In 1996 I bought a brand new 300TDi Disco, at the time I really liked it up until the timing belt failed at just 14K miles and less than 18 months old. I had a real fight with Landrover to pay up for it and then 3 months later the injection pump failed, again I had a real struggle to get any help from Landrover.
Soon after I sold the Disco and to be honest I always missed it. I now have a very nice Mercedes as my main car but have ended up with a 1995 Disco 300TDi as a 'play thing' and again I really like it.
I don't want the same to happen to this one!! I gather there was a modification to the timing belt gear on these engines. Can anybody tell me how to tell if mine has been done? From what I have found engines after VIN WA748935 have the modification. My VIN is SALLJGMF7MA133087, so I presume I am looking at the last 8 numbers, I wonder if Bearmach have made a typo error and that should be MA748935, either way mine was an early one and should have had the mod but how can I tell?
