I agree on a B and a 2H, they both are not a great match for a Rover but a late 3B is a different ballgame. I know the owner and have driven this truck and kinda consulted on its construction. This one has a turbo on it - As powerful as a 300TDI, a bit noisier but not bad, it has an inline pump, cast iron head, and gear driven timing parts. It's no 300TDI, but then again, you pay a premium for noise and weight.
When someone makes it to 600K miles on a 300TDI I will change my tune. This is a great truck for the money, and it's all galvy (except for the frame). I knew Ron would like it
