    Best diesel for 80

    I know my buddy, not a jeep guy by any means, bought 2 of em recently. One for a driver, and one to build. I am waiting to see how it does! He builds some wicked turbo set ups. He is in love with the 80s, but will only get one to do a diesel swap. He's been talking about it.

    Can't get a pedal, tests done just need troubleshooting help

    im not sure about doing the lspv first and last, the theory makes sense. but generally, when bleeding, start with the furthest caliper from the master. you could prolly even do lspv, RP, RD, then lspv, then move to FP,FD.
