    Front rocker cover bolt leaking oil

    They are very cheap and fit under a steel cap under the bolt. I've never had oil come out of them but have had moisture get in. If you replace, be careful not to over tighten. Would be a good idea to do the rocker gasket at the same time.

    There are big rubber seals under those - are yours perished?

    Advice needed re noise from propshaft/gearbox

    They will be causing a problem!

    Listening again, I'm even more certain it's rotational fouling. Are the prop weights in tact?

    Because it appears to be speed dependant, that could be why it doesn't affect 4th. Some vibrations etc. don't occur at higher speeds. Have you tried coasting? Only do it if your brakes are good but when the noise is present, knock it out of gear. If it's still there, I'd put money on it being the prop. Somebody commented about removing the rear prop and driving in front wheel drive - that'd also be a good idea to help identify the problem. Good idea to check the hand brake drum too. Over wound shoes tend to make a different sound but something could have become dislodged causing fouling. Start taking things to pieces!! It won't fix itself!

    It's definitely motion dependant but sounds more like something is catching on part of the drive train somewhere. Have you had your head underneath already? Look for any obvious obstructions. Next would be UJ and prop shaft itself. They can make a lot of noise when seized but to be honest, not like this sound. I suppose if your gearbox mounts are knackered, it could mean that the prop is fouling somewhere... Look for shiny/grazed metal where it could have done this.

    Price to pay for 200tdi engine

    That would certainly be different but very nice!

    It's a lovely thing but that diesel engine in an 80' is regrettable. Nevertheless, it looks like a great job.

    2.5L Diesel vs. 2.5L Petrol

    Current climate for diesels (although misguided) suggests petrol is a better option. They're lovely engines. I'm a big fan of a decent diesel engine but the driving experience of a petrol is vastly more comfortable.

    Ow lord, random repairs? metric vs imperial front axle

    Can't offer any help but absolutely! Rear brake assembly, prime example. Later Landys are a soup of BL parts - whatever they had available!

    Absolutely. Testament to the versatility of Land Rover.

    Indicator stalk

    Oh okay, cheers. The last one I looked at didn't have that. It's a late series III so should be fine. Thanks!
