I recently bought a l300 4x4 85 mod. I had no probs for a while ,till my gearbox went to god. Looking around for another box has turned into a nightmare, but have found a 84mod gearbox but do not know if it will fit or even if its a 5 speed box or a 4 speed box. Would be grateful for any advice possible.

I know the 2wd L300's have a bottom cover plate on the box. I presume the 4wd would be the same box with a transfer case on the end. If this is the case just remove the bottom plate, 10mm bolts from memory, and count the gears. You could just run through the gears on the linkage but if you take the bottom plate off you can inspect the internals for damage and metal buld up at the same time.

What engine was it behind do you know?
Work the linkage by hand e how many possitions you can find.
Will the l200 box fit, just a thought

There are heaps of Jap importers that have them. Tell them what you want.

If your box is somewhat damaged internally it may be cheaper in time & better in long run to buy one of the Brand New ones as advertised in Parts Pedlars or similar mags for about $1600- . No chasing expensive new bits & extra labour for strip & reassemble etc.I got away with a bearing kit in mine at 160,000 but next time I think a new one will be the go. Much cheaper than some other make rebuilds.
Lasts longer if U dont slog it in 5th even if the motor will handle it!

Thanks for all your help and advice. I have now opted to get the gearbox reco'd as it's a lot cheaper
