2.25L and 200Tdi engine mounts question

I am acquiring a 1983 110 that currently has a 2.25L petrol engine and LT77 trans in it...does anyone know
if a 200Tdi engine would be a drop in fit on the existing chassis engine mounts or do they need to be moved/welded into new positions?
thanks
George

Dave,
thanks for that but it says:
The 200 Tdi mounts are the same as the original 2.5 variant of ones. The actual engine mounts are the same as the 2.5 TD. Mounting rubbers for engine 200 Tdi are ANR1808...
but the question then becomes, are the 2.5L and the 2.25L mounts the same?

The 200Tdi and 2.5 engine mounts are the same. The 2.25 mount on the right hand side is different, the left hand mount is the same. I am going to replace the 2.25 petrol engine in my Series 3 with a 2.5 NA diesel, and this is the info I have been given from several different sources.

I know the above is correct, but I am not sure if the later 2.25 mounts as on a defender were the same as the early 2.25 mounts which is why I did not say anything in the first place.

2.25 mounts on the defender chassis are not the same as 2.25 mounts on the series frame. the 200tdi should drop right onto the 2.25 chassis, as some members here have done.

just to be clear for future thread searchers...the 200Tdi will drop onto and bolt right up to the early 110 frame that had 2.25L petrol motor mounts...no cutting or welding required

....and to add to the clarification....the DEFENDER 200 mounts are the same as the early 110. Those trying to bolt a Disco version will disapointed as these engine mounts are very much different .
....or at least the ones I've seen have been.
