minor victories! 4 beru, 3 chinesium, 1 autolite. none broken, distorted, or put up a fight of any kind. why? because I purchased proper tools just incase.

I started putting O2 antisieze on my glow plugs on the TDI. Seems to be helping.

Diesels are always filthy. Always. You can scrub it clean, put new seals all the way around, and locktite everything.

It will leak. Somewhere. Somehow. And it will be black oil as soon as you've changed it.

Really gotta buy a truck, and it really has to be a diesel.

Is there an aftermarket oil cooler? Or can you rig one up?

the only fiddly/fragile piece is the injection pump. everything else is just big dumb iron.

Isn't that just a mechanical/electric throttle rotary?

I'd kill for an IDI truck, but right now, I'm on the hunt for an Audi AEL TDI motor.

BTW! just about 8 days from owning this thing for a year. put about 8,000mi on it and yet to swap an engine. what a change from loving rovers man.

Because you have a distinct lack of Oil pressure primed Injectors like the 6.0hno

btdt shut your whore mouth.

VE Injector Pumps for the win. I like keeping my oil and my fuel separate by more degrees than a poorly made copper washer.

Rolled 10k mi on it finally. Oil changed. Bus is sold to another goon. I'm delivering the drz to LA this weekend. Rear bushings are next and this guy is going up for sale.

Be glad you can't smell this fluid. It's two years old and . cleaned out the housing and filled it with fresh. I love being able to work on this piece of poo poo without resorting to laying on my back.


Welcome to CSB's, home of the CursedShitBox, would you like to try a rear end meal?

I still think you need a red/blue color changing backlight so it can go red if it exceeds recommended EGTs
