A little side to side movement is normal, but there should be no fore and aft play. Grem Dborg01, The fuel lift pump on my 200Tdi Defender died while I was in Tanzania in 2002. What most people think of as a 'classic' head gasket failure - overheating, pressure building up in the cooling system - is not all that common, and quite likely to be the result of a failure elsewhere in the cooling system causing the engine to overheat and warp the cylinder head. I am tempted to get a used 'temporary' pump and have a go at rebuilding mine. The character after the body type shows the type of engine, e.
Are you sure it's not out by a tooth or something, on top of that the bad adjustment on the pulley so its more like 2? Getting you what you need, efficiently and effectively - it's what we do. Daniel I put an earlier thread on here regarding servicing the injector pump to our 300 Tdi. List of faults covered below: Displaced camshaft bearings This is the killer. Even if you leave the base plate in place it will be fine. Spraying white grease into the bearing may temporarily cure the problem.
The only thing that is attached to the block is the fuel cooler. The diaphragm in the actuator can split, as can the pipes that run from there to the injection pump, resulting in a loss of power as the injection pump is no longer able to increase fuelling in response to turbo boost. This is a highly likely area since you posted the saying : i can hear a buzzing noise or really fast ticking which seems to be coming from the injection pump when the ignition is switched on +the engine not running. Hakuna, I can't have the pump rebuilt either. They can be an absolute pig to unbolt though. I mean, can I stick a disco pump on my defender using same throttle linkage and ignore the Egr throttle position sensor potentiometer? One includes a new timing case, and a redesigned tensioner, idler and crank pulley. With the 300tdi you fine adjust by moving the pulley as you have found unlike earlier engines where you moved the pump.
I was told it's got around 120K on it. The 300 head seems less strong that the 200. The resulting development project coded Romulus produced the 300Tdi engine. Throttle linkage hooked up the same, same setting just a slight different looking arm. You need to turn the wheel clockwise to screw it down, use a flat blade screw driver and adjust until you have 4mm less rise, you can use a steel ruler to measure this. Engine offerings Many of you reading this will know what you are looking for, though some may not.
The only way to be sure is to remove the timing cover and have a look inside. All I could get was a 300Tdi pump. The other consists of just the tensioner, idler and pulley. I have had many, I stopped counting at 50 some good and some sheds. I use a large old screw driver with a slot ground in the end to release the stuck waste gate valve, this fits over the actuator rod to stop it slipping off. Now you can see the diaphragm, you will see that the diaphragm sits about 7mm away from the housing, it is this gap that needs adjusting, about 3mm is needed. Slacken the 3 keeper plate retaining bolts.
So as for old leaking pump - having two pumps gives me the luxury of having the option to get one rebuilt if needed whilst keeping the truck running during the week misses need it running for work! We simply don't list part 's that we can buy - we stock them. If the damage to the keyways is only very slight you may get away with new keys and pulleys and plenty of Loctite, but I have seen a few engines where there is not enough left of the keyway to hold the key in position, and that means a new crankshaft. At the moment there are still enough good used heads around to meet demand, but I suspect that before long people will have to start looking at having cracked heads welded up. On the 300 the half-moon seals were deleted, and the conical seals replaced with rubber rings on the head bolts. However, it has the same capacity and power as its predecessor and slightly worse fuel consumption, which has lead some people to downgrade to the given the option. Is the garage you have taken your Land Rover to experienced in working on Land Rovers, or is it the kind of garage that deal with all sorts of cars? All you pay is import duty and fees direct to the customs agent Tdi conversions generally involve; - unless you have a 4cylinder engine you will need to move and fabricate engine mounts on chassis-replace auto transmission with diesel one. Diesel engines injection systems are not water or dirt or air friendly.
The 300Tdi was replaced in 1998 by the 5-cylinder Td5, bringing to an end the line of Land Rover 4-cylinder engines that can be traced back to 1957. Usually by this stage the engine is running very badly due to the timing being well out, but if left long enough the key shears, valves hit pistons, clatter clatter bang and you might be looking at a new engine although more often it just bends the pushrods into strange shapes. This was attributed to poor quality supermarket diesel with inadequate lubricating properties. I believe your system runs 2 pumps if I remember correctly, a transfer in the tank to feed the main pump - and a higher pressure pump mechanically driven at the engine, with electrically fired injectors. Remove flywheel timing tool and refit blanking plug. The driving factor is that specialist recon is in the region of £500 which if that was the bill for sone crash damage on this age of vehicle it would be close to being a commercial write off.
Cracks between the valves are more serious as there is the danger that these will spread into the waterways in the head, and also that they may cause the valve seats to work loose and drop out of position. From floor mats to filters to complete engines, we carry the widest range of parts and accessories for your Land Rover you will find anywhere! We appreciate your business - buy with confidence! Do you know how I would go about resetting my 300tdi back to standard factory type settings? I hope you enjoy my blog, I look forward to hearing your comments. Caps can be replaced without having to remove the rocker shaft - just loosen the adjusting screw until there is enough room to extract the remains of the broken cap and pop in a new one. Hello from Brisbane Queensland Australia. I started my Land Rover affair when I was 17. If this happens to you, do not ignore it. I haven't seen one of these failures for a while now, but it has made me very wary of recommending the use of vegetable oil either virgin or recycled.
