to the "How to take out a Perkins 4.236 from a Mk1 S46 Dodge50
and then get it back in again" workshop. Please read notes
at bottom of this page(updated 18/09/15*)
it's not Haynes but Still we start with a whole (well not quite
whole) vehicle and finish with a whole (much less holes now, Toby
has welded up the wheel arches and floorpan!) vehicle.
have tried to cover all aspects of taking one of these heavy engines
out, you do need to use your loaf (organic is best) when handling
heavy things like this.
page has one main picture and a description of what we
did in order of removal and refitting and smaller more detailed
pictures, some with numbers and sub notes to help you.
pictures from the Refit where the engine is much cleaner
and we had a slightly different engine hoist, have been used in
the Removal section as we didn't take as many photos at that time.
So if your dodge50 looks much dirtier, so was this one!
Suggested tools are to be found at the right hand side of the page,
a description of what we did and how did it for each section in
the middle and the order of what we did on the left side.
engines are heavy, it is best to have two people, three is better,
can be done alone but thats just mad.
vehicle we have used for this project (Vince)
Belongs to Toby, who was the first person to come accross
the dodge50.co.uk website back in 2002.
project was undertaken by Toby and Greg With the help of Ian and
is a Long Wheel Base S46 Mk 1 Panel van fitted with a Perkins 4.236
3.8 litre non turbo engine.
have tried to be as comprehensive as possible and cover all
aspects of the project. We do not however take any responsibility
for any mistakes / accidents / injuries or costs incured by following
the procedures we have set down in writing and photo format.
from the Refit are also used in the Removal section as we have more
of these, we have done this to give you a more detailed guide, rather
than having the bell housing together and then totally apart we
have used pictures to show the whole process for example.
* I will be updating this workshop over the next couple of weeks with some tips and ideas that I have gained over the last decade which should help even more.
Keep it Dodgy
