Rebuilt gearbox

Dear All

That concerns a Defender TD5 90 with R380 gearbox suffix L with MTF94 oil

If anyone installed a rebuilt gearbox in his defender, please can you tell if you can now change up first to second, and second to third quickly with high rev (without any feeling of grind/crunch/blocking) ?

Many thanks !
Julien

I don't think you can do that with any R380, it isn't a "fast" box.

My recon gearbox didn't feel much different than the original. Brand new gearboxes on the other hand, feel amazing. LR Workshop

did the turret come with the box or did you fit your original one. If original, you will have to set it up for new box

when I shift gently and slowly without High reving it, Everything is ok. Also I have to decompose well passing by neutral. Please see vidéo Link below. Is this a normal way for shifting gears in a defender ? Thanks a lot !

I need to know first did the turret come with the recon box or did you fit your original one.

Hi
Yes. When I shift gears slowly and with low rev. Everything is fine. I have to decompose well also passing by neutral. Please see vidéo attached. Tell me please if this is a normal way of shifting for a defender. Sorry for the noise of the wipers. Many Thanks Wink

Hi Mike

Am I supposed to shift that way ? I can not high rev it more and shift faster from 1st to 2d and 2d to 3rd. The throttle is at half way. Not more for these gears. Thanks for your advice. Julien

Your gear change looks fine.
Have you attempted to adjust the bias springs to improve the gearchange ?
