      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 , I recently posted a thread about the problems I’m having locating the correct adapter/reducer to fit the temperature sender to my replacement head . The one from my old head is to big , the one I require is approx 20 mm in diameter.
      I wondered if you had any advice on this subject please.
      Thanks Brett

      James, I have recently bought my first Defender. It managed 29 miles before oil pump and then engine failure.
      I am worried that the local mechanic that has arranged a new engine has simply ran off with my money!!
      I am beginning to wonder why I am bothering.... but i need to find a solution. I read that you rebuild engines, can you give me an indication of
      how long ang how much to rebuild a 200 tdi 1994 please?

      Good morning James.

      I joined the Forum yesterday, in some desperation. My 2.25 diesel is missing the drain plug, or drain valve located below the exhaust manifold. Local dealers don 't seem to be able to help me sort out a replacement part. I have been directed to your site.

      Hello James, I have a Sailsbury rear axle with a diff starting to make a grinding on the overrun. Are you able to point me in the correct direction for someone to repair / refurb ?

      Hi, I've just joined and I need some help with my two litre Mark 1 Discovery. I've just put my recharged battery back in the vehicle and when putting the battery terminals on, the starting motor runs on free spin until I take off the battery lead. Any suggestions please.
