165 x 80 x 15 tyres

Camskill up in Whitehaven do a Continental CT22 £50 a corner or a Vredestein Ttrac2 at £47 a tyre those Toyo's you mentioned, also £47 a corner, makes the Brown & Gammons expensive by my reckoning, which reminds me to bloody well order a set whilst available.

I think using engine oil has been discussed previously - was it an MG thing in earlier overdrives?
10/40 is specified for my SAAB 900's box and they as we know are capable on many hundreds of thousands of miles so can't be all that bad can it

I've just bought some 5ltr cans of MILLERS from their on-line shop. GL4 of course, for the gearbox; and 20W50 with high zinc content for the engine.
