I did a lot of modifications. I do have a lot more power than I did with the 2.5td. The Garret 3" Intercooler and the 2" piping seems to provide a great deal of hp. I can't wait to try out my Boost Pin.

Action 149amp alternator back from warranty (new one...)
Stuck brush in brush holder was the diagnosis..

I'll switch it back in a little while, the 100amp seems to be fine.

No cost other than shipping there

Received my timing cover I got on ebay on Thursday, finally finished getting everything back together early this afternoon. I cracked the lower oil cooler line housing last weekend after I replaced the oil pressure relief valve o-ring with the timing cover still bolted in place. I had to unbolt the oil cooler lines where they bolt to the timing cover last weekend to access the oil pressure relief valve circlip and assembly.
I transferred the oil pump gears out of my original timing cover over to the ebay cover and used my oil pump housing plate because it was not as scored as the one original to the ebay timing cover. I had already replaced my oil pump gears with a new set so they were still in very good condition.
I also transferred over the o-ring off my original oil pressure relief valve and my oil pressure switch to the new unit which were in good shape. The o-rings on the ebay unit's oil pressure relief valve and oil pressure switch were both hardened and probably leaking. I replaced the front main seal. I inspected the oil pump gears with a feeler gauge and straight edge when the timing cover was off as well.
When I started the engine I tested the oil pressure which turned out to be pretty good at 42psi operating temp and 2400rpm. The LR workshop manual recommends between 30-40 psi.

Nephew helped me install a steering guard.



$439 from RN, bought a used one (new, never installed) from eBay.co.uk & paid seventy quid for it, with $30 shipping.

Painted it with Rustoleum bed liner.

Result!

Unsuccessfully tried to reverse bleed the clutch, oh well. Found out I bought the wrong binnacle, oh well. BUT successfully installed LED dash lights, a VDO tach, got rid of the clock, and moved everything over. Jackpot!

Here's a GIF for your viewing pleasure (if that works on here).

Almost finished installing insulation in the roof and side panels.

Actually looks allot better than I thought it was going to.

Installed X-Trouser

Day off from work, recovering from watching the Broncos. Living in Germany it ended at 0430. Installed the X- Trouser. I had to steal a shim from the other door to get it to work. The photo is from the old one. I forgot to take the new one.

1/2 Closed cell foam from a local manufacturer, wrapped in trunk liner and glued together and to the body panels with 3M spray 90, took some time but am very pleased with the results.

Now just need to seal up all the holes around the doors and some of the ehat might actually stay inside the vehicle.

That looks awesome. How did you run all 4 of the cables into the cab? BD uses some stout cables.

Oar those the sport or the XL sport version?

I'm guessing you're not disappointed with the output and beam pattern.
