Hi all, I am working on getting a D110 and plan on swapping out the transmission for an automatic, so other family members can take part in the rugged goodness of the defender. Talking with many different folks there are many different opinions on the right way to approach an auto conversion...
I have a 1992 Defender 110 and I'm working on it for more than 1 year in Chicago. It has original 2.5 diesel engine on it and I would like to swap with LS3 or similiar engine. Where can I get those engine conversion kits ? Do you have any recommendations for any engine shops in IL?
Ok so here goes. Been working on the project since Aug 2016. Damn its going slow and not even to the fabrication side yet. Maybe Ill finish in the next few years. Ideally get to fabrication stuff this Summer.
I know that along the way I will run into issues and figure there will be plenty on...

So after the car was steam cleaned at the weekend, the ignition switch & starter started playing up.

Does anyone know a rough cost to swap the twin SU carbs for a single Holly or Edelbrock one. A local shop estimated $500-800 in labor, but now my tab is around $1300 in labor. Does this seem high or about average.
Here's a list of what they've done.
- removed intake manifold and old carbs
I am getting ready to take the plunge on a 4HP-22ZF auto / Borg Warner T-case swap in my 110. I should have done this along with the install of the new 3.9 this year but wanted to drive it a little more with the LT77 before making a decision. I don't do a lot of off-roading (mostly beach) so I...
I've been watching the LS3/LS4 conversion thread as well as the Cummins Diesels with great interest. I know that Nene Overland (and a few others UK-based outfits, Wildcat, JE, & others and there are US-based operations too) offer a "kit" and would do the work too.
My thoughts are to...
If i wish to upgrade a 1988 Defender 110 dash to a td5 style dash, are the new style dash vent controls, that work in a td5 style dash configuration, a direct bolt on or is there some modification that is required to make them fit/function correctly.
