Well I got the basics of the accelerator pedal install done and it fits fine for me. I built a small bracket to hang the pedal from out of square tubing. It bolts through the foot well. I reinstalled the brake pedal tower. Drilled a hole for the stock gm throttle cable (actually enlarged an existing hole). Made a small piece out of angle bracket that ill weld to the pedal to hold the end of the cable. Here are pics if how it will fit.

OK, I see what you did now. From your previous pictures it didn't look like you had the space to do it. Thanks for the new ones. I had forgotten that there were a couple inches between the bell housing dish on the bulkhead and the pedal. I have an insulation layer under the stock interior hardura layer so that space is taken up and no longer apparent. I had to go back and look at my installation pictures to see it.

Below is a picture of my installed Defender pedal in the stock Series location. I used an early 1990's Mustang 5.0 throttle cable and needed to add spacers to get the cable housing to cable eye spacing correct for the application.

Good point as per usual Jeff. The steering column is all done and can be installed easily. I should probably install the drivers seat too. I'm planning to heat and bend the shifter then trim it down as needed. My hope is to mimick the looks of the stock shifter.

I actually had a rhd shifter installed on my rig before so I'm used to it being a bit of a reach. That was a classic example of my laziness. I must have three or four proper shifters laying around and never swapped it out.

Robert those attached fine. That's quite a beast! You should start a build thread and share more details.

Daniel, how's the build coming?

ZOMBIE THREAD REVIVAL!!!

Hey folks. Long time no progress. My poor series project has been stalled for years. I moved and left the rig at my old place over a year ago, but it's moving home this week. A friend built me a gas tank and I just picked it up so the plan is to get back to work on this thing!! Hoping to move it to Sonoma County next week sometime and start making real progress on it asap. It's been so long I can't even remember what I have to do. I'll start by cleaning everything, going through the pile of stuff in boxes and ordering a bunch of new parts I know I need. Hoping to get it running by years end.

My goal is to have it ready for a trip to Baja in January.

Got it home in one piece! It doesn't look to bad after a bath. Not sure why pics are sideways.

You will roast like rotisserie chicken in that thing. No way can you move all that heat out of the engine bay fast enough.
I suppose you can heat shield it as much as possible but that right foot of yours is going to cook!

Solutions? Same problem if it were a LS-era V6? I ask bc I'm very interested in buying a 109, but I'd rather have a worthwhile & doable engine upgrade scenario worked out in theory b4 I buy one.

Hi Bill

Glad to see you're still here. I'm sure it will get hot when I get stuck in traffic just like it did with the 2.25 only worse, but I've driven several different rovers with this exact same set up and I have never noticed excessive heat as a problem. Have you ever driven one with a set up like this and had that problem? Thanks.

When the 109 was sporting the (big block) V8 years ago, it was an oven. I had the exhaust going from inside the frame rail to outside just behind the bulkhead.
The left cylinder bank was about 1/2 inch from the footwell. It sucked.
I will say that as long as you are moving more than like 25 its not so bad. Going slow on trails, not so much.
I'm sure that your experience will be different so pay no attention to my ramble....
