Bought this back, if your not too far north already that's what I'd use also

My wife and I have done several cross country trips in our MoD 90 with 2.5NA. We've even pulled a trailer through the mountains.

You will make it to the top of every pass, but it will take time!

Just ignore the guys who hate these engines. We just bought an 89 pick up with the 19J and plan to keep it.

BROKEN DOWN

Dead in the water in Murdo, SD. This AM was noticing excessive black smoke and lack of power. Pulled air filter and saw massive oil blow by. Not sure how long it's been happening. Could get a tow into Rapid City to look for a filter. Are there stock filters that would work? Other thoughts/recommendations? What are the risks of running for a bit without an air filter?

I ran a K&N cone filter on my 2.5na but I got it off Abe so I don't know the exact one it was

Any generic cone shaped air filter will work.

Sounds bad. Hopefully its not the death knell for the engine.
Hope you get the engine sorted and get to home under your own power!

Just think, this could be the worst problem you'll ever have with your Rover.

Is it still running at all?
Video?
Vitals?

The filters are common with a lot of industrial equipment. If you stop by a place that sells parts for loaders and bobcats and such they should be able to find you the correct size.

You should run it with the oil cap off and see if there really is a lot of blowby and report back.

Just installed the "corona bypass" and will run without a filter until the next town.

Okay, they look to be the same as the 2.5NA. Here are part crossovers. Is quite common for smaller machinery.

Back underway. Can't seem to upload a video. I'll try later. Now on the hunt for a filter.

Sourced a wix filter and have that installed. Traded out the Corona for a Natty Daddy can (see pic). My brother would like to now name the truck "Natty Daddy" but I have standards.

Presently 50mi east of Bilings. Planning to drive through the night so we can do the mountains in the cooler temps.

Sounds like a great adventure!
I've done Nashville to Chainberlain SD several times in my old nas 110.
At night look out for deer! The mulies out there will do a serious number on the occupants after you cut their legs off doin 63!
If you have a winch pull the cable out and loop it back over your rack to act as a "livestock splitter"
I Counted over 100 dead deer over a 2 hour drive from Sioux Falls to chamberlain several years ago on I90. In many cases yes the deer was dead but you could see the skid marks, the splat and then where the vehicle limped off to the side of the road and "bled out" too

So how were the mountains with your new air cleaner?

Did really well. Dropped down to 3rd (35-40mph) for the divide, lookout and 4th of July passes. The cool temps where a big advantage.

We are on the home stretch, 110 miles to go. We've been driving continuously for the last 24 hours and the truck has done well. Shame to do all of W. Montana in the dark but having cooler air was worth it. Sure wish I had a td5 for the hills!

Baring any unforeseen issues, we will have done WA DC to Seattle in 70hours.... In a new-to-me 110 with a 19j. Not too bad. Consumed approx 160 gal of fuel and copious quantities of RedBull and coffee.

Also - dodged a significant bullet in that the truck was shipped with two spares but both were gone when I fetched. Glad we didn't flat

Lots to get sorted and learn about, but on the whole I'm pleased with the truck.

Thanks to everyone for the advise and recommendations; all were greatly appreciated.
