To all H100 specialists,
Is it possible to replace a dead diesel 2.4 D by a petrol one ? As far as I know, 1994-1997 H100 Vans have only been sold in France with a Diesel motor, and during 1997-2003 period, a few petrol vans and buses have appeared on our roads, whether in England, Germany and Switzerland, they were much more popular. Therefore, it seems realistic to find some used H100 petrol motor, and my questions are : 1) what about fitting it on the gearbox (similar bolts disposition ?), 2) Is motor fixation (silent blocks) the same or not that much different to be fixed easily, 3) What about gears and rear axle pignons (number of teeth) ? the powers of the two motors are different, and so would be the gears and rear axle ratios.
If Someone has ideas on the question, or even (by chance) carried out such modification, i should strongly appreciate his help.

You do know the diesel engine used in the H100 van is actually a Mitsubishi unit (Mitsubishi 4D56)? It was used in the Mitsubishi L300 van, the L200 pickup, and Mitsubishi Challenger/Shogun Sport. And don't forget the Hyundai Galloper. It was fitted to a lot more Mitsubishi models than Hyundai so it might be easier to find one if you expand your search to include the Mitsubishi models.

Is it possible to replace a dead diesel 2.4 D by a petrol one ?
BTW, 2.4 is a petrol engine. The diesel is 2.5.

Many thanks to AUTOSPARKS for his anwer. A question is to find a petrol engine, which does not seem too hard (but Mitsubishi has not been extensively sold in Europe), and another one is to fit it in place of a 2.5 D engine. Before looking for a motor, I wanted to know if the job was realistic, without changing the gearbox and the rear axel, on a 1994 H100 model. What do you think about that job ?

Sorry, I'm an auto electrician by trade so I'm not qualified to advise you about an engine swap. I do know it would be a significantly less complicated to just swap like for like though. Anyway, lets hope one of the mechanics stop by with an answer for you.

Good luck with your project.
