Lt77 Gearbox noise

Hello!!
Most people reading this will have undoubtly seen my many hasslmes about a blowback problem but hold on here is something new!!

I have an old LT77 gearbox which at the moment does not seem to like going into 3rd or reverse and sounds oh yes like an old coffee grinder. I am now looking for the bearings so I can have them replaced but am not sure about the parts no. As my car is from a changeover year I am wondering wheter the parts changed between 1983-1987 and whether the bearings are standard?

Also, does anyone know a good place for fast UK shipping ( as the parents are coming to Maroc they can bring us some good old spares) and what exactely we need to heal two noisy gears?

Many thanks!!!!

Hi again...

oh dear... what oil did you use ?
was it red or yellow ? the LT77 need EP90 oil but EP80 will do as well.

really have a look at "RPi Engineering - Specialised Rover Engines" they do fast international shipping, have a word with Holly..... he knows what he's talking about.

ps. I used to work there... years ago...

but I don't like Chris, that's the Boss... he will run you phone bill up... and will tell you how good a LPG conversion would be.... YOU DON'T NEED THAT !

LT77 box, use the red ATF oil, auto transmission oil. NOT EP80/90

sounds odd, but thats what they specify.

You'd be better sending an email to Ashcroft Transmissions along with the gearbox number (this will open a video clip to show you where to find the gearbox number)

They will be able to tell you exactly what you need, and (even though they sell genuine LR parts) they're cheaper than a main dealer.

I remember YES right, the LT77 has red oil

well I had engine oil in my LT95 gearbox, makes thinks easier
and all other LR88 / LR109 had EP90 sorry, as I say it's years ago
