VN 304 EFI Into VL

Hi dudes,

Some of you may of read - I blew my 5ltr up 2mths back, anyway I have pretty much sourced a EFI 304 from a VN, including box, wiring harness, dash cluster, EFI fuel pump etc etc.. it's all there, for a price im happy to pay.

Just wondering if old mates at QLD transport are going to kick up much of a stink if I put this in my VL, it originally had a 5ltr in it, so I cant see why.. just wondering is all !

Also, has anyone done this conversion ? Im pretty confident it will be straight foward.

Don't quote me on this but I'm pretty sure you have to use everything that was supplied on the VN. That includes all the fuel inlets too! It would be just as easy to put the injection crap on your 304.

To put a later model engine into a vehicle you need to retain all the manufacturer emmissions gear.

All sensors/catalytic converters and emmissions must be kept.

or you could just get a 304 from a VL and convert it, can be done relativley cheaply.

Well I wont be putting this motor in my VL now, Finally got the heads off it this weekend, and as I was pulling them off one of the valves dropped out ! Seems that horrid noise that it was making last was the Valve slapping agaisnt the top of the piston. Im extremley happy that this is all it was, going to save my bank account some hassles.

Also found out why it let go, whoever last rebuilt the motor when putting it together, didnt put 2 Collets on this Valve, We only found one in the motor, and the Valve has a large amount of wear on it from having all the stress put up agaisnt the only one present.
