    Re: defender 300tdi flat spot or miss

    Bummer.

    Do you have another 300Tdi close by, after lockdown, as a reference.

    See how big the difference is.

    You only have to replace the insides of the ball joint, if it's that type.
    That is a 10 minute job.

    If the head is in spec IAW the manual, use it.
    But if cracking at valves refer to manual to discard.
    If warped out of limits, replace.

    I can give you manuals for older Defenders including the 200Tdi but unfortunately not for Discovery.

    If it's only the engine part you're looking for this might help.

    Do they heat treat the casing after welding?

    The heat affected zone is where most cracking will occur.

    Do not attempt to adjust the injection pump without a EGT guage.
