What we need is a US/Canada supplier to buy and distribute these.

Landy Ltd has been around for a very long time. Communication ? He's in Wales. Welsh are unique folks. That said he's 43 miles from where I ship from and I have a great pallet tranport service.

with regard to the mud slinging going on i thought i would set out some facts......

I supplied chris with a land rover defender, originally camel trophy. sent to vancouver BC.
he complained that the engine smoked and leaked oil so i agreed to send him another engine and even come and fit it.
i picked the land rover up, and could not make it smoke no matter what i tried to do. i removed the engine, traced the oil leak to the oil drain plug. roverlanders own cory paulger can attest to this.
chris told me he didnt think the engine was rebuilt so the head was removed to find nice fresh cylinder bores. this engine is now sitting with stephen ford as a spare for his tdi 110 i built him or conversion for a discovery should he need it.

the latest engine was one bought from a reputable builder..... and after fitting it i heard nothing from chris till i got an email. i wont copy the whole email here but here are the facts from it in his own words......( i can post the whole email if requested.)

pulled over when the engine was pushing higher temp than normal and rattling a little under load, found expansion tank bubbling and oil low
let it cool and added oil
went to restart and it would not turn fast enough to fire engine
had a fellow help me push start it and all seemed fine so drove on
a few KM later engine noise, blue/gray smoke and engine shaking so pulled over to the shoulder.....

subsequent emails determined that the amount of oil added (7/8 quart, 0.82 liters) was what should have taken the oil level past full on the dipstick however it was still not there, meaning the oil level was below the minimum mark when oil was added. particularly at highway speeds this can be detrimental to an engine as you can imagine.
so, why is chris saying i did not warranty this engine ? well not just to do with the oil, though that gives me an indication of what checks were carried out before doing this trip in the vehicle. it is more that after the engine overheated and would not restart chris took it on himself to force it to do so.
That said, i did offer to pay to ship the engine back and look into what the problems were and fix them with him being responsible for costs if it was apparent he was at fault, however he demanded i pay for it to be fixed by his own choice of shop which i was not prepared to do.
he then threatened court action against me and my subcontractors (i was happy for him to take me to court and happy to give him any details he needed to do so)
this is all documented in emails between us along with his next email that demanded that i pay $6000 for work he had done on it or he would post his version of things all over the internet. quite frankly i would rather he take me court......

over the years and hundreds of customers i have only had a few who were not happy with my service even though there were some problems that needed to be sorted along the way..... this has to be expected in any business that you cannot please everyone, but i do try.... even replacing parts on occasion when warranties have run out.

He is in Wrexham North Wales, my home town. I guess you could say I am unique?

Has anybody imported a Turner motor recently? Can it still be done? Are the ancillaries hard to find in the US?

I have just bought a "turnkey" 300tdi engine for my 90 rebuild from Hobsons in the UK. I had a choice of remanufactured using genuine or OEM parts or all new and genuine, I went for all new and genuine. The difference in price was about 1400. The engine is complete down to clutch and engine mounts, be advised though this is by no means a cheap option. I could have bought a tidy used truck here in the UK for the money, but I figure, whats the point of rebuilding everything onto a galv chassis, then fitting a tired 150k miles engine?.......

Heres a link to Hobsons, my dealings with this company were superb, with good, helpful, prompt communication throughout, I would not hesitate to use this company again.

Used engines are treated as parts and can enter. I have done that recently. Rebuilt are treated as new and require creativity.

I have had a few pms asking how much my new 300tdi engine cost (see previous post).

7300 plus 20% UK Vat (sales tax) plus delivery, i live in the UK and guess the UK sales tax would not apply to an export.......as I said in the previous post, not a cheap option, but I intend to hand the truck to the kids when i expire...driven sympathetically and maintained regularly the engine should be good for 250,000 miles......

Regards

Paul

I'm ready to roll, finally. Need to locate a new crate three hundy in the UK with ancillaries if I can find one. Need to get more details on the "creative" measures.

I decided against TGV, as I want parts commonality with the guys I wheel with...who have three hundys. I don't want a used rebuild candidate motor, either.

I've found a remanufactured long block at Turner Engineering and may go that direction if I can find new ancillaries.

I need to call Rob Dassler about a gearbox and t-case, too.
