Hi,

I am looking for an Rolls-Royce B40 MK2 engine as used in the early champs, land-rovers and Mudlarks. This is the model with the aluminium cylinderhead.

Also looking for a 12V startermotor Type M45 GN19for this as per attached photo

Anything considered

Yes we had one converted as a review land rover and did once have chance of another there was one at one time at DUXFORD.  A very nice truck to drive and it is no secret that l  love the B range engines

Hi,

Yes we are restoring an 81"land Rover.

@ Wally, do you still have some of this documentation on the 81"

Does your 81"LR by chance have a later Mk5 Champ engine? my Brother converted a B40 L/R a very long time ago and fitted a new  mk5 engine as the original Mk2 was scrap, the l/r was seen more recently in dealers barn in Cornwall ?

Hi,

 This one had fitted a 2.25 ltr Diesel engine, the Original B40 MK2 engine was still with it, but not complete.

Hi

Nice to hear another 81" Landcover on the way, the B40 engine fitted to the Land Rover was a Rolls Royce Engine and so had BSF Threads, as the Champ had the Austin B40 with UNF threads with can be tapped out,

Early champs I hear did have the Rolls B40.

I think they mad about 47 of these, But I came across list that some were sent to Australia,

best check the Land rover web site

I worked on one back in the, late 1970's which the Patrick collection(Birmingham) later bought.

They were know to brake the rear diffs.

Sorry to correct you but HUDSON only converted 33 to B40  81 inch and as you say they all had the ROLLS black B40 engine and most were registered with the 11 BC XX NUMBER series

My friends are restoring two of those landrovers at the moment. They managed even to find a NOS Rolls-Royce engine.
