    Sorry I can’t help,but would like to see pics of said P6:)

    Oh edit your postcode a bit don’t need to be that exact:)

    Hang around as often cars come up for scrap value for the whole deal cheap.

    I just recently sold a P38 on Uk plate for scrap as had thought about fitting the 4.0l to my 101 ...my mate who is an autotech said it was an easy fit as the early gems engines ecu are simple to swap over...
    If you have any parts let me know thanks Rob..

    3.9 & 4.0 essentially the same. Why not go4.6 and keep it auto:)

    Whatever you do please keep posting progress as a project thread, many will be interested :).

    Good luck
