The LT77 ended up by Suffix H, installed inside Disco I and Defenders behind a 200tdi engine. Both of the input shafts differ in the length!Quick question - are all R380's classified as "stumpy" (presumably compared to the longer LT77) or are there different types of R380?

The R380 started with the Suffix J, Prefix was 56A or 55A. Installed behind 300tdi engines in Defenders and Disco I.
Followed by the R380 with Prefix 68A and Suffix K or L. Installed in Defenders behind a Td5 engine. I'm not qite sure about the Prefix for the Disco II. Guess it is 67A.
Main difference is the length of the shifter rod inside the gearbox: Defenders have the long stick, Disco gears are shifted by a short stick.
The shorty version of the R380 had been designed to fit a 200tdi engine.
It is so good to see you here again.
It's been years since we corresponded.
Looks your cheese has slightly melted so it stays firmly on your cracker.
We should have a skype call to catch-up.
Correct me if I am wrong but the 300tdi also marked the start of the long box. The reason they did this change, I am told is that the truck handled heavy payloads better with the engine further forward as a counterweight.there is Long r380 for 300tdi/td5, Long R380 for v8 and stumpy r380 for everything 200tdi and prior
