Swapping a Turbodiesel into a Land Rover
For years I've wanted to put a diesel in my 64 Land Rover, but I haven't liked my choices.
Now that newer euro diesels are working their way into junkyards I am trying to get more info on what to go with/what will work.
Mainly I am thinking the Italian built 2.7L CRD inline 5 from Jeep, or the
Obviously a big question is, what will fit? Equally important is, could I get it to run? I would be mating the motor to a GM/New Venture gearbox and Rover transfer case.
From what I understand some of these new diesels will not run right unless they're mated to the stock transmission, and the ECU needs all the components to talk to each other constantly.
And the amount of wiring is pretty daunting, regardless.
Who knows about this stuff? Any factory techs on this board?
