I had a head related injury and my memory is not photographic as it once was.
I have a 99 Disco 1 SD 150k+ miles that I am in charge of maintaining.
The name of my game is best protection and longevity of original parts.
(Had original brakes and exhaust until 2010)
I need some fluid answers and others if it is okay for what I have in there now. Will any cause issues? Anything I can improve on?
I use Redline exclusively as I get a nice discount.
Right now I have:
Oil: Redline 10w40. Serving me well. I think I recall the 4.0 GEMS to be flat tappet and needs the higher ZDDP. ~5000 mile OCI
Differentials: Redline Heavy Shockproof
Trans: Redline High temp ATF (drain what comes out and top up once a year)
Zerks: bathed in Redline CV2
???Water wetter in the radiator. (What is the PROPER coolant? I read OAT from some posts on here)
Brakes: Castrol LM
Fuel: Redline SL1 as needed. Can't get E0 fuel in NJ
Transfer case: 75w90... BUT it is clunking and whining. Is it SAFE to use Redline Heavy Shockproof in the X-fer case?
Is what I am using now safe, or can something cause issues? Like coolant/antifreeze?
Again, I don't care about the price of fluid as long as they don't cause harm from being too thick/thin/wrong grade.
Anything I am forgetting?
I have read the RAVE manual in DiscoMikes sig, but Redline specs can be tricky for my brain to comprehend versus the RAVE & owners manual which I don't have.
I am going to do all the engine gaskets when the weather is a little better.
Along with replacing the cat-back that lasted 1.5 years from Atlantic British, and resealing the inspection plate on the X-Fer case.
The Rover has been amazing with volunteer work I have been doing after Sandy beat our ass up here with the floods and pulling trees out of local roads to be cut up after, plus the recent snows which she has been pulling cars from ditches when not doing serving as an animal rescue vehicle.
(I had been able to keep up with six vehicle maintenance schedules in my head along with paychecks and the like... Balance checkbook in my head and never forget... so it's been rough coping with this)
