take note that the engine is big and heavy and non-standard, though; it
should have had uprated front springs fitted. It may or may not be
undergeared - the V8 discos, are, it seems to me, lower geared than the TDis
at that vintage; or looking at it another way, the later 300TDi we have here
shows lower revs than my "200" V8 at a given road speed.

from the strawbuilt shed, The cock's shrill clarion, or the echoing
horn, No more shall rouse them from their lowly bed."

I think it said it was an auto, and as such should be strong enough. Half
shafts might suffer, I suppose, although not as bad as the Series motors, as
you have 4 of 'em sharing the load.
