Wow, awesome project!! A family friend had a CJ3b with the hurricane engine as a tractor/woodlot buggy/snow plow. The thing was unstoppable.

I just read this article about a Willys size diesel Mahindra jeep that will sell over here:

Thanks! Yes the Mahindra jeeps are cool. I would like to see one in person.
Made a little progress... Worked on the oil system. Finished my oil filter relocation plate. Figured out my turbo oil feed hookup, oil pressure gauge, and VW oil pressure sensor. Everything is close on the plate but it all fits. I need to work on the oil filter and cooler mount. I'm still waiting on my hoses and a few more fittings. Also need to order a fuel filter.









Since I have no need for the willys timing mark cover now.... I turned it into a key chain. Willy on one side. VW on the other.

I've always used Volkswagen Fox / Audi 80 mounts as they are cheap and work well!

http://fastforward.ca/motormounts/ is how I have done the mounts for my Vanagon conversions back in the day - much much simpler than making mounts that bolt to the side of the engine. Chop saw, drill press and welder - that's it!

Does anyone have any tips on running a v-belt on an ALH? I thought I saw somewhere a guy bolted one on to his stock crank pulley? Are there any older tdi pulleys with a v-groove that would fit the ALH crank?

Someone told me that the v-belt pulley from a 1.6 will bolt on to the ALH pulley. Can anyone confirm this?

Crank pulley - yes, same bolt pattern for the pre and post 2000 blocks.

Thanks for the info Hasen-

Well after about 20 hours of googling and online research I decided on a radiator for my tdi swap. I went with a 1986 Ford bronco II (2.9L) it was the right size and had the in/out on the correct side for my application. I will have to lower my mount about 1” to clear the hood, but my mounts aren’t original anyway so it’s not a big deal. I got this at advanced auto. With the online promo they are running right now it cast me $72 and it was in stock.







Its tight but it fits!



Fitted the rest of the front end temporarily fitted before I paint it. That way I dont have to hack into fresh paint......again! Im trying to figure out how I want route/install my intercooler and piping. I also need to mount my oil cooler/ filter and fuel filter....so much to do!!!! haha!








Skipping the inter cooler is financially temping and im getting tired....but I know that is a big no-no.....

Thanks guys! Oil & Fuel system is almost wrapped up. (The fram filter is just for mock up, it was the only one I had on hand) I still need to run my fuel return line and put some straps on the the hoses. Then its on to the coolant system and wiring.
