Now Zack, is that anyway to treat a potential customer with 20 Rovers? Keep that up and two people will refuse to buy parts from Roversnorth

Do my Rovers have a dissociative identity disorder? and should I seek help for them? After all they are an amalgamation of different Rovers...

Quite possibly - stems from a history of extreme abuse... Are you abusing your rovers? Folks round these parts would take a dim view of that partner...

I must admit, that I did turn a Rover tub into a treehouse for my nephew. He is 10 years old and has downs syndrome. If that's abuse, I don't want to be Rover Right.

But I digress. Let's get back to the Pizza issue.

With the TD5 transplants I've seen there are usually issues with patched together engine management wiring looms. You'll want to start with a sound loom that is fully integrated with the rest of the vehicle harness.

Have also seen management issues where the revs are limited due to some type of electronic stimulant that very few can figure out.

Clearly I am no expert on the TD5, but hopefully these tips will help you break the ice into the new age realm.

Thanks bro! Do you think it would be easier to install an entire TD5 wiring harness?

Wow! Sound a little desperate there compadre.

Just wanted some advice from those in the know regarding a TD5 install.

All things aside, can we get back on track? I appreciate any and all advice regarding the subject.

First of all, there is no desperation from stating a fact, you hijacked those photos from another board member.

Concerning your 'advice' on a TD5, tell you what. Go take a photo of your engine, or YOUR actual build with a paper from the last 4 months on the hood, also acceptable: magazines, postmarked envelops, hell throw a boot on the engine and take a photo, can't find that on google.

Then we will advise you on your imaginary TD5.

As soon as I get to my computer I'm going to block you. Get outside kid, breath some fresh air, maybe someday you'll actually want a land rover and not just to bother a great group of defender enthusiasts.

So you want this "kid" to give you "proof of life" or rather, "proof of Rover?"

Already did! and the pics are legit. So any help would be appreciated.

Thank you!
