Hi Sue,

Would have had a chat but didn't see anyone with it while we were there. It looks to be very original, even down to the radio I think.

Cheers,
Mike.

The fan in front of the radiator is controlled by the ECU and will not always be on when you have the aircon on. My compressor clutch sticks sometimes and requires a tap with a hammer to get it to eng ...

DEF is mine. It's having a new LPG system fitted with Mark Adams chip set and 4 branch sports exhaust with some silencing so it doesn't completely deafen me. It's just been through a complete Simon Du ...

Hi Aaron,

Yes, they are the parts specified for the vehicle. I reckon they were changed on the production line to a lower rating and not back changed on the spec. For Range Rovers and Discoveries t ...

Hi Aaron,

Those front spring part numbers are what I had and gave it a very much nose up look. They are each half a kilo heavier than the original front springs and seem to be a whole lot stiffer. ...

As part of the restoration of GB231 I have had a load of mechanical work done, which has included the replacement of the suspension bushes with polybushes, Terra Firma dampers and new springs. I was s ...

It was nice to meet Romadog today at what turned out to be a very wet show at Gaydon. Hopefully it will grow year on year.

To check the auto box oil level the engine should be running so the torque converter is full. Start up from cold then check the level. You'll find it's 20mm or so lower when the engine is running.

Mine did that earlier this year. It turned out to be the linkage from the end of the steering column to the steering box. The splines on this are mild steel, where they are chromed on the ends at the ...
