I would check your grounds because I've seen erattic idle and stalling on a 97 volkswagon that had a disconnected ground, ran great after I fixed the ground. Also is there a way to clean the MAF? Mines a few years old and I'd like to clean it just for the heck of it.

I have to pop the hood and see how it comes off. I may switch it with my 110.

I got a re-manufactured MAF from ebay-UK from a place in the UK that rebuilds them a few years ago.
I can't find them now, but you will want to make sure they will ship to the US.
May have been these guys---> MAF

I was tracing a problem similar to yours when I got the bright idea to "clean" the MAF. Do not try to clean your MAF. After cleaning it I took it on a test run and it ran like sh1t full time instead of once in a while.
Unplug your MAF, and if you do not notice a change, then that is it.
I think it may be a cracked rubber vacuum hose. Did you check out the VSS?
The idle control thing goes into an alumnium piece that you can remove and clean. There is a product called MOC, they are in Cali #818-794-3500 it is a fuel injector cleaner that made a wold of difference in my D110.
You can also pore a product called Sea Foam into the vacuum hose that is on the top right side of the air plenum (PCV valve). Follow the direction from Sea Foam. You can even look up Sea Foam on YouTube to see what that will do.
Oh hell since half my post either have a picture or video here you go:
You will most likely smoke up your whole neighborhood!

I have had every vacuum line tested and hence I ended up with a new distributor vacuum advance. I was told by a shop that the VSS would cause issue while i was driving and not just at lights. I did a search on MAF and everytime the issue reads like mine.

well, switch with the MAF from the 110
but it is still well worth it for every gas NAS Defender to use MOC after every oil change, and the Sea Foam procedure at least once every 10k.

95s do have the VSS. When mine went out I only had stalling issues when I would slow down/stop. Barry, contrary to what your shop said, mine never had issues while cruising.

Well mine isn't throwing a code. I switched the MAF from my two trucks a few minutes ago. Will drive around tomorrow and see what happens.

I used to do this in my Police Cruiser before every oil change...people in my neighborhood used to think a house was on fire from all the smoke clouding up the street. I would laugh my ass off each and every time. I use SeaFoam in my gas every few fill ups to keep things clean.

My truck is still having the same problem. I'm taking it to have the fuel pressure test today and start from scratch on trying to figure this thing out.

Good luck with yours

Drove all day with no issues with the MAF from 110. Drove 60 miles over the day and nothing. I might drive the 110 with the 90s MAF to see if the issue is there. If it is I think I am done.

So you have a good working MAF and unplug it what will it do?

The 90 road like a champ all day. I drove the 110 with the 90's MAF for about 10 miles and had no issue. I need more testing to be sure. Other thing is the MAF in the 110 was LUCAS and the one in the 90 was stamped land rover. I wonder if I will see problems in either truck now (yes it is a rover so I am sure I will) but I wonder if the plug was loose or something and switching them fixed it.

More after more driving . . .

Hey Barry, Updates? Mine is doing what yours is doing. Taking it to the Rover Shoppe in Houston tomorrow. In the past the following items have been replaced: Fuel Relay, Computer, O2 Sensors, Alternator rebuilt (couple weeks ago). I hope these guys are as good as I think they are.

I replaced the MAF and never had the issue again. Been running well for over a month.

Also good to mention, I've seen trucks with erratic stalling and idle from a hole worn out in the large diameter hose between the MAF and the intake manifold. Apparently its easy to rub a hole into the hose when its touching something. Glad you figured it out, had the same problem years ago, changed the MAF now its good to go.

Yeah I changed that hose to the rubber one. The original ones that were some fiber weave get brittle over time
