    It appears the reason I've lost 5th gear on my LT77 is the spline wear (destruction) on the mainshaft and 5th gear synchro in the pictures: So - Anyone have any advice on where to get a recon LT77 or short R380 in middle TN/Nashville sooner than the 4-5 week lead time listed on Ashcroft's site?

    Hi all, I am working on getting a D110 and plan on swapping out the transmission for an automatic, so other family members can take part in the rugged goodness of the defender. Talking with many different folks there are many different opinions on the right way to approach an auto conversion...

    Can anybody identify this transmission? Its mated to a 3.5 rover v8 which supposedly came out of a Defender. Its obviously not an LT77 or R380. Is it possibly a stage 1 gearbox. I understand those were unique.

    Does anyone know what the deal is with the CDL lever on the Fusion Defenders? I suspected that they put in a cable driven CDL lever from a Disco II but now I'm not so sure. I'm dropping an LS3 into my 110 and we're trying to figure out the linkages for the CDL. The kit we have came with a...

    Hey everyone, I've reached the final step (or so I thought) of swapping in an LS3 and 6L80e into my D90. I've got my engine running, the Torque Converter is hooked up to the flex plate, and it would appear that everything is fine with the transmission. I can read the TCM and ECM from an HP tuner...

    Hello, I don't know much about transmissions as I have never worked on them. I have a 1987 Defender 110 Diesel, manual transmission. My clutch is very loose and I assume its because I have no tranny fluid in the lines. What type of tranny fluid should I use and how do I know how much to use? I...

    1997 D90 NAS So after the car was steam cleaned at the weekend, the ignition switch & starter started playing up. - Car would start, starter stayed engaged. Could not disengage starter so it was replaced by local mechanic (I was still at the steam cleaners miles and miles from home). They paid...

    The transmission cooler hoses have sprung a slow leak at the crimps. I plan to bring them to a local shop to have them re-crimp the lines. when I remove the two hoses... I am expecting some trans fluid to drain out from the lines and the cooler, but not from the transmission, correct? Thanks!

    I'm in the process of rebuilding the transmission brake. Right now I'm about to take the transmission brake back plate off but before I do so I want to know if I have to remove the drive flange as well so it has enough room to slide off. I'd like avoid draining the transfer box oil. I'd...
