Chevy V6 & V8 Engines

This conversion kit is for the installation of a Chevy V6 or V8 engine to the standard Range Rover / Land Rover ZF 4-speed automatic transmission. The kit will also suit a Land Rover 109" or 110" wheel base including the Land Rover Defender and the Discovery fitted with the Rover alloy V8 engine.

NOTE: The front coil springs on the Range Rover / Land Rover will need to be upgraded as the cast iron GM engines are heavier than the alloy Rover V8 engine.

Engine Kit

The GM V8 engine kit consists of an adaptor plate that bolts to the rear of the engine. The standard Range Rover / Land Rover V8 bellhousing then bolts to the rear of the adaptor plate. The transmission does not need repositioning for this conversion as the GM V8 engine has similar external dimensions as the Range Rover / Land Rover V8 engine.
A spigot bush, spigot bush adaptor, bellhousing cover plate and all the required bolts are supplied with the kit

See below for kit information.

Engine Mounting

In addition to the Engine kit, Engine mounting kits are available to suit GM engines. The supplied engine mounts have been designed to bolt to the side of the GM engine and then bolt directly to the original Range Rover V8 pre 1996 / Land Rover V8 pre 1999 engine mounting rubber and chassis bracket. The original chassis mounts do not require relocation. The engine mountings have been designed to give you sufficient legal sump-to-differential clearance when used with a standard GM rear drop sump.

Flywheel

The original GM flywheel and starter motor are used for the conversion. The bellhousing will need to be modified to allow the starter motor nose to clear. If a hi-torque starter motor is used the bellhousing modification can be minimised.

When fitting Chevy petrol engines, a smaller 10.5" 153 tooth flywheel must be used as the larger 11.0" 168 tooth flywheel will not fit inside the original Range Rover / Land Rover bellhousing. Most Chevy petrol engines imported into Australia were originally fitted to an automatic transmission. Marks 4WD Adaptors manufacture flywheels to suit these engines.

The engines are externally balanced with counter weights fixed to the flex plate. The new flywheel fits behind the flex plate, thereby retaining the correct engine balance. Six new bolts supplied in the kit secure the flywheel and flex plate to the crankshaft, along with 3 new bolts to secure the flex plate to the rear of the flywheel. The flywheel has the same off set as the standard GM flywheel and has been drilled to accept the 10.5" flat fingered diaphragm clutch kit or the original Rover clutch.

Clutch Options

A standard 10.5" GM clutch kit can be used with the Range Rover / Land Rover 4-speed transmission as the clutch spline is the same (10 tooth).

A 10.5" GM clutch pressure plate and Rover 5-speed clutch plate can be used with the Range Rover / Land Rover 5-speed transmission.

A Range Rover / Land Rover clutch kit can be used but the GM flywheel will need to be re-drilled and taped to accept it
