2.5 NA diesel

I have a 2.5NA just removed from a 110. This engine has approximately 60,000 miles. It was my daily driver, extremely reliable. I have just about all pieces you need to put this in a series truck from fuel filter with lines to exhaust down pipe. I do have a usable clutch and pressure plate, but they are not installed on the engine. Collection of this engine is the responsibility of the buyer. I can help loading with a shop crane. Any shipping you have to arrange. Price is $800.00 OBO. Thanks for looking

Hey man I'm looking to replace a blown Perkins diesel in my 66 series IIA. I'm on Long Island so shipping wouldn't be too bad. Do you have any pictures?

Thumbs down

Yes, I have attached three photos, I can't get the video to upload. If you PM me your e-mail I can send the video that way. Thanks for your interest I felt this would be a great engine in an 88. It would pull my 110 to 60 mph on a flat with 33 inch tires.

My 2.5 NA is still available. I have almost all parts to install into a series truck from fuel filter and lines to air cleaner. It's taking up space and Momma says it has to go. Thanks for looking at my post.

Synonymous!

Newman and 2.5 N/A have become synonymous!

2.5 na

The Engine has approximately 60,000 miles on it. It does smoke on start up like most NAs do. But clears up quickly. The engine uses no oil. The timing belt was replaced about two years ago.

Just my version of "Born Free". This would be funny if mine hadn't yacked a front cam seal yesterday.
I am working on the logistics. Fastenal can't service this. Dam!

We have some clandestine efforts underway involving the 2.5 N/A that can't be divulged at this juncture, but stay tuned for 2.5 hybrid rejuvenation efforts.

This is currently on the drawing board, but if all goes well, it's safe to say that home grown TDI evolution is in the future.

Please make it better than LR's TD debacle.

This is exciting news. I had been looking into this very thing.

Port and polished head would be the easiest thing to do to a NA. Anybody have any experience with this?

hahahahaha hahahahaha the mental image of a bunch of 2.5 NAs in a field eating grass was too much

------ Follow up post added June 26th, 2014 02:20 PM ------

I am sure you know this topic comes up often with NA engines of every class. It usually fails die to tolerances in the engine itself plus the cost of kit.

I wish you luck but I've never heard of this being a practical option for any engine

I am looking forward to the option of having a well done performance enhancement on a stock rover 2.25/2.5 motor. I'm sure a lot of people are. I've had a lot of time to think about it while working on the Series and I don't want to immediately do any major conversions to her. I want to drive her as intended for awhile and enjoy. Let her plod along in the field and graze if she wants. While at the same time a little tweek would not harm either. It's great news that he has been thinking about it

Agreed, I just have never seen this practically done to an NA anything, much less a 25 year old block.

Not saying it's not possible I'm just not overly optimistic.

All I can say is, if Robert Davis says he's on it. I'm feeling pretty optimistic. A home grown Davis. ACR/Turner but better. We have no shortage of 25 year old blocks. Brilliant.
