Do coils go bad? I had it replaced because I am pretty sure it was the original coil.
Yes, they can go bad. I replace mine due to leaking.

$170 for a coil? Just get one of Idaho's finest for 99 cents: http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...uck-67714.html

A little mud therapy, assistance from Mother Nature and nice downpour to rinse away most of the evidence.

Fitted a gently used power tank mount and got tank filled. First time messing with co2, impressed.

Oh and adjusted valves but nothing purty about that. Did learn something new. You can jack up one front tire, put in 5th gear, and spin that wheel by hand watching the motor turn over. Very easy, rule of 9.

Pulled the Action Alt, and had it tested today.. it failed.. So its being shipped back for warranty work hopefully.

Bought a "spare" primary whatever from O'rielly which i'll install tomorrow so i can drive it..

This is Alt #2 failure in ~3 months.. Original OEM one seized, The Aciton Alt one, intermittently had the Tach die, and the battery light come on, today it became permanent.

- Its a monday for sure, house furnace also went out..

time to look at a grown up Daily Driver, so I can have time to play with the defender.

WTF! Seriously the Action failed? They'll definitely warranty it, that sucker is only like 3 months old if that! Didn't we install it at URE?

Love "grown up daily driver". I bounce between a 110 and 109 based off what is running best. Wife tell me I need to be more of an adult.

I've had horrible experience with aftermarket alternators at the dealership. I would install a used one before a new reman.

we'll see on the O'Riley's autoparts one, hopefully my action will come back whole and i can switch back to it and use the new one as a working spare.

it's plus is the warranty and the i get it tomorrow factor.. otherwise i'm ride-less (unless you count the 356.. which if it were summer i would use.)

I've had a small Rover shop tell me the same thing. Years, maybe 6-7, I needed to replace mine so we put a used D1 in and it's been fine. $35.
