    You are correct, my bad, its the D1 uses ATF although lots of peeps use ATF in the D2 as its cheaper and just change it more often. From memory I had an issue with my manual D2, you can buy MTF94 from the likes of CarPlan etc, I used some of this and it didn't make things better so went for LR MTF94 instead and while it didn't fully cure the issue it did make it less worse

    I used some synthetic 75w90 in ours and it cured the notchness when cold.

    My friend runs a tdi and an LT77 from a D1 in his 101 and he uses green long life PAS fluid in his, he said his was always and bit clunky before and the change made an instant difference. It makes sense because it's only a more advanced version of ATF

    I remember my dad taking a big auto box from something agricultural/plant to a specialist, he said they craned it off the trailer and they stripped and rebuilt while he waited. I think he was there a couple of hours tops.

    Not many tools needed, I have rebuilt a lot of shuttle boxes on machines ,a fair few R/R 4HP22`s and the odd jag one over the years. The snapon kit below has done them all, they are all pretty much the same once you get in there. Its what controls them that normally lets them down.

    These days we use MTF94 in the R380 boxes. Much better than ATF. They use the ATF or MTF as they have an oil pump and traditional gear oil is too thick for this IIRC

    Here you go, below the wet pack out of one of my tractors. A bit of slippage caused by pressure loss from a dodgy valve seal, slipping plate debris then blocks the filter, this causes further pressure loss and the rest is history. Just changing the plates ( hard parts) wont fix the problem, there is always another underlying problem if you have discoloured trans oil or plugged transmission filters.

    He said it was a Jagxj6 not a LR. Make doubly sure you use the correct oil. I would just check the oil level first. It might just need topping up. Get it fully warmed up so that the converter is full then dip it.

    Hi, Yes the X type is based on the British Mondeo platform and the S type is based on the American Lincoln platform.
