i,ve never found one but a couple of alfa engined statos on here that might have a better chance of having such info.. i have a busso on a stand if you need rough measurements
Thanks for that offer. May I come back to you once I've got the exact measurements of the engine frame and the exact centre of the prop shaft as datum points?
The three main issues are:
(i) that I have to squeeze the engine between two sets of parallel horizontal bars and have a bit of height to play with above and below;
(ii) the Jaguar lump is long and heavy. The Nord is light and short and the Busso in between. I need to think about front/rear balance and not have the engine too far back and lose the balance; and
(ii) I need to ensure that I can fit the gearbox at the right height.
I can't alter the engine frame, cut into the bulkhead or alter the transmission tunnel and hope to obtain an age-related plate, so this is all a bit delicate.
I know I should probably just put a Series 3 XJ engine back in there and I know I can get other RWD combos in there (because others have done it) but the devil in me would really like to know what a 1966 Jaguar chassis and suspension would feel like with either a Nord or a Busso.
With the Nord, I wouldn't have torque or top speed of the XJ but it would probably be a little screamer up hill and down dale, and with a properly fettled Busso who knows?
