Iveco TD in a 110 one step at a time...

There were several versions of the Iveco 4 cylinder 2.5 and 2.8 liter Turbo Diesel engines.
These engines were used in vans, trucks, and the Land Rover PS-10.

I decided to install one in a 110 using the large vibration absorbing Mercedes hydraulic filled motor mounts.

The 110 that original had a 2.5 liter 4 cylinder.
Notice the stock frame mounts.

LH Motor Mount

The engine was a bit of a squeeze on the LH side.
The motor mount on the frame was cut off, moved back about 5 inches, turned around, and welded in place.
This was unavoidable because the stock oil filter and oil cooler housing needed the same space.
In every other kit I have built, the frame mounts bolt on top of the original 2.5 frame mounts.

RH Motor Mount

The RH mount was easier, but actually took longer because of the distance to bridge.
Note how it fits right over the stock mount tightly and bolts in place.
So the only cutting and welding is on the other side (LH)

Stock transmission mounts work fine = No change...
We made a custom adapter and backing plate to mate to the Land 4 cylinder short transmission belhousing used with 4 cylinder engines and a custom flywheel to take the Land Rover pilot bushing and 9.5" clutch.
I'll get some pictures and add them to the thread.

Robert,
Will this be another kit you make available, or just a Sunday afternoon one off?

I'll offer this as a kit, but the buyer will have to wait on the machine shop schedule for manufacturing.
We only have 3 of these engines and they will go fast.
One kit is finished (as shown in the thread) and we are only making 2 more kits to match our current stock of engines...

Robert great work as always but really love that adapter!

Doing a quick search on them - sounds like the Iveco's are a lot like the 4BT but smoother. power output seems to be in the 125HP/200lb/ft range.

The pump is really easy to adjust.
With intercooler, manual boost controller, and IP adjusted for more fuel, should be a nice power plant for a 90 or 110.

Finally had a little time to clean up and paint the frame in the engine bay.
The 4th fitting for the engine was a charm and with the clutch on this time, it easily slid home.
The front diff, frame rails (left one was tight), and hood all clear with 3/8" or more.
Now to hook up everything...

Still waiting on the starter from Mean Green...
Hope they come through, if not, this will be the second time they let us down.
The starter has been paid for for 2.5 years when we were going to use them for the OM617 Kit, but they never came through and stopped returning my telephone calls.
When I reminded them 2 weeks ago, they said no problem, we'll send the starter right away.
Good thing it wasn't a rope for someone standing in quicksand.
