Well, I wrode about it here: http://www.defendersource.com/forum/showpost.php?p=549709&postcount=20

Was a little bit mad about remouving it from the transbox to the gearbox. This makes no sence because you get lost about the correct angle. :eek:

So I made a new designed one:

matching the boxlifter's rod
clamping by nuts (the studs can be exchanged after a while)
axles are fixed against spinning
bracket got more strength

please have look:

separated parts and welded groups







mounted to the box in remouval/entering position











90° towards the pistonrod









I'll try to get it manufactured in about 10 hours.
That causes 250€/each.

In fact there's anyone who will need it, please send me a PM and tell me about the outer diameter about his boxlifter! :cool:

kind regards
Kurt

That is a fine piece of craftsmanship...
What is underneath as you don't see it in the pictures?
Is the very lower part a round mount for your transmission jack tube on a hydraulic jack?

I just clamped a 28mm rod into my vice to show about how it will work.
It's just a dummy.

Made another adapter to support the gearbox and the transmission box as one part.

To locate the three M8 threads I used a LT77. Hope it will be the same with a R380?

This is the plate fixed by three M8 screws to the gearbox.



To handle both boxes I will use my boxlifter with the other adapter.











The combination ZF autobox/ LT230 is just on duty.





Just searching the COG to keep the boxlifter's glands in good condition.
This will take a while. http://www.uk-overlanders.co.uk/forum/Smileys/default/****-smiley-emoticon.gif

Thanks Don!

Form follows function and I don't want to get trapped under these heavy parts inside my pit! :eek:

The paint is dry now!





Hope Santa will not get into trouble with this monster while sliding down our chimney. :grin

Latest work in 2014:

an adaptor to fit a LT77 on an office chair's chassis! :grin



Now I'm able to roll this item from one classroom to the next one without beeing breathless! :whistling:

Just about 2 and a half hour to go here.

So I would like to wish you all over the place a happy new year! :thumb:

wonderful craftsmanship, the shop manual tells the specs on how to fabricate those as well.

Hi Carlos,

Excellent work.
Much easier to fit than my method of chain hoist, beam through the front doors and the vehicle on car ramps!
Well, to get these things out, there are several solutions possible!

Found this one years ago. Source is: rainer4x4.de

Together with the parts of this box ...



... my pupils will have some fun when starting the next year.
I hope so.

I have to weld these broken parts or have a look for an alternativ part.

Well, I opened the cases to get a look at all these fantastic mechanical working parts inside.





... and replaced all of the interior back to the roots!



The shifter box got glued and fixed by rails.
Hope this will be straight enough for my pupil?



Looks like a plan, no?
