Mazda Diesel convertion

Recommended Posts

Hi all

I bought a 110 a couple of weeks ago needed a little bit of work, and during its long life it has had a Mazda 3.5Td engine and Range Rover auto convertion.

The transfer box has a siezed viscous coupling which is a failry common problem, but the gearbox seems good and the engine is awesome. I pulls like a train and sounds superb. However, I don't know anything about the engine (model, spec etc) so I wondered if anyone here knows anything about this convertion and what the engine is likely to be?

It could to with a service and a general clean up, but I would like to know what I am getting myself into before I start. One of the things I would like to rectify is the kickdown as this has been removed to save fuel, but I have no idea where this is or what it looks like.

It also needs a rear section of the exhaust pipe, but I don't know if this is going to be a standard part or something more specific. This is just a pipe with no silencer but as this was originally a V8, would this be the original pipe, something more specific to the engine or just a standard N/A or TD pipe?

Many thanks in advance.
