Looking for an Automatic gearbox for a 1999 LDV Convoy TD

Postby simon3314 » Sat Feb 06, 2016 1:09 pm

As the title says I'm looking for an Automatic Gearbox for an 1999 LDV Convoy 2.5 TD
It's what's underneath that matters!

Ok thanks yes this is the same EPIC system.

I'll get back to you, it's for a disabled friend who wants to buy my van. Located in Barcelona, but nowadays I don't think it's too hard to arrange collection of a small pallet with a gearbox on it.

Cheers..

Is this a replacement, or are you converting a manual box :?:

Conversion, but started thinking today about the typically larger brake pedal with it's sensors etc.. Could be hassle.

More than you would imagine, I think.
The autobox on a TDi with EPIC pump is controlled by the engine ECU, which is obviously specific for an automatic vehicle, so the one that you have already for your manual gearbox will not be suitable.
So far as I'm aware, LDV never produced any automatic TDi Convoys, so you'll not find an LDV ECU to do the job for you :(

Ok thanks for letting me know. My friend has a mate who would drive it for him. We just thought it would be nice to do the conversion but I think better to just leave it alone. It runs very well & is in good nick.. underneath is like from the factory due to the spanish climate and low milage.. Not a bad place to buy a smiley transit for use as a donor body..

Cheers
