Re: 110 top speed

you are looking at around 80mph but youll only see this on long flat
motorway runs or downhill slopes ..

generally speaking 65/70mph is the tops because the engine doesnt pull
that hard .

I got my SWB 2a with a 2.5D engine in up to 84 once (according to the
GPS)

That was just after i rebuilt it with new rings and stuff.

It wont go that fast anymore, but will cruise at 60-70. Before i
rebuilt it, it would only cruise at 55-60.

I had mine up to 70+ once, never again, too much concentration required. 50
to 60 is much better, don't have to worry about overtaking, and even
following caravans is OK. Stress free motoring.

out, or P if I was going downhill.

I'll have a look behind the sunvisor tomorrow. I did once work out the
ratios for each gear and stored the results behind there. This was only
about 18 years ago so I expect the paper will still be there in the morning.
ISTR that third gear was exactly correct for the speedo such that it pulled
2000 at 20mph, 3000 at 30mph and 4000 at 40.

As far as practical limits, then 70 is possible but a practical maximum is
about 60.

I had mine to a steady 80 once, but the exhaust was broken (clean
break by the gearbox) so that might have something to do with it.
I think 60 is more relaistic.

Driving my landy around with a broken exhaust (below the passenger
seat) - made it very slow and loud.
For a while i had an exhaust that was about 4 foot of pipe with an old
cherry bomb on the end. This gave me lots of power when pulling off,
but top speed was worse.

Yep, still there. The speed at 4000erpm, which is where maximum power is
rated is third 40mph, fourth 60mph and fifth 70mph.
That is if you want to run the engine virtually to the governor.
80mph in a standard NA diesel is wishful thinking. The thing would go 'bang'
in short order.
