    ISF2.8 Data Points on Drive-Ability

    Having almost finished a from scratch build of a 110 that has taken nearly 5 years to complete I have a great respect for the guys who are pioneering these conversions. My truck is a 200tdi with new chassis, new puma body, new wiring etc. The only thing not new is the drive train. I have...

    Tub re-assembly

    When I built my tub, I built it from new factory parts so the only piece that needed to be welded into place was number 13 above. You would have a lot of welding with what you have shown. I drilled the holes into piece 13 and then he just filled the holes with weld. There was a little metal...

    Tub re-assembly

    When I build my tub I took it to an experienced aluminum welder and had him weld it. Even then it was tricky because of the thin metal. He took his time and it turn out great. We drilled holes where the spot weld should be and he then filled the holes with weld. Aluminum spot welders are hard...

    Cummins Repower ISF 2.8 for Defenders

    I sent Kevin a email the other day. Mounts are going to be roughly $400. $2000 for the 8HP70 to LT230 adapter. $1460 for engine to trans adapter. I did not ask on the stumpy. The motor is $9275 with my state sales tax and the current incentive. I did not get the cost on the ECM for the 8HP70. It...

    Cummins Repower ISF 2.8 for Defenders

    I can see that it would if you are transplanting which most folks will be. I'm starting with a chassis and building up from there. So no real problems for me except a $5000 adapter plate. I would have a modern engine mated to a modern transmission that would bolt directly to the chassis I'm...

    Cummins Repower ISF 2.8 for Defenders

    Makes me think of using the MT82 again. Everything in stock TCDI location, just need an adapter made.

    Cummins Repower ISF 2.8 for Defenders

    Well next time you are making mounts add an extra set in and I'll buy them. My setup will be the same as the one you are building now. I am happy to pay the the engineering work you have already done. I am just not that savvy and don't have the equipment to perform those feats of engineering.

    Cummins Repower ISF 2.8 for Defenders

    Doug, does changing the fore aft position change the basic shape of the mount or just the position of where the mount goes? With that said the truck you are currently building seems like it would be popular way to go with 6L80E and Marks adapter. Would that be something you would make a run of...

    Motor Mounts Are any of the builders out there going to sell a weld in motor mount for the Defender? I hate recreating the wheel on something like this.

    Trans adapters

    I would go that way because my chassis is already set up for MT82. I can mount it which lines everything up for the motor to go in. Cut out the old motor mounts weld in new motor mounts and I'm done fitting the engine, transmission, and transfer case. I only have to buy one adapter. It fits...

    Trans adapters

    I'm not sure the defenders have had the problems that the mustangs had. There were some minor problems in the early years, but I don't read about many problems in the later years.

    Trans adapters

    I have thought that the MT82 would be a good choice. Axis will make a one off for $5000 but obviously the price goes down the more that are ordered. I have a source for MT82 defender takeouts is anyone is interested. Seems like ?850-950 then shipping. If I go with the cummins this is the way...

    Doug, what auto are you putting in it? That is the setup I'm thinking about.

    Cummins Repower ISF 2.8 for Defenders

    I've been searching for info on this for a bit but I can't seem to find anything. What transmission would work on this build. I would like to use a Puma bulkhead that I have. It seems like if there was an adapter for the 6l80 with nicks adapter for the LT230 it would create I nice setup...
