You can get a kit for 40 to sort it out. I'm going to spend the 40 on diesel I think!

Something i surprised codders didnt spot..........
Puts on landrover Anorak.........

The Defender name was not adopted until 1990 as a measure to distinguish the utility Land Rover model from the Discovery and Range Rover. Between 1983 and 1990 the coil-sprung utility Land Rovers were officially known as the Land Rover Ninety or One Ten,

I will get my coat

I noticed but didn't want to be the anorak! Didn't they also change from Ninety and One ten to 90 and 110 at some point?

As I understand it, the biggest problem with the TD5 is that it has very specific fuel specifications/requirements - OK in the UK, but not in some places where one might end up. That's why they use a Brazillian manufactured 300TDi engine on export Defenders.

As pointed out, they are also a pain to maintain etc. Just look at the engine oil spec......

they are a bit steep to service, filters engine and gearbox were about 75 quid, 5w30 and super atf came to another 68 quid, a tdi would be less than half the cost to service
