On the alternator, the normal stock wiring has two wires that run to the starter, I think both 12 gauge. You can certainly run one heavier single wire. I use 4 gauge myself.

You have early cooler pipes and late radiator fittings. ESR 1912 and 1913 are the numbers for the late cooler pipes. Those will work fine with your new radiator but won't work with the oil filter adapter at the other end.

You have two choices:

1) Buy late oil filter adapter and ESR 1912 and ESR 1913 cooler pipes
OR
2) Use adapters from an early radiator that fit the early type cooler pipes

If you choose the second approach be careful removing the existing adapters from the plastic radiator tank. You'll see that there is cement/sealant on the threads. You will have to gently apply heat from a propane torch to get them to release. Too much heat and you'll melt the tank.

I'll skip melting the Radiator removing the adapters. I don't have the patience for that either.

Any idea where best to find this late model oil filter adapter? am I going to pay an arm and a leg?

Brit Car had the best price on the late oil filter adapter when I needed one. It was about 60 quid plus shipping.

Removing the adapters from the radiator is actually pretty easy and takes only about 10 minutes for both of them. But if you gotta replace that kinked pipe anyway, might as well upgrade to the new O-ring pipes.

The oil filter adapter is ERR3459

Looks like they're going for about 80 quid now.

Did you use two of the same hose? The one with a 90degree bend?

If you're putting a 200tdi in a 110, use the 200tdi Defender pipes. The 300tdi pipes aren't going to work right in your application, they'll be too short.

Looks like I'm SOL with the late model filter housing. Back ordered across Europe.

Looks like I "Finished" the 200TDi swap. Did a beer run and forgot to tighten the battery terminals. ground popped off and I coasted down a side road. Other than that, all the grit and grim is burning off and making some good smells.
I ordered ESR281 and the early style radiator adapters. Worked like a charm. Now to find ESR280 to get rid of this questionable pipe that came with the engine.

Intake/IC pipes are a mess, but functioning, as I was sent Disco parts.

A huge thanks to everyone who has helped me along the way! I owe a few rounds of beers.
