    Out of curiosity, Why did Land Rover design this loop de loop in the fuel line from the lift pump to the filter and injection pump? My only guess is that it is some sort of counter-current mechanism for some preheating of fuel. Thoughts? Cwolfe

    Got some inquiries on the subject so it seems pertinent to post a parts list with an installation post to follow.
