Re: Do i keep the disco?

3.6 isuzu he'll be using is a 4bE1, 4bb1s are ancient and pretty uncommon in nz, even when they were new. most 4cyl stuff was 4ja1, 4jb1, 4bc2 or 4bd1 back then. interesting that the 4bd1 kills stuff. you could get them with a factory isuzu box (probably a jatco) back when they were available new i...

Funny you should mention that, I'm doing that with a 109", TD42 and auto, disco suspension, off road camper I'd guess 500 hrs plus over $19000 in parts and material (no labor!) so far and I don't even have a rolling chassis, a good portion of this cost is due to the mistake of staying with rov...

Cool a 2 door. Looks like a keeper to me.

Re: learn me Disco style's

power stroke, is a little more than just a name, it indicates the style of injection system.

oil over, CAT style, there was an isuzu 3lt 99ish with the same system

ford got LR in 2000. the 300 tdi was done and dusted by then

the 2.8 is not a power stroke, its good old rotary mech

Think you need to check your reference material as you seemed to be miss-informed. Yes, as I stated the 300tdi (code named Gemini 3) was a development of the 200tdi engine (code named Gemini) but it is a Land Rover in house engine and not Brazilian as you think. Land Rover sold the licence and right...

4D56? By all accounts they're a torque monster, with reliability to boot. I wouldn't go with an Isuzu four pot, because they're just a carbon copy of the Cummins 4BT.
