  1. split boost diaphragm in the injector pump? quick and easy to check
  2. Not a Land Rover but it is a 4x4 with a 6 litre V8 diesel...I am so tempted to keep hitting the bid button on this! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-F-250-LARIAT/333268391896?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3D03a04a58666046939502428cfaa894a2%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D15%26mehot%3Dpp%26sd%3D333268391896%26itm%3D333268391896%26pg%3D2481888&_trksid=p2481888.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3A6eb0066b-ac58-11e9-b92e-74dbd180a9cd|parentrq%3A18bd1c6216c0abc665b19e14ff4ce179|iid%3A1
  3. I have already bought some paint to tidy it up
  4. I sent the head off to be pressure checked for piece of mind (£40) and had it skimmed (£30). All came back good and a through inspection of the liners/bores show no problems other than a bit of a lip at the top which is acceptable. Few pictures of it being cleaned up and going back together
  5. you can use either a 3/8 ratchet or 22mm socket with them You don't need exact sizes. I just chose the smallest one I think I will be able to hammer on!! I had 3 bolts do this on a Jag gearbox and got all out with the Irwin set Only problem I have head is the stud/bolt then shearing off flush with whatever it is mounted in. In that case you are still no worse off as you can then drill it out
  6. These are the Irwin ones - tis is the base set and then you can buy another 5 which fit in the same case https://www.amazon.co.uk/Irwin-Bolt-Grip-Remover-394001/dp/B0000CCXVZ/ref=asc_df_B0000CCXVZ/?tag=bingshoppinga-21&linkCode=df0&hvadid={creative}&hvpos={adposition}&hvnetw=o&hvrand={random}&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=e&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl={devicemodel}&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=&hvtargid=pla-4583932700704927&psc=1 I have used mine loads
  7. I have succeeded using those Irwin stud grip sockets in that exact situation, normally helps to heat the casing up too
  8. I think he knew there was a bit of a leak but had not realised how bad/that all the water had run out. That's a fair point and I can easily check closely now the head is off - they are liners so cracking is possible
  9. Agreed - that is the only thing that looks possible. I didn't want to put words in peoples mouths though! I think it would be sensible to get the head pressure tested as well as skimmed
  10. Well i must say 1960's Fordsons are easier to work on than TDV8 Range Rovers! Head off easily in less than an hour and a half. Its a copper gasket so its not so easy to spot if it has blown. On the plus side all three bores look good with no scoring. Pictures.... What do people think?
  11. given the low cost and ease of changing I may just swap it then!
  12. No it does not seem to smell, I have been laying next to the tractor smelling it like a weirdo all weekend!! What I am confused about is why are my compression test numbers decent with this much blowby? They are excellent little engines though - We also have 2 Massey 135's with the later direct injection version of this engine and they never cause any problems and start in any temperature with no heat
  13. I think head off has to be the next thing to do - why would I be getting steam from the breather though?
