Long story short, a couple of years ago I attempted to rebuild my 200tdi motor (first time, never done it before). I did a lot right, but missed a crucial thing, and didn’t bore the cylinders enough. Equal compression, but poor compression - the engine smoked. I had the head rebuilt by Autosport machine shop in Seattle.

Rather than try my hand at rebuilding again, I just swapped it out with a pull out engine from Scott Yohman. Just finished installing it, and have the old engine (head good, block needs reboring), a LT77 transmission (used my old one), a LT230 transfer case (used my old one).

200Tdi’s are getting harder to find. Would rather these go to someone who can use them, fix them, clean up etc.., and recoup a little of my cost, then go to a junk yard. Make me an offer, I won’t be offended.
