Drove to Sac to check on the progress of my disco. Still not running. Apparently there's a few issues with the 95 year. Having a smaller keyway on the crank shaft from a 94 4.2 doesn't quite make life easy.

Also planning to upgrade the timing chain with double rollers. Thought about doing a cam but looking at work vs cost vs power.... I'll skip that part and just do the double rollers.

You may need to take a welding torch to the back side of your mechanic to get him moving a little faster!

Only small things today on the LR3.

 

Found a bent pin in the front brake wear connector causing a false reading and straightened it out.

Tightened a couple of loose bolts on the driver's side exhaust manifold that were causing an annoying leak.  NOT the easiest things to get to!

Removed the RoadShower - need to have a crack welded up

Removed the roof rack mounts for the (now busted) traction jacks.

Tested highway driving at stock road height with the 33" tires - OK but will rub slightly at just the right amount of steering input.  Should be fine for highway driving and may give a bit more mpg due to less airflow under the rig.

Almost a year... but you see Don, my wife does not see the benefits the way Michelle does. See my reply to Jason :(

But honey, we need to sell these 35" tires now while they've still got lots of tread so we can get the best return on them.

 

 

That'll work, right?

Today i cut my maxtrax holder apart and re-made it to fit the bigger spare tire.  also beefed up the swing away stop and the side steps on the rear bumper.  bought more dielectric grease to seal my coil connections.

Are your 35s 17 or 16 inches?  I might have a buyer for you...

Yes that's strange because I did choose Nick's message where he mentioned divorce if he did change the tires again. Must have been a weird glitch or something.

Anyway Nick depending on the size of your 35s I probably have a buyer if you're looking to go to 37s.
