OM605 into landrover defender
I Hello all 
I brought a landrover trayback project a few months ago so I can get back into off roading again.  
It was a bare chassis and frame work perfect to build it the way I wanted. 
Didn’t want a landrover engine so i looked around at different options then worked out the cheapest option would be Mercedes, as this project was meant to be done cheap I went with a OM605 as the diner car was a good price and a good runner but with short mot. 
Anyway it’s mated to landrover auto box with a gazfab adapter kit, I was going to go mechanical pump but saw baldur did a ecu so I decided to go this way. 
Got the ecu and eventually did a quick connect up to get the engine started and see how it ran before I ran and terminate the connectors properly. 
Here’s a quick video



I didn’t have it running for long as I didn’t have no water in it nor have I got a exhaust on. 
That’s it for now it runs so I’m happy

Nice. Thought about something similar for a Range Rover Classic. Went off to Google the adapter plate you mentioned. Not cheap for a manual version!

Same brand - gazfab Google brought me to dieselpumpuk where I saw the price for the manual kit. Just checking again now though I see that it is for the BMW ZF manual box.

I knew I saw the kit on dieselpump uk somewhere - it just seems to be hiding in a different section
