Rover arrival

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

So, the Rover arrived last month. Unfortunately, school and work, as well as my own innate laziness, have prevented me from sharing the joyful news. I guess I just needed to be in full paper-avoidance mode to get around to updating this. Anyway, the work has begun!

List of repairs done so far:

New tires (old ones didn't match the truck, or each other.)
New tie rod ends and rear tie rod tube
New washer jets, non-return valves, and hoses for windshield washer
Removed and cleaned windshield washer fluid reservoir (ick)
New battery
New starter
New oil cooler lines
Lots of new bulbs
Fixed rear wiper (which I promptly broke again(loose connection somewhere(parenthetical!)))
New ECM fixed cruise control and remote keyless
Rerouted hose for coolant reservoir (was intruding into battery tray)
Added battery hold down which was missing (!!!)
Adjusted steering stops to accomodate larger tires (almost finished with this)

Next on the list:
New struts for tailgate
Replace leaking coolant reservoir
Full fluid flush (steering, diffs, oil, coolant, etc)

New Rovertym springs
Rovertym 2" body lift

Good times.
