1984 110 CSW Engine replacement advice please!
I'm a relatively new 110 owner and as luck would have it, my engine is in need of a rebuild. Since I have the 2.5L diesel (non-turbo), I would like to take advantage of the opportunity to upgrade to a TDI engine. I'm considering the 200 and 300 TDI. My LT77 trani etc are in good working order, ~80K miles. I don't really have the funds to go buying a new trani, transfer case, etc. Aside from the exhaust work, can I replace only the engine with the 300TDI? From reading other posts, looks like the mounts need to be adjusted, but will it work with the LT77? I've seen it done before, but doesn't sound like it's recommended. From other sources, it sounds like the 200TDI is a fairly straightforward bolt on and pairs better with the LT77. I'm confused and can't figure out what to do. Any recommendations are gladly welcome. Thanks
