andy.cowman Posted January 2, 2006 Share Posted January 2, 2006 Hi. I am actually posting about my friends discovery ( i own a lovely little defender!). Its a G reg 200tdi series 1 disco, 3 door. It has about 120000 miles on the clock and by all appearances hasnt been used offroad before. We worked this out when the transfer box didnt like engageing anything but high!! When we got it into low it then wouldnt come out of it. Anyway we fixed that, also in the three weeks of ownership its been serviced and was booked in for a cambelt change next week. However my deeply unlucky mate (he bought a 3.9 V8 range rover and a month later the block went porous) phoned yesterday after some offroading to say that the cambelt snapped a mile from home. I am not sure of the internal damage yet but want to ask for advice on what to do, the prime concern unfortuntly is cost. is it best/cheapest to rebuild it and where can do it at a good price in the South West? Should we look for a recon engine with an exchange plan? Again where is best? Are there anyother suggestions? Thanks Andy Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
