depends on what your after in the end as to how hard its gonna be

all i really know about this retrofit is if your using the disco gearbox and transfer box youll have to cut a large chunk out of the middle of the seatbox for the gear lever and build a larger tunnel to house the new gearbox wich is a world of fookin about

on the other hand i have heared you need to drill the bellhousing on your original gearbox to match the disco engine then mess about with the thrust bearings n clutch levers to get that working

in both instances you will have to remove the original engine mounts from the chassis and weld the ones from the disco into your chassis legs to accomodate the new engine

other than this i havent got much experience of this conversion but im sure it wont be long before someone with extensive knowledge of this comes along

but in the meantime see if the search function turns anything up as im sure theres a few threads on doing this type of upgrade

brakes won't stop it, half shafts won't last. Don't know about a series but into a 90/110 you need the flywheel housing off the N/A fitting to the 300tdi.
