    Yes, but unfortunately those Discoverys are proving to be quite hard come by hereabouts as wrecks these days. I did pick up something similar off a 2.5 litre motor in Zimbabwe when I was working there and felt quite chuffed with it. Unfortunately, on fitting it seemed to spew oil from several orifices and I had the RM as a backup so didn’t bother to try to make it leakproof.

    I figured that by the time I traipse all over the place trying to find a T piece that accepts the two sensors - and doesn’t look like a Heath Robertson oddity - it would be cheaper and quicker to import one of the adapters from Roverparts which already has two ports set in it.

    Cheers,

    Neil

The adapter I used was smaller in diameter than the oil filter housing and had a smaller gasket.

      Thanks for that advice. Genuinely appreciated.

      • I have a couple of updates for ya all.. Ok as you can see were moving right along. I do have a concern, the 9.5 clutch pack will not sit correctly on the flywheel because the locating pins are in the wrong location. The pins are set for a 9" pressure plate. Can I just remove one of the 2 pins? or do I need to go back to the 9" clutch pack? And or replace the flywheel?

        Thank you

        Scotty
