    Excellent work! I put an L99/6L80 (6.2L from 2012 Camaro) in my 1988 LR Defender. You are going to be very happy. I do recommend you gusset the top of those engine frame mounts. You will be surprised how much stress they take. Here’s a pic of mine:

    Holy balls that thing probably moves. I plan to run a simple plate between the mounts. Should be sufficient, I hope lol

    Update:

    The weather killed me yesterday, wasn't able to get to exactly where I wanted. The hose fwas frozen so I couldn't finish cleaning and painting the motor.

    But, the engine mounts are welded and painted. Oil pan was removed and cleaned, all gaskets were done. Boring stuff.

    I'll have pics of everything going in tomorrow, finally have a day off to make some serious progress.

    wow.

    even the spark plugs....


    funny story.

    at the old oregon asphaltic paving there was many years ago a 400 pound mechanic. he could not get the plugs out of the fleet of chevy trucks they ran because he was too fat to bend over the fenders.
    SO HE REMOVED THE FENDERS! TO CHANGE SPARK PLUGS!! on every service.
    true story.
