KiloWatts I thought about those Stillen brakes, but whew, pricey. I might try some higher quality brakes first like the Hawk HPS some people have suggested here. I don't even know what my current brakes are but they're noisy af.

OD off- button is your friend. On steeper slow-speed downhills you can go 2nd gear which will give you pretty good compression braking. Did that when driving in the mountain areas in Norway a few years ago, had absolutely zero issues.

KiloWatts Flushed my power steering a 2nd time, the right way this time (jacked up, and without starting engine), and with the right fluid. Clean as a whistle now and no air bubbles.

JackiesDad I just finished up replacing all the power door locks. Only the lift gate left. Ordered the parts for that one today.

Nice, I should probably do the same.

Zilliver Canīt find a good priced carrier, so I can put a locker in my D44a, so I got new LSD kit:



Hopefully I can find some time before snow, to get them in

Thank you Kolak again, for the part numbers and all

BRBauer2 Old girl has been stalling and not wanting to start more frequently. I think I've ruled out plugs, wires, etc.

Checked pressure at the fuel rail test port and had ZERO fuel spray. Few cycles of the key and had some pressure. Need to get a gauge on there to see what the PSI actually is.

Injectors look original but all feel/sound like they are firing correctly. Had the fuel pump replaced under recall in April.

What steps should I take to finding where the pressure loss is? Would the pressure regulator be replaced with the fuel pump?

Not coming off of TB, it's coming into the TB. It's for the evap system, that hose leads to the evap purge solenoid located on the drivers' side fender wall next to airbox. It's described in the emission control systems section of the FSM.

Speaking of the adjustment sleeve. I put a 3.5 lift in and needed this to re-center the steering wheel. I now only have about 1" of thread left in the sleeve on each side. Is this OK???
