2.5TD (19j) onto Series III transmission

Will the 19j bolt up to a series transmission? IIRC the 200tdi is a bolt up...and I -think- the bolt pattern is the same. I do not have a 200tdi to compare and have not removed the 2.25 petrol either...

I have a 19j from my ROW D90 and was wondering about using it on a SIII rebuild. I may go with a RRC frame and just mount it with the LT77, but wanted some feedback.

Thanks,
Sean

Yes... sort of.

You may need to drill and tap a few of the corresponding belhousing holes on the engine side and may need to open up the series belhousing holes for the 10mm bolts of the engine.

If installing in a IIA or III am not 100% sure the turbo clears a LHD steering and you'll need to remake the right motor mount. The 19J also benefits quite a bit from an intercooler - not so much from the performance perspective, but to help keep it cooler.

I'm not 100% but I looked in to this a while back and I'm pretty sure it bolts up. OI believe you can use a series clutch and spigot bush as well.

At the most it is what Rob said, but I believe all the defender diesels of that era (19j and 200tdi) bolt up to series.

I have a 2.5NA in my Series 3 and it bolted straight up to the Series gearbox with no trouble or mods at all. The Series clutch bits bolted onto the Diesel's flywheel and the right hand engine mount needed to be moved rearwards on the frame. All things considered, a fairly simple engine swap. Turbo may add a bit more head scratching but shouldn't be too big a deal.

Thanks everyone...sounds like a fairly easy swap: possible drilling, moving a mount & figuring out turbo placement.

Cheers,
Sean

turbo

It will fit the gearbox just fine. I just put one in a 1960 109. Use the 9.5 clutch. As others said the real bugger is the turbo. Even though it sits higher than the Disco turbo I still had to switch to power steering. The exhaust down tube and the steering rocker shaft both want to be in the same place. In LHD vehicles. If you have RHD different story. Here's the page in my blog.
