Starter motor for 73 Land Rover?


Recommended Posts

Hi! My dad has this Land Rover but someone took the starter motor out of it. I'm hoping somebody here can help identify the engine and starter motor required.

I hope the photos can help, if you need any more information please let me know, I don't know much about vehicles so I'm hoping this is all that's needed but I can ask for more info if required.

Thank you!

The plate says V8 ? 

The engine is clearly a diesel , and a total stab in the dark it could be Mazda ? sort of based on where you are . 

I assume with it being a Series 3 V8 it is a Stage one with the defender style front end ? Maybe one of our Aussie members can throw more light on the VIN and that engine .

Welcome to the forum by the way 

Edit to add if it is a 1973 then it's not a stage one and vice versa if it's a stage one then it's not a 1973

If I remember correctly he mentioned it was indeed diesel and also said he thought Mazda or Perkins. Sorry about the picture quality, I think it says 7-8 if you're referring to the number in the center.
