Thumbs up 1996 defender 110 , Blake smoke through gears ??

Hi all ,
Just bought a 1996 defender 110 , (300 turbo, I think)
It's smokes on startup , normal I hear , (thick black)
In idle it's fine but tru the gears it smokes, black smoke
Low power on a hill and when turbo kicks in it sounds like it will take off ,
Is it possible the gearbox oil needs changing ? Engine oil changed 1000 miles ago
, off-road tyres and springs ( which I'll change ) is it maybe setup for offroad ,
Crap on diesel and I love it , just not the smoke !!
Any info would be great
Cheers

Well.... It could just be setup with excess fueling, which is black smoke.. or it could need some maintenance or adjustment.

Check or change the air filter and check the timing first and see how that goes.

You would need to drive others to decide if power is low or normal....

Gearbox and suspension has nothing to do with your smoke.

Cool thanks , the power doesn't bother me ,
It's there in the end ,
I thought maybe because of the off-road springs etc
That something was done with engine to help it do that ,
I'll check all those , it was layed up for 3 months so maybe a build up of old fuel ?
But thanks again I'll check timing and filter
Thanks
