Hi Phil, thanks for the insight. I will bear it in mind when I start looking......I have a classic car to find a new owner for before I seriously start the search. ;D

The 310 is an om 602 five cylinder motor thatís a far swap if heís going that far heíd be as well fittting one with a turbo to get him up hills. Or better still fit the om 605 ive considered this indeed I have an engine waiting they get mad power from these but Iím going to stick around 200 hp and that will give good reliability and fuel consumption,
Message me and Iíll get some details for you

Hi Jon,
I have used a 404 for that purpose for many years. Most of the 404s that come on the market are petrol although there are a few diesel around. The ex military ones like mine had a 6 cyl sometimes twin carb engine which was around 100bhp but very thirsty! A lot of diesel convesions were done using low revving diesels like the old Perkins, but because the 404 is so low geared this makes them woefully slow on the road. In my opinion you need an engine which will hit 3500 - 4000 rev to make them usable. I have an Iveco 2.5 turbo diesel fitted and this is fine. you will also have to uprate the brakes for todays traffic! Mine has a pto non live drive although they are harder to find for the 404 now? I use mine with a mower, a crane with timber pincers and a tipping body - hard to beat in the woods!
Welcome and good luck!

I have just registered with the club. I have admired Unimogs for as long as I can remember and would love to own one, I currently own a vintage tractor which works for its living on some land we have planted as an orchard and occasionally gets shown at local shows. The Unimog will be used in the same way, to be used around the orchard, moving trailers and getting firewood in and a bit of gentle off-roading! Now I have a use for one I think it's now or never to own one.
I've seen a few displays of Unimogs at various tractor shows, mainly The Tractor World Show at Malvern (not sure if anyone on here shows there?) and always try and speak to owners.
I am thinking along the lines of a 404 (smaller, more basic and possibly more manoverable than a newer mog?) something with a pto would come in handy.
Would be interested to hear owners views and if you think I am looking for the right truck for my uses?

Thanks in advance for any replies.

What a great idea!! time for something similar on my mog as that makes it so much of an easier job.
A good friend of mine is embarking upon swapping engines in his camper from a 208D to 310D.  ???

Does anyone know where he can get workshop manuals for both from? He has been helping me with the U1000 and was overjoyed with the manuals. He has been to a local Mercedes commercial parts outlet but they were less than helpful.

Genius!  I have the forestry plate on my 406 and it makes it a pain to change the oil.

Great job!
