  3. TD5 TO 3.5

    Thanks Chaps, I definately need an auto as it is my left knee which is the problem, thanks for the heads up on the 3.5 output, the one I have found someone scrapping a 3.9 auto Range Rover (best thing for it) due to accedent damage on rear) But looking at replies I would be better looking for a TD5 Auto ? Thanks R

  7. swapping a TD5 to a 3.5

    Hi all After doing my knee in and my Defender TD5 Manual gearbox starting to play up I started to look into converting it to Automatic, Dave Ashcroft has been very helpful after I found out it was going to be about £6,000 to do. So I have come across someone scrapping a 3.5 lpg auto Discovery. Has anyone out there done anything similar ? Thanks for any help Regards Richard

  11. TD5 Rebuild

    My fault for no replies, I should have said the TD5 is going in my defender, does that make a difference ?
  12. TD5 Rebuild

    Hi Chaps I have the offer of a 1999 Discovery cheap (Yes I know) it has done 190,000 miles My idea is to rebuild the TD5 Engine as mine has done 185,000 and is not very well and swap engines. I am running about 175Hp on the Defender so The question is, the Disco engine runs ok but high mileage, can I get away with just shells and a re bore or is there other stuff that can be done that would benifit the engine whilst I have it out, also can they be bored out larger safely if needed . Used to do all sorts of things with Cortina Mk 3 Pinto engines and now am a bit out of touch, or change the whole engine for a V8 and LPG it ?
