LOL NO! But if I stick with what I'm doing I should be done in a week or 2 depending on when parts arrive.

I have heard about the bio diesel thing for a while, one of my friends is big into it.

So, what ARE you doing there, Mike?

Side note, almost done with the Megasquirt install in my Jeep..... just finished fitting the multiport manifold to my 258.... and Mopar wants $2200 for the kit... pffffffft.

I'm going with the 4.0, the 4.0 front cover but one that is set up for a distributer. Maybe once I have had it running for a while I'll fix the Megasquirt (like over the winter) and put that in and play with that. I think if I do put the MS in I want to get wide band O2 sensors, it seems to make the most sense.

EXCELLENT!!

(I didn't get to read your post... So, if that's got this information in it as well, I apologize... More information though...)

Mike, a real Tcase in my opinion would be one that you can twin stick so you can shift the front/rear seperatly. Front digs...now that is a world of fun

That and I'm biased I've changed dozens of LT230's because they've blown up (gears, bearings) and these are stock daily drivers, so no way would it be my first choice offroad.

You might wanna look into a 4.3 Vortec engine. They are cheap, good aftermarket and light to boot.

True, you can...Timm Copper does a part time conversion kit, last time I checked it was around $400-$500, and your still not twin sticked... Then there is the question of it holding up, that I can only imagine wouldn't be long...

Pete, I think Vinny is building a 4.6 rover motor with a supercharger for his rangie. You should give him a call Mike. IT will have more HP then that and it will be rover.

Don't hold your breath, it has a long way to go before it's done...but it should be cool when it is...can you say major machine work...hehe... My problem with that is parts are expensive and hard to find, there is nothing like flipping through any speed catalog and ordering all the parts you need to fix/replace/upgrade a broken chevy or ford.

So far (knock on wood) the drive train in the 110 is holding up to the TVR/Rover 5.0, and it's been about 13,000 miles now.

A lot has to do with how it's driven, imho. Although I do occasional chirp here and there, I try to be mellow with the amount of power I let loose when declutching, and there's no planting of the foot on the accelerator in lower gears. No question that would flush out the AAA card.

I don't worry about it anymore, really -- although when I'm in a rock garden or a tough ascent, I've remembered so far to favor the drive train by not fully opening her up. Even when the engine was stock I dropped a driveshaft by being careless. I've also dropped axles in a stock 109 and a Triumph Spitfire, by pushing too much power too fast. Live and learn.

I'm certain that I could blow an axle apart this minute, just going down the driveway, if I wanted to. So it's all about driving style, imho. Hope these statements don't jinx me!!

Now come on, your going after the only redeaming piece of drivetrain that Rover has ever created. It is strong, very strong, the rest sucks.

I was just thinking that was the last bit of armor my truck needed underneath, to protect the pintel hook of course...

Yeah it just says you have to put a "newer" or from the same year engine and all it's emmissions junk into it, or it has to have similar emmisions to what the car had before. Not a big deal, we don't have emissions laws here in NH
