Thumbs up

The old 90 got a lot done to her:
I've been battling a warm start issue. I changed the plugs and upon doing so I discovered the coil was leaking on what looks to be oil. I sourced a Bosch replacement for about $60.38 with free shipping from New-Part.com The actual part number is 0221122392
I installed it with the terminals upright and replaced the spade connectors with bolt-on style.
She fires up instantly cold or warm with no issue.
I also replaced the oil in the trans/xfer case and front and rear diffs with Redline.










Cheerio!

Day #6. Rest.
Day #7. Finished the stereo project and redid multiple wiring hacks (some landrover) at the rear corners. Delphi weatherpack connectors and grommets. Getting tidy! Rolling it out of the garage tomorrow to put back into daily driving duties.

Like how those came out. I bet they put out a good amount of light too.

do you have to drill & tap for the oil pressure sender? Where does that go?

If you get VDO PN A2C53413151-K2, you receive a bunch of metric thread to 1/8" NPT adapters, including m10x1.0, which is the 200tdi oil pressure sender thread. The plan is to use a m10x1.0 tee out of the 200tdi remote oil filter housing, then use the included m10x1.0 to 1/8" NPT adapter.

It's kind of gross plumbing-wise, but not a lot of other options

I tightened the left front wheel... All the lug nuts were not even finger tight and one was about to fall off.. How did this happen, you might ask? Well 3+ weeks ago I took it to a shop near my house that had just open and after taking 3x the amount of time quoted (I waited) to repack the front bearings I asked them to hand torque the lug nuts and not use an air wrench. Well they did that.. A little to literally.
Side note I was out of the country this whole time and forgot to double check their work when I got back

Yes I got lucky was driving my daughter to dance across town and stopped at a Starbucks to check it and fix it thankfully.
Wish you didn't have to QA all work but you do... I normally do most of the work on the truck myself and will keep doing that, no more untried shops for me, it's worth my time to drive over an hour to my normal shop.

Wish this was more of an option for me.

Glad you caught it

Oddly enough, out of the thousands of lug nuts I have tightened, the only one's I've ever left loose were on my own vehicle. I was working late on my own truck and I think the shop compressor had been shut off so my impact wasn't going at full power. I actually remember noticing it but didn't bother to check. It took at least a month for the lugs to loosen and the wheel didn't fall off. Its pretty obvious when lugs are loose. The wheel will click and cause a light vibration.

Took the B pillar Exmor trim cover that comes with the Soft top Padding that RN is selling and slid it between the best top and the B pillar to take up some slack in the old Best Top. Worked great in both cutting down the flapping and subsequent noise - as the padding covers come with holes in it where the snaps for the top can affix to the B pillar. Can post picks if anyone cares.

Always hand torque with a torque wrench. I carry a spare torque wrench and in an emergency situation I can always use as a breaker bar or in a apocalyptic situation it can be used as weapon.
