Default Re: MM540 Series

Hi,
I would just like to confirm with you ,that as per your list does that mean that a MM540 registered new in Feb 1996 would be with a XD39 engine? Or was it available with the XD4.9P and the XD3P andit was upto the buyer to decide? The reason I am asking is that we recently got a 1996 MM540 ,,now on the tailgate it clearly mentions MM540 DP ,which I am lead to believe why go through the various forums on this website was the XD4.9P.

I would be very grateful if you could either let me have the specifications of a 1996 MM540 i.e. the tech specs that one would usually find in the owners manual or let me know which webpage would have these details ( Just to note that the vehicle we have is not the 4WD but is the 2WD)

Thanks and sorry for the trouble

Also the MM440 with F4-134 Hurricane.

2) 1987??89-1994 - The second batch of the MM540 had a flat belt like bumpers and the with diesel tank filler on the RHS. The differential ratio changed to 44/9. Engine remained the same

3) 1995-2000 - The XD3P was introduced in the MM540 along with a weaker new chassis which doesnot have the "V" crossmember at the back to fit the towing hook.

4) 2000 - The new look MM540 & MM550 was introduced.

Hi Anosh,

I own a 1996 MM540XD with XD3P (2498cc 72bhp).

The easiest way to know is to open the bonnet and check the starter motor, while facing the jeep if the Starter Motors is to your right its XD3P engined MM540.

Also you can check the engine block behind the water pump, there will be a small angled ledge, clean it and you can see the engine number XD3 Series will indicate XD3P engine.

Regards,

Arka

Thanks for the info ,checked it out and the starter motor is to the left af the block when facing the Jeep. So I guess it is the XD4.9P engine.

Though the registration is in the month of Feb 1996 I guess it must have been an old stock at the dealers when the first owner bought it.

Thanks
