My first defender

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

New defender (new to me)

just come back from looking at a nice 90 and have put a deposit down.

I have run a hpi check and it all looks good. I am just trying to work out if the correct engine is on the paper work and also when I am putting the reg into insurance quotes is it showing the correct engine (1989 model with a td5 engine and gear box) any clues on what to do?

Thank you in advance.

Hmmm a Td5 in a 1989 era vehicle is of course do-able, but its not one of the regular engine "upgrades" there's considerably more wiring etc to work out when doing this as the standard 89 wiring is very basic - while not improbable I'd be looking at the vehicles identity very carefully to see if it has any other 89 features.
