Series 2 LandRover fitted with Austin Taxi 2.2 BMC diesel engine

Hi, A friend of mine from Sri Lanka is looking for a cylinder head for the
above mentioned engine. This engine was fitted to London Taxis some long
time ago also the Morris LD van and the Austin version. This was a local Sri
Lankan modification!

It's a boat engine. seriously... there was a chap in brum had one in a
canal boat, and also was a taxista, and some other taxi types said "'ere,
how come you've got a taxi engine in yer boat?" to which he replied "how
come you've got a boat engine in yer taxi?"

very underpowered. Try the taxi-repairing types would be my bet, there are
still a few of 'em in service.

horn, No more shall rouse them from their lowly bed."

Have a look in Exchange & Mart. The last time I wanted something for this
engine there were loads of places doing bits. Was a few years ago though.

The engine was designed for vans, and found it's way in to boats
(particularly narrow boats) as being a long-stoke engine it plod along
very happily at low revs. It also was flavour of the month in
Land Rovers for quite a while as the very good torque at low revs was
ideal for off-road use and was pretty much indestructable with , if I
remember right, a virtually armour-plated sump.
But by god does it weigh!
