if the gauge jumps when you hit a bump that sounds like a poor ground to the temp gauge-simple fix

On your small radiator leak. Just recently had one on my radiator. Turned out one of the black zip ties holding the electric fan in place had cut through one of the little fins(I think this is what you would call it) on the radiator. It was causing a slow leak over time. Mechanic fab'd up a bracket guy to hold it in place. Might be worth looking into. He had said it was the first time he'd ever seen it happen but wasn't surprised that it had seeing as zip ties suck and he hates that they are what is supplied as mounting hardware with electric fans.

Anyway, good luck on the sale. The price is pretty solid. You can get a tdi 90 with a solid frame for about $6k. Add shipping and you're up to $7k-8k range. Add a paint job and you'll be closer to this. Then you'll have to add a radio. Perhaps new interior. Basically this is a good deal.

Hey all,
Thanks for all the feed back on the truck. I know that most of the outstanding issues with this truck are not huge and most are pretty simple fixes. That's why I feel it's a solid truck at a reasonable price. I wouldn't hesitate to take it anywhere, but I'm very mindful of the issues on my list. I have many interested parties and it looks like this will be licked in the next day or so. Thanks again!

-Frank

Thanks for the bump Doug! No, the truck hasn't sold yet. Haven't even had a single person come and look at it. If anyone's interested hit me up.

I am no mechanic by any means, but I will be in Scranton all weekend if anyone wants MY honest opinion on this 90-
just thought I'd throw it out there.
Frank, are you around this weekend? I live in La Plume for most of the summer.
cheers Gents

Yup,

Is a 300tdi disco engine (in a Defender) easier to Convert to LHD than a 200tdi Disco engine (In a Defender)?

I was planning on waiting till after my wedding to revive this thread, but I had a few requests for some more pics so I figured I'd throw them up now. Pics show all areas for concern / rust. I tapped at all the spots when I took the pics and it's all surface stuff, nothing chewed through. The truck is also pretty dirty right now and I'm planning on washing / waxing as soon as I can, but I'm getting married in a few days. Will post pics when she's all cleaned up. Truck is still for sale. Any questions just hit me up.

I read through your sale post and the thread where you bought the RRC and this is the Defender you're looking for. If you're really driving the boat down the coast, why not stop by here and pick this truck up and use it to trailer the RRC home ? As sharp as that RRC is, I've got another Tdi in my sights.
