    Hello everyone,
    first excuse my small knowledge with land rovers.
    I'm from Syria and i just bought a petrol 1974 series III 2.25 upgraded version (shown in picture) the original engine has broken and am looking for a good reliable easy to fit petrol alternative (can't change to diesel) i prefer japanese or german because they are easy to find in Syria, if not what is a good V6 land rover petrol engine since V8s fuel consumption is high as far as i know.
    thank you

    Put a carb'd V8 into it.

    Piece of **** to fit and set up.

    Consumption shouldn't be too bad either so long as it's set up right.,

    You can pair the v8 to a manual.

    Lt77 or an R380.

    As for autos.

    The ZF4hp22 would work.

    What’s wrong with the existing engine? What’s actually broken!

    Welcome by the way :)
