Greetings, defender source!
I'm a new-again Rover owner (I owned a '65 SIIA 109SW years ago)--just took delivery of a '95 Disco with a 300TDI and R380 that's a friend has been working on for me for a couple years. And, yeah, it's not a defender, but I do have an entire drivetrain in common with y'all, so I thought I'd go ahead and stick my head up.

After driving an SIIA for about 10 years, I'm reeling. The Disco is kind of amazing--intermittent wipers, doors that shut decisively, heat, and the list just keeps going. I feel giddy every time I get in it.

Been lurking for a while and benefiting from a bunch of the threads; thank you all for what you do here.

Obligatory pictures--

The old truck:

Carlisle! (Although not for long--we're moving to DC this summer). Who's Trevor and where's his shop? Can't be too far away...

Trevor is in Elizabethtown, ie Hershey. He will be your MLCOA for anything out of the ordinary for your truck.

Great, thanks for the lead--I wasn't aware of Trevor. It's good to have a place to turn should my efforts at mechanical self-recovery fail. . .
