Value of a 300Tdi motor

Considering purchasing a 300Tdi motor and all the ancillaries. Basically everything under the hood. And what would the value of a 3.9 motor be? What would need to be removed to make it usable for someone else?

Not looking for transmission or transfer case, planning to use existing. Unless there is a reason you can't mate a 300Tdi to a 3.9 transmission/transfer case.

Factory fresh, fully rebuilt, good runner, or needs work?

Different condition/mileage different price. Assuming DEFENDER 300Tdi not Disco conversion.

Fair range is $15K to $3K - most good runners should be right around $7k.

TC and Trans included - ancillaries are what keep the prices up a bit as well.

Shipping in the USA can then add $400-$900 depending on where and how.

I have one in the shop - ~140K miles, R380 & LT177, all the ancillaries, good runner but needs a little attention (belts, flush, etc.)

I am thinking about taking my TD5 out of my 130. I would take the entire system ECU, wiring harness, r380 transmission out. I am toying with the idea of putting a 4.6 in my truck with a auto transmission. I really don't have any idea what the TD5 is worth. It runs great and has about 118k original miles. I jut put a booster on it and it go's 80mph without missing a beat. I just like the relative ease of parts on a 4.6.

TD5's aren't worth shit unfortunately. I'll send a truck round to take it away as a favor ...

why don't you do a TD5 auto ... and get an account with paddocks ... spares in a a couple of days ... not much different from US retailers.

The diesel R380 is different than the V8 one so you would need a new gearbox and transfer box if you wish to keep the proper ratio.

Wanna trade? A 4.6 with transmission and T/C along with a 4.2 with transmission and T/C for the TD5 setup.

Thanks bur I will probably sell when I get closer to making the change. If and when I do it I will probably sell the entire TD5 set up for around $6,500 to $7,500. After talking with a few people I think that is fair. It will be a month or two before I am ready to make the decision.

So after almost 10 years in the United Arab Emirates i am considering coming home to the USA. I have a complete 300TDi that I have done a major overhaul on for a 110 project that will not go forward if i come home. I will bring my NAS 97 home with me but due to the OBDII issues I will leave the V8 in it.

I am going to crate the TDi and bring it home in my 40ft container and try to sell it when I get stateside....the question is what is it worth?

the only parts that i reused from the original engine are as follow:

Rear timing cover (STC4095 with new LR FRONT cover fitted)
Water pump bracket
oil dip stick / pick up
valve cover
intake
L/R exhaust stub manifolds (Machined flat and soda blasted)
block (+20)
connecting rods / caps
main caps

Everything else is new down to the nuts and bolts. All internal parts came from Turner engineering including new head (ported and polished), crank (Std), cam, pistons, lifters, pushrods, rockers, rocker shaft.

All external parts are Land Rover or OEM with a few small parts being Bearmach. Injectors are new Bosh and the FIP is Bearmach overhauled (with bosh tag). 100amp LR alternator, NEW Garrett turbo, overhauled power steering pump, new LR water pump, and new LR sound deadening cover. all other pipes and hoses are new LR. (including the air filter, bracket, and intake hose)

Also fitted is an oil filter sandwich adapter with oil pressure and oil temp sensor as well as fittings for Amsoil bypass filter. (feed and return as pictured) Additionally the block mounts, engine rubber mounts, and fuel filter lines are included.

I would be interested to know what you all think it is worth
