From crude measurements taken, there appears to be a difference in total casing length of the two boxes, Whether that involves total length between the rearmost of the rear output shaft to the front of the bellhousing casing I am not sure.
Has anyone done a direct replacement - toss the PT 4WD box, fitting in the AWD SR and not had tailshaft issues - retaining same tailshaft? Maybe in an MY EA81 to be specific ?
I currently have a PT 5MT 4WD DR in my Brumby and use the two piece tailshaft that accompanied the box from an EA82 L Series wagon, and can't recall if it was a close tight fit - if it was, the AWD box may be a problem.
I think the front half of tailshafts of XT, manual and auto EA82 4WDs were different lengths, just unsure if any combo is going to work or major cash needs be spent on slicing a bit out of a tailshaft. The box intended to go in is of an unknown to me quantity.
Claims from the wrecker that sold it to the guy I got it off were that it was nice. Since discover it was high miler, and subjected to a joy flight
