It is - the 2.0 and 2.2 are PSA/Ford - so could also be had from a Mondeo, but all are FWD (only petrol X-types got 4wd). The RWD Jag diesel in the S-Type, XF, and X350 XJ (2.7 V6) is good for 200 BHP and 40+ MPG - but it's probably a bit high tech for what you need - came with a six speed manual box in the S-Type though. Basically the same engine but with single instead of twin turbo is in the Landy Disco 3, and Peugeot 407 and citroen c6. All probably a bit recent for a reasonable price donor car.how about a modern ish jag as a donor, the 2.0 diesels basically a ford underneath right? might be abit pricey for the engine though
Ady, I could have sold you my 325tds complete car along with the van, but delivery would maybe have made it too dear anyways. I'm thinking of putting the 325tds and manual gearbox into a '55 or '56 second series panel van to use as a 'shop truck. Too busy restoring that '57 Chevy truck to get near it just now though.Hey, there seems to be a shortage of 325 or 525 BM's for sale so do you guys think a 330 or 530 would do the job OK or is there a reason that loads of you say get the 2.5 litres?
that looks very much like a cummins 6bta ,,,Hi,
Saw this in Spain last month at High Rockabilly, bloody great truck diesel engine in this sedan, looked completely mad and sounded great !
Ignore the date on the photo, I took it with an i phone app and it put the wrong date on the photo.
