My tear down is complete. All this is left is the pistons and crank and block obviously. I have a couple questions:
1)Should I even both trying to get the Woodruf key out of the old cam or just get a new one and press(?) it in
2) Timing cover gasket: Is this a good rightstuff substitution or use the actual gasket. If so any type of sealent that needs to go on with the gasket?
3) I read somewhere about a kit for sale that replaced the gears in oil pump and provided increased pressure. I don't remember where that was, anyone heard of it or know what i'm referring to? I also want to fit an oil pressure gauge. I'm guessing I replace the oil pressure sensor with a pressure line? Anyone know part #s?
4) Lastly, the car was fitted with AC but I am going to remove the condensor and pump because I never use it however I want to still utilize the fan fitted the condensor. I was going to fit it to the radiator and attempt to utilize the same switch (I wasn't going to remove the wiring.) Ideally I would like the fan switch to be operated by the thermostat automatically but I have no idea how to rig that.
I really appreciate everyone's help from this board. This is the first repair (vs. mod'ing) work I'm actually somewhat enjoying. Car starts to look amazingly simple when you take everything out of it!
p.s. Nevermind about the gauge I just found the VDO project write-up
Land Rovers are by far the best looking 4x4 on the back of a flatbed...
