    Oh I do like a good Perkins , I had toyed with the idea of a phaser but the Cummins won out as it sounds as well as it pulls

    What gearbox do you use?
    Im assuming neither the lt77/r380 are up to handle the extra power?

    It'll be the zf s42-5 speed box going in. You can use either that, or the spicer t5 box, but the spicer doesn't have the super cushy air assisted clutch which I really want :)

    Just thought I would mention it as I have seen many beyond redemption and replacement was a cheaper option.

    This isn't too bad, I maybe should've gotten a half chassis but again it's cost

    I've always found they rot from the inside out and most people don't keep them clean and treated, that said I know another classic car guy with an Austin Gypsy on its original chassis which has been kept clean and treated, and doesn't even have the stress cracks they were famous for.

    What sort of power/torque is to be expected from a decent second hand 6bt?

    The 6.5 may have been a turpid engine but it responded well to tuning and was cheap to do as they were such a mass produced unit and they could be tuned without masses of equipment, if you got the earlier 6.2 engine from which the 6.5 was derived they were even better for DIY tuning with predictable results.

    People said the same to me about it being a stupid idea so I supercharged a 6.2 and put it in a Daihatsu and it was more than fun.

    Most probably a 6bt with the manifold turned round to put the turbo higher by the looks of it

    I wanted a 6BT after reading about the Banks dodge dakota truck, it towed it's support trailer to Bonneville and then went 200mph, 700 dobbins and they
    were probably proper dobbins with big hairy feet. But being a poor boy I stuck a baby perky in the landy, montys used to be free.

    soooooooo, after getting some quality time with the old girl, it became very clear that the chassis, whilst savable with a LOT of time and effort, is probably best heading for the big scrapyard in the sky. need to get the disco sold now to fund the new chassis, found a company called shielder chassis who are doing them for a very reasonable price.
