Yes my box has ATF and I believe reading on some forums that there is a special oil for them now its a cross between ep an atf so improves the gearchange.
For the amount the car will get driven once done mite just do an oil change and flush if I can and put up with the noise .

They seem to be a helluva lot tougher than the 4 speed 'box. I'd do as you suggest, oil change and swap the filter out, stick it back in and see how it goes.

Didn't know they had a filter in them, something to look at when the weather warms up, but overtime pay coming in handy

I thought the filter was a Land Rover addition, in the transfer box adaptor housing. Not fitted in SD1 & TR7 applications

Ahh, you might be right there- mine certainly has one but now you mention it I think it's in the lump tacked on the back- sorry.

Lee,

I found this some years ago on a Dutch SD1 website. LT77 gearbox rebuild in 5 parts (left side of the page) even I understood it.

No probs, should answer questions about internal oil pumps and filters though.
