Land Rover Defender 100
Here we have a custom wheel base Defender Land Rover that came to us after sitting many years. Originally a gas powered truck which was then converted to a 300 TDI using some M and D engine mounts for a brief period of time and then the owner decided they needed more power. A 2.8 International diesel was sourced, the 300 TDI was pulled, a lot of wires were cut and the 2.8 was just bolted in with no fuel lines or wiring completed, fenders loose, hood closure issues and a few other mysteries and then the truck sat for three+ years. First step will be to make the 2.8 look like the 300 TDI for coolant routing, intake routing and mount a remote oil filter. Next will be to remove all old fuel lines and begin re-plumbing the truck for biodiesel. Third will be to dive into the bird’s nest of wiring. Fourth replace inner front fenders and change spring mounts.

This truck is undergoing a frame off restoration. Although not a diesel conversion it will be getting a more fuel efficient gas power plant with many other upgrades.
