200 tdi was offered from 89 to 93. 300 from 93 to 2006.

Epa 21 yrs, Dot 25yrs. Whether you ship ro/ro or container or drive it across the border has no bearing on import laws- same laws apply to all avenues of entry.

Thanks for the corrections Doug!

FoxCustom:

If you want a gas engine, get a 3.9 or 4.0. If you want a diesel, go 200Tdi or newer. The older (RoW) gas & diesel engines were pretty weak in both power & reliability.

Good luck!

Paul.

Just wondering about parts sources/catalogs/mailorder places... Now, I've searched around on BritPart and Rovers North and they look like they carry ALOT. But, are they pretty reliable on shipping and what not? Are there any others I should know about? (more for service/resto parts, not so much aftermarket/upgrade items)

Also, is there anything available at NAPA for these trucks? You know, in case of emergency like a belt or filter or fan clutch or items like that... heck, even light bulbs? Are they like typical domestic 1157,2057, and flashbulbs???

Also, driveshaft U-Joints? Is there a domestic source for these or mailorder only?

When you're looking for a part do a search on this site for detail info. You'll find everything from part numbers to alternate parts and more than likley the detailed installation instructions/ warnings...accompanied by photos most of the time. You just search, let your fingers do the walking first.

Most of the companies that youve heard about on this site are very good. If they do screw up (cause we're all human) they make amends. Good Luck!

Bil's the man! He hooked me up with so much information as to where to get parts. I can't get nothing at Auto zone for my truck in Brooklyn. Trust me, you can't.

Good to know. I'll ask the local NAPA warehouse anyways. Thanks guys! By the way, I was meaning parts for a British Spec 200Tdi...as that's the truck on my wish list.

I have a 200TDi from the UK. I have found it to be easy and cost-effective to get together a decent order and just ship from a company in the UK like lrseries.com or island4x4.co.uk. They seem to be keen on charging a flat rate of 40GBP for shipments, which have varied for me from a small 6 pound shoebox, to a large 18 pound 12x18x10 inch box. My shipments have all shown up within 10 days. Only one issue is they forgot to send a part once, but it was sent priority after I let them know and showed up in three days.

I have also found ordering from some independent land rover shops to be very competitive as well. Always good to support them as well.

I haven't done it, but apparently you can upgrade the brakes on your 200tdi to the bigger vented rotors and subsequent calipers from NA spec 90 which I have found available at napa for a decent price.

Also, nas and early row defender u joints are the same?

I think some searching around the site will give you the answers to these possibilities.

Don't take me as the gospel though, there are far more knowledgeable people than me on the site.

I am also in Canada, but I doubt that should make much difference.

The 200tdi comes with v-belts and last I checked you could just measure the length the napa or autozone would find one for you. The 300tdi has a more specific belt that you would need to get from a rover place.

You can get a serpentine belt for the 300Tdi from a NAPA in a pinch....
