      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.

      Hello James! Yesterday I have raised a question regarding on Discovery Td5 manual gearbox oil pump sealing. I was told that your are the man who can answer. Looks that my gearbox is leaking at the oil pump and I would need to change the O ring. According to Rave the gearbox extension has to be removed. Is that right or I can do it just simply undo the 3 bolts and pull it out?
      Thanks

      I have a Dixon Bate Tuckaway Crane for sale. It has been totally restored, shot blasted and powder coated in the notable yellow colour. complete with instruction and installation manual. I had planned to build an RAC Recovery Truck but plans changes and hence for sale. any interest out there, photos can be supplied. Where would be best to advertise or let other know about, thanks.

      any idea how to change oils in clutch slave cylinder, it's black in colour and pedal just out a small bit when it bites

        You need to flush out the grey stuff with new brake/clutch fluid. Fastest way is a pressure bleeder but can be done the old fashioned way also! Good luck and hope the clutch isn't worn out as well!

      Good morning
      I have a 1999 Disco 2 TD5 with a bad power steering leak which has been made worse since adding a well known bottle of additive guaranteed to stop leaks. I have no knowledge of these vehicles so is a new steering box the solution or is a repair kit possible please?
