With the lack of response I took the plunge and ordered the adapter plate and flywheel. Should land this week so I'll keep you posted as to it's suitability. All the best Tim

All looks good so far. The 4 smaller bolts supplied are the wrong thread and I've received a bill from Fedex for import duty I wasn't expecting Big Cry The starter motor bolts hold the plate off a little so I ground out the back of the plate with a dremel

Ive yet to try gearbox but a quick glance at lining it up before it was attatched to engine seemed ok just need to either drill a small hole for locating dowel on gearbox starter cut out or grind it off. Confused

Sender and fuel pump from Lexus too short to fit directly so I took it apart and put fuel pump in swirl pot from defender tank. I had to change pre filter from a side mounted one to a centraly mounted one.
