I'm looking to upgrade my 2.4L powered Series III Land Rover to a 3.0L turbo but would need a rear sump oil pan to clear the front diff. Did Mercedes ever do this with a 3.0L? If not, can the existing oil pan be reveresed on the engine? Will I'm at it, can the standard-shift flywheel from a 2.4 be used on the 3.0? I've not seen too many standard 3.0s and if it's an internally balanced engine I would think the flywheel could be used.
Thanks in advance for any help.

Nice looking Mercedes powered Rover.

Oil pan... I dont think you could reverse it unless you can relocate the pump too or if the oil pump is in just the right place. Most pumps are near the bottom of of the sump so reversing the pan would usually mean you have to relocate the pump too.
