The drive vacated by the injector pump was used to power a vacuum pump for the system. As well as some suspension and steering system changes, the biggest update was an improved diesel engine. Also those tdi's that are automatic have dedicated auto transmissions that shift gears and lock out the torque converter at a rev range that is different to that of a transmission for a V8. The engines are listed below in the chronological order of their introduction. This shared many parts with its petrol-fuelled sibling, including the block, valve gear, cooling systems and lubrication systems. The Defender and Discovery versions are different - they have different front covers, manifolds and the turbo is located differently Defender: above inlet manifold, Discovery: below inlet manifold. Santana would also have exclusive sales rights in Spain, South America, Central America and North Africa, selling both Santana- and Land Rover-badged vehicles in these markets where necessary.
There was also a new cylinder head, turbocharger, intercooler and direct injection system. The Discovery Series I model is a car manufactured by Land Rover, sold new from year 1996 to 1999, and available after that as a used car. It lacks the fitted to the standard engine and has the mounted in a different location. The merger was called off, but Rover had gained vital experience and knowledge in developing small diesel engines. The engine was fitted with a high-capacity breather system to cope with the greater volumes of gas flow through the engine.
This had been common on large commercial vehicles for many years but was still fairly rare on smaller diesels in 1989. These engines designated 23L had Bosch Electronic Diesel Control systems, where the mechanical injector system was controlled by a drive-by-wire electronic throttle to reduce emissions. They needed 3 litres because the car was competing higher up the market than the P4, and they needed 7 bearings to improve smoothness for that market. The key difference was that the petrol engine retained its timing chain, since it lacked the need to drive an injector pump. The engine became a special-order only option after the introduction of engines see below but remained in production and popular with military and some commercial buyers until 1994. Project Falcon was started in 1984 to develop a turbocharged version of this engine.
A number of major components were carried over including the crankshaft and camshaft. By this time buyers were limited to those with specific reasons to buy petrol-engined vehicles- for example several bought fleets of 2. There is also evidence of the 10J engine being offered as a conversion for Volga saloon cars by a Belgium-based company. By upgrading to a larger intercooler and 'tweaking' the injection pump you can also increase the hp and torque considerably! The 300Tdi could not be fitted to any of the car range and was about to fall foul of the upcoming. In the end production reasons meant that Land Rover favoured instead.
Some product and company names mentioned on this site may be trademarks of their respective owners. Lessons learnt from the Diesel Turbo were included, such as the fitment of an inertial separator in the breather system to remove oil before crankcase gases were returned to the air intake. The designers had aimed at increasing servicing intervals so the engine incorporated both conventional and centrifugal. Since then I've just updated the page as I come across engines that would be potential donors for Land Rover transplants. The direct-injection system meant that only machining of the injector sockets was needed to allow the fitment of spark plugs.
To reduce engine weight, extensive use of castings was made for the cambelt case, vacuum pump, rocker cover and other parts. To overcome the block cracking issue Land Rover bolted a large aluminium strengthener between the block and the sump. In real terms, there is not much to separate the engines in terms of performance, whilst the parts and systems they use can vary widely. Where the kits have been installed workshops are instructed to paint a 2cm square yellow block on the upper left side of the timing cover. The Storm utilised by at the time this technology was rare on small-capacity engine, being used only on large and a cross-flow aluminium alloy on a cast-iron. The final list is posted below so feel free to draw your own conclusions. I will do my best to be frank and informative to all.
As before, the engine was smooth and refined, and provided the Land Rover with adequate road performance. Notes: 28 inches long, 26 inches wide and about 27 inches tall. The 200Tdi is also reputed to have better engine durability and has a lower fuel consumption than the 300Tdi. The engine's power output and speed range was close enough to the existing petrol engine to allow the same transmission unit to be used on all vehicles. In 1988 a new block and an improved design of bearing and bearing cap was fitted which solved these issues. They received the designations 14J and 15J respectively. So the bore centres were repositioned and it ended up as very different from the original 2.
In 2002 the engine was improved to reach Euro 3 antipollution stage, and an system was introduced.

This was more refined and powerful than Land Rover's own turbodiesel, but was expensive to buy in and soon developed a reputation for eating head gaskets. The engine's relatively low compression ratio and general strong design made it tolerant of poor quality fuel and oil as well as infrequent servicing.
An intercooler boosted power and efficiency further. Diesel Engine Alignment : Longitudinal Engine size - Displacement - Engine capacity : 2495 cm3 or 152. The 6-cylinder version was considered too large and heavy for the but a turbocharged 5-cylinder variant was considered since it provided an ideal blend of power, weight and size. The Rover 95 P4 kept the 100 engine give or take a few tweaks and the new 110 took on the Weslake-head 2. Diesel technology had improved, making small-capacity high-speed engines practical. The Rover Motor Company was in talks with in 1954, with the possibility of a merger.
