I'm yet to bring myself to running the brush over the sticker...
I think the stickers (or decals) are still available.

With a measurement of what's left, you may be able to find an exact replacement and put it in the same place without anyone knowing :wink:

Re: Discovery 300tdi clutch

44 days to change a clutch!!!!! In fact, I probably only spent about 20 hours 'spanner in hand', but flimmin' 'eck.

Basic alternator wiring

I can't seem to get my head around this relatively easy problem. I may be wirelexic... On my Deutz D 6006, vintage 1969 Deutz D 6006-600x337.JPG the old dynamo was not working, and when I opened it up I found it to be filthy.
