Customer Question

I am looking to embark on repowering my Hagglunds BV206 from the Ford V6 to a diesel.
There are a number of options with people having put Cummins 4BT's in, but the standard is a 617 Merc and a W4A-040 trans.
My question is really a general one at this stage asking if any better suggestions are around. I have not done an engine swap before - Living in Japan makes it pretty much DIY!

My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.My info is somewhat limited on your model here but I had seen no one else has responded and would like to see if I can help here.If at any time you feel that I cannot help with this please let me know.

I havent done an engine swap on this particular model here but I do know that any model vehicle if an engine is installed that isnt compatible with the vehicle the engine harness,engine mounts,possibly transmission and one or more computers will usually need swapped over as well.This can be time consuming and expensive to install and modify all of these to fit your model.If you find options for the setup above this would probably be best to install as it may be easiest.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
