Sorry about posting this in a nice tidy topic but i have what i suspect is an LT77 box, It looks the same as an LT77 i am fitting to my Manta but when i went to try and ID this box from the oval flat area by the drain plug i found that not only was the number not there but the machined area was missing too, it was just a plain casting from the factory, i can find no other numbers anywhere.

Any idea what i have here ?

Is the five speed box fitted to a TR7 an LT77? If so, with the correct bell-housing, would it be compatible with a Rover V8 engine?

Many thanks

Ian

with the gearbox stripped and the clusters in situe ie:the input shaft pointing sky ward
working from the top

input ............. layshaft

22 ............. 33 = 4th / pinion gear
27 ............. 29 = 3rd
32 ............. 23 = 2nd
reverse .............
31 ............. 14 = 1st
20 .............. 36 = 5th
and 5th gear below the plate

it has the same ratios as an SD1 V8 box

to calculate the ratio's ..first divide the pinion gear ie: 33 / 22 =1.5
then divide the input shaft by the layshaft and multiply by the 1.5 ..and thats the ratio
ie:
1st gear
31 divided by 14 = 2.21 then times the 1.5 you got earlier and the result is 3.32 which is right

thankyou to Dave Ashcroft for explaining to me ... it makes sense now

Numbers stamped on the bottom of mine near where it joins the back nose casting, looking at the list it suggests its an SD1 police type. Nice !

the only real differnence is the higher ratio 5th gear in your box TC , they all has the same ratios until the later versions ie vitesse which had a 37/19 5th gear pair
and also the sherpa version =R150-5 which had a completely differant primary ratio

I have seen a couple of SD1 manual gearboxes which I presume are LT77s, but they have a serial number like CL-044564-C.

Anyone know what these are from?
