  1. dew1911 WAS me, but it was a long time ago now, a lot of water under the bridge since then.

    I know who this is, and his only reason here is to cause trouble for me. Should really be banned now before he has a chance to make yet another ass of himself.

    OK :i-m_so_happy:

    as for the other person, my secret spies :ph34r: :ninja: will be deployed :i-m_so_happy:

  2. It'll be a complete window out job, remove the rubber filler strip & drill out all the rivets, then carefully remove the window assembly, to remove the centre vertical seal strip, there's a screw at each end,you'll see it in the frame edge,

    there's a seal MUC1008 between the window frame & body panel, the vertical seal strip MWC7614 & the felt strip MUC3096, any or all of these could let water into the rear interior, obviously the vehicle will need 2 of each, plus lots of rivets to refit the assemblies

  3. :blink:

    A good uprated intercooler will undoubtedly make the vehicle faster, even without tweaking the pump. This is because the cooler air is more dense as as such more oxygen rich, allowing the fuel to be burnt more completely.

    I you "tweak" the pump without uprating the intercooler, the exhaust gas temperature (EGT) will rise and can cause damage to the engine.

    I bow to your knowledge :i-m_so_happy:

  4. Ralph,

    Do you find the O/D a great advantage with the Tdi?

    Did you change the transfer box / high range gears when you junked the 19J?

    Cheers,

    OD makes long journey's quieter, it drop the revs by about 600 at 60mph, transfer gears are exactly as per the old 19J engine, no change from a factory built 200Tdi, main gearbox has same ratio's too.

  5. Thanks Western, but with a warning like "I MAKE NO GUARANTEES THAT THE ADJUSTMENTS ARE SAFE FOR YOUR ENGINE – IF YOU DO THESE ADJUSTMENTS THEY ARE DONE AT YOUR OWN RISK. READ ALL OF THE INFORMATION BELOW BEFORE YOU START !

    Remember - this will void any remaining warranty"

    There must be some risk to the engine. Surely a high miler wouldn't take to kindly to a whole lot more umpgh?

    Paul

    Depends how confident you feel, most if not all 200/300Tdi engines will be out of LR warranty period now, I still run my 200 at normal settings, the pumps been rebuilt but not had any tweaks done to it.

  6. Refer to my diagram in from this thread

    No connection[at terminal 1, nearest steering wheel]

    Brown [batt 12v feed to terminal 2 @ 12o'clock position]

    White [to terminal 3]

    White/Red [to terminal 4]

    White/black [to terminal 5]

    White/orange [not connected as it becomes live -- for accessory/air conditioning-- when ignition switch to position 2 glowplug/pre spring loaded start section of switch]

    Note -- above info only for a ex-2.5TD engined vehicle that's been converted to a 200Tdi engine. But might be useful for 2.5n/a to 200Tdi if you fit the glowplug timer relay & associated wiring.

    hope that helps, :i-m_so_happy:

  7. There must be some somewhere as the works firewall blocks me now...never used to, it means I have to work at work..... :blink:

    Still lets me on to ORRP and others though :o

    probably because the word 'porn' is in some of the replies, just blame Les H, he started all this porn thing.
