    Default LT95 need parts

    Hi,

    Not really for a 101, but I am rebuilding a 1975 Rangie which has an LT95 and a Fairey overdrive. The problem is I need parts for both..

    Where can I find them in NA or even UK. I have looked up Rimmer Bros in the UK, but I cannot get any info on what is in their repair kits, plus no pics, so hard for me to know what I am actually buying from them.

    Thanks

    Parts for the Fairey LT95 overdrive are no longer made. That is why most of us in 101s end up just swapping in the RR high ration gears. With 900 X 16s it makes for reasonable gearing. WHat parts are you needing - if it is bearings and seals then take the old one out and take it to your local bearing shop and they will see you right.

    THe LT-95 was not sold in the US so most suppliers just don't stock parts although, as our host has just pointed out, they can order them for you. In the UK I would recommend
    http://www.nkrecovery.co.uk/
    He's big in 101 circles. I believe he also does a kit to make a stronger set up for the thrust bearings in the transfer case.

    If not try PA Blanchards as they stock a lot of ex mod stuff.

    Again, what aprts are you looking for? Be aware that the bell housing and input shaft on a 101 are shorter and the transfer case ratios are considerably taller.

    Cheers

    I have a spare gearbox for my Stage One in my garage in the floor. It is in VA (Zip 20165) and I might be pursuaded to sell it. It is complete - but dissassembled. No overdrive.

    The transfer gear swap is not just as simple as dropping in the new gears. You will need shims as well and it is worth inspecting/replacing the bearings while you are in there. Don't forget the o-ring that seals the intermediate shaft. The afore mentioned Mr. Kay will sell you the complete kit to do this.

    I would do some research first, however, as you may find your Range Rover has the high gear ratios in there already. It works well for 101 folk as the stock gearing on the shed is pretty short. I used the highest gear set which is .9962 if that helps.

    You also need a special dummy shaft tool which is easy to make out of 1.5" bar tapped on one end. This is also one of these jobs that is far less frustrating if you have a second set of hands helping.

    Overdrive will give you more useable gears and allow you to split shift on hills which is good. The drawback is that the LT-95 units have been out of production for a few decades so none of them are in their first youth. A worn one will howl which is very trying on a long journey. Finding parts other than stock bearings and seals is difficult. If you can, get your UK mechanic to overhaul it before you import.

    The high ratio transfer gear swap will work for your 110. I can't remember it's original ration but the RR is higher. The advantage of this is that parts are readily available and it has no reliaibility issues as you are not adding any more parts than are already there. It is fit and forget. The drawback is that you are still limiting yourself to four gears. It can mean that you have to downshift earlier on hills. If you choose this route have your mechanic do the conversion in the UK - it'll be cheaper and less hassle as the parts are readily available over there.

    Mind you, just to give you an idea, we used to be able to clip the tonne in my brother's stock '83 110 V8. Yes, we were thrashing the bejeesus out of it.

    Default I have a factory rebuilt LT95

    That is missing a couple gears I bought it for the lightweight but changed my mind. Just sitting on the shelf in case the 101 blows.
