1981 500SD. Rough exterior, clean interior. Motor seems strong so far

Well done on the seat mod. Probably my biggest reason for not owning a 110 right now was lack of leg room (getting kids in and out of car seats in the 2nd row) very cool.

Thanks man! It was my #2 priority 'large project' when I bought the 110 a couple of years ago. It is well worth it, but as mentioned before I would out-source it to someone with a few under their belt. I managed... but it was a PITA and cosmetically is probably a 80% solution.

Listed at around 3700 lbs... Even with brand new suspension on the suburban, it had us sitting low in the rear. We managed to do ok despite the terrible roads in Virginia!

Dave, thanks for the great thread. I am the proud owner of a new to me 1986 110. I will bring it home when my time overseas is done. Your modifications have me stoked and I will be copying a few of them.

Those W126's do look heavy but are very close to weight of a W123. And lighter than a Defender.

I still have a ways to go but let me know if you have any questions on the OM617 swap.

Thanks! I will definitely be reaching out once the prep and install begins!

Made it out to the 390SD to take my first long look at the donor engine. It wasn't running when I picked it up. All it took was a good prime of the lift pump and it started immediately and ran relatively well for an engine that hadn't run in 6 years.

Some notes:

-It appears that the hydraulic engine mounts have deteriorated to near nothing. Will need to find new ones for the RD kit

-throttle linkage is severely boggered. Sticks through all range of motion

-will need valve adjustment, naturally

- minimal blowby, which I was thrilled about

- even with half the exhaust missing, smoke is minimal even with throttle open

... Things are looking up. Now I need to find a good day-off to pull the engine and get the car to the scrap yard

Sounds like you got a solid motor - crazy it ran after 6 years but I think that is one of the pluses of the om617.

Finally got the om617 pulled from the 300 this morning. This was only my second engine pull so it was a little slow going, mostly because of knackered fasteners and such. I was also working in 'backyard' conditions with just hand tools, drive-up blocks, a 2 ton lift and a tractor. I used the tractor to pull the car around, which was slow but a life saver.

I pulled the engine with the trans, then removed trans once it was on the ground. I have another morning's work ahead of me getting it cleaned and removing unneeded ancillaries then I'll start prepping for the arrival of kit pieces from Robert Davis!

Just read through your thread, very cool. Truck is looking great!

What 2nd row did you end up using? Early photos showed a tan unit out of a Suburban I think you said, but the final install was black and looked a bit different?

You've done a great job of slowly updating the truck without loosing the original patina and character.

A few more quick questions:
What size wheel/tire did you end up with?
Was the SS hinge a kit or did you just source all the various hardware?

The 2nd row is a disco 2 seat from ebay! Suburban seat wasn't the best solution and I scratched it after mockup. Disco 2 requires tub cutting and mount fab but is doable and well worth it!

The wheels are wolfs, the tires are 255/85r16 km2

The hinges were stainless kit from paddock

Thanks for the kind words!

Robert gave me the word that the kit would be delivered by the 17th so I pulled the 2.5... No going back now!

As I've said before... This project is taking place in pretty rudimentary conditions. The 2.5 pull took place in the dirt. The lift stayed stationary and we pulled back the 110 with a tractor. I blocked and tarped the motor right where I pulled it.

Next is to prep the engine bay. Looks like wiring should be pretty straight forward - plumbing may be a challenge if local vendors don't have what I need. Going to go intercooled with a 200tdi setup from doug.

The om617 is ready for install of the Rdavisinva kit.. Just waiting on the kit to arrive and the green light

Looking good dude! I have your transfer case, radiator and intercooler ready at the shop. Let me know, I could possibly meet you in Fuquay if that will help you at all?

Brian - thanks man. I am out of the state right now prepping for the move but have no issue coming up to raleigh when I get back, maybe Sunday the 14th if that works. Otherwise it will be the 18th or 19th. Your call... I'll text you towards the end of the week!

Been working overtime to prep for install. Brian hooked me up with a transfer case swap to 1.4... Doug sold me a great 200 tdi rad/int setup... Don't know what I would do without d90source!

Oil cooler lines (jegs stainless) and all fittings are ordered... All other plumbing I'll source locally.

Most importantly, the bulk of the kit finally arrived today and the oil pan is (as others have stated)
most impressive.

All hardware is present... Some of which I don't know what it goes to but will figure out eventually. All the required brass fittings for the oil pan and blanking plate for the EGR included as well.

I also drug the 110 across the yard from where I pulled the 2.5 closer to a spigot so I could prep for degreasing/etching the chassis in the engine bay. I'm coating it with Por-15 while the engine is out.

Looking great!n RD's oil pan is so nice. I have a grin every time I am under the truck and catch a look at it. Wish I pulled the intake and exhaust - would make for an easier time cleaning.
