LD28 to upgrade from sd23 (gearbox info needed)

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I have bought a LD28 to upgrade from the SD23 in a bedford.

 

The van already has a 5 speed from the sd23, can I use this box and flywheel on the LD28?

Is the bellhousing/front section of the gearbox removable? Or is the main case all one piece?

If it's like two halves, then you can.  If it's one large bit, (These ones usually have a flat "pan" bolted to the bottom) then you're up for a new box. 

If it's two main sections, then you can swap just the bellhouisng.

You need to identify what "size" box it is. If it's a 63, or a 70 series box. The number is often found on the side. If it's a 63, then I have an L series bellhousing here for a 63 which is zero use to me. (I was going to scrap it tbh)

If it's a 70, then you'll need to find a bellhousing from the likes of a 240, 260,280 C/Z/ZX etc.

Is you box a floor of column shift?

Can you post a photo of it?

Are there any numbers on it.

Nissan/datsun is a lot like lego really.

l series petrol and diesel flywheels are different depths i've found,

only since bolting an ld to an l28 patrol gearbox,

the ultimate box would be from an mq safari lwb with divorced transfer,

as they are a 4 spd bus box essentially and the Bedford won't put too much strain on it
