Missed the post you were relying too? So not sure what motor you refer too.
The early XJ's used a Renault 1.1L? dsl. Biggest POS Renault built except maybe the Duaphin or Le Car.
The later Euro/China market used an Italian VM dsl.

Isuzu has made a lot of different diesel engines. The old Chevy Luv was power by an Isuzu diesel. The 4BD is a medium duty engine. It was never used in a light truck application.

Great job on the swap I should hopefully have a 4bd1t in the next month or so(negotiations are going slow) to start a swap into my M. What radiator are you using in your swap? I'm thinking of using either one from a 289 Fairlane or one from a 4.7L NPR. I'm trying to keep the whole radiator and intercooler combo in the 3-4" thick range. Mostly just because the Rhino grill cuts down on the amount of space you have in front of the core support. But again great build and that's an awesome adapter you made!

The Cherokee has been parted. I still have the drivetrain, and I plan on building a Willys wagon with the part instead. Just haven't gotten started yet.

Did you end up with enough info/road time to work up the MPGs? How did she perform? I've commited myself to a diesel build and started with the 3.9 in my head and then waffled to the 5.9 The somebody unearths this relic of a thread and now I'm all in the head.

for JEEPINPETE on working up a great build ... and to KARL STREICH for digging this up.

LMAO. Unfortunately, no, I never got it on the road. I just took on too much then, and ran out of steam. In hind sight, I should have left the Cherokee alone, dealt with rust that was starting to creep in, and put the Isuzu into something else (like the Willys).

The Isuzu is in the same class at the Cummins 4BT. Real close in power ratings, and efficiency ratings. It will deliver similar economy as the Cummins. 23-25 on the highway was what I was expecting.

If you want some real world experience, get in touch with Dusty on this board. He actually got his 4BT on the road.

Is Dusty running the Cummins or the Isuzu? And thanks for the excellent write up! Let us know when you drop it into something fun.
