its a new vss.. and i have a rover gauge but no fancy O-scope like jason..
also it will do it stationary so i don't think that's it - i also changed back to my old TPS (fixed the exposed wires as well) no change in symptoms.

once idled it runs great - start up (stationary) it can stall without help.. sometimes. (maybe 50%)

Replaced the fuel filler hose that connects filler neck to the tank. The original hose (19yrs old) shows multiple cracks on the outside and was essentially leaking out at said cracks. Interestingly, the inside looked OK. I guess the hoses are porous?

R&R wasn't too difficult - I (slowly) pulled the tank side of the hose out first, then use a razor blade to cut the filler neck side - just b/c the hose was stuck on the metal. On replacement, I lubricated the inner of the hose with light coating of motor oil. I put the tank side first, then bend the hose a bit to fit the filler neck. Tightened the hose clamps. Done.
Part was aftermarket manufacturer.

I recently added an overdrive and 1.4 TC to Hobbes. This Hobo Nickel knob is a work in progress.

I exchanged fluids yesterday. On the Defender that is. I started by drinking an IPA while talking the tools out. Then I changed the engine oil and oil filter. Then I had two margaritas. After that I was ready to tackle the gearbox oil change. I always generously apply anti-seize on the gearbox plugs. The gearbox drain plug can be a real challenge. After I had buttoned up the gearbox I realized that I left off the brass washer for the gearbox drain. I had removed it from the plug while cleaning it. I blame the margaritas. Then I changed the transfer case fluid. Today I'm changing the front and rear differential fluids and the fuel filter. I may also clean the sedimenter.

Installed a Blue Sea 6 fuse panel, MUDUK lower console with a USB and 12v outlet and a dual band ham radio this morning. I'm pretty much sick of wires, wiring and running wires. MUDUK center console, switches, and radio is next.

Removed and replaced the oil cooler lines over the weekend, and wrote up a DIY for it.

Added a vector off road Exorack to the spare tire. This allows for rotopax gas fans to be mounted (up to 4, 2 gallon cans) Had to oblong one hole a smidge but it fits fine and its solid.. Cheap solution to carry up to 8 gallons of gas on the tire carrier or an axe/pull pal/ whatever Now I need to get some rotopax cans

Just finished to install my wide radiator from Allisports. all I have to say is that it keeps the temps low. What happened is last year I installed a full width intercooler on my 300 Tdi and since then the temperature was always high on the highway cruising around 120Km/h. Now the temp stays at 180 Fahrenheit even when pushing on the highway. Real good purchase. I had to modify the the frame that hold the radiator but nothing complicated. If you have a 300 Tdi that run a little hot their rad is the solution.

Wired up the winch today. Zip ties have to be one of the greatest inventions ever. Do you guys think the driveshaft needs to be painted?

I also installed the stereo and the MudUK center console. I did NOT cut the dash and plan on installing a Carling switch bank below the radio in a few weeks. I'm pretty burnt out on electrical projects.

Hey Dave , am I seeing things correctly??? Looks like your winch wiring is tie-wrapped to your drive shaft & exhaust as well???

That shouldn't affect functionality of the winch. As long as he's not moving

Good try, but most can see right thru that you've plumb yourself an anti-theft, automatic fuel cut off and not a winch. Wthout disabling this contraption first, the would be theives would move the truck, which the drive shaft will yank the fuel hose, disabling the car immediately.
Smart!
