A while ago now, Dr Johnson popped round to help lift the 200TDi engine into The Duke. This was by no means easy, but we managed it in the end!

The best solution, I think, is to buy a new petrol down pipe then modify it to fit properly. For the moment though, this will do.
Final picture is of the fuel pipe adapter I made for the fuel pickup. This allows me to use 8mm hose all the way from the tank to the engine with no adapters and no need to modify any of the military tank connections. Didn’t take long to knock this up on the lathe and I kept the old pipe in case I ever want to go back.
