Depending on what tyres you have on there, you should be running them somewhere around 2.4 Bar or even slightly more on asphalt - off road you can drop them down to 1.8 bar for gravel and down to 1.4 bar for the rougher stuff. :winkx:

The load sensor is there to apportion more braking power to the rear as the load increases, so you could increase the proportion quite dramatically without having the rear wheels locking up ...

Local diff does have a breather (no drain plug) - the breather is not on the pumpkin as on the import, but on the top of the RHS axle housing. Might have a small protective shroud (See pic below).

If you don't see it, it could be that it's missing. :think:

I'm not sure what the pump impeller material is on your model, but metals corrode and some synthetics erode. Whichever, if the impeller blades wear down, the pump is no longer as effective. It may be worth checking out.
