Thanks

There were some problems:
In Botswana I tried to use the low range. There war a strange noise from "somewhere". Then I could not shift to the low range.
The guys in Pretoria found of, that there is a steel ball to center the gears. This ball was not in the right position and blocked everthing

Secont: the inner chain of the front propellershaft had become much to long within the last years. I got a new one for 650 Euro incl. work (in germany a new one is 1500 Euro without work). The removed it within minutes from a fresh overhowled Patrol K160 gearbox. Amazing!

Third: they replaced an oil seal between engine and gearbox, they put a new center bush to the connection between engine an gearbox.
