  1. Carloz is right, as long as it is before 1998 it is almost without restrictions although I think if you would put an LS engine in a a 2CV that would raise some questions

    Mercedes om606 engine

    Awesome thread and a lot of info. I am currently trying to squeeze in a M111 Mercedes petrol engine in my series 150Hp & 220Nm (not so impressive number with regards to a diesel but enough for my series with an LT77). The reason why I am replying is it uses the same bell housing patter as the OM603 and derivates. I already have an adapter plate to a LT77, so if anyone needs one I could try and let it copy in auto cad so you can have it fabbed up locally. Cheers, Bowy
  3. Lucky that I am going for a petrol then, no injection pumps to go wrong
  4. It is actually from a 220E. But seems to be the same engine basis. What was wrong with the SsangYoung musso ones?
  5. Just stumbled across a Mercedes engine nearby. It is not the 102 but the later M111. 150HP and 220nm at a bargain price that is delivers more HP per EURO than any LR engine I've ever bought;) . Now I can start with the conversion as I have also sourced the conversion plate. Thank you all for looking and thinking!
  6. Useful tip Soren, luckily the B20 and B23 share the same bell housing so if I can find the adapter. Do you know where to source such a part? I am planning connecting it to a LT77 but should be the same result.
  7. So the Volvo engine is definitely a good one quality wise and power wise. Only the adapter might be a small issue. Any opinions on the Mercedes one?
  8. I am working on finding an alternative for my underpowered 2.5 petrol engine in my series. I am considering 3 conversion options and am wondering if anyone has ideas or experience with one of these 3 options? All three are injection and about 135 to 140 hp with approx 190nm and are 4 cyl ( I can not legally fit a 6 or 8 cyl). In the Netherlands they are readily available. All three are relatively easy on LPG which is also important for me. They all have the exhaust on the propshaft side but this should be manageable. Mercedes M102 2.3 petrol injection (normally sits in 190E or 230E) 134Hp 201Nm Adapter for the the gearbox to engine readily available Ca 200kg fully dressed, Cast Iron Volvo B230 (F) 2.3 petrol injection (Normally sits in a 740, 940 and 240) 136Hp 190 Nm No adapter found yet, but should be able to fabricate this Ca 200 kg fully dressed, Cast Iron BMW M42 1.8 petrol injection (Normally sits in a E36 318ti, si) 138Hp 175Nm Bellhousing is a creative solution to fabricate since this engine has no bell housing but doable. approx 150kg fully dressed, aluminum block Please let me know if you have any opinions or know of any successful projects documented anywhere online. Cheers Bowy

    Donington 4x4 Show 2013

    Will there be any kind of autojumble for second hand parts, tempting to maybe visit my first ever indoor show in the UK. Only a 1200 mile round trip, but always cool to score some bargains and meet up with some old friends!

    Aluminium Radiators - How good ?

    Mated to my 5.7 I have an Allisport uprated V8 radiator, with 2 16 inch spal fans, and it now runs substantially cooler then before with a standard radiator. So another vote for upgrading.

    Fitting wide radius arms to narrow axle?

    Thx for the input, Already what I was thinking Welding on a different set of brackets is an option, but quite a lot of work when the axle is under te car. So probably will try to sell these and try to find a different set and take my losses. Cheers Bowy
