    LT77 Gearbox

    Hi All
    Can anyone tell me what car an LT77 with the serial number beginning with 30A and ending with D.
    I know that a 28A D was in a Rover SD1 Vitesse but not sure about the above. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks
    Rob

    Rob,

    The infortmation I have would indicate that the gearbox is from a Sherpa van and to be avoided where possible - not sure why though!

    Hope this helps,

    I would imaging that a van gearbox would have a lower gear range to pull heavy loads, therefore making it unsuitable for a car with high power to weight ratio.
    It just does....

    That’s the reason I was given too for avoiding the Sherpa gearbox

    I have an LT77 which I'll be selling When I get a round tuit. Swapped it out of mine last year for an R380. I'll keep you posted.

    Thanks, I already have an Lt77 in my AK, which is a C prefix out of an SD1. I was seeing if the other box could be kept as spare. My current box is going well, fingers crossed.
    Thanks
    Rob
