Passed inspection. No notes this year. Thumbs Up


Massive congrats

Funny enough also read some of the USA forums ref the petrol V8’s , ie, timing chain tensioner guides etc, alas can’t remember if it’s the 5.0 where the front thermostat housing at the front of the engine splits and there some aluminium upgrade

Admittedly not read much about the later D5 3.0 petrol engines and if there any better

Happy new year and once again congrats on the disco passing

Hi Gary
Yes iv seen Bacon he is our local mp iv posted that my self. He is miles better than boris's brother who we had forced upon us by the local Conservative party not that I bother to vote. He does seem to speak a bit of common sense greatly lacking in government.


Re the timing chains, that's the 5.0 engines the 4.4 jag D3s seem pretty bullet proof. Let's hope.

That's a very interesting clip of an MP who's trying to help millions of people, having shown what a despot the said mayor is, perhaps he should be hounded out of office like a previous prime minister, only time will show!

"Betty" just hit 195,000 miles just outside Innsbruck.

Saw a record low of -15 on the dash one morning, still runs flawlessly. I love this car.

Thumbs Up Beautiful part of the world - I was close when I went to Nalchik and climbed Mt Elbrus. Amazing history in that region.

Finland 2005 Discovery 3 4.4 V8 HSE Auto Cairns BlueDiscovery 3

Got the dreaded alternator whine, and a whiff of smoke/burning/whatever you want to call it. Battery voltage was yesterday 11.5 -ish, trying to recondition with a ctek didn’t seem to help, either. Vehicle did not want to start this morning at the local Indy.

So - new Denso alternator and new battery (Exide EK960 this time) and all is well again.
