    Diagnose knock in 2LTE

    I wrote a couple of weeks ago that I was looking at an engine swap because I thought I might have dropped a lock washer into the air intake on my LJ78. When I put it back together and started it, after about 60 seconds it started a loud knock. I am just guessing about the washer. My mechanic has...

    2LTE Air Intake Part Needed

    The rubber is rotted out and broken on my air intake hose. This is the piece that connects to the turbo intake, and has nipples on it for the crankcase breather, etc. It was held together with some electrical tape by the lovely previous owner, and that all came apart obviously.

    Pre Turbo Exhaust Leak after EGR Delete

    I'm a fat old man who used to do this stuff, but now I'm smart enough to take advantage of the fact that one of my staff has a college age gear head son. So I've been having him do some stuff on El Troque, my 1990 LJ78. He did an EGR delete this week and when I went to drive it I could tell the...
