I was going to order Coopers or Mahle. Would those be ok?

I have a .2 Micron Stanadyne as well.

Read here: http://minimopar.knizefamily.net/oilfilters/index.html I see there has been more recent work. Have a look the Toyota filer page as it is not "that" old...

below is pasted the file I have on my phone for 300TDI part numbers, etc. There's an equivalent Bosch filter available, I just don't have the part number and not sure its worth double the price.

Fuel filter
AEU2147L - paddock/britpart,
Proline - plf862

I like the short filters. BTW, the PH8A, Motorcraft FL1A, etc etc is a Ford filter. They are longer than the ERR3340 by about an inch or so. Just sayin. Never had one get smacked but check your clearances.

WIX 51515 and Hastings/Baldwin B2 are both good filters (though the longer style) and I pay <$5 for WIX here.
For fuel I tried a Racor when I did my first diesel conversion in '82 and that's all I've used since.
Incredibly, in the 80's JC Whitney sold Racor FS200 filters with the high water level alarm for $65. Quite a deal.

John,

I'm afraid I'm too technically challenged to make much sense of this. There were some that seemed a little less good than others but no clear winners. Can (all of) you give me a list of your top 3 filters?

Do you have MANN filters there? Around here are one of the best available. Or you could use Donaldson also.

Do you have a part# for the Mann filter? Want to make sure I order the right one for a 300tdi.

What are people's opinion on K&N? I think that's the oil filter I have on there now.

MANN is what most of us use down here on our bunch of 300tdi“s around here. They are very good quality filters.

Cheers,

Clearly stated here: http://minimopar.knizefamily.net/oil.../opinions.html Anything under "recommended filter" is perfectly fine.

Thanks. I read it. Was hoping for a clear winner but will pick any of these.

It does not really matter as long as it is decently made. You just don't want one that falls apart. Oil filters don't really do a lot. If there are particles big enough in the sump for a full flow oil filter to catch, you have bigger worries.

Unfortunately we no longer live in a time when a company actually produces the product(s) it's name is on. What's worse is that there may be any number of sources for their labelled products. What's even worse is that the quality control on these out-sourced products can vary greatly. Bottom line, don't assume any of them are guaranteed to be top shelf.
One more reason to just change your oil and filter often.

If you're changing your oil and filter every 3k-4k miles, pretty much any filter is going to be OK. It's a Rover, not an F1 car...

I installed a MANN filter. I also went with Blackstone Laboratories for the oil analysis. Highly recommended. Link: http://www.blackstone-labs.com

Very detailed report but here are their comments:

No problems showed up in the initial sample from your Land Rover. All wear in the average range
for this type of engine, which is a very good indication of normally wearing parts. You might normally change
it at 3,000 miles, but the engine didn't mind this 5,500-mile run at all. You could stick with this or even go
longer next time, if you wanted. Universal averages show normal wear after about 3,200 miles on the oil, so
your engine is wearing better than most. Insolubles were low, showing good oil filtration. No fuel or
anti-freeze was found. All in all, a very nice report.

Wix and Baldwin/Hastings still make their own filters.
I'm comfortable using filters that are used by people/companies who's livelihood depends on their vehicles. Truckers, heavy equipment operators, etc.
