Diary of 300 TDI install into the Range Rover - Updated 05.06.2005
This project came about as the 3.5 V8 motor was down on compression and needed some work.
I was going to replace it with a 3.9 V8 motor from a late model Disco, when an opportunity arose
from the VIC 4WD show to buy a panel damaged 1997 Disco TDI Auto.
The Plan was to transfer the body from the RR to the Disco Chassis and running gear,
however this was not acceptable to the RTA or my engineer - so plan 2 was to use the chassis
of the RR and all the mechanicals off the Disco.
The aim was to have a reliable vehicle for weekends, possible events but not to be too worried
over the bashability of an expensive vehicle.
