Re: Overdrive question

The original oil spec was EP90 (as also used in the diff) but these days you tend to get EP80/90 which seems OK.

Re: PAS assistance level

If you can hear gurgling noise when you squeeze one end it suggests that you have fluid in the gaiters - which shouldn't be there! Also check the pipe unions on both ...

Hi John, Yes, i get those message most (but not all) of the time. I tend to copy the post onto the clipboard before I click 'submit' (just in case it all gets lost) but it has always remembered the post when I get back to that topic. I have no idea why but I think it might be associated with the spe...

Inappropriate advertising

You may or may not have seen the odd advertising that appeared here overnight. On investigation, it all seemed a bit dodgy so I have deleted the posts and the new user who created them!

Now I need to go and update the new-user questions!

Cheers,
Mike.
