200tdi swap

1. if I were to swap a 200tdi/LT77 into my NAS chassis would I have to change/weld anything other than the engine mounts? ie cross member or tansmission/transfer case location? woule the t-case from a range rover work or would the ratio from a defender be better?

2. can I swap out the fuel lines and fuel pump somehow to use the NAS tank or is it better to swap to a different tank...if so which one?

Thanks in advance

Keith

Weld in engine mounts. the LT77 has bolt on chassis mounts. and a tubular crossmember.

As long as you get rid of the in tank pump and just fit a pick-up pipe. then the tank will work. (needs a fuel return as well)

I have an R380 at present, still wondering about that t case ratio.

Is there any info out there explaining that fuel tank conversion? or do I simply run the pick up and return lines?

If you have a V8 and R380 you most likely have a 1.2 Tcase. That would work with a 200. My brother has a 1.2 in his 200 tdi 110 pickup and is running 33's with no issues. The r380 uses a different set of mounts and a different cross member than the lt77 as Jamie said above. You would need those. The engine mounts can be ordered from Rovers North for cheap and are easily welded in. You don't say if its a disco or defender 200 engine. You will have problems with your left hand drive steering if its a disco engine.

I've got a 1.2 in my 110 also (although i'm running a slightly tweeked Td5) but it certainly makes for a better more relaxed drive.

Try doing that a 5200 feet above sea level... 5th gear is pointless and first gear isn't nearly low enough..
If only I could put the Puma Tranny behind my 300's or even my TD5.

You can use the stock tank, replace the fuel pump with a pickup tube/sock from NAPA. Rumor has it that if you get a 200 Disco version you can stick a 300 exhaust manifold and turbo on it and do LHD, plus I've heard you get a bit more boost.

I'm running a 1.2 t. case and a 200TDI. I live at 4000 feet and drive to 7000 feet. 1st and 5th are fine for me.

Sure in a 90! I'm putting a 1.2 in my 90 as well. Perhaps I just like my clutch too much.

Yup, the 3hundy manifolds and turbo on a disco engine are the setup. I'm quite pleased.

Am I lost? I thought this post was talking about a 90. Sure, 1.4 for a 110 unless you have some decent tuning. Mostly for 1st though. 5th should not matter as that is all about wind resistance.

Point taken John! A 90 for sure...
On my 110 first is too high even with a nice tune, bigger IC and the TGV turbo set up, just too much first gear clutch abuse and wind resistance.. With the RTT and dragging the trailer.. 5th would be push with a 1.2..

Been there done that with the 300 turbo on a disco 200. Works great. I really, really, like the getrag 6 spd in the Puma's. Seems to be the ultimate Defender gearbox to me.

I have a 1.2 in my 130 and thats way to tall for that truck. Need to rebuild the original 1.4 and get it back in. Just blew the clutch apart due to the loads put on it.

could you not lower the ring and pinion to 4:11, save your clutch and keep the power band even in the mountains? I did this when I lived in the mountains of California and it solved my problems...used a centerforce clutch too though
