Starting to think about converting Kermit to an auto. Want to keep the 200 TDi engine and am looking at a 200 Tdi auto box on t'Bay. Couple of questions:
1. Am I right in assuming the only difference betwen a 200 Tdi and 300 Tdi box assembly is the bellhousing ie. the actual gearbox is the same?
2. If I do use a 200 Tdi auto box will I have to move the gearbox mounts and alter propshafts, etc?
3. Other than losing the cubby box and having to fabricate a housing/mounting for the gear change lever, are there any other significant modifications I need to consider?
Even if I get the box, I'm probably not going to fit it until winter ready for next year.
All thoughts welcome.
Have you got the long bellhousing LT77 gearbox, if so then I think the lengths are the same so it will be a nut/bolts job with either RR auto mounts or a slightly tweaked gearbox xmember, propshafts will fit, you'll need a 200tdi ringgear driveplate/boss assembly to replace your flywheel, autobox should come with TC, use a Jag XJ shifter assembly (I've got a couple of RRC shift assemblies if you prefer that, make sure you get the xfer lever extension with the autobox and the oil cooler n pipes.
