Can someone clarify what the differances between a Disco and Defender 300tdi engine are. have searched the threads without much success,plenty on 200tdi's. Wife boiled our 300tdi disco at weekend proper meltdown two pistons gone and knackered head. mates got a 300tdi out of a late 110, but he was told would not go into a disco by a chap who came to look at it. As i have a complete but knackered disco engine,just want to clarify whats involved before jumping in with both feet. If anyone can set the story right this will be the place.

early disco and defender 300's are the same. later disco's have drive-by-wire throttles, and different injector pumps, but you can just swap the pump over from your defender engine (or a 200 Tdi apparently)

other than that, they're the same.

yes, 200Tdis were different between disco and defender.... turbo/manifolds/front cover

I think it was just the autos which had drive by wire

you might be right there. the later ones have the EGR system with a different injection pump, but it think it was the disco auto's that had the "powerful" drive by wire version.
