Is the old gasket on upside down? It looks like the holes don’t line up correctly.

A bit more grubby

Clean, new gasket and plate and ready to go back in

This is a good time to replace the ignition coil, wires, and freshen up the fuel injectors. 4 of the injectors were missing the wire locks for the electrical connectors. Also cleaned everything I could get my paws on.



In with the new.

Out with the old. No noticeable damage or discoloring.

Ta Da! Getting there.

It's good to see the progress!

Just a heads up, you don't want to use Fuel Hose for the TBH Plate.
The coolant will eat that hose from the inside ( and yes I've made this mistake) providing you with your next leak.

Grab some 5/16" hose from Napa that is rated for coolant.

Or IMHO it's 5/16" Silicone Hose (and proper clamps) or nothing.
But Fuel hose = in the near future.

Good Luck!

Did you print the RAVE manual?

Thanks for the heads up. I will switch it out prior to reseating it. I tend to fumble through this and learn as I go. I’m always open to tips and lessons learned. ��

Yep. Old school shade tree, If my manual isn’t smudged with oil, blood and a tear or two, I just don’t feel like I’m doing it right. The wife gets jittery when I take my tablet out to the garage. 🙈

Not much progress on the rover this week beyond getting the right coolant lines and ordering some new O2 sensors. I’ve been preoccupied and occasionally upside down and hanging from my hips inside of these SOBs at work.

Ok, out of the APCs and back to the Rover. The throttle body is back in place and curing the rtv. The heater lines are upgraded and now I am just waiting for tomorrow to replace exhaust manifold gaskets. Hopefully that pesky coolant leak and tapping are in the past.




Oh! Look what jumped into my truck while I was at the pick a part.
