  2. bigger turbo on my van... kind of a build thread

    Engine & Gearbox
    Still working on this as I have a bit of a clearance issue with the new valve setup. The followers are bottoming out on the base circle of the camshaft and holding the inlet valves open

    Engine & Gearbox
    do you find there is a lot of movement in the alternator drive....back and forth. I have seen on these engines including my own that the bronze bearing break up, the hardened gear posts also wear and on occasions the gears lose there teeth. Has the engine been apart ?
  5. 2.5 injector loom replacement.

    You can't adjust the pickup as that's in a fixed position. To adjust the timing you can use the essentric gear to adjust a small amount or itmaybe a tooth or too out. Generally you have to set up the timing mark and then tighten the camshaft nut before adjusting the gear backlash. After that you...

    Don't worry I've moved the thread to the T5 section as some of the T4 boys get rather upset with a T5 in there section. They've never made mistakes....When you say noise is it from the top or bottom?
  7. 2.5 injector loom replacement.

    Engine & Gearbox
    You need to remove that bridge as the plug is in two parts and you can't easily lock the plug in. You also don't need to remove the tandem pump or replace the stretch bolts as it's only there to seal the end up. I always put a drop of locktight under the bridge as it's a mating face and helps to...

    My quite week didn't happen and was full on, my van is also in bits as I'm modifing the head on my 5 pot for clearance on the new pistons so I get side tracked. I can't give too much away but I get the brackets water cut in batches as they change per linear mm with 1.5mm steel. The rest is...

  12. Head gasket

    Engine & Gearbox
    2.5's don't normally do head gaskets and it's not normal to skim that head because of the gear driven camshaft

  14. Possibilities of changing from 130 - 174?

    Engine & Gearbox
    Ah...true :) Always leave mine in gear as the hand brake is not the best with weight in the back. That's probably why I didn't need the crankshaft held but you can get a rattle gun in there.
  15. Transporter shuttle 2007 2.5 Bnz help please

    Engine & Gearbox
    yes...from 12 noon around to 9. Still sound like it's a tooth out, if it's a bit out it will run but not properly as it may lose power or it will bring up a cam/crank error on vcds
  16. Transporter shuttle 2007 2.5 Bnz help please

    Engine & Gearbox
    Your supposed to bring the mark on the eccentric gear to 12 noon and then put the camshaft gear in. It sounds like you have the gear a tooth out before you start and it's running out of adjustment.
  17. Transporter shuttle 2007 2.5 Bnz help please

    Engine & Gearbox
    Have you adjusted the eccentric gear below the camshaft gear? The gear should be altered to bring the mark on the cam gear in line with the top of the head before doing the bacl lash and tightening of the cam bolt to the lower torque setting
  18. Coolant loss - possible causes?

    Engine & Gearbox
    It's going to be a new head gasket with askim of the head....seems quite a common fault on the 1.9pd.
  19. 2.5 BNZ engine cut out tonight

    Engine & Gearbox
    You are assuming it's the lift pump but you haven't tested pressure or flow? How do you know that the tandem pump is suppling fuel at the correct rate for the injectors? The lift pump is exactly what it is a lift pump which is priming pump for a few seconds before start. It doesn't run all the...

    Engine & Gearbox
    I've just done my timing again today as I've fitted my new overhauled head after the valve guides were worn and the valve seats were re cut :). Can't see how the timing can be so far out unless the instructions weren't followed or it's a cheap timing tool.
