What Engine is this?

Post by landijeep » Fri Sep 21, 2018 9:53 pm

Can anybody please help me to identify what engine I have in my Mahindra Brave.
The water pump in my engine seems to be at the bottom of the engine as opposed to the top that is indicated for the xdp 4.90 engines.
Is this a standard engine for the Mahindra Brave?

Hi all, I think I found my answer.
As per an article I found online at: https://www.cj3b.info/World/MahindraLegend.html

the article quotes John Amer - (the chap that was involved in the importing of our Mahindras) and states that:

"All engines in the U.K. Mahindras were Indian-built 2.1cc apart from a few at the end which were 1.9cc French built, as the old 2.1 engine would not pass new regs. These last 19 vehicles were shipped in from Bombay -- all others were built in Greece.

So it would appear that I have a french built Peugeot 1.9 XUD9 engine.
