I can tell you that the TB42 with all ancilliaries is about 225kg. This includes flywheel, clutch, A/C pump, power steering pump and alternator, both manifolds and carburettor.

It has an alloy head, so will probably be a bit lighter than the TD42, but i wouldn't have expeceted nearly double.

For interest, i once did a conversion on a 1969 Lotus Europa. From an all-alloy Renault 16TS engine to a Toyota 4A twin-cam engine. The toyota engine had a steel block and an extra cam, yet it was 1kg lighter than the Renault.

No man......

Its not the red pants...

If you zoom in very closely you can pick up that there might be an issue with the radiator-fitment potentially resulting in cooling issues. :eureka:

Never mind the cooling system: power steering and air con go where? And I take it ample provision has been made for twin turbo application? :oldtimer: :rolling:

Ponies... My word that thing kicks out tyrannosaurus rex's.....hahahahaha

Peter, that TD42 head alone is a monster. For one man to pick that up is no easy task, add the diesel pump and turbo into the equation, one can burst a foofie valve... :surprised: :surprised:

Ground clearance is significantly lower than acceptable, but some OME coils and he is good to go
