Yep- High, Unlocked for pavement.

Basically, you can use high range or low range anywhere on or off pavement BUT only lock the center diff when off-road or in slippery conditions(snow).

There may be exceptions...

Looks like a nice Rover.

Finished some stuff today... Got the new side repeaters and rear lights done. Def took longer than expected but came out nice. I have a double blink issue on the passenger side (makes trailer dash light illuminate). This is with the new relay installed. BoltOnBits gave me a replacement dash light that supposedly fixes this, but didn't have a chance to install.

Some pics

I wanted amber LED repeaters but couldn't find any that would work. These illuminate amber. Actually pretty happy with how they look. Very clean.


One side done...


All finished!

From my experiences with these older rovers, there are always some unexpected surprises along the way. It will keep you busy (if you have the time to DIY)
Enjoy the new "other woman" in your life ;-)

Thanks. Long Island meet?

Maybe I will bring this thing when it is ready to get tuned by this guy. Def don't feel comfortable doing that myself.

Thanks for the tips

If you still think power isn't where it should be I highly recommend getting your injectors checked/cleaned. I'm finding out the hard way what sort of havoc that can wreak.

Nice looking 90, best of luck with it.

This is a nice looking 90! Where did you pick up all the lights and lenses. They look good and my 1986 ROW would benefit from them. Thanks

Get some silicone hoses to replace the stock rover hoses

Also I'm close by if you want to test drive a 200

I second that, Chris from Rovertek is an incredible resource and the best LR mechanic on LI if you need help.
