Any engine shop should be able to work on it. Don't skim it unless it needs it. They are not meant to be skimmed.

Thanks for the information on the thermostat housing, Adam.

1/40, I will be getting the head rebuilt and injectors checked/rebuilt.

I will call around today and see who does the work near Seattle.

What is the typical cost of head rebuild?

Adam, did you like the service that you received from those guys?

1/40, I will give BR folks a call.

I might just ship it out to get it done if it is too much trouble.

I am looking for shops near me but they are bit lost with availability of the guides and seals for the head as they are looking for them by make/year/model of the engine.

Any tips in communicating with these folks?

bring parts and a manual. They can read the specs and take it from there. I am happy thus far. I purchased the valve seals from rovafarm and they were able to recut valves.

Ok, I ordered the valve guide and the valve seal.

Haynes would be ok in terms of the specs? That is the only manual I am going by. I haven't looked into the manual for the specs yet.

It is doubtful you will need valve guides replaced. If you do need the guides, get OEM...

Seals come with a normal top end gasket kit, which you need.

The factory manual is here: pdf Land Rover Manuals | Landroverweb.com which is what you should be following. You want the "Defender 90 & 110 Workshop Maunual" series. The 200TDI engine info in in the Supplement section.

Use the Haynes manual for fire starter.

LOL. I usually like reading anything Rover, but Haynes I tell you is a bare to follow. I see what you use that manual for.

A couple of questions for yall,

Q1: Where do you guys order parts from? I am sure you order them from multiple places.

I have been ordering from LRdirect when I accumulated enough parts to order I send in large order to save on shipping.

Rovahfarm is one of them as well. Where else?

Q2: Should I get pre-reamed valve guide?

BTW, thank you so much for all the information. I found a shop locally owned by a machinist who has been rebuilding heads for 35 years. He is asking $215 plus parts. I will follow up with the result.

You can get the head parts in less then 3 days usually from Trevor at Rovahfarm if he has them on the shelf. I would have the shop pressure check, check valves/guides for play, measure springs, etc. If within tolerance no additional parts other than seals are needed. If they say you need parts order and have sent to shop in a few days. this way you don't have $$ wasted.

Personally, I only buy engine internals from Turner. LGJ100880 Valve Guide I don't really trust that any other source is suitable...after an expensive lesson last year.

You do want to ream after they are in the block. They can get distorted during the install.

Should I replace this tappet? I feel like I should since it is only 10 bucks and I am looking at it.

It is not $10. Under no circumstances use an aftermarket tappet!!!! 100% failure rate. See the attached of my lesson learned.

Either get an oem from turners or a genuine and it should be a full assembly. Can't tell from your photo what is wrong.

If I replace it, it will be OEM or better (if there is such a thing) whatever it cost at this point on this engine.

It is difficult to tell, but if you look at the 3-4 o'clock position, there is a nick that made the seat out of round and there is very thin layer metal left that is uneven from the other side (7 o'clock).

Just ordered these. I think I am going to have a lot of left overs when I am done with this build.
