200tdi skew gear and camshaft?

Recommended Posts

How important is it that you follow this caution note in the 200tdi book? \

CAUTION: If the original skew gear and

camshaft are to be re-used, they must be

fitted so that the teeth on each, mesh in the

original position. If either the skew gear or

the camshaft are renewed, the mating

component must also be renewed.

I have, of course, lost track of the relation between the skew gear and camshaft when taking apart my 200tdi for rebuilding.

I take it you mean the camshaft to oil pump/vaccuum, pump drive? It would be difficult to mesh them as original, so as long as all the parts are in good order - I personally wouldn't/don't do it. Normal wear would be uniform, so I can't see that there's any risk involved.
