OT - Volvo C202 engine transplant

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

My brother is soon going to be acquiring my dad's Volvo C202. It's in need of quite a bit of work but is generally solid. One bit that needs doing is replacing the engine as the present one is seized and is a bit on the small side. Think it's only an 1800 cc petrol car lump! :) So does anyone know of any other engines that have been fitted into C202's or Laplanders or possibly C303's maybe the same. We know that the 2.3 volvo lump will fit in without any mods but were wondering about something like an Isuzu 2.8 or daihatsu etc....... The vehicle will be used for a bit of towing and off-road playing.

Volvo diesels are incredibly difficult to find!

Any details on fitting the 200/300tdi's? My brother is confident of refabricating mountings etc... just helps if someone has already been there and can give us some pointers! :)

Not sure what type the gearbox is, although we do have a workshop manual for it so will check up.

Thanks

Ed

Photos would be superb. The other thought my brother had was to try the 3 litre straight six that they fitted to the 960 and I think the C303? Very powerful with a few tweaks but it is a bit long and runs on some funny fuel that needs a spark! :ph34r::blink::lol: Plan will be to take the body off and start a long restoration! Wife wants him to get the house done up as well! :lol:

If you got the B6304 engine (Volvo 3lt 960 204 bhp) try and find a lump dated 95 on, earlier ones were know for cracked blocks, (r/hand side, about 2 inc down from the top of the block !!!)

I think he's decided to go for the simplicity of a diesel now. Shame as the 960 lump is a bit special, not 204 bhp but a bit over the 300+ mark! :ph34r::D Lovely lightweight engine but too many electronics and it is very long!

All info much appreciated. Spoke to my brother last night and he was very impressed at the speed of answers and help on this forum.
