Hi all, hope you're well.

Got weary of being told to STFU by a certain member on another forum and Marty (amongst others) recommended this site.
I've just donated my old P38 to a member on the other site but I still have my L322 and want to keep my hand in.
Let's hope things are a bit less confrontational on here. 😁 😁

Welcome, although you've just got rid of the reason for this forum existing as we are mostly (if not all) P38 owners on here. However, we're always interested in learning about the later ones...... What is it, a proper one or one of these oil burners?

Just make sure you get a round in and nobody will tell you to do anything, except maybe get another one in.

Thanks for the welcomes. Yes, the p38 has gone but I still have views and information to offer hopefully.
The L322 is a proper one with 2 sensible fuel options and none of this forced air malarkey on it. 😁 😁

No, nothing at all wrong with oil burners.............. In a tractor!! 😁 😁 😁
No, actually, I think there is no nicer engine note than a nice 6pot doozle.
I've just driven up to Aberdeen in our new vw amarok v6 diesel and it's excellent. 😁 😁

I quite like the noise the TD5 engine makes but when has anyone every revved a diesel engine and stood there with a big silly grin on their face from the noise it makes? Even the Le Mans wining Audi diesels don't sound nice compared with everything else. Problem with an oil burning L322 is that it also comes with the GM gearbox which, if you are lucky, is good for about 80,000 miles

That was the main reason I went petrol was the chinesium gearbox.
I managed to grab a very early jag engined variant in the end. Infinitely superior to the BMW lump.

But at least the BMW lump has hard valve seats so doesn't need a lube system fitting. A mate runs a Jag XJR and a 4.4 Disco 4, both on LPG.

Wazza, I feel for you, after your LZ experience. You'll find there's less bullshit masquerading as banter here than LZ. Anyway, welcome - sell the L322 and get a P38 again

Hello all. I'll piggy-back on Wazza's opening. There seem to be a lot of familiar names on here!

Seems we are the accepted place for refugees from LZ as well as RR.net now. All are welcome and nobody gives any grief here, we're all too busy nailing our motors back together.....

rr.net I know about but what happened on LZ?

Jeez, it's almost like being a dick to your users makes them not want to use your site...

Some rather closed thinking with a bit of name-calling rather than sharing of evidence.

Jesus wept....
Why is it that people just cant share a bit of info and have a sense of humor. RR.net was a great source of info except for the c&ck a$$ moderator with a handle similar to that of a large frog...... some of the guys there really helped me with my rebuild, and honestly, i enjoyed the site... except for large frog dip sh1t........
Shame the site allows him to moderate it into what is is becoming.....

He's been demoted from Admin to Moderator and hardly appears on there these days, I haven't seen a post from him in months. I was made a Moderator as the existing ones didn't seem to be doing anything (and I've never edited a post or banned anyone for having a sense of humour although I've tried posting stuff that would have got me a ban from him in the past and nobody has said anything). The biggest problem with rr.net these days is most of the knowledgeable have left in disgust and it's now mostly new members asking the same old questions that have been asked and answered many times. Very few seem to work on their cars and are always asking how to fix the problems that have been introduced when their 'mechanic' did a completely unrelated job.
