    Newly aquired LJ70 and BJ71

I've bought them in...

    2L-T Starter on last leg (1989 LJ73)

    So unfortunately my starter is going bad and I have to order a new one, probably the solenoid. Most days it will start fine, but on cold days when it takes that just little bit of an extra crank it will crank and then it sounds like the starter disengages from the flywheel and just spins freely...

    Pre-turbo EGT probe location? and fuel injector rebuild question - 2L-T

    Hi all, Coming from the VW diesel world where there is passionate debate about the merits of pre vs. post-turbo EGT probe reliability, my usual mechanic balked at a post-turbo install (he's a friend as well).

    Builds 2L-T vs 2L-TII LJ70 Build

    I am starting a new thread to outline some of the differences between the 2L-T and the 2L-TII. My original 2L-T had 300,000 km on the clock and so I decided it was time to drop in a new engine. I saw a "2L-T" with R151F attached for sale in the next state over from a JDM Importer for 2K...
