Hi everyone,
I have a 54 plate master 120dci with a blown engine. The gearbox is 6 speed dash mounted. The cost of replacement engines is too high for an economic repair, however I can pick up an older engine that would have been mated to a 5 speed box with a floor mounted gearstick. Will the older engine mate up to the more mdern gearbox and what other problems might i incur.
thanks in advance.

Hello and welcome to the forum.:)

If you're thinking of fitting a dTi engine (not common rail) then I think you will have more hassle than it's worth.It will be a nightmare matching everything up and changing the engine loom/ECU/driveshafts etc.

What sort of prices have you been quoted for an engine?.We picked up one for one of our vans for around a grand with low mileage,it's still going strong some 170,000 miles later and still has lots of life left in it so the investment has paid off.

Hi Guys, thanks for the replys.

I've been quoted around 1500 for an engine. clean, straightish vans are going through the auctions at under 2 grand at the moment. So I might just as well buy another and break mine for spares, unless anyone knows where i might pick up a reasonably priced engine from. I'm sure they are about as I've just picked up an ldv maxus engine for £600 when they are making £1200 plus on ebay.

thanks for taking the time to reply.
