United Kingdom 1988 Defender 90 V8 Petrol ST Shire Blue

“ Already done - it came out of a Range Rover and has the little cut outs in the inlet ports where the injectors sit. The other part is the CR stampede in the block. See - that makes me sound like an expert!”

...and both features shared with the 3.5.

United Kingdom 1988 Defender 90 V8 Petrol CSW Rimini Red

Thanks again - all useful and will be used when we get to the cam choice.


The first question....

I don't have masses of spares lying around or the bits from the donor vehicle that the engine came out of.

What spec bolts should I be looking for to connect the engine to the stand? One thing I found is bell housing bolts - 3/8 UNF 90 V8 CSW - 1988

Oh yes - a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, and I'm positively lethal!! Laughing

I should've said - I did check that too before committing money - it starts 36D2 and has the correct CR. 90 V8 CSW - 1988

Having a load of spares doesn't always help you Rolling with laughter

From memory I used 3/8" UNC x 4" socket cap, high tensile bolts to mount my 4.6 onto the engine stand. The length you need will depend on the engine stand you have but you can always pack them out with washers etc.

I think you'll find its a UNC thread into the block and a UNF thread on the gearbox end of the stud. 1986 127 V8 Build Thread

Excellent thanks

I usually find the more spares I have it just takes longer to find out I haven't got what I need...... Laughing 90 V8 CSW - 1988

Thanks, I’ve just added some twin port manifolds to improve the sound and they will be in place for the new motor. 90 V8 CSW - 1988
