Turbo and intake manifold hadn't given me any issues since the actuator replacement at 160k miles. The actuator was replaced with the cheap Amazon option. I replaced the kidney bean with the CAT hose some time ago.



I pulled 5 of the 6 injectors, and they are in good working condition. 1 of the 5 is a refurbished unit from Rock Auto, with very little time on it at all. The 6th injector is still in the block, and has a bit of black death holding it in - I haven't pulled that one yet as my can of kroil was empty at the time that I was pulling the others. Had planned to put those on fleaBay, but never got around to it. I also have the set of bolts, seals, and O-rings that I bought to fix the black death issue...



Glow plug module/glow plugs were also working as expected, and that's a pretty good endorsement given that the jeep died in December in Minnesota. The glow plugs were also replaced at 160k miles, and the odo is currently at 215k. I've always thought of those as a 100k part, so still some life left in them.

If they can, let me know. I'd love to take that off your hands.

Yeah, the controls are still there. I’ll need to look at how to get them out intact... I’ve never done that on any vehicle.

The 07 controls came out easily enough.

Remove the airbag.

There are metal wire retaining clips for the tiny harness.

A small flathead can pop the tiny retaining tabs for the controls.
