Using a short bellhousing R380 or a P38 steering box would avoid the issue.

Default Few update photos

Found these and thought I?d share. Shows the 2.8 in the truck with welded turbo pipe. Looks like he?ll since we pulled all new painless wiring harness

Mock up of trans tunnel you can see too. Looks like sausage out of the tube now but will take shape later

Fluids up next week and should finally fire off

That intercooler pipe looks nice! From the pics it looks like you are using the 200tdi IC location. Did you use rw-eng LT230 adapter to connect the AX-15?

Were you able to keep the 200tdi/2.5NA frame mounts in the stock location?

They used the 200tdi IC location and IC for now. I added a vintage air system and we have a powered fan dropping in. They are making a new fan shroud too

I used Axis adapter for the 2.8- NV3500 and the a custom one for NV to 230. 230 is in stock location

Frame mounts I got from Axis of their Jeep builds and welded to LR frame.

The swap wasn?t too bad but lots of little things to figure out. The complete swap of wiring harness took some time but will be worth it.

Got the motor up and running. Fired off. Quiet even with exhaust off.

Charging up AC next and then some rides around the block

Spoke with Chris Brown @ Axis today on the new R380 stumpy adapters. Much closer on a finished product just need a couple more measurements. The Cummins/Ashcroft HD stumpy r380 combo will clear left or rhd steering box's and will allow the engine to fit low in the chassis so no hood clearance issues. Plan is for it to be 100% bolt in for an 80's vintage 4cyl lt77 truck, ie no seat box, floors, or tunnel modifications. If you are looking to do one of these yourself please get in touch with Axis. The conversation today was that they will likely only do a small run to cover their and my needs plus a couple extra. The have been doing small runs of 5-6 adapters @ a time for different applications and don't like them sitting on the shelf.

Looks like we have two of these projects mating to stumpys and one to an Lt85 going now. A shop full of red. We ordered 5 of the radiator/intercooler combo's from the manufacturer to gain some economy. Building these is effin fun

Sorry if I missed this, but what about engine mounts? Your hard work has me rethinking LS swap.

What are their mounts using for vibe isolators? Stock rubber ones?
