If using automotive ramps run both passenger (right side) wheels up onto the ramps, this will place the oil drain plug down and make it easier to grease both prop shafts.

Default tres amis plus

Finally got to a scanner that reads it all and puts results in words nearly Californio. AFR/M 02177 AFR/M 02188 pcm may be suspect or clean MAF. Ok, that can't hurt. Nailed it down to (mech and self amazed it runs) max fuel pressure at rail 20psi when running smooth, 10 when running ragged. There is too much gas going back to tank (check valve?) and/or all caused by not enough 'oomph' from pump or plugged filter. Buddy has pristine pumped (didn't know you could) 69 Shelby GT500, mmmm bebe. He also has made superb birch steering wheel for it and could be coerced into more.

Have read posts by Mike, SavannahBuzz and couple others but can't quite decipher any common point. Did have outside air showing at -21F when +/- 80F. Plan from this point is clean MAF, new filter and test. If NO then get decent pump for assy and dive into tank. Any thoughts or missed stuff greatly appreciated. Thanks, Peace and happy Independence w/e.

Default Disco 1 or 2?

1998 4.0 (says so on top) with V8i emblem/decal in back. When searching with V8i as word results point to 3.9 engine. Some days it is better to stay in bed, some it is not. Jest a thought.
