I have never heard of doing this before, but I am a relative newbie to this community. It makes total sense to use the parts off of the Land Rovers. I certainly want to see what it looks like when you are done. This is a really good idea.

That article is pretty darn cool. I read a couple of others while I was there too. It is interesting that the article notes that you can convert the 215 to diesel. I tried to do a quick ebay search for the fuel injection parts, but only came up with the ECU. Have you priced out the fuel rails, etc?

That's pretty darn kewl Keith and I actually had thought about doing this myself when I first bought the 61 -- there was a setup on ebay just before xmas for $200 -- I decided to pass on it mainly cuz my 61 is so clean as it sits that Im just gonna keep in original. I am interested in how it all runs out for you though -- I had some initial concerns on whether it would fit under the stock hood -- it looks like it sits higher than the stock AC -- as for the filter -- you should be able to go to your local Autozone and use off the shelf Spectre cold air tubing, couplers, and filter. I'd think it be pretty easy to make up with what they have on hand.

Have you measured out the clearance for the hood?

Keith--

I have no doubts the engine will run fine. I was just saying that Ill let you work through the details 1st -- with any retrofit there are bound to be snags that will come up along the way -- may not be the operation of the engine itself but how to make the connections to things to make it work as intended in it's new application ( ie gas pedal to throttle linkage, return line, etc... ). Im excited to see you do this and will be watching with eager anticipation! Smile

Keith,

I have a complete EFI set off a Rover of some sort. I bought it from a guy on ebay, I think It was 10 years ago. It is different from yours as the injectors use a piece of rubber hose instead of an o-ring to connect to the fuel rail. I was going to do this conversion and run megasquirt. I'd like to replace the front cover with one from a buick V6 with the distributor-less ignition and really clean up the engine bay. These are all merely plans, though, as life seems to be taking up all my time right now.
