True,true, I hated myself for not having them ready.

Yes,I have it that way and it did help avoid cognitive breakdowns.

Default happy ending quickie update

Red Brick starts beautifully then idles perfectly right after start-up, any weather.

Look what I found. 2 factory sealed original Volvo diesel filters... I thought it`s a cool thing to have `cause I`ve never seen it before. Seller also added a `Volvo oem diesel` oil filter so I`m excited to see what he meant. These may be NOS parts by now. Anyone remembers?

Good news because I only used the grey stuff before and I`ve read quite a lot of people talking nasty things about using copper based antiseize. (on glow plugs in aluminum heads)

I won`t let them stay in there for another three years, that`s for sure.
By the way, I should probably blame the white 911 octane booster a little...but hey , at least now I have all new Bosch Duraterms in!
