oil question

I have a 110 with a TD5 in it and the manual calls for 5-30. I would assume that this is recomended for areas where the temperature range varies a good bit. Here in Costa Rica you cannot find 5-30 and most mechanics say for the tropics where the temperature dosnt fluxuate they use staight 40. Any opinions?? I want to do oil change but at 10bucks a quart I want to do whats best for the life of the motor. Also not a newbee , been around for years changed email and forgot old password.

I wouldn't mess with Land River recommendations if I was you.

Contact the mods about your old user I'd and pw. They may be able to help.
A friend of mine runs a land rover / range rover specialty repair shop. Based on his experience, they are capable of stopping anywhere, anytime, at any cost.

I don't know about the brakes, only their unreliability.
