V8 110 CSW to Isuzu conversion


Recommended Posts

Has anyone fitted an Isuzu 2.8 to a 110 CSW V8 with a Santana gear box (LT85)?

What I thought was going to be fairly straight forward now isnt, I have the engine already coupled to an LT77 but the seat bases and tunnel are all different part numbers in catalogue.

Not sure which way to go on this - convert to LT77 or buy extra conversion kit (if one exists) for the LT85, or is the conversin kit plate universal for LT77 & LT85 even though they are very different in shape. Current LT85 is one fitted in 95 so not as old as the rest of the vehicle, still seems a good strong box.

Problem solved with a Steve Parker Range Rover V8 manual to Isuzu 2.8 TD adaptor kit. Pricey but beyond my simple machining skills. Up side is I now do not have to re weld the old engine mounts, new ones in kit.
