I have been informed that the later engine is far more poweful , equivalent to almost a 2.5 TD (in old money !! ).
Can any kind diesel " Ace" shed light on this topic before I let go some of my hard earned Pension, buying the Bessacarr.
The 1.9 was rugged enuf, if a litlle underpowered, for what I lug about.
Have also heard stories about the problem of starting the later engine.. !!

Help and advice would be appreciated..
Regards Graham & Judith

I have a 1.9TD and was quite suprised at the performance.No trouble getting mine going, always first time but even so, I don't know the answer. Have to wait for a guru. I do sometimes hear the turbo which sounds like an irrate policecar coming up from behind which would never be a suprise to me if it did.
