I'm sure they are a great value to many, but I would like to manufacture my own. I'm sure they will be far from perfect, but a whole lot cheaper. Problem is I don't...

    Bypassing IRD Cooler?

    One of my Freelanders has a water leak from the IRD cooler. Is it possible to bypass this without causing any damage? I've heard to replace the cooler, the IRD needs removed but I haven't time at the moment to do this.

    2.25 Diesel Engine Water Pump Replacement
