DaveSIIA Posted May 4, 2006 Share Posted May 4, 2006 What's involved in converting a 1990 3.9 RRC auto to a 200Tdi? I have the RRC (complete, but minus engine) and a 200Tdi/LT77/Rad/Intercooler/Exhaust (all ex-Disco, but still in the vehicle). Rad, exhaust & engine mounts are not a problem. The difficulty comes with mating the engine and gearbox (having not worked on a Tdi auto). 1/. Do all ZF auto's use the same bellhousing or are V8 & Tdi versions different? 2/. The Tdi flywheel will require replacing by a Tdi flex plate and torque convertor. 3/. Does the Tdi engine backplate (flywheel housing) have to be changed for an auto version? I know about the cam in the ZF box which governs shift points, but what else could I have overlooked? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
