Ok, back on track. It's been awhile since the last update...

Had a long weekend and finally got caught up with mowing the grass so I had a chance to do a few things. Got the Series 3 pedal box and booster mounted. Decided to keep the 2A clutch master (rebuilt) and adapt the resevoir for just one outlet. Worked on running new brake lines and tidied up the wiring some. The big thing was the engine is now in place! Used the left side Series mount bolted to the forward pair of holes in the block. Used the right side Series mount turned upside down and welded to the frame as I had read somewhere before. Worked out great. Still plumbing, wiring and odds and ends to do before I can get it started. Need to figure out the throttle cable and what to do about a pedal. Oh and the proper winch drive came in from HNJ Machine in the UK. Sorry for the crappy cell phone pics.

Not to thread hijack, but Mike, how does one prevent this on the 200tdi?

Is keeping the turbo shaft seals maintained and the breather cyclone draining the best way?

Any diesel will run away if it is allowed to run on its own engine oil. I had it happen to a John Dere tractor when the seal in the turbo went. I put the implement all the way in the ground and stood on the brakes till it shut down. No damage to the engine and with a new turbo it was good to go. Yes, keep an eye for any leakage around seals and consider high mileage replacement of the seal.

Clean breather cyclone & regular oil changes. Excess crank case pressure can blow the engine oil into the intake and then it's unstoppable runaway time.
Don't worry about it Ed it's a rare event. The engine will be very tired before it happens.
