Started smelling way too much diesel perfume in the cabin and was treated to this rover track when I parked at home:



Seems all four banjo bolts on the return line were in varying stages of looseness. :facepalm

Tightened them down and for now, problem solved. Will know more after driving it more than just to the cul-de-sac and back.

Installed a Rockware bumper and a Rigid Radiance 20" light bar. I'll order the Superwinch next week and wire it all up at the same time.

Looks great!
Did you order the bumper with the tabs specifically for that light bar?

I sent them the light so the mount was exact.

Installed my MOD bumper, skid plate, end caps, offset license plate mount & A-bar, all covered with rubberized undercoating.

Much better!

Installed new bushings in the clutch pedal and ran a .750 reamer through them. Then I replaced the pivot pin with a new one after cross drilling it and adding a grease fitting so I could lube the shaft and bushing. The old parts were so crusty that the pedal was binding so hard you couldn't move it.

Replaced the wing repeater lamps, sealed up some butchered tunnel holes left over from the po TDi conversion, and made a fuel smoke adjustment. Looked around at the other 17 rovers to decide what happens on Monday.....

proved - my fixes were not the cause for my stalling... ok on to new parts..

i'm starting to think the clutch is dragging a bit and the idle (sensors, ICV, etc) can't compensate for it
it's also, fittingly, intermittent.

all new sensors (VSS, ICV, TPS (well old but good)) its either weak spark (coil is new) or clutch drag..

i really dont want it be clutch.. since that means i'll go nuts on it and do the transmission (ashcroft replacement ) as well as the RMS which needs to be done and i've been waiting.

on the bright side my leaks have been reduced to 2.. the RMS and a slight no drip leak from the top of the steering box.. i have no drips amazingly.. and yes they are full

Installed a Ram Mount for my phone. Didn't want to drill into the dash so I drilled and tapped a piece of aluminum and sandwiched the vent.

a little more work, on the stalling issue.. swapped to my spare (new) ICV, no joy.. going to retime it tomorrow and advance it some (was set at 7 when i did it last), then try and get it up to my shop for a smoke test on the vacuum.. pretty much out of ideas
runs good, but not as strong as waveriders (Brian) - but i'm a lot heavier as well and on taller tires.. idles great - new VSS, ICV, and Ign amp.. role to a stop and it hunts or stalls.

I'm going to pull the MAF main hose tomorrow (ash's silicone one) as well and replace it with my old one (good, no holes) and see what happens, hopefully i'll get enough time to do the brake flush as well.. but i have an interview mid day so no telling.. that may wait till wens..

Do you have a way to look at the readings for the VSS? They are very sensitive and are easily damaged if dropped.
