I'm Mike and I don't have an RR but a 2001 Disco 2 V8.
I joined the forum to share and gain knowledge from other V8 owners.

I hope all are doing well during these crazy times. Ta!

You aren't the only one, BrianH also runs a V8 Disco 2 and they do share quite a few parts with the P38. Welcome.

Cheers Gilbert! It's good to know I am not the only Disco owner on here.
I recently cleaned out my valve covers to add new Fel-Pro VS50789R gaskets.

Welcome! Nice! I had a nice V8 on my sights (even had rear A/C!) but I ended up ... going back to the Queen. Still look at them though, eh eh ....

Welcome Juke. Two questions: 1. how the hell did you get the rocker covers that clean? 2. how come you managed to figure out how to upload photos so quickly ?

Hi Mike, welcome. I also have an '01 Disco in addition to my '97 P38, both V8's. Both great vehicles.

Thanks all for the welcome!

@romanrob … I bought a bottle of LA’s Totally Awesome cleaner online. I poured it into the covers, let it sit for 20 minutes then scrubbed it out with a stiff bristle brush. I could have used oven cleaner but I don't want to mess up the aluminum.

As for the uploaded pictures… do you mean like this? :-)

I used the "Image" button above the reply box and added the website address for my stored picture.

That's how you do it but it seems to give problems for a lot of people for some reason. It can be a bit of a pain to have to upload the image to imgur or similar and then link to them rather just uploading directly. It's one of the upgrades to the site Gordon intends doing when he get round to it.
