    Discovery 2: Re: TD5 Head Gasket Again?

    When they redo the head they skim the "bottom" only, are you referring to the cam carrier, which sits on top of the head, at the other end from the "bottom"

    I read an installation manual today where it is recommended that when first connecting a battery to an inverter, one uses an inline 100ohm resistor to "pre-charge the capacitors"
