    im hopeless at these things as I forget to take pictures until I'm halfway through a job, but I'll try my best!

    So we started with this:

    A k reg 110 station wagon. As much as I do like a good station wagon, I'm going, shall we say, hill billy with it, truck cab pickup and probably a dirty big chrome stack up the back of the cab.

    The bulkhead is knacked, but after a bit of searching I managed to find one for reasonable money and in great condition. The main issue was to get it into a state where I can address the previous owner patches, as well as the new holes in the chassis, hence this arrived today:

    First job will be to blast it and find the full extent of the repairs needed. Fingers crossed!!

    Is it worth looking at a new galvanised chassis? look after it and it will last years.

    That 110 looks straight, but it looks like its been somewhere damp for a long time.

    Money wise, csw sell for more - I know its not all about cash, and probably not worth the effort of a swap, but a (same condition) truck cab would be less than you could sell what you have for.

    As I'm sure you know, if the engine isn't knackered (which I guess it must be if you're changing) you probably have £500 plus there for the 200tdi.

    I'll be following this too but I have to admit I don't really know what the fascination is with these old Landy's and putting different motors in them and welding the hell out of them :dontknow:
    I do like a man against machine battle though, so I am in. :welder::welder::welder:

    Out of interest, what Cummins do you plan on putting in it?

    My father has wanted to do a similar conversion but the cost of a 110 that isn't too far gone for him is usually far too high

    6bt going in this, some use the 4bt but they're noisy, underpowered and cost a fortune if you can find one

    Cummins is too refined, got to be a Peterborough built Perkins for me. The rest of the world moves on but it's a 236 going in my project Land rover. They will have probably banned diesels by the time it's finished!

    What about the old 3.5L buick based rover v8 ? I thought they would be a popular choice ?

    Perkins are nice if you don't mind travelling at 45mph all the time ;) been there done that one


    Had one in a disco bobtail, it was fun, it sounded good, but 6mpg was enough to break me of that particular need.

    Might go GM v8 D next time , I think one of those would be good in a 90 ;)

    As long as you have 3.54 diffs and the four speed LT95 high ratio transfer gears 45mph is a gentle chugging pootle speed. After all the Perkins are a low speed torque monster, not suited to high rpm work at all. That's why I like them so, and hate TD5's so much, as they only any good with plenty of rpm. But I don't expect anyone else to want a perkins, it just a dogged fascination I have with them, if it works well in tractors, diggers, lorries and a thousand other heavy things it's my kind of engine.

    You'll be lucky, I struggled to get £300 for mine complete with starter motor, alternator and ac!
