    got a G reg 90 with a disco R380 and 300tdi. The seat box in the defender has been modified as the transfer box sits a little further forward (I think).

    I need to replace the clutch (heavy duty I guess), but don't know what parts catalogue to look at. The bell housing is different on some 300tdis ? Does that mean the clutch set up is different?

    Trying to work out part numbers to do the full clutch replacement. May as well do the cam bush too. Any help appreciated!

    Yeh I guess I'm just not 100% sure it's an R380 and 300tdi out a disco, or one of them out a defender? So maybe I need a combination of parts?

    So, searching in paddocks (selecting "parts" then "defender" then "clutch" and 300tdi) I can see STC8358 or DA5551. If I change the search to disco 300tdi I get the same numbers.

    But my parts catalog says STC8358 is for LT77 and the part for R380 (what I have) is STC50501.

    I am confused!
