Took me three years to find a relatively low mileage, black XJ with a 5 speed.
This one is staying mine for a long time.
Took the front axle apart today to put new seals and U joints in it and found a bad carrier brg so have all new ones coming in the morning. I would really like to get it back on 4 wheels for the weekend.

Here is a pic of the old and new.

Hard to imagine that littel 1.9 will move the Jeep.

Got the front axle back in and its new shoes installed.

That thing can be a monster with a lil tune, maybe a bigger turbo

with the new turbo and an ECM flash it should be 157hp/269lb-ft which should be a close match to the stock 4L. Bit less HP but a bit more torque.
That's all I plan for this one since its just a daily driver.

What clutch flywheel combo are you planing to use? i'm in the middle of planning this swap (alh) with a custom adapter plate ( with proper dowel and all) and right now i'm stuck at flywheel choice

vw flywheel(g60) and pressure plate(vr6) with old bmw clutch disk (e325 e30 from memory) you have to find some place for the starter and replace the ring gear on the flywheel and can't take that much torque ( about 300ft-lbs for non custom item)

All jeep combo
can take 450ft-lbs but need a spacer ( in my case) or to be redrilled to vw pattern wich doesn't fit between current hole custom flywheel was an arm and a leg

looking on your input and i'm interested on your cast bellhousing

(ps what angle did you tilt the engine mine is 30* from vertical which is 20* more then stock but alh are supposed to be 1G engine and can be run on there side)

My cast adapter is a two piece unit with dowels for alignment and a flywheel spacer/adapter. My company has been building electric motor conversion adapters for 25 years so we sort of have that figured out. ;>)
Going to use the stock 4L flywheel and starter.
The unique setup of the adapter lets me fine tune the clocking once its in the Jeep. So if it needs to tilt a bit more to the drivers side I can do that. Once its in position then it gets bolted solidly in place so it can't rotate any more.
I was supposed to see the first castings last week but they got delayed, I hope to see them this week.

Very nice! Is that a BEW? I've got an ALH planned for my XJ. Been looking at HPA Motosports bits. I'm not a fabricator so some pre-made parts appeal to me. Also the CAN<->CCD bus widget looks neato. If about a zillion dollars overpriced lol

Yea, 2005 BEW with 57,000km on it. Just broke in.
I bought a HPA adapter to start with but was not happy with the angle of the motor.
It needed to sit more vertical in the XJ to clear the turbo actuator so I designed my own adapter.
Are you moving the trans forward into the next set of holes on the frame?
I'm doing that to get clearance for the vacuum pump at the firewall.
It does mean modifying the drive shafts.
On the ALH you should be able to remove the vacuum pump and just run an electric one?
On the BEW the vacuum pump (tandem pump) is also the fuel pump for the injectors.
I'm also working on a remote block off plate for the oil filter housing with a turbo feed outlet and pressure relief valve built into the plate. The filter is not in the way all the much on the XJ but on some vehicles it is.
Once I get the adapter mounted I can start on motor mounts and will post pic's.
I should be able to make all these parts available to others once I get them finalized and tested.

57,000km?! Geez it's probably only had like three oil changes! Shame about the whole PD thing, but I guess they can be turned up quite a bit!

What is the angle of the HPA adapter? I've seen a couple threads that kept the original 15 angle, can't remember if they were custom or the HPA.

I had hoped to not move the transmission forward for those reasons. Vacuum pump can be changed to some style other than the OE camshaft-driven. But I suppose it will come down to whatever costs less. I suspect plugging the rear will be easier than modifying DS... and finding an even LONGER rear drive shaft for use with a SYE!

Your oil filter/fitting adapter plate sounds intruiging. I guess some earlier 1Z or AHU engines are easier to do that to? I'm definitely interested in doing something about the factory setup on the ALH... most annoying oil changes ever... and ****ing messy - kind of like the EPA "spill-proof" gas can spouts!

I can nearly guarantee you that if you're selling stuff at a decent price I'll buy them (nearly because budget is always a consideration... I might run the 4.0L for longer than i want). I have no problem figuring out wiring and electronics, although I'm not a microcontroller guy, but hard parts I have no concept of.
