200tdi Initial Maintenance?

Just got my 110 with 200tdi and I need recommendations on what checks I should do and what maintenance should be done.

I plan on changing the oil and filter, fuel filter, air filter, thermostat, fan belt, and doing a general once over. I also picked up a gasket set, so I'll replace those as needed.

Should I replace the timing belt as a precaution? The motor is from a '92 Disco with unknown mileage. It has been running a little hot (or at least that what the guage said, granted I was doing 70mph running on 35s).

Grassyass!

Replace the timing belt. no doubt.
A friend of mine just a a 200 where the tbelt let loose. push rods went to hell, but all the valves are OK...so far.

I would also get a real temp gauge, and EGT just to see whats going on. If the IP had been tweaked you'll want to know the EGT's.

FWIW-I dont really go above 65, the motor gets warm and strung out.

Good to know. I've heard the first thing to be done should be the timing belt from several people.

Definitely change the timing belt, flush the engine with flushing oil and check the radiator, it shouldn't run hot.
What sort of fan have you got cooling things down?
Change the fuel filter and run some injector cleaner through the system. Check the water trap too.

Stock plastic fan, no shroud though. The cooling issue could be a myriad of things as you know. So I need to address some of the basic stuff first.

As for the cooling issues you might want to start with installing a shroud

When you pull the radiator, Dolphin Automotive in Springfield will do a good job rodding it.

Easier said than done. The front timing chest is different - the defender 200 isn't the same as the disco the fan and water pump aren't in the same place relative to the block.
Block is the same though.

That's right with the shroud. Two of us in L'burg with Disco 200tdi's installed electric fans and ditched the viscous unit. We also bought Defender 200tdi fan shrouds and found out the hard way.

Steinhagen's 110 with the disco 200tdi had a fan shroud that was turned upside down. Don't know whether it was a disco or defender one but it was real long.

If its long it'll be a defender fan shroud, The engine is way back up against the bulkhead. The front of the engine is very slightly behind the front axle. Mid engined

Def. change the temp gauge to a VDO or something too. IT will give you an accurate reading then.
