Disco 200Tdi belt options

First trip on the highway and my belt broke.

Anyone know of any comparable belts that could spare the rise of shame on a flatbed home?

Sitting on 395 shoulder now.

Thanks.

Home is only 3 miles so I guess I could use panty hose if I had some. I think I saw Macgyver do that once.

Just spoke with Neil and he may have found a belt that will get him home.

You are the biggest boy scout "be prepared" type I know. Surprised you ventured out without spares aboard.
When is our Uncle sending you down here, next month ?

10 days before I go to DC, so Rover prep is PRI ONE.

Thought I had a leaky turbo based on some oil spray on the windshield after a friend arrived with the belt from Napa and I drove home. Saw some oil seeping out of the top hose from the intercooler to the inlet plenum. I pulled the turbo outlet hose and it was dry as a bone. Intercooler pipes are all new, but the intercooler is used. Must be residual swarf. Time to soak the intercooler.

I had my friend follow me back and he reported that the truck is dog tracking. We re-measured the driveway alignment and I was off by 1/4" so we adjusted that and went back on the road. Still dog tracking. We measured hub to hub on both sides and it was off. Can't remember exactly how much, but it was approximately 1/8".

Dropped the truck off at an alignment shop. They had their tech come out and we crawled around. He's putting it on the lift now while I do some research and see if the service manual has any info on alignment. He wants the service manual on .pdf, so I will be heading back there shortly.

I couldn't get the EGTs to 1000F on the highway even up an incline. I still think my IP isn't spot on. I do like the Auber dual channel instrument though. I'll take a video of it from a stop as I go through the gears and post later.

Wing arrived from Texas today - Thanks Victor - so going to sort that out and make it look like an ExMOD wing.

The only think that is adjustable is toe. It should be slightly out. You can set it with a tape measurer.

If anything else is out, something is bent.

1000 F? Turn up the juice!! The only numbers that matter are at sustained full throttle and it will vary with rpm. You need to find a hill that you can slowly accelerate from 2000 rpm to redline (if possible) over many minutes.
