200tdi...balance shaft?

The research that I've done...limited admittedly...seems to imply that the 200tdi does not have a balance shaft. Is this true?

Do the 300tdi or TD5s have a balance shaft?

200 and 300 do not. Td5, I doubt it but don't know.

thanks, dave! I had my suspicions because of the 'shaky' nature of the engine but it's good to have verified it.

do you know if the 300tdi has an improved harmonic balancer? I'm wondering because the 300tdi seems to be "smoother" than the 200tdi...obviously it's not down to a balance shaft.

Don't know about that as both have big balancers compared to a 4 cyl. Petrol engine. But there are other things that affect the smoothness of an engine. Particularly it's state of tune, which with most things LR is totally unique for every vehicle. I'm sure there are 200tdis out there that are alot smoother than my 300. Do you find yours to run rough or shake alot? I guess smoothness is relative. We are talking about 4cyl inline pushrod diesels with mechanical injection after all...

I'm also not sure about the TD5, but the added cylinder should smooth it out quite a lot.
