Thanks John. Indeed I have a 200Tdi to an LT77. I think the transmission will need work -- just don't know how much, so if it needs a replacement rather than just repair I may go for the Stumpy as you suggest.
Thanks a bunch!
Andrey

You just need to make sure what engine and gearbox is in there.... If it is a Discovery 200TDI and/or a Discovery LT77, then what is needed is different. Being a converted truck, you need to investigate as to how the conversion was performed.

How about an engine picture and an interior picture?

Alright. The 110 was moved to Vermont today to start the lengthy restoration process. Hopefully we'll be done before it starts snowing again!! For those of you in south of Boston, there are still a couple of feet of snow in the ground in VT!!

Hey John,

Here are a couple of engine and interior pictures. From what I can tell it looks like the Short bell R380 would fit. Couldn't take better pictures or get underneath bc the 110 was on the flat bed and we ran out of light by the time we got to VT. Once it's on a platform we'll know for sure. But after driving it around yesterday it definitively seems like the tranny will at least need a rebuild and more likely a replacement...

Thanks for your help!

BTW, if you look at the web of lose wires you probably can see what I meant by "need to update electrical system"

I think what I have is actually an empty box that says air conditioning!!!
I have no clue what the hell was done in there... As much as I like the writing in Arabic, Russian and English, I think that box is coming out!

No sign of the refrigerant lines or ports? Adding a compressor is simple. Perhaps they just chose not to move it over with the engine swap. If the main parts of the A/C system are there, make it work. It is an expensive bunch of parts there.

But anyway. Looks like a normal Defender 200TDI in the stock location. You just need to de-hack some of the previous work and fix the problems you are having. There is no reason for it not to be quiet and comfortable, if you want.

I did not see any lines, but honestly it was getting dark and I had two hours drive back to Boston for a dinner ahead of me, so I did not dwell much. Also keep in mind the last engine I worked on was a VW bug 20 years ago... so it'll probably take me a while to familiarize myself with this one!

Given that we are painting the truck head to toes, we will start disassembling everything next week and we'll find out for sure what's where.

We did find out that they did a horrible hack job with the dashboard. Seems they removed all the original trays and posts to put in ventilation ducts (maybe when they added the A/C?) and covered it all with a cheap plastic cover imitation of the NAS cover. The dashboard will need replacement.

The best part is this weird, modern looking (as in probably installed in the last two or three years) red lighted switch smack in the middle of the dashboard that lights up when you press it but does not seem connected to anything.
