THE ALL NEW EXTREMEspec MT82 output shaft kit from LOF

April 14, 2020


Welcome to the Ultimate solution to the Defender TDCI worn output shaft kit:


On the Defender 2.4 and 2.2 Tdci it is a very common fault that the coupling shaft between the MT82 gearbox and the Lt230 transfer box wears out and fails! Land Rover assembled the splined coupling dry on the production track, leading to premature failure of the splines. Symptoms of this failure include:

  • Clunking on take up of drive
  • Clunking when deacclerating
  • Total loss of drive

For the last 2 years here at LOF we have been selling the updated genuine parts which come with special EP grease, but after selling over 500 units we believed we could engineer a better solution!

So now we bring to you, the all new LOF EXTREMEspec MT82 output shaft kit. Developed over the last 2 years alongside industry experts, we are certain this is the ultimate solution. Infact we are so certain that we have given it a LIFE TIME WARRANTY!

So what have we done so special?

Well put simply, we have removed the coupling that fails all together, thus removing the weak link in the drivetrain! The LOF shaft is made as a solid 1 piece design as per older LR drivetrain designs, Incorporating a single draw bolt down the centre of the shaft, ensuring that the shaft is retained tight to the back of the Mt82 gearbox.

What is included in the LOF kit?

  1. 1x LOF Solid output shaft, heat treated and made from 300M material
  2. 1x M12 long cap head draw bolt
  3. 1x Nord lock washer set (M12)
  4. 1x Special retaining bolt adapter
  5. 1x Genuine Coretco MT82 rear drive shaft seal
  6. 1x M22 grub screw slide hammer adapter
