Cummins engine, but I have no idea how you would adapt it. The drive train would be ideal to handle the weight, plenty of torque

That certainly would push the old Fox along Laughing Would have to look at how to couple it up to the flywheel though.

LOL Don't worry been told not too!

For one thing, I do not know of anyone converting a Fox to any other engine, secondly, it will lower the value by a heck of a lot. Providing the Jag is treated respectfully and no abused, it will do what you want of it, and is a pleasure to drive. If you find a diesel, it would have to have fluid flywheel adapted to it, an expensive engineering job. Then the diesel would be unlikely to match the normal running RPM of a Jag, this would also cause problems for the gearbox, because a slower engine would mean the gearbox ratios would not match the diesel engine.

You would be very dissapointed in performance to say the least.
