    Head Gasket Repair Done -- Still Leaks

    Clearly that "rebuild" was junk. If they used flanged\o-ringed sleeves like most reputable people do, a crack in the cylinder wall should be a non-issue. 03-04 4.6s supposedly used the sloppiest built blocks but regardless of that any 89-2004 3.9-4.6 engine can crack if overheated bad. Try and...

    Head Gasket Repair Done -- Still Leaks

    Absolutely, the big bore V8 blocks do NOT like being overheated. The two interior cylinders on each bank (3,4,5,6) are the ones that suffer the most and if found to be steamed cleaned, it's a cracked block. https://www.amazon.com/Moroso-35500-Ceramic-Engine-Seal/dp/B000COU1TE Probably because...

    LR had to buy out their frame supplier that was going bust sometime around 2001. D1 and RRC bodies rust to pieces but their frames are pretty resilient.

    Ponder this question? 2004 Discovery 2 gets maybe 14MPG

    The M113 has much more advanced engine management, better gearing and yours probably isn’t AWD. Can’t speak for the thor engine but the older distributor engines ran extra rich. Side note: my CLS55 weighs almost as much as my old LWB and still gets 13 mpg while on the boost 24/7.

    D2 wheel bearings

    OE is 160 pounds from Paddock, shitpart is 1/3 that. eBay hub should do the job and is cheaper than all other possible options. I’ve never had a problem with bottom barrel parts either.

    DI discouraged

    I prefer not building at all lol, I have an RRC so I have to deal with the rover front end anyways. The point is that the D2 is cheaper to build and has better fit and finish. Brake job on those is also a walk in the park...
