I've seen here that many have had greaty success with MTF94 in their manual transmissions. The list I posted is what was in the 1997 Disco Owners Manual.

MTF94 for R380 Gearbox (1st class and recommended) with EP90 for F&B Diffs and T/Box ;)

MTF is causing heaps of confusion and adamant correction from my spanish motor factors, that what I mean is ATF, obviously they have never heard of MTF even after searching on their Computer, so given that it looks like I will have to make do with ATF,

thanks guys!!

By the way I am still struggling to convince my spanish neighbours and freinds (who are self appointed the best gardners on the planet !!)

that my LIME tree is not a LEMON tree and producing unripe mishapen LEMONS.

great people the Spaniards but damn stubborn!

Try and get some MTF 94 as the ATF is totally unsuitable for manual transmission - and was/is one of the main reasons for the Discovery gearboxes failing regularly .

If you go on the Difflock site you can order their EVO 1 or Evo 2 for your Disco - and I can vouch for their effectiveness .May seem a bit expensive but well worth it .

It seems LR originally recommended ATF for their gearboxes to disguise the poor synchromesh .
