Like the subject says, I just bought a 2000 Land Rover Discovery with an Isuzu 4BD1T diesel. Thats a 3.9 liter, turbo, basically a 4 cylinder version of the Cummins 5.9 in many dodge diesels. It is the engine that is in the NPR box trucks.
I am trying to get a kit put together for this thing and I might be buying different parts from a few sources.
I do have a question for the group though. I noticed that on the Frybrid kits for the Dodge, there are 3 x 3 way valves. Anybody know why that would be? This thing has a really simple in-line pump, none of the goofy plumbing like a 7.3 has, more like my 2003 VW in that regard. I really like the GC 6 way valve with the toggle switch and would prefer that option if would work.
Another issue I was looking at is location of the veg filter. I have seen installs where the filter is in the trunk/bed. I like that idea because it would just work better in terms of space. However, you take the filter out of the looped return, and therefore get less filtration of the oil. This concerns me to some degree. There are filters like the Vormax that are supposed to do a great job, so maybe one pass is enough? I could also put two more conventional filters in the back to I get 2 passes, rather than 1. Thoughts.
Anyway, I'll keep you all posted on the conversion, should be a pretty cool project. If you have any tips/suggestions, let me know.
