    Having said that: diesel is for trucks and gas (lpg) is for cooking I'll stick to petrol for the time beeing.

    Why a Benz? The things came with the BMW M51 I6 engine from the factory. Much easier to fit one of them, I would have thought.

    Nothing wrong with the P38A gearbox and transfer case. Besides, the P38A has the diffs on the opposite side to the Disco so your propshafts would not align.

    The plastics on my P38A were still good after 20 years, at least 13 of those it was never garaged.

    I know the Beamers are much easier to fit, especially since they came as standard but I do not get the same warm feeling of confidence on those units. The merc engines really do a million miles without a rebuild...

    slightly ot: Speaking of BMW, did you know there were defenders with straight six BMW engines?
