I gather from one of our Series one cousin's  in Germany, there is no such problem  over there, If you don't have exact build date , they a take a pragmatic view  and put a date within a year of the CKD kit dispatch date . Does it really matter  50 or more years on.

They do have a chassis number..

DVLA want proof of build of the vehicle not the date the kit was put together.

Hi,

Does this suggest that CKDs do not have a chassis number? Or that DVLA are being "snotty"?

Hi,

In a previous existence, I corresponded with several bikers who were not able to grip the brake lever on the handle-bars. They had all found the same solution ... turn the brake lever until it was pointing up ... then rest their hand on it, and push down. It seemed to be acceptable.

We had two blind programmers. I found the girl sitting at her desk, sliding a buzzy thing over the pages of a book. She explained that the buzzy thing was reading the printed text, and translating it into braille ... which she "read" off the top of the buzzer, with her finger tips.  Her biggest problem was clearing the garden after her GSD had "performed".

It would be interesting to see if DVLA write to Grandad Robs friend ... it might indicate whether doctors "dob"us in". Of course, just coz one does, or doesn't, may not suggest that they all do or don't.

We also had a girl thalidimide victim  ... no arms, but fingers on her shoulders. She used tp operate a microfilm reader-printer with her toes. She drove into work in an  adapted Mini. I was told that she could also fit a bit and bridle onto her horse, using just her toes.

Hi,

As commented by (I think) 109 +1, but rephrasing, DO YOU NEED ECONOMY?

Your bottom line works out at something like (Cost of the Conversion  + Overheads + Cost of Fuel) divided by the Expected Life Span.

I don't know how to factor in FUN ... but hey, your talking diesel, so obviously not interested in such mundane matters.

I've already mentioned a desire for a Honda VTEC engine ... Barbara's Honda CRX had the pre-VTEC engine, which I treated without mercy ... wind up to 7000 through the gears ... thats 40+/70/100, but I never found out what it would do in 4th, nor 5th (It did indicate 130 on the M4, but only once, and that was it 5th, so doesn't count). It never dropped below 40mpg.  Barbara was stopped twicee on the M4, at well over 100mph ... told not to do it again.  I assume the VTEC can beat that, seeing as I think it comes with a 2000cc engine.

Do a Google for the fuel consumption of a Honda CRV, and if it looks good, go and have a test drive.  :whistle  OK, I'm being silly. The price of a Honda engine would wipe out any savings in fuel cost.

But I can dream.

PS ... My understanding is that the VTEC engines have variable cam timing. There's posh!

PPS ... Does anybody have figures for an S2 fitted with a Ford V6? OK, it's petrol ... but diesel is becoming a dirty word. There are towns that won't let diesels in.  V4? Has anyone ever fitted one? I didn't notice my Tranny V4 looking for more power, even when towing my caravan, maybe because I didn't ask for it. My V6 Tranny LWB "Hay Wain" was a stormer.

I think the Daihatsu F50 (TAFT) used a 2.5 Diesel, and I don't think it had anything to do with Perkins   ???

If he has actually got a Perkins Prima TD it will be 2.0l, and probably one of the most fuel efficient 'Wrong Engine Transplants' available in a Series LR.

Patrick's daily drive SWB has a Perkins TD (without intercooler) - it will go off the clock if you want it to (with overdrive), and returns up to 40mpg without really trying.
Probably more suited to a SWB though, unless an intercooler is fitted.

Here's one of my previous vehicles, with a Perkins Prima TDi, towing a bit of weight   :tiphat

Covid-19 issues ???

Yeah, just had a reply from them. They are waiting for bits to arrive, bits they said were in stock?! Just a bit better communication would go a long way.

Perkins use a cylinder-count.capacity-in-cubic-inches nomenclature.
4.203 = 4 cylinders 203CI = 3.3litres
4.236 = 4 cylinders 236CI = 3.9litres

The Prima was 2.0l, so would have been 4.122, but I don't know if they actually referred to it like that.

Chris.
