnosing my clutch problem. My master developed a leak so i took it to my local guy and supplied him with a new master. He replaced it and it worked but didn't have the same throw/release points (needed to be closer to the floor). A couple days later, the...
