update. Well got a 3.9 disco so ripped out the engine and lots of wires and stuffed into the front of the volvo. Had to modify the sump but not the pick up pipe. Its a snug fit.
Had to fab some sort of exhaust manifold but due to the way the front suspension takes a lot of space they are prety small and sleek. I dont know how well they will flow, but who cares it aint built for speed.
Stripped of all the padding on the dash, welded a few holes up and where the clocks sat there was a big hole at the back and you could see all the back of the speedo. I decided to make a cover for this to tidy it up.
Have also made a bracket for the alternator and coil. Throttle pedal was via the discovery as well. Also started to install a new loom for the rest of the car. Leather electric seats also came out of the disco and look like they may make it into motor as well. Anyway more later, bye for now Matt.
