Tough Beast! Valued best efforts RedMM340! Since my schooldays I loved to have a short chassis/low bonnet but my family discouraged me. Now your article ignites the fire within. Thanks for the post.

Default Adapter Plate Ignorant

However, keep in mind that this conversion is not cheap. Most people may find it more economical to buy a used Scorpio.
It is a hard thing to confess, my whole family is Adapter Plate Challenged.

I know that CNC is computerized or numerically controlled milling (I am a high-functional A.P.C. person) but exactly where is the adapter plate located? What gets connected to what? Is it a fly wheel that fits on the Scorpio side and on the 340 clutch side? How much does an Adapter Plate cost generally?

Excellent my friend.And you are a true blue offroading lover too!I appreciate most that idea of putting a venerable 2.6L Scorpio engine under that classic hood.You have done what M&M should have done!But can I fit the same Scorpio engine on a Bolero?If yes,then Bolero will become the most beautifull and powerful MUV in India.
