    Land Rover Discovery-that's exactly what I used.
    Here's a cheap PCV valve:

    Here's the principle drawing.

    I would really focus your attention on the radiator. I have a dimpled core 4 row on my TF. Recently I switched tstats to one with a bleed hole to help with getting air out of the system on a refill. The hole is only about 1/16 dia and has a small brass tickler plug in it to boot. With this small opening, my car no longer gets to opperating temps unless it is over 75 out. Period. The water pu...

    Have had Accispark on car for 2 years, 5000 miles. No problems at all.

    After hearing that someone had their loom burnt when an electronic ignition failed shorted, I have a line fuse in the supply wire. This person's ignition wasn't Accuspark but I think it's a worthwhile precaution for any such module.

    If you can get a good original head here for $350 AUD you're doing pretty well Gene. That's about $265 US. If they're cheaper in the States it's probably because about 70% of TD's ended up there. Cheers

    How thick on yours Len?

  • TW Burchfield04 August 2015

    Butch. I'm actually old enough to have owned flat heads before they made a comeback. You're right, not enough heat is bad (not as bad as too much heat) for an engine and performance. I'll remember the slat comment when I get my car running. Thanks.


  • Gene Gillam04 August 2015

    Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't that a bit expensive? Or have heads gone up that much in price in the last few years?

    I fitted the simonbbc points replacement unit after many issues with condensors failing and being stuck at the side of the road 3 times.

    Easiest mod i have done to the car and the one that made the most difference.

    Engine took on a new lease of life and i never looked back.

    Of course this performance improvement may be to do with my skill (or lack of) at adjusting points etc.....

    The 1098 gearbox was a rib case. The difference is in the ratios. there were 5 different sets of ratios, not all interchangeable. This is only important if you are rebuilding a unit. That gearbox will work with a 1275. I wouldn't be interested in your 1098 if it is apart. I do have a spare 1275. I have to check in the garage to see what the engine number is. Any Bugeye parts that I have also fit ...
