FS: Everything from a 2.25L Petrol except the block

I am not even going to try to go through each individual part and list and price them, so here is the deal - the 2.25L petrol out of my '85 D90 decided to connect cylinders 3 and 4 by way of a channel cut in the top of the engine block. Everything else on the engine appears to be perfectly fine and in perfect working order, including even the head itself (with the obvious exclusion of the head gasket). If you need something for a 2.25L engine, I probably have it.

The engine had about 154,000 miles on it when it died, so you can figure all of the parts / ancillaries / etc. are about as old.

Contact me for availabilities, shipping is on the buyer, pick-up / RURR is preferred.

As for the block itself, I figure it will make a nice end table. Or I might take it out to a range to perform some penetration testing on it. *shrug*

For clarification, I would be willing to sell the block, but this is what you will be up against:

Did it have power steering? If so possibly interested in the pump bracket (ERC6974). Thanks.

It is definitely not a 2.5l Petrol? You would think a 1985 would have a 2.5.

The VIN is SALLDVAH7AA######.

According to this decoder, that lines up to a 2.25L petrol or 2.5L V6. It is definitely not a V6.

Regarding the date of manufacture, according to the letter I have from the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust, it was assembled on 11APR85.

Reading "the book", it says the change did not happen until August 1985. There you go.

South African Land Rovers had a 2.6 liter straight six version of the E series engine. Lets just say the E series was not one of British Leyland's finest attempts at engineering. Horrid in 4 cylinder (1485cc/1748cc), not much better as a six (2227cc/2622cc).

I should know my Dad had a one of both......

Ahh, thanks for the link to the decoder. Now I am concerned as my vin number on a recently purchased 94 d90 doesn't follow the decoder? What to do next....scratching head

And a little digging got the right info, it's a Cali spec model. Now to find what that means.

A couple words of advice to potential buyers. I'm pretty sure that in order to get the PS bracket to work you will need the whole timing cover. Unless you can confirm that your engine has the proper timing cover already on it.
Should get the whole PS assembly including hoses and reservoir.

As for the carb, better get the intake and exhaust mainfodls as they are different too. The std. carb is the 32/34 dtml which works a bit better than the weber 32/36 dg series which are sometimes sold as retrofits. IOW, worth the effort to change over. May want the downpipe too as that is also different. Or at least the first few feet of it to use as an adapter.

The cam is a different grind than the series trucks too.

Also worth having would be the oil filter adapter if it is the spin-on type.

Much appreciated, Ren... The truth is, I'll be yanking out specifically whatever parts people ask for, so do be specific .

So the whole engine has been yanked out of the bay and is sitting on the shop floor at the moment. Everything aft of the flywheel has been sold off, but everything forward is still up for grabs. Apparently my designs for an end table made from the block may need to be CANEXed - I neglected to account for the small detail of "cast iron". Apparently that thing weighs more than my safe. Anyone know of a range near Raleigh where high-velocity perforation of such things is permitted?

Anywise, stuff off it that is for sale:

Alternator
Distributor (supposedly new)
Spark plug wires (supposedly new)
Starter
Flywheel (recently resurfaced and, I think, with ring gear)
Head (and whatever else is in the head)
Carburetor
Whatever else there is attached to a 2.25L petrol apart from the power steering & power brakes.

I am not going to go digging for all of the prices on those, so contact me with what you figure is a fair offer and we will see what we can do. Go ahead and assume all parts have ~150,000 miles on them, except for the distributor and spark plug wires which were supposedly replaced before I purchased it, but I personally have no idea. I have the documentation on resurfacing the flywheel, though.

Jonathan, sorry if I overlooked it, but what direction did you end up going with the replacement engine?

Russell - I ended up going with the complete drivetrain (engine, automatic transmission, and transfer case) from (I believe) a 1995 Discovery; so a 3.9L V8. Certainly not what everyone would have chosen, but it fit our budget and our logistic requirements. While they're in there, I'm having the shop install a second gas tank, and then I'll start fiddling once it gets home to me (hopefully by the 18th of next month).

Tom - Digging into prices on those now .
