Since I have a 3" Intercooler it blocked air from going through the radiator. Even with to 2 electric fans, air seemed to be diverted around, over, and under the radiator. The funnel allows air to go through the grille and forces it through the Intercooler and the radiator.

I have a similar setup with a 3" allsport...did you see a HP improvement removing the mech fan and switching to electric...

Power steering hoses replaced (farmed that job out)
D90tops hard top off to paint with brewie, and soft top back on.

Picked up base camp trailer - hooptie
It's an m101a1 with a contractor topper...
Probably going to paint it and add some glamping stuff to it, but first up is a power system for it so I can throw the fridge in there for events..

Still looking at light bars... Dunno may just go a crew cheapie setup since I have a hard time shelling out $1,200 for a little extra lumens and a nicer built light.. When I can get 10k lumens/each for $125.00

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.

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.
