LandRover LT77 & R380 Manual Transmissions

The LT77 & R380 transmissions were most commonly fitted to Land Rovers.

The LT77 was generally fitted to vehicles from 1982 to 1994, and the R380 was fitted from 1995 to around 2007.

The LT77 is an updated version of an old Jaguar gearbox that found its way into current model British cars manufactured by British Leyland. The LT77 gearbox was so named because the distance between the main and lay shafts is 77 mm.

There were two version of this gearbox. The earlier version is known as the short stick version. The later version, introduced around 1988 is known as the long stick version.

The R380 box (So named because it is rated to 380 Nm of torque) was introduced as brand new LR gearbox across the entire Land Rover and Range Rover product lines. The R380 is a reworked LT77 with improved main shaft bearing arrangements that provided an overall strengthening of the box. The R380 still has the LT77’s 77 mm shaft spacing.

Since Rover was no longer part of British Leyland the LT prefix was abandoned.
