Ah, but this was in 1988 when alternative diesels were thin on the ground.
My Disco 1 is a 300TDi.
The Lightweight doesn't do many miles these days, and is far from standard.
High Ratio transfer box, giving approx RangeRover gearing in high box and Series gearing in low, so best of both worlds.
This is mated to a Borg Warner 66 out of a Series 2 Jag, and slowed down by TI Console disks at the front and LWB drums at the rear.
