Product Information

The MT82 6 speed gearbox fitted to the 2.2 and 2.4 TDCi is prone to the spline on the rear output shaft wearing which causes a total loss of drive, this spline 'frets' as it is dry in the same way the earlier LT77 and R380 mainshaft splines wear in the transfer case input gear, same thing, different spline.

The MT82 mainshaft comes out of the gearbox and a female/female coupling shaft (LR030054) is fitted to this with a large bolt.

A male/male coupling shaft (TUD500020) then fits into the LR030054 and the other end goes into the transfer case input gear.

The spline that wears is the one at the rear of LR030054 and the front of TUD500020.

We have devised a method to make this splined interface wet with oil which stops the wear.

We make a new coupling (like LR030054) and spark erode two small slits in the front face where it fits to a bearing, also loose two teeth from the front spline at 180 degrees to eachother (to let the oil through), then spark erode another two small slits on the rear face under the clamping bolt, this now allows oil to 'leak' out of the mainbox to this spline. We then machine a thread on the outside diameter and also make two O ring grooves.

The new shaft (like TUD500020) has a ground diameter that the transfer case input seals runs on, we machine this diameter further up towards the gearbox for the O rings below) to seal on.

Note the new female/female LR030054 coupling does not have the 2 cut outs to fit the LandRover holding tool for fitment so you will have to either lock the shaft using 5th gear or use an impack gun to fit.

We then make a alloy new part which slides over the shaft, this has 2 'O' rings fitted to the inner diameter which seal on the new ground diameter of the shaft and has both a diameter to seal on the outer coupling O rings and a thread to fit it to the coupling.

A tube spanner is supplied to fit this part.

A tip for removing the old collar in situ with the rear casing still fitted is to weld 2 M8 nuts to the 2 cut outs then either use a slide hammer or a 2 legged puller.

Fit the LR030054 and TUD500020 as normal, put a light smear of grease on the O rings and some loctite on the female thread in the ali collar before fitting,

MT82 Output shaft kit

This kit is now well known to the the best solution to the fast waring factory item. I checked my vehicle details by phone, ordered right away on line and collected next day. Ashcroft kindly recommended two companies in my area for carrying out the installation for me and I was able to arranging fitting that week. Absolutely excellent service from Ashcroft and my Defender is driving better than it ever has done. Brilliant!!!!!!!!!!! I will be back.

MT 82 output shaft kit

I bought the MT 82 output shaft kit from Ashcroft two years ago. I recently saw Ashcroft release a new version with an improved sealer. After contacting Dave, they sent me a new cap for free. A huge thank you to Dave for his attentive attitude to customers. Good luck and prosperity Ashcroft!

MT82 Output shaft Kit

Just fitted this shaft to my 110xs Utility. Great bit of kit, drive a lot smoother now. Had about 30% wear on the old original at 85000 miles. Prompt delivery and good communication.
