    @jelo - I have one in my workshop, so it's not a pipe dream. The problem however, is that spares are very difficult to find. I have had a defender 200tdi before, and I personally like the engine quite a lot.

    I was still getting to this, but I used a 2.25 diesel engine and a series 3 gearbox on this project. Personally I think a modern land rover gearbox and engine combination is too long for the 88 inch chassis, unless you move the engine and radiator carrier forward. But personally I like the recessed radiator carrier for aesthetic purposes. A long engine/gearbox combo creates some serious angle issues on your rear propshaft in an 88 inch. It can be done and I know Gary found a solution to this problem, but I stayed away from this....so


    Gary what's the solution to fitting a lt77 gearbox and defender transfer box into a 88inch coiler... I shortened a 110 and my concern is will the box and xfer fit without vibration bearing in mind that I want to retain the series front end look.

    Lots of 200 Tdi series in UK. Except for 2 studs on the bell housing it aparently is a straight fit.

    I am seriously considering the 200Tdi on my 88in S2A. Sans turbo. Turn it into a 200 Di. Then you would not have to worry about where the intercooler etc.

    So Skyfoor if you need space and want to let go of the 200 please contact me?

    Hate to agree but the Jelo Meister is correct - the LT77 was used in the 2WD car, the LT77s is used in the 4x4.

    The first problem that you're gonna have is a lack of weight on the back end....so get weaker coils all round. Longer shocks will only add to the prop angle.
    If you are using the transfer box, as in the LT77s, there's no problem. The rear prop is ridiculously short, basically 2 universals with a slider between them.
    If you don't use the transfer box (LT77) you will need a double Cardan prop as such

    and modify the gearbox output yoke to take the Toyota Cruiser drive shaft flange

    Been there, seen it, done it twice and will not go there again. Rather slot in the TC and save yourself a lot of hassle....

    Ok the lt230 Xbox is attached to the lt77s


    I thought all xtra box are lt230 on defenders just with different ratios.

    Almost forgot to mention the important stuff......

    I normally chop Rangys to 88" by cutting 12" outta the chassis behind the transfer mounts...... 12" is not much but it does add a couple of degrees to the prop angle.

    Cutting 22" outta Defender chassis is gonna change the prop angle quite drastically.......you may need cranked radius/trailing arms to relieve the stress on the mounts and the prop angle

    I prefer the LT95 box.....shorter, got the Rangy 1:1 ratio, built in TC and way stronger than any other Landrover box

    The effects of the vodka has worn off.

    While the vehicle was mocked I fitted the Rangie pedal assembly, brake booster and the clutch master cylinder to the firewall. This took a bit of fitting and fiddling. Luckily there was already a yonking big hole in the firewall where I wanted to fit the pedal assembly of the rangie, so I did not feel too bad by trimming it to the right size to take the whole pedal assembly. The angles were all wrong for the booster and clutch master, so I had to relocate them to the front of the firewall. This required many changes to the pedal assembly, mainly a shortening of the pedals, new linkages to the booster and master and a trimming of bump stops and return spring locators. After a bit of a faff, I got it right. The one upshot of doing this, well there are many, but the one that stands out is that it does not have the usual LR malady of leaking on your right bloody foot if there is anything more than a slight drizzle of rain.

    At the moment the loud pedal is sitting a bit high and gets uncomfortable after any amount of distance, so I have to modify that a bit. As usual, pictures attached.

    Another view of the semi completed firewall with all linkages, hand throttle linkage, pedal assembly, booster and master. At this point I still had to repair the many holes, missing pieces and warped bits.

    The start of the assembly process. The leading and trailing arms were a bit of a bugger to get in with no weight on the chassis, but I solved the problem with some 5 ton ratchet straps. There is a lot of detail in this process, but it is a hell of a job to type it all up. If you do have some questions, ask me and I will try my best to answer.

    Tub clean, repairs, spraypaint and fitting of galvanised bits. I had to replace all the tub stiffeners with replacement stiffeners as the old ones were literally rusted away.

    At some point I had acquired a 1969 series 2 diesel overlander with a 2.25 diesel engine that I was after that had not run in 10 years. I towed the bugger home, seizing a left rear wheel bearing in the process and losing the a-frame mounting points just as I pulled into my driveway (scary). I fiddled a bit with the engine and after bleeding the diesel through I managed to start it for a first run after 10 years in storage. Having determined that the motor is ok, this became my donor engine.

    I also collected a series 3 gearbox at the same guy I collected the series 1 body from. This was lying in the dirt outside under a little afdakkie.

    At some point I also acquired a FC series 2 gearbox. I then made a deal with a friend of mine who is an infinitely better mechanic than I am to check out the engine and gearbox in exchange for the FC gearbox, with me supplying whatever parts is necessary. The engine and gearbox was loaded up with a series 3 diesel landy and after refurb, was delivered by one of the most classic series 1's that I have ever laid eyes on. It was a true good moment when my series 2 engine and series 3 gearbox arrived on the back of a proper series 1 land rover. I am not going to post photos of this series 1 until I get a confirmation from my friend that I can do so.

    Some before and afters.

    Just got permission to post the photos of my friend and his landy. The first one is of the S3 diesel that did the pickup. You can also see the very cool FC in the background. The last two is of him dropping my engine off with his S1. He did an amazing job refurbing my gearbox and engine. He also put up with all my questions and what if worries. Thanks a lot Rhudi.

    @guy4ever, I did put in softer springs because I knew that the weight of the landy was going to be too light for normal springs resulting in a very harsh ride, but even so, it is very hard on a potholed road. It is however, very nice and smooth on tar or reasonable gravel. I will have to go softer at some point.
