      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.

      I have a leak on rear output oil seal ! I have changed once even greased it up with vas but still leaked. I inserted it carefully using old seal with soft hammer to depth of previous one but still leaks. Any ideas favoured

      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
