Diesel Leak


Recommended Posts

Noticed another Problem today as well as my Others diesel leaking from Wading plug hole at bottom of Timing Case, didn't know Diesel could get  through that way.  Had  new  Timing Belt and Seal not long ago but Suspect Seal, or could it be something else ?

I'm not saying the belt is ok, but they don't seem to mind oil. I have a lathe that has a belt running in the gearbox, under oil, and Honda made a small engine with the timing belt inside.

Wasn't sure to take a chance on the Belt, It was just fitted new couple of months ago with pully and oil seal  also new water pump, Has not been ran much since then, maybe 6 or 7 times Idling, and  no more then 10 minuets

Change of Plan, not going for the Tool as wont get it till next week sometime, Mates gonna take cover and belt off to get at it properly, so that way can Check Belt and anything else in there, 

Called in to Local Diesel Specialist today and he is going to put the Seal in for me if I take Pump to him.

Doesn't look to bad in there, Belt was a little wet but has dried out completely now, Gonna spray brake cleaner or something and clean everywhere before putting back together.

Pump is at Diesel place to get seal, hopefully ready to pick up tomorrow. 

Only Diesel No sign of any Oil Leaks.

As others have said personally i WOULD change the timing belt! Just for knowing how Diesel can affect rubberized items like seals and such likes, they seem to soften, expand and perish after being in contact with diesels!?! Diesel is a freaky weird substance at times!?! When used in certain situations such us a penetrator or cleaner it's great, but when in contact with certain other components such as rubber and the likes it's quite destructive!?! Just my observations

I know Mate, Just trying to save a bit, sick of spending now, hard times anyway. but you are right,  my local Landy shop should have one in tomorrow.

Another thing I meant to ask,  I didn't get the Tool to refit, what size Bolt or Drill Bit is used as the Pin when setting it up ?

If you can get an old R380 reverse light switch from your local garage, they work well as a flywheel locking tool.  They may have a broken one in a bin or a work used one that they’d sell cheaply.

Disaster. We refitted Pump set Timing up as before when we originally changed belt and pulleys, it starts with a bit if a struggle, but chucking loads of Black smoke / Fumes. won't idle Just cut's out.  It's like it could be Over fuleing. What have we done wrong ?
