So do I want two of the multi and one for the pump, or are you saying that they are really the same and just to get two of which ever?
Hmm, I can't remember. I'll check tonight...

The fuel pump relay is rated for 30 amps. The other general purpose relays are all 15 amp. There are two kinds of the general purpose; yellow and green. Yellow is 5 leg and green is 4 leg. Yellow is a dual throw "this or that" relay and green is a single throw "on-off".
Mouser Electronics has the fuel pump relays for about $3.00. Item # 655-1432772-1

I've called 3 places and all three have something different to say. One place says the fuel relay is 50 amps. Another place says they have a 4 plug (their yellow) and 5 plug (their green) relay but both are rated for 30 amps. And the last place has a 4 plug 'yellow' and a 4 plug 'blue' relay. Go figure.

So now I'm lost. Any suggestions?

So David, how was the trip? I read that a disco II had some problems on the first day. Did the defender fair well? From looking at few pics i've seen so far there were at least 4 Defenders on the trip.

After the fact, but.. I would suggest 2 small items to add to the list:

1) bring plenty of extra fuses..

2) replace your old clutch torsion pedal spring - it takes 5 mins (or bring an extra)

I am on my 3rd since 2001, so it is a good spare part to have kicking around.
I wouldnt want to be out in the middle of no-where-ville when its breaks.

Thank you all for your input. I'm sure the oil cool lines would have been the death of my D90 if I didn't have your advice.

Yes, we had 4 D's. Two 110s, and Two 90s. I was the only soft top and only manual out of 18 trucks. So I had different issues with driving (and breathing) then the rest. No one could advise me on some questions I had.

The only issue I had with my D - other then my lack of driving experience - was the headlights. after a very late start, drivingat 2:32am the night before with just 4 hr of sleep the headlights went out in the middle of BFN at 80 mph. Turned out to be the headlight switch.

Anyone know where the best place to get one with out spending my weekly coffee allowance?

Sadly this is where I depart with my D90. It's been great to me and in very good mechanical shape. But I need something the wife will get into and one that will keep the dust on the outside so I can breath.

This was most of the groop.There was a 1993 diesel 110 with a 2 inch Old Man lift, and a 1997 D90 plus some others behind me.

Sometimes it pays to be in the front of the group.

Looks like a great trip. From the shadow, please post your GoPro footage as well.

Not sure of where to source the HL switch at the best price, but make sure you add a relay harness for the headlights. It will keep the higher voltage from running through the switch and frying it.

Something like this would do: http://www.painlessperformance.com/w...v.php?sl=30815 Only thing you would have to do is extend the power wire so it would reach the battery box.

How about finding a fiberglass top for your ST? That should seal out the dust a lot more than the ST sides normally do. Is it just the dust/wind that keeps your wife out of the Defender?

We'll have to coerce Baldewin into coming out for a trail run up to Big Bear. His 90 is manual gearbox as well, with even less oomph than yours has since its a 2.5 diesel. With the auto gearbox trucks you can just line it up and bumble over stuff whereas with a manual gearbox you have to finesse things a bit more..

Or new switch and replace the headlights with LEDs. No need to futz with the OEM wiring then.

It's a comb of things. The dust is for me. The comfort is for the wife. But being able to fit my fur children in with all the gear is for both of us.

When my copilot finishes the footage I will post the GoPro vid. Do I need to create a link or can I post the vid here.

As for Baldwin, it would be great to meet him. But it did feel good to know I had one of the oldest trucks and a hand cap (my tires are some street version of off road) but made it to the end without any problem.

Oh yea. Any suggestions on cleaning out the interior? I know the ecu and my stereo doesn't like water too much. So is there another option?

Shop Vac it all out and then wipe down with a damp microfiber wash mit. Then go back in with compressed air to blow out all the dust from all the cracks and crevices and then repeat the Shop Vac / Damp Wash Mit / Compressed air routine as needed.. I'm still cleaning out all the dust from my truck when I led Miller Jeep Trail last month. I usually just stop caring after a while, but my wife is usually grossed out by the thick layer of dust all over everything.

MF Wash Mit I'm referring to btw:
