I need to recover my 460 280GEL - a tow of 14 miles with two minor slopes rather than hills - but will a manual 463 300GDL, with its awe inspiring 88bhp, manage it without needing a new clutch?  Advice very welcome.

No problem. OM603 actually has a jaw dropping 113hp.

Easy of the clutch. Use low range if needed.
