Removed my 200tdi's exhaust manifold to install the pyro thermocouple, and found a lot of stuff to clean.

Also found the source of my oil leaks - it appears that oil is actually coming out of the exhaust ports for cylinders 1 and 4. What's the source of these leaks?

After disassembling the turbo and manifold, looking into the exhaust manifold, it appears that a hotside turbo seal leak would drop oil directly into the 1 and 4 cylinder exhaust manifold pipes. This leak would then be ejected via exhaust pressure out the manifold seal on the head.

Rebuilding the turbo now...

Hopefully what I thought was a rear main seal leak is actually oil dribbling out of the manifold.

New Victor Reinz 200tdi manifold gasket seal at the ready.

While doing the water pump I also polished all the copper water lines, brass heater switch and replaced all the hoses on the series 1.

First I THOUGHT I was moving to my new garage because the truck won't fit with a top on in my building's, then planned to put the new soft top on. Sadly I learned how raked my truck is empty, so it doesn't fit like I thought it would. Back to the storage unit the soft top goes until I find a new spot or decide to park the truck outside.

To feel like i accomplished SOMETHING I put in a Pelican case foam insert into the passenger under seat tool box to hold my roadside emergency tools.

Hmm, hadn't thought of that, interesting idea.

Put more tools/equipment in it?
Wont the foam hold any condensation/water in the tool box?

The foam would, but the box seems very dry. I plan to check it next time I'm in the wet (have to put a goddamn roof on it first, then fix the windshield wipers, then I'll worry about dampness in the tool box ).

But if it does get damp in there, I'm going to line the inside of the toolbox in a thick plastic vapor barrier to keep the foam dry.

Been trying to figure out a good solution for those tools.

Yea after I posted I realized you wrote ko2 not km2.

I'm going back and forth on the 2.
I ordered km2's from 4wheel parts at a great price 4 weeks ago.
Originally they told me 3 to 5 weeks back order.
Now I just got an email that said they can't tell me when... May be 8 plus weeks!
I can't wait that long

The KM2 didn't come is the size I wanted so it made my decision easier. local auto store matched 4 wheel parts at 156$ per tire.

When rebuilding your 200tdi turbo, make sure you have the narrow t2 bearings.

found the cause of my "stalling at the stop light" i believe...
short story is the main lead from the coil to the Distributor was trapped on the edge of the ALT heat shield and rubbing.. literally it rubbed a grove in it about 50% or more to the wire.

So at idle, the short through the remaining wire was enough to cause a stumble and stalling..

again i believe as i've only done 20 miles on it since fixing it (repositioned the lead and taped it, until the new wire set can arrive from Kingsborne)

the joy of 14cux it is amazing sensitive to ignition issues.

BTW, not codes from the stalling at all, i got my CL 45 solved (physically destroyed O2 sensors..drive shaft hit them)

Love it or hate it. Mounted the sand rails. Wanted a location that worked with truck cab and soft top. I have forward facing bench so I was able to use existing holes where the old troop seats mounted. Make pretty good seat backs

Similar location as the MOD Wolf XD. Too bad they are not black anodized.

personally, I like it, especially given the truck cab/soft top combo and forward facing seats

Installed the EGT probe on the 200tdi manifold.

Yes, it's cocked at a slight angle. Not sure why it occurred, because the drill went in straight and so did the tap. Oh well *sigh*

Also I've had to extract lots of broken studs on this exhaust manifold and turbo...very tiring!

Out of curiosity, has anyone used ATV ramps as sand ladders? They are extremely robust and not very heavy.
