    Yes, and no.
    He did for a while, then had a noise, had a trip planned so swapped the lt95 back in, as you do, now he is waiting on a different ratio msa box to turn up. But i'm sure he can explainIsuzu MSA gearbox shifter conversion.
    He did say he really liked the msa though

    Dodgybloke was that you I saw a on US Forum building a Dodge WC in Australia using Isuzu 3.9 . if I find a need to repower my Power Wagon I'd think about going the same way . What diff ratios are you running? these trucks are originally 5.83, I changed to 4.3 ring & pinions . I'm running 10.5x35R17's and the 230 is only good for about 90kmh @2600rpm .

    if your running original axles with the Budd pattern I got some 17x9 tubeless rims made locally, they are an item now if you need some.

    Damien, You have an MSA gearbox don't you? What type of shifter do you have, and are you happy with it? Sheldon told me he'll be building a shifter for someone else soon, but he didn't elaborate.
    I've discovered that AM's VW shifter is based on a generic item that goes into VW, Seat, Audi, Skoda vehicles.

    Hi Goingbush


    Apologies for being slow to reply.

    I don't post a lot but I have mentioned it on a US forum. Yes it is an Isuzu but it's the 4bg1. In terms of dimensions it fits in the engine bay well.

    In terms of diffs, I can't comment, I'm not using the standard diffs. I'm using newer diffs from a Dodge Ram.

    I've seen a few of your posts on the PW you have. Good work, and very hard to get these in Australia. It's come up well.

    If you would like more info on what I've done happy to share.

    And now this has happened, so I'll have to count my pennies.
