After a lot of dreaming I've finally got my hands on a 2001 Defender 300Tdi. It's not quite made it home yet... during the 5 hour drive back I noticed a leak on the fuel injection pump so was driven straight to the garage and the pump is now with Bosch. There are many things that need doing anyway before it will pass the import inspection but I was still hoping to at least stop at home first!
This place has been a great resource so far and seems like a great community. I look forward to contributing in the future.
