    Forby "boost ring" anyone?

    I'm all for it. It's upped the value of second hand engines by at least 200quid and I've got second hand engines for sale

    Hampshire 200Tdi head refurb recommendation

    Buy the HG fromElring direct - lots of copies floating around. It's hard to mess up a 200 ,but it's nice to upgrade it a bit.

    Winch recomendations

    Been pulling timber around for a very long time now. Still run big clearance ops. Most contractors don't use Hydraulic or pto on little vehicles like Land Rovers. No point. Firstly hydraulic is for big timber, most of which is heavier than a 110/130; secondly it's blessed expensive and a pita to fit, needs moremaintenace and the parts are expensive. A decent, well made winch like the TDS 12k will work all day pulling small stuff (up to 18"), is very efficient in it's current draw, easy to maintain and easy to fix and the parts are cheap. Even our plant trailers run electric winches... Even a Winchmax 13k is good for all day working logs; slow and steady

    Winches for series

    I have a working,but needs love, Pierce on my bench. It's barely 14k lbs, but you are welcome to it. It was a kind gift from a Dutchman on here, so it's yours if you want it. Gratis Worm drive and ideal for sedate but massive recovery Also got a Husky 8000 in bits in a box - but money will have to change hands as is owes me. Not much, but I need to pay the same Dutch man for what he paid for it...

    OME 764's - 200 Tdi Disco

    My cheap carp front springs have sagged to the point where the tyres are rubbing on the arches on full articulation. I've got 764's on the rear, with 18mm of spacers. I'm thinkig of going 764's on the front for a 1.5" lift and bettr weight carrying... Any comments/suggestions? I run a relatively lightweight winch bumper and a G10, I've swapped back to silly string, no silly bash plate. I run 245/75x16's, soon to be on standar disco rims to bring them back inside the arches more. RAW4x4 Shocks, SuperPro Bushes (not castor correction), standard arms....
