Lots of cleanup

Not just today but over the past three months I've been cleaning up a frankenstein installation of a 2.8 TGV that I bought. Almost all new and proper coolant and intercooler hoses and pipes, correct intercooler and radiator, correct air filter assy, correct air intake hoses and associated parts, correct fuel filter assembly, correct coolant reservoir, removed a dead Ramsey winch and painted the original bumper, painted the bush bar, added a set of carling switches and a mini mud pod to clean up the bastardized installation of the ARB compressor, lockers, electric fan which was never hooked up, and the driving lights.

Oh, also added some backing strength to the soft top by the doors to stop the draft from coming in. Used a piece of angle iron bolted to the side panel above the door latch and some 3/4 round steel mashed flat at both ends bolted to the angle iron and the soft top brace. Works like a charm and cheap. Just need to paint it.

Grill and light surrounds painted and new turn signals in the bumper.

So much of this installation was utilizing the original V8 parts and a cracked oversized intercooler.

Absolutely - and you don't have excess sealer squeeze out collecting on the oil pump pickup screen. I tried the hylomar method and it leaked worse than before I took the pan off the first time. When I pulled the pan to install the gasket the excess hylomar was clogging almost half the pickup screen.I got a real gasket here:

Brought this home in the 110. 200Tdi complete with everything to drop into a Defender. Almost a shame to be putting it into my Series 3.

re-vitalized the trailer hitch

It was the first of many projects on the recently acquired old girl. Went at it with a drill mounter wire disc, and a wire brush. Sanded, wiped with thinner then painted it.

So much more to do...but as the old saying goes the longest journey...

The photo is of the newly painted trailer hitch in the vines. Preparing a burn pile from the pruned vines and yard cleanup.

Finally got around to removing the old MOD battery box and rifle mounts. Surprised at how heavy that box was. The pup likes his new view.

This week I am installing a new clutch slate to my truck. I'm also looking into changing my electric fans.

Sorry, but the right stuff is par superior to the gasket, especially the cork one.... And I have used the right stuff on HUNDREDS of builds and never seen it release to the pickup...that stuff sticks like nothing I've ever seen...really is great..

Poor quality RTV will come apart and end up in the pick up tube, but not Right Stuff. An oil pan is not really something I would use Hylomar on.

thanks, I like it too. it looks very similar to my safari gard rear tank skid. install wasn't bad. it needed a couple longer bolts and a makeshift spacer but the was a breeze compared to dealing with an eff'n stubborn seized bolt.

Dropped it off at my BDR for further investigation into persistent misfiring when it works and failure to start when it doesn't.
