Was about to say that's one way to cover up any galvanic corrosion.
Me I just drove mine.

Not a Defender, and since my Series and my RRCounty are both working fine, I worked on the LR3: pads, rotors, tires, water pump, thermostat housing, lower rad hose connected to cooler, RLC compressor, identified transfer case leak, filled washer fluid. You know, the usual 140k service stuff.....

Wired up for trailer. But I think I need to use the old class three hitch rather than the Pintle for towing my m416.

Not sure why there is even a waste gate on these trucks. The turbo's barely make 1 bar of boost.

Replaced ignition coil on my 1994 NAS D90 with Bosch unit. Job took all of 15 minutes, most of which was finding a narrow enough wrench to unmount the existing unit. So far I think this solved my intermittent power loss and lean running issue. Best $50 spent for the unit thus far.

I really like your approach to wiring in the engine bay. It's a lot easier to manage when the electrics are in one place on a truck!

Is it possible to lift the m416 instead?

Replaced the crappy Expedition Exchange fuel can holder with a much better Front Runner fuel can holder. This one will actually hold any of the three 20 liter cans that I own. The other one would only clamp the crappiest and most beat up of the three.

For this - just use a 10mm socket and a 6" extension on the ratchet..
also if you get the pwr loss again i would look at replacing the Ignition amp module as well. but the cheap ones of those are crap.. better to buy used OEM

Got new tires today. Went up to 285/75/16s. They didn't look that much bigger until they were on the truck!
