Added VDO temp sensor to LT77 drain plug.

Note: If you want to drill through and tap the drain plug, you must remove the magnetic bar in the plug. It looks like the magnetic bar is machined of the same material of the plug, but it is not. It is a separate metal bar that is either epoxied or brazed into the plug. To drill, you must remove the magnetic bar first by heating the plug and bar until the magnetic bar can be pulled out with a pliers.

Added VDO boost sensor to the 200tdi intake charge piping via welded 1/8" NPT bung. Easiest place to add the tap for boost after the intercooler without having to modify the intake manifold (which I did not want to do.)

Put together fittings for VDO oil pressure sender. Note that I am replacing the m10x1.0 200tdi oil pressure sensor with a 1/8" NPT Sensor from Wells, PN #117. These go in via brass tee to the oil filter housing on the 200tdi.

In the process of pulling the exhaust manifold / turbo to install the EGT probe.

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.

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.
