    looking for coil springs. Not sure if the ones I have on my 110 are the issue with body roll etc so I want to find a good set of used ones, firm hopefully and see if they make a difference.

    Does anyone make an aftermarket HD suspension kit or parts for the LR 4 yet? I’m asking for a friend who is using it for rally racing. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    I have had a coil fail and was wondering if anyone knew of a suitable replacement available at places like Advance, AutoZone, or OReilleys. Thanks!

    I've been trying to troubleshoot an "engine-stumble-under-load" issue. One of the threads here suggested the coil may be the problem. I want to bench test the two coils I have to see if they are within spec. The first is a Bosch that was on the truck when I bought it. The second is a Lucas...

    Hi folks, soliciting input to check my debugging process. I'm in the process of adding intermittent wipers to my '88 110. I've bought the intermittent wiper arm, harness, and programmable relay, and got it all wired up. The problem I'm experiencing is that, when in the intermittent wiper...

    "Our fun old vehicles have spark plug wires that go bad over time, but our new daily drivers have no spark plug wires and their ignition systems are maintenance free." True or False? "Half-True" is the right answer! Most newer engines do not have spark plug wires, but they do have Spark Plug...

    I was re-fitting the exhaust manifold and the stud backed out. It looks like the exhaust manifold stud sheared at one point, a helicoil was used to repair it and then the broken stud was reused. Attached photos of the hole, not great but it doesn't look like there is a sheared stud in there...

    Hi all. So I recently swapped out the distributor on the 94 D90 NAS. Went with a Mallory. I also got the other stuff that Mallory recommended for it including the ignition coil. It ran awesome for 2-3 weekend. Strong. Then out of nowhere it stalled and wouldn't restart. No spark coming...

    Started life as a 1965 Series iia that was converted to a stage one. When the frame was deemed not repairable I decided that we would convert it back to series sheet metal and go with coils while keeping the V8 automatic. I am running two heater systems, one for defrost & one for cabin. The...

    Trying to solve a no start situation & when I opened up the access panel thru the top of the fender above my coil, I noticed that it was wired into what turns out to be a " Lumenition " electronic ignition conversion, which is made available for Series & D's thru 1985. Fwiw, the outward...

    Gents, I have seen a few buildups on here using Designa coil chassis for Series vehicles. I am looking for information as to how the crossmember that supports the rear A-frame is designed on the 109 chassis. It looks like it sits within the frame instead of on top of it, due to the difference...
