    TD5 in a P38

    For the vehicle or motor? TD5 in a P38

    Diesels are very much on the outer in Europe these days.

    IMHO!!!!
    Down grade for a perfectly good TD5 if you ask me... but hey, who am I to judge right????

    Atleast it gets rid of one of the failure items on a P38A...so then use a Disco 2 auto and LT230 transfer case.... and wow, you have a good vehicle again...

    ohh... but then there is that non UV stable interior plastic to replace...

    dont all P38A owners wish they had Disco 2's anyway???

    ok ok...sorry all, no offense intended, just having a crack (oh I just couldnt resist!!!)

    ----
    PS a customer on here has a Range Rover Classic that is running a TD5 and Disco 2 bits, I think he is quite chuffed with it

    Regards

    G`day , the transfer may be a problem , do you move the diffs or fit the case upside down or something ?

    I think the D2 may have suffered as many , may be more V8 losses than the P38a and at least the P38a has an excuse they were supposed to be fixed by the time of the Discovery .

    I guess the TD5 can be bought fairly good now as there seem to be a lot of TD5 D2s for cheap but they have a few Ks on them .

    More just having a crack rather than anything useful as information.
    I believe from memory the customers Rangie Classic has a Disco 2 auto, TD5, all the computers, wiring.
    The transfer case was the orig Rangie one.

    Whatever you like but the P38A diffs are on the opposite side to a Classic so how do you overcome that in a P38A fitted with a LT230 ? It will bolt on but the tail/drive shafts may be a problem .

    Could adapt D2 (or even defender) diffs to the P38 and relocate any items that may be in the road of the tail shafts (fuel tank, etc)?

    That would then open up wheel/tyre sizes (legally) and those floating axles too!

    Who's first?!!

    I have a full disco 2 that has been written off. Swapping parts will not be a problem. I'm just unsure how to go about it with the bcu in the p38.
