I think he would be much better off mending his engine rather than 
transplanting another 4 cylinder unless he knows the replacement engine 
is very good. I would certainly not recommend going down the 2 1/4 
Litre route. Parts to repair are reasonably readily available.

I have been in contact with a garage in Connecticut that is looking for 
a good P4 '60' engine for a restoration on a 1958 P4 they are doing for 
a customer. The engine in the car is firmly seized after a long soak 
with 'Mystery Oil in the cylinders. I have advised them that they might 
find an engine through Land Rover Series I sources, and they are 
looking into importing an engine from the UK. Sounds like the engine 
was low on power for a while, then sat for some years and is now 
Does anyone know of a 60 engine available in North America? How about a 
good running 60 engine available in the UK or elsewhere? 
Depending on how badly stuck the engine is, they might be better off 
putting resources into rebuilding the existing engine rather than 
putting in a running engine with unknown history. I don't think there 
are many 60's or Series I's in the US. Maybe put an '80' / LR Series II 
engine in it?
