      Hiya young James, long time no see almost.
      its the old "easye 1"
      So much under the bridge so they say, my much loved early 3 door disco long gone, went to a collector your way somewhere. i ventured into a shiny black TD4 auto, as my left leg got worse so need autos now.. Hope your well, and the world continues as It should.
      cheers..
      Ian.

        James isn't on here as much as he used to be. Might be better asking in the Disco section of the forum.

      Good afternoon sir, as a knowledgeable man on the subject, could you please give me some advice on gearbox oil for my defender td5. Recommendation is for MTF94 so presume this is best but have you any advice on one over another? You have Westway and Smith & Allen's Geartech in the low twenties per 5l up to LR at over sixty.
      Is there that much difference?
      Thanks James, appreciate any advice.

      Hi James sorry to bother you I’m trying to phase a prop. 1) if I’ve put the castor rite after a lift should I still need to rephase my prop, 2) I’ve been 4 settings each way from the standard Land Rover phasing and still no joy at all, so do you think there is any point carrying on or do you think there is something wrong, I’ve even taken the prop off twice to check it’s that. Many thanks for your time

      Hi James, got a question for you. I've read all threads regarding doing body lift on my D1 v8 .the only thing going I'm not sure of is what do I slacken on the steering to allow the body to lift? Is it in engine bay or down lower I slacken? Hope you can help
      The other news is my doing really well .we were round there today and he looks like he's grown a bit already lol
