87 row d90

No more lurking. This is my attempt to start a build thread. I bought an 87 ROW from Italy sight unseen off Autoscout24.eu. I drove it for about a year and collected parts from the UK I had them shipped over via "Pack and Send" in Reading. Bought a flat roof, new TO axles, 300 TDI engine ZF trans and transfer case. Found a rhd Puma dash complete. About 9 months ago I tore my truck down and got started.

I pulled the body off in my garage and moved the chassis to my shop. Bought tdi motor mounts and a ZF cross member. Cut off the old and welded on the new. (tacked)

I want my truck to look like a stock Puma when Im done so I changed the rear cross member as well. Sent it out to a metalizer and the to a powder coater. I got lucky on the chassis, didn't have any repairs other than the additions. I tacked in some fixtures and made a little jig to get the new crossmember in correct.

Tore down the 300 TDI and it looked solid enough to run so I changed the timing belt etc, changed the seals, new gasket kit and bolted it back up. Forklifts are cheating, but its a good way to split the trans and transfer.

Dropped the engine and the rebuilt ZF in with the untested transfer.

Looking good, let me know when you want to talk about that rear fuel tank. ;-)

I decided to get the Allard VNT and their IC and found a Radiator from them on this forum. the outlet was 2 1/2 so I decided to make my own exhaust. wish would have just bought the one that the TDI guy sells cause it took me forever and I don't think the extra 1/2" is getting me anything.

I temp'd in the Puma Bulkhead to see what I'm getting into and the shifter was the first thing to deal with. I bought a kit from Nick in San Diego (LS Conversion is a rocket) and tweaked it a bit to make it fit in the side by side config. Its opposite but Im good with that. Going to change the shifters to a stock puma pair which Im in the middle of.

Thats pretty much up to date. I pulled my new chassis wiring harness today and temp'd the loom on the engine. I bought a stock gauge cluster for a Discovery and modified it to fit in the Puma Dash. The bulkhead harness should plug right in. Ill have to wire the AC/ Heater myself. Someone someday might figure out the Puma harness, but thats not me. I have a dfx file for the bezel if any one wants it. Bezel in the one pictured is just abs. Ive had one made of alum thats getting powder coated but you can get the idea.
If Anyone knows how to eliminate all the Immobilization crap from the ECU, I could use some help there. Also, If anyone in my area is running a 300 TDI i'd like to see one fit as well.

And brilliantly executed! Great pictures. Not one, but 3 flatbed shots, and a flaming motor mount thrown in for good measure.

I can't tell from the pics if you replaced all the suspension bushings or not - at least get the A-arm ball joint while you have everything exposed if you haven't already.

Looking forward to seeing this one progress. Welcome to the forum!

Thank You, Posted 3 pics on the flatbed for proof that a 2.5 td can reach speeds above 65mp. Yes I did get all the bushes. I found out that the front radius arm bushes are a different width on the puma axles from a board member. Ive gleaned so much info from this forum.Thanks to everyone.

Whats the deal with the oil cooler lines? Do they spontaneously combust on diesels too? Are they necessary? Can I use the radiator as a ZF trans cooler?
