If its a TD, stick with it. the 200 hasn't anywhere near the low down torque.
I just happen to have a spare set if injectors for a TD, should you want to refurb. What sort of miles has the engine done?

They all work before instructors from your skool drive em!.

Regarding the vehicles as I know how to take a corner this means they stay on the road and don't get written off! Therefore they they do tend to wear out! my launching technique does however exascerbate (yoiu know what I mean) the corrosion problem

Yeah all right then I'll stick with the td Can you I stick a Fairey on to the 110. (by fairey I mean an overdrive and not Jono G!) as the pull is fine but the crusing speed is a bit low!

I'd be interested in the Injectors( how much dya want) PM me with a price

Fairy overdrives in good nick are rare as rocking horse sh1t. If you find one the selector rods are usually missing. The new GKN will fit a 5 speed (LT77) g/box, but not a 4 speed. At 850 + is it worth it?

4 or 5 speed wise, see if you can shove the gear lever further right than 3rd. Easier still is reverse top left or bottom right? I asume you use reverse.
