Bill, we may need that chipper at MAR this year in case there is a log in the path.

Who needs a Rover when you have a nice tractor like that? You can cut some nice trail with that machine. Make a little test run. Very nice pieces of equipment as well as the barn/garage.

Project sounds treats. Your list is pretty much what I would do if I had a IIA and a bunch of space and time to work with. Good luck and please keep the pics coming.

You got it. Add the clamshell tailgate with swing out lower to the list of features.

So I'm looking thru the Defender parts catalog looking for the heater control valve for a 2 or 300 tdi and I see nothing. It appears that the heater always has engine coolant flowing through it regardless of where the dash control is set. I guess the controls are used to open a flap on the heater box, there by allowing warm air to be blown into the cab via the blower motor. I guess I have shin burner mentality about these things as the Series trucks had a control valve on the engine that opened and closed to control the flow of hot coolant in the heater.
Looking for a Unified Theory about heating the 109 project.

Wait...are you sure Doug? My heater box has two wires and 2 cables going into it. The wires obviously for the blower motor, and one cable for the recirc/"fresh air shutoff", and the other, I assumed was for the hot/cold setting?

There is a control for the flaps in the kneebox (the one used to control airflow from either the windshield vents, or the windshield vents and feet) but that's not the one I'm talking about.

Yup, leaning toward that solution, but I'm kinda not keen on holing the wing, especially cuz the "Diesel Powered" badge goes where the hole would be.

How about a Kodiak Mk I style intake on the inside of the passenger wing/radiator panel area? (see link). Better yet you could do it in the style of a later Kodiak where the intake hose runs inside the engine bay down the the radiator panel. I would bet Ike Goss of Pangolin might have parts for this. You may even be able to use the heater core/blower from a new RN Mansfield and route the hoses like you would for a Kodiak. I'm wondering if you could rotate the heater/blower 180 degrees so the intake faces toward the engine bay (instead of the passenger wing). You could then attach an elbow to the intake, attach a dryer hose to that and run down the inside of the engine bay (passenger side) to the radiator panel just under the passenger side light for fresh air. I went with the Mk I style as it's rare and was original to my Series II.

Yup, Ike's on my list of people to call. I will probably have to throw myself at his feet and beg for mercy.

Fruitful harvest at Ron's. I have a gearbox and some much needed odds and ends. Now I'm having second thoughts about the manual trans and thinking about putting in the ZF slushy.
I will certainly go forward with the R380, but in the back of my mind I will always wonder if I should'a.

yes I'm sure. the heater hoses attach to the two exposed male ends which are the inlet and returns for the heater core. coolant flows through the heater core 100% of the time the engine is running. take one apart to satisfy your curiosity-I did.

ed the hot/cold setting cable is controlling just how far the flap is open between the core and the plenum.

Bill, do you know what those emblems are from? Looks maybe like Dodge?

I have those badges on my 67IIa also, they are on the front wings. I think there was also a grill badge that was traded by a PO.
