    LR3 Curious

    Engine for an LR3? I would go V8. More common, plus power is better and the V6 fuel efficiency isn't that much better, especially when you consider the power compensation needed.

    D1 1997 - No Start/Crank/Click

    Yes, it is smaller. no, didn’t need an extension for the top bolt, but I have skinny arms and was able to reach it from the side with the wheel removed. it was easy to install, except I had to bend the lead wire flat (from 90°) and make a short extension wire for the sampler spaded wire. I...
