R380-ZF conversion

I know several have converted their 90's from stick to auto. Does anyone have detailed notes on the project.

What ancillaries are necessary when getting the ZF from a bone yard?

Does the SG 3-link x-member interfere at all, ect, ect?

Ballpark total time and cost assuming a low mile used ZF

Lastly, anyone have a good source for R380s in good shape?

ashcroft is good for R380s. Can't get them direct but chris at RPI I hear will hook you up. Even dealer prices aren't bad. Also roversdownsouth.

I am heading over to pick up an LT230 in a couple weeks from ashcroft. I also have a 300Tdi R380 that I hoope to have rebuilt soon. It does not look too complicate to DIY but my experience is limited to taking series boxes apart at this point.

Ancillaries from Bone Yard:

1)Everything bolted to the crank: Spigot shim, bolts, flywheel adapter
2)Trans oil lines
3)Swan neck (if donor is equiped with LT230 Disco)
4) Trans mounts (from trans to frame...Same in discos' and early RR's)

Ancillaries from NAPA:
1) Trans cooler
2) Shifter
3) Temp gauge w/sender (if you want)

No it won't interfere with anything...Total bolt in.

Expect to pay $1100 from AAA small car world...But that's usually very low miles (>40k) with a 12 month warantee. Less if you can find one from a private party.

If your asking about the R380 then why the ZF?

I was asking about the R380 in case I bailed on the ZF project. I've still got some life in my current R380, but just tryin to line up what I may need either way.

PS-what did you do about the shifter console, If I remember correctly you and KC have a non stock setup? Do you have any images?

No...No pics..But from the cab you have to look really hard to tell the difference between stock and this set-up...We used the same boot in the stock location...The shift lever is the same height. The only difference is the size of the knob, and that the lever arm is chrome (not bad at all).

It works good for me, but now that I'm crossing the line, I plan on putting in something different. But that's gonna' be in phase II.
