shortage of 200 TDI heads

Was talking with an engine builder in the UK and he reckoned that good 200 TDI heads were in short supply. Ii may be difficult to get an exchange head only effect repair on your own head if possible. As it was a relatively short run engine no one is likely to re-cast a new batch. Just thought I would throw it out there in case anyone is looking for an engine . I have no heads or engines for sale just thought the info may be of use.

Good info Ken,

Yeah the 200TDI Defender engine is my whish list.
Although my brother in law is a Diesel nut who has been trying to get me started on a Duramax diesel setup project for some time now.

6.2 6.5 GMC Diesels in Rovers

About 10 years ago in the UK there was a company called Samurai who fitted and sold kits to fit 6.2 or 6.5 GMC diesels in Rovers. As far as I know they ran fine the big problem was the Rover gearboxes could not handle the power. If I remember correctly Frogs Island may have put one in a Series 3 it was a true beast.

300TDI heads can be used, if needed on 200 TDI.

300tdi heads on 200tdi engine? I posted this question, two or three weeks ago and after a lot of posting to UK sites, no one would step up and tell me they had done it (or even they knew someone who had done it) or that they knew it worked fine. But since there are no 200 tdi heads available - if you need one you could try a 300tdi head and report back to us. For me, I was able to sort out the issue with my 200tdi head and ended up not needing to go the 300tdi head route
