TDI 200 loud knock on tickover

Recommended Posts

I've bought a new chest, Turners have them for reasonable money. 

 

But the air box? I'd be interested in that. Any photos?

Do you need a decent cover the for the chest?  I have a spare you are welcome to, along with a 200tdi air box

 

 

 

if Gazzer doesn't need the airbox , i have a good place for it (does it included the clips for mounting to the inner fender ?)

No photos but imagine the underside of a Discovery 200tdi bonnet and that black cylinder is exactly what I have a few of... including the clips

They are nice things those airboxes - seem to sit well in a series I think (if that’s a factor for you!?). I have one in my 80” and it doesn’t look out of place.

I'm wondering if this is the best route to getting the snorkel fitted. 

Can it connect to a defender pipe?

The snorkel will be exiting,  defender style, on the drivers side, RHD.

It's a defender turbo, and I'd planned on putting the air filter somewhere on the passenger side wing.

as far as i know , in a 200tdi defender the airbox is in the left front wing , and the snorkel sit's on the left hand side (in your world the passenger side )

I used a 19J filter housing mounted behind the left side of the road/intercooler assembly.  I have the intake reducer fitted to the inlet, and that connects to the snorkel and left side (200Tdi) wing duct and intake using the flexible air hose normally used on the 12J and 19J snorkels.  The top outlet of the filter housing runs straight to the turbo inlet.  The steel reducer on the filter inlet also has a port for the breather hose, so my filter catches what oil mist comes from the breather and engine runaway is a concern I don’t have to face (it also keeps the induction system spotlessly clean).  I do use a K&N filter because of the oil vapour - a standard one would become clogged and soggy and could ultimately break up, while the K&N filters better the dirtier it gets and is kept moist.  I did fit the plastic shroud from the top of a standard filter to the K&an so the worst of the oil is spun off by the vanes and ends up in the base pan of the housing for easy wiping up on services.

I think you’ll be able to see it reasonably clearly on my blog photos, if it sounds appropriate to you.

Thanks Nick, your blog is an inspiration, I must go through in detail.

Quick update. The timing has been done, new cam pulley and all. The noise has gone.

Hopefully that will be that for another decade or so.
