2001 Discovery2 V8

Recommended Posts

A mate of mine who has a 2001 Discovery2 V8 has asked me to confirm whether the correct cylinder head fitment is HRC2479 or HRC2211 ?? I rather think it should be HRC2479.

Can anybody on here help me out please?

Thanks, Adrian.

According to microcat only HRC2479 is a correct part number but it's only for engines up to '99, for 2001 D2 should be LDF001020

Okay, thank you for that. Does that mean that a 2001 Disco2 V8 has an engine other than a RV8 ?

Cheers.

Adrian.

That is a casting number. It has probably had either an engine change,or replacement cylinder heads. It is an old head though.

I'm afraid my knowledge of post 94 RV8's isn't that great. I do know that post 94 heads are "ten bolt" and initially had the casting number of HRC2479. Also, when LR became the lead users of K series and RV8s the reference numbers were all changed. I suppose the real question is, is there any difference between HRC2479 and LDF001020 (other than the ref number) ?

I dont know that, i posted the information from microcat about the head's part number, superceded numbers by LDF001020 are  ERR2552, ERR3650, ERR4322, ERR4323, ERR4324, ERR4553, ERR4735, LDF108080, LDF108090, LDF108110 , as said by smallfry  HRC2479 is a casting number not part number

Yes, you are quite correct, HRC2479 is the casting number and not the part number. RV8 heads always used to be referred generically by the casting number, I was just hoping to verify that the casting numbered HRC2479 was the correct one for this vehicle.

Apologies for the confusion.

Following on from the above, it appears that the later heads have two additional holes for fuel injection system !
