This is all based on observation and anecdotal only as I have not yet got to this point in my plan, but the Discovery box will have a long shaft that is not suited to a rear wheel drive application as it is not threaded to accept a flange nut, and will be too long for an extension housing, too...
I remember a thread here where the internals of the 4HP24 were put into the casing of a 4HP22, but for the life of me, I can't find it..
So, my question is, would the same swap be possible with the 4WD boxes?
I have an opportunity to buy an automatic Land Rover Td5 Discovery II with a dead box...
A side cover came off my Guzzi LeMans one day and I very unhappily ordered a new one from a mate who was the Agent at the time...

I had wondered if a 4x4 conversion would be possible with a Synchro/Quattro/Subaru setup, or even a transfer case like the Jensen FF uses and a regular diff.
It would take some serious massaging and fettling up front, that's for sure.
Loooooksury, I tell you.
