      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.

        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?

      Thanks Alistair, All I do is switch on ignition and not turn over engine. I wait each time to listen for the noise and then turn off and on again if no noise is present. Apparently low fuel pressure has come up on the fault code. I have a auto electrician taking a look later, am I on the right track? Cheers.

      Hi James, I have problem starting my Freelander. I have to wait for a humming noise to stop before starting. A friend said it came from the diesel pump. My mechanic agreed and replaced it. £260 later a pump fitted the problem still exists. I turn the key continuously for 3 to 4 mins before this noise kicks in and then it starts fine first time. Once started it runs fine. Thanks Phil
