Def 200Tdi heat shield?

Hi all,
after getting my SIII engine conversion up and running
it's time to concentrate on details:
In some Defender 200Tdi engineroom pictures
I've seen a heat shield above/around turbo.

Is it really necessary? My "new" engine came without one.
If it's needed, does anyone have an extra one or perhaps
somebody can give me a hint where I can find one?

There aren't too many (any) Def200 engines around here,
and Disco is different, as you know...
Of course I could make a shield from sheet metal,
but the original looks much better.

Cheers,
-J-

you're not a marine engineer, are you, by any chance?

breakers, I'd guess. Although the original parts may not be expensive new.

as to whether you need it - what's nearby or above that'll get overheated?

Sorry, I've got nothing to do with marine engineering.

Well, that's the problem. L-R is not very common brand here ->
no chance to find one from any breakers.
AFAIK defender 200tdi was never officially imported here.
I got my (second-hand for this conversion) engine shipped from UK.
But I haven't found the shield for sale on any (L-R parts, UK)
web-shops. Don't know the part number and so on...

Basically there's nothing that differs from factory defender.
I'm a bit worried about my new, shiny paint on the bonnet ;-)
and as mine's LHD the exhaust is quite near to the footwell and
the loud pedal. Will it get too hot around there on summertime?
Then the brake booster/reservoir is next, but it's further.
No-one has any experience about this conversion, or engine,
on this part of the world, yet.

From experience with various turbocharged engine conversions I'd be
making up an aluminium heat shield to stop it frying anything close by -
especially the brake booster (and probably the bonnet paint).

I'll appreciate your advice, this is my first eperience with turbo engine.
Another "sensitive area" is the fuel filter, which i forgot to mention.
It's still in the original place of SIII diesel -> only ~20 cm from turbo.
So far no problems, but temperature is around only +5 C at the moment..

I'm still trying to find the original shield, it might rattle less
than self-made one.

Cheers,

Re: Def 200Tdi heat shield?

Hi,

Ive been running a Defender 200Tdi (in the UK) without either
heatshields for about 10,000 miles and no problems so far. OK, the
bonnet gets a bit hot but not too hot to touch or to deform the
paintwork.

The heatshield around the turbo is approx 40 and the one that
protects the start motor / clutch slave cylynder area is about 10.

Should be OK without them...

Jon

Mine fell off around 80,000 miles, and 160.00 miles later
no ill effects are apparent, though it is a lot more
vulnerable to getting drenched when wading without it.
