Re: Restoration

Very good job! Nice to see, the kit is still worth the money. I hope you had a lot of fun while the gearbox overhaul :D You took the old trust washers on the intermediate shaft? While reading the story of the missing detend balls I had a smile on my lips, a déja vue! I lost two detend balls in the s...

But any liquid sealant should be the better idea as I used on my own box. It has been working for four years now.

Re: Restoration

Your box seems to be in great condition, only the primary shaft and a few bearings. A really worn LT95 box is a rarity. I have two Range Rover LT95 with more than 200000miles each. There are nearly perfect gears inside, only bearings, shims and synchronization has to be replaced. The problem with oi...

Re: Syncro Gearboxes

I used the kit three years ago and everything was in a good quality. Most bearings were Timken. But beware of the trust washers installed to the intermediate shaft gears. In later kits I found out they were steel made instead of bronce. It works but just for 100miles :( . The coating is correct..., ...

Re: Restoration

Being a bit nervous is normal :D it is not necessary to have special tools for the LT95. To get the tilted roller bearings off the shafts, an angle grinder is useful. First you have to destroy the roller cage and than cut a slice off the inner ring. Sometimes the heat is sufficient to take the ring ...

Re: Restoration

The main problem on LT95 boxes are the lay shaft bearings. That makes the box noisy. After the rebuild I would recommend STOU oil instead of engine oil. STOU is a 10W40 engine oil with transmission oil additives in. The gear change is much better than before. There is an overhaul kit available with ...

Re: Heater control valve... again

Hi all, I installed the heater valve a few weeks ago. We spent the Easter holidays with our caravan behind the Stage 1. The old valve was leaking on longer trips and I didn't want to top up the coolant permanently :wink: The valve fits and works perfect! https://up.picr.de/35709264wh.jpg https://up....

Re: Low vacuum on carb

If there are later carbs fitted, there should be an additional spring loaded valve fitted in the throttle valve. When the spring got weak over the years there is an bypass at idle revs. The best solution is an exchange to the standard unit without valve or the valve can be soldered. http://up.picr.d...

Re: Oil leak from prop side of rear axel

When there is only an oil leak, you need a new oil seal. The worsed case is a grooved flange which is not too expensive. Another possibility could be a Speedy Sleeve.

Re: Spigot bush or release bearing

For that job the gearbox has to come off. That's a heavy thing, I think more than 150kg. When it's on the work bench, the job gets easier... 8) When I repaired my LT95 box 2 years ago, I first took the engine out of the chassis. I think after the repair it is easier to fix the engine to the box than...

Re: Spigot bush or release bearing

Sorry, I can't believe the spigot bush is noisy when your foot is on the pedal. I had the same noise in my LT95 box. At least I discovered worn bearings on the layshaft. While repair I found out the thickness of the distance shim was the reason for the failure. Due to a lack of axial preload the bea...
