200tdi, LT77 into 109" 6cyl FFR
« on: May 04, 2014, 11:20:51 PM »
Hi, I'm fitting:

200tdi
Galvanized chassis with new rear crossmember
Galvanized 4cyl firewall
LT77 5 speed via Ashcroft Transmissions 5spd conversion kit
Hystee Automotive Parabolic springs and power assisted steering
Station wagon tank

The Ashcroft Transmissions 5spd conversion allows you to fit an LT77 or R380 to a Series transfer case.
This pushes the motor 54mm forward.  Because the 6cyl chassis has the gearbox and transfer case mounted further rearward than the 4cly the 54mm push forward allows the turbo to clear the firewall and with some modifications to Series engine mount brackets allow decent clearance for a 300tdi exhaust manifold on a 200tdi.

Sounds like a nice project.

I'm keen to see more pics and details.

Hello TJWA,

Just wondering how the conversion is going with your 6 Cylinder FFR? It has been a while since you first posted up your thread.

Kind Regards
Lionel

G'day TJWA,

Did you buy the firewall galvanised or galvanise it yourself? I'd be interested to hear if you reinforced it during the dipping process and how it turned out.

Hi, I've fitted the parabolic springs and power steering (brilliant).  The station wagon tank has been modified but needs to be re welded as it's leaking.
I still have work to do on the chassis and the 200tdi sitting on it has been used a few times for spare parts now!  I've galvanized two firewalls, I did not reinforce either, just straightened them back out when getting them back.  Next time I will though, it's not fun trying to get everything to line up again.
