    Transfer box swap?

    Will a transfer box off a 200 tdi 1992 manual with the old type gearbox go onto an R 380 gearbox in a 1995 300tdi commercial? If so are there any modifications necessary, I know it has the old type handbrake cable and rod assembly but is the input the same for both boxes? Many thanks Dave
