Ok guys, we are going to start building up the motor this weekend. Probably won't need much help there but if you're in the area and want to stop by, drop me a line.

Weekend after next will be all about building up a roller chassis with the motor and driveline.

For sure. That will probably be when we start moving the body over. I hurt my back a few weeks ago and I've been hobbling around since, so we'll need all the help we can get.

This weekend is going to be a big weekend for wrenching. We'll be finishing up the remaining bits on the motor, mounting the radiator/intercooler, and we'll start moving the body over. If you were thinking about stopping by for a day or even just a few hours, this would be a great weekend to do it. We could use a hand, especially when it comes to moving stuff like this priceless, irreplaceable, pristine Tithonus gel top.

T-case and gearbox all bolted up.



Wrenched all day in the cold rain and wind.



Once the drivetrain is on the new chassis, we rolled it to the back of the shop and rolled the remains of the 110 inside.



Tomorrow should be a big day. We'll finish pulling the seatbox, tub, and tank and hopefully get them mounted on the new chassis.

I really have to give props to Brian Hall at Defenders Northwest. Thanks to his organization, expertise, and container shipping, doing this three hundy build has been a breeze.

The arrangement that Brian offers is unique: unlike most of the diesel swappers in the US, Brian is not in the business of doing the swap for you. Rather, he offers a service geared to amateur mechanics who want to do their own swaps and thus attain proficiency with their new motor. He's put together a master parts list and orders everything needed in bulk and brings it over in one big shipment. He provides the shop space, the specialized tools, hoists, etc., and answers my questions when I have them. It's the perfect solution for an overlander who likes to do their own wrenching but doesn't have the shop or hours to spend identifying and sourcing parts from the UK.

Back to the truck...

Rob Dassler sent a R380 and a LT230. As the old-timers here know, Rob is quite the prankster. After I told him that these boxes were going in my ex-MOD, Rob gave the LT230 a G.I. Joe paint job. Thanks Rob!



The motor went in last week:



I had a choice of injection pumps: new Genuine, rebuilt Genuine, or new Britpart. I went for the rebuilt Genuine and I think it was a good choice. The shiny IP came inside a sealed Bosch bag, in a Bosch box, rebuilt by the factory in Germany. Wunderbar!



Assembling a Turner block with new ancillaries is dreamy. There are no rusty fasters to break and no sludge to scrub off. It goes together very quickly.
