    R380 Difficult to select 2nd, notchy 2nd gear change then sudden vague gear change.

    How Do I? v8 engine in to td90

    I have seen a 1994 disco v8 manual for sale locally and was wondering would the engine connect to my gearbox's bellhousing or would I need to change the bellhousing? Or could I use the bellhousing from the disco The disco is a 1994 model, so is that the R380 box? Could I use that too? Cheers
