Hi all,

I removed the 4HP24 from my 2001 Thor this week as it has gone in for a full overhaul. This is the first time since owning Rachel that I have needed to get into that area, and to my shock/frustration I realised that not all the bellhousing bolts were fitted. Another stupid decision by the PO.

Anyway, I need to replace the missing bolts. This is what I have:
2x 82mm bolts
5x 46mm bolts
4x 34mm bolts

Anyone have an idea of what I am missing? Partnumber or thread and length would be perfect.

Thanks!
Justus

From here (https://parts.jaguarlandroverclassic.com/parts/index/part/id/L7.L7J.L7J02.L7J02010/brand/land-rover/) these seem to be partnumbers I need:
FB506115 --> 3/8UNC x 1 3/8 (34mm)
LYG101451 --> 3/8UNC x 1 7/8 (46mm)
FC506267S --> 3/8UNC x 3 1/4 (82mm)

Now I just need to know which ones I am short!

On a Thor there's the 4 that go between the lower part of the bellhousing and cast sump, so they are likely to be the 4 x 34mm and there's two long ones at the mid point on the bellhousing to bottom of the engine block, so suspect they are the 82mm ones. Then there's two at the top and a further two, or possibly three (can't remember without counting them) more on each side meaning you need 6 or 8 in total of those which I would assume are the 46mm ones. So it looks like you are just short of one or more x 46mm.

Feedback time:
So the gearbox is fitted and I can confirm that these are the bolts that are needed:

FB506115 --> 3/8UNC x 1 3/8 (34mm) --> x4 required. These are fitted from the engine side and screw into the bellhousing.
LYG101451 --> 3/8UNC x 1 7/8 (46mm) --> x8 required. These are fitted from the gearbox side and screw into the engine.
FC506267S --> 3/8UNC x 3 1/4 (82mm) --> x2 required. These are the long ones right at the lowest point from the gearbox side into the sump.

Hope this helps someone in future!
