I apologise if this has been covered numerous times, but I could only find threads where it is already causing problems and I am not used to engines with electrics.
A friend of mine has just bought a very early TD5 90 fter being jealous of my 110 and already has the land rover bug. The chassis on it is sound and in good condition and no rust that we have found yet, and everything else seems to be working as it should. However, as seems to be a common problem with the td5, there is oil in ecu plugs. It has been cleaned out, and will continue to be cleaned until the amount of oil in there reduces. Is the oil in the wiring loom a big problem?
At the moment it is not causing any problems with the running of the engine. Are there any common signs to look out for if it is starting to effect the running of the engine?
Is there any way to reduce/stop the oil ingress down the wiring loom, short of replacing the whole loom?
