Thanks for the replies. So, it is not a direct swap even though it is "quite" similar. Good to know exactly what are the differences. That is what I need to confirm on, to make my life easier I would stick to 99-01 transmission.Col said:The Bellhousing will certainly be different due to up to 98/99 Gems had a Steel sump, 99'on Thor Engine had a Alloy Sump so Lower Mounting bolt holes are different. May be able to swap parts Bellhousing etc. but not to sure.
I did. They have great price for the rebuilt one. I will check with them to see how is the shipping cost. Thanks.Max said:
What year of disco2 ? Thanks.Rich998a said:You can also use one from a Discovery 2 auto.
Logically, it sounds right. All 4.0 and all 4.6 should be the same except bell housing. I wish I have both or all the transmission sitting around to do a comparison. Since I am doing it in my garage, it has to be out and in as smooth as possible. Thanks for the input.Rich998a said:Any of them from 1998 to 2004. Certainly all UK spec Disco2 automatic, including the TD5 from what I understand.
The bellhousing is very simple to change over. It's the main gearbox that you are interested in, but you will need the suitable bellhousing for the engine application.
Even though the sump differs slightly on the GEMS and Thor engines, I'd expect the same bellhousing for it. The back of the RV8 is the same for 4.0 or 4.6, and I'd be suprised if the bellhousing was different for both engines. Someone with MicroCat (my copy is at work) could check to see if there are more than one part number for a bellhousing on the Pertol p38.
Scotty, I am locating in Birmingham, Alabama. I will look at the transmission today and get all those part numbers. Thanks.Scotty said:Where are you located I have a good pre 99 transmission works great I drove the car before I removed it..
I show these part numbers for the bell housing. The following part numbers are listed as the Housing assembly- torque converter auto Transmission RTC8594 to vin. WA410481, TGS100080 From vin. XA410482
These part numbers are listed as Housing governor extension: TGS100140, 4.0 From vin. XA410482
TGS100130, 4.6 From XA410482 hope this helps..
The Bellhousing IS Different, on a 'Thor Engine' it bolts to the Sump as well as the Engine Block and on the 'Gems Engine' there is a Seperate Alloy Cover Plate which bolts to the Bellhousing. I know this for certain as I fitted a Thor Alloy Sump to a Gems Engine and had to Re-Drill the Bellhousing on the 'Gems' Transmission to Match the holes in the 'Thor' Sump Pan.Rich998a said:The back of the RV8 is the same for 4.0 or 4.6, and I'd be suprised if the bellhousing was different for both engines.
