Didn't need to, it was pretty much a plug and play direct replacement. There was a concern the 300Tdi wouldn't make enough vacuum (our pre-checks showed 14 psi at idle) but it's plenty. After a 150 mile shake down drive today I give them 2 thumbs up.

Sweet! I will need to check it out in detail..

------ Follow up post added January 16th, 2018 08:20 PM ------

Side note... I corrected my persistent o2 fault. (Actually my persistent problem of killing the right o2 sensor with the drive shaft because the o2 bung was canted over 15 degrees from vertical and my suspension is flexly problem)
.. solution was to rebuilt everything, and add a new quiet dynomax SS muffler, custom y pipe with less restrictions (cough, cough..) and a tucked tail pipe..


Itís not stainless but then again if it rusts I can take it back to the shop for their lifetime warranty , they have Been there for 40 years...

My Puma dash finally arrived from the UK, so getting it fettled.

To clarify, I can use the Puma gauge cluster (which appears to be the same as the LR3) with an LS engine, correct?

That's right. Gotcha. You'll have the most powerful defender there! What's fuel run? I'd guess the swap gets you better mileage than before anyways, so who cares! ;-)

Check your ground if you're getting erratic readings. A solid ground to the engine block is a must. Grounding to the chassis won't cut it.

You should find the electrical circuit diagrams manual and electrical library manual for your truck. The circuit diagrams have the schematics and the electrical library has photos and location views of each connector. I see that you have an M3 so you're probably familiar with BMW's diagrams (ETM & WDS). LR diagrams are similar, but the old ones, about 94 and older, are crude engineering drawings. It just takes a little more to figure them out. Keep in mind how BMW color codes are in German (e.g. SW for black), LR colour codes are in British English (e.g. B for black). And the same colors are used for different things between vehicles so don't get confused (e.g. black is for engine speed on a BMW, but black is for earth/ground on a Land Rover).

Ground is well planted all readings accurate except oil pressure. Found ,ore info on the SA forums about a design issue with the VDO oil pressure sender and The madman, will try post the link.
They propose as fix with a resistor on switch inline to give the VDO a jolt and clean it, did this and it works sometimes.

As temperatures are about to drop to around -50įC out here we had to install a few systems today that will help warm up the car and prevent the diesel from freezing. Siberia in the middle of winter is not exactly where our 300tdi feels most at home but we're making it work!

If you donít have one already, highly recommend a radiator muff. Definitely helped at -50F in AK.

Indeed, definitely a must-have out here! Lots of people drive around here even with just a simple piece of cardboard.

Second pic is domelight/gauge light switch for lower dash

Can't tell. What third is but you will want to tape up that scraped brown wire, as it's live all the time and can cause a fire if it shorts

Ok thanks. I'll check out that brown wire before I put a battery in. Second picture is a connected that Ys off the turn signal main bundle.

I replaces the dipstick tube. Itís barely tightened down. How the heck do you wrench the nut down over the olive? Thereís little space for much leverage, even with a crowsfoot.

Fuck the crows foot. Use a o2 offset sensor socket. Much easier
