Good to hear Ed. How does she shift?

Took 12 hours...too tired to post pics or describe in more detail.

Murphy's Law struck...I snapped the small rod on the LT230 diff lock linkage and will need to find a replacement.

Shifts great....Very nice. However...not much different than before it seized. I am going to put a few miles on it tonight to break it in and see what (if anything) needs work!

I spent 12 hours on Saturday and about 6 hours today. So a total of 18 hours to completely reassemble the truck, turn the keys and get it started.

I didn't actually DO anything today, but I'm pretty excited with what UPS brought me. Click image for larger version

Nice! Got it for $600 didn't you! Still waiting on mine from across the pond via a Source vendor.

I saw the sale on Facebook!

I would have had it last week but ups was smoking crack or something and after they tried to deliver to the wrong address, 5 miles away, they sent it from Arkansas to Tennessee before sending it back to the correct address.

This is what I read from another forum about air/gas/turbo adjustment:

If needs be, you can shorten the waste-gate actuator rod and increase the boost. You may need to remove the actuator and cut a bit off the end of the rod to allow sufficient adjustment in the sleeve portion (don‚€™t take too much off at once ‚€“ better do it in 3mm increments !). What you will find is the rod is too long to get more boost, as too much of it screws into the sleeve and bottoms out. You will have to shorten it quite a way to get more than 1 bar boost ‚€“ but this is often all you need. 200 Tdis run at 0.7 ‚€“ 0.8 bar ‚€“ you can safely increase this to 1 bar ‚€“ 300Tdi‚€™s run at 1 bar already ‚€“ best left alone!

In doing this you will find that you are actually having to pull the rod against the actuator spring to get it back onto the waste-gate ‚€“ this is quite fiddly ‚€“ use locking pliers and mind your fingers! Ensure you put the circlip back on. This means that the actuator spring is now holding the waste-gate shut, and means that more boost is required to overcome the spring before the waste-gate is opened. It won‚€™t fully open now either, so boost pressure is held at a constantly higher pressure for longer.

Now you have got all that extra nice cool air at 1 bar, you need the fuel to go with it to get the extra performance.

All Adjustments can be made without removing the pump from the engine.
Low manifold pressure (boost) fuel delivery adjustment.
See: ‚€˜Smoke Adjustment Screw‚€™ in either diagram 1 or 2
This adjustment is fairly simple and will help considerably around town at low engine speeds and low boost conditions.
There is a small cap in the centre of the ‚€˜ automatic fuel-control device‚€™ (AFC) on top of the pump (the ‚€˜appendage‚€™ that is plumbed to the intake manifold and restricts the amount of fuel injected until the manifold pressure is above atmospheric). This cap can be readily removed with two small screwdrivers and a gentle rocking motion.
Beneath the cap is a torx T-25 screw and a lock nut that holds it. The locknut is 13 mm and has a ‚€˜break-away torque‚€™ of around 100 in-lbs. Turn the T-25 screw 2 turns clockwise and tighten the locknut to 125 in-lbs. For additional fuel (and smoke) the screw may be turned farther (CW). Back it off (CCW) to reduce smoke.
NOTE: this will increase the exhaust gas temperature (EGT) by about 75 degrees F on long hills. Clean the plug with Brake Cleaner and then seal it with LocTite pipe thread sealant with teflon. Externally, it will appear original.

As well as preparing a Discovery 1 axle for a rear axle swap, I put Dynamat on the ceiling...

I did some Dynamat/ Diner Liner today:



Also mocked up bumper and brush guard and installed door checks thingies so I can not worry about by doors pinching my bulkhead anymore, Heritage style grill put on and didn't clear my condenser fans so there are 5/16 aluminum spacer behind the grill:



Headlights and bumper fog lights have 3000k film on them. Had it laying around figured I'd see how I like it.

Thanks Jimmy I was worried for a bit but I'm really liking it too.

Paul, I used 1/2" Dynaliner for the majority of the hood then I placed a little patch of Dynamat Xtreme over the turbo.

Dynamat literature says Dynaliner is suitable for under hood use. Dynamat Xtreme is rated between -65įF to +300įF so I think it will do fine. Just hedging my bet with the reflective metallic surface of the Xtreme.

I picked up a pickup cab yesterday and striped down my 110 today for the install. After removing the soft top & hoops took a ride and enjoyed our spring like weather. Then I removed the roll bar and put the cab in place. I still need the brackets that attach the base to the tub bulkhead so the top is not bolted in place.

Looks good. Are you updating the windshield wipers?
