Fuel from my Crank


Recommended Posts

Hi chaps.

I am rebuiding a Land rover Wolf (which is a 300tdi for anyone that doesnt know) after it had a fairly hard front end smash.

The timing chest cover had a small crack around the top edge from where somthing had hit it but otherwise the engine seemed good, so I replaced that and thought all was ok.

I have for the first time today managed to get it running (and it runs pretty well) and I have found I have got deisel leaking from around the crank, dripping then down to the front edge of the sump, just behind the radiator.....

When the engine is not running it slows to a drip and then stops completely, but when the engine is runiing it flows at quite a stream. I have looked all round the head, especially the injectors and cant see it coming from there at all, any ideas how I have deisel from my crank, or any where further to look?

Many thanks.

I assume then that this means a new injector pump? I have only just fitted all the cam belt and tensioners. Is there any way I can remove the injector pump with out taking the front ned apart again, or will I have to bite the bullet and undo what I have just put together?

CHeers by the way.....

Pretty sure that some of the timing kits you can buy double up to hold the FIP pulley in place with the cambelt tight so you can remove the FIP without doing the timing belt. However, the risk is that diesel has contaminated the cambelt here and might cause it to slip or degrade quickly, so i'd have it apart to change it again i'm afraid! :(

O Feck.....

Cheers for that guys. I am in a rush to get this done, as I am doing it on my parents drive and they have just sold the house....

O well.

Anyone know of the best place to get the injector pump repaired. I am in the southeast, not too far from Gatwick area.....

Give these guys a call:

Not local to you, but can send it up to them. I asked them about the necessity to overhaul the pump in a recent email and this was the reply:

'Pumps are usually left alone until faults develop, e.g. leaks, reduced power.

To rebuild a pump is between 150:00 to 350:00 + vat & takes 2 to 3 days.'

I'm shortly going to be sending a set of injectors there for reconditioning, the company gets good reviews on here.

You can replace the seal with the pump in situ. Fuel on the timing belt will severely weaken it and it'll snap eventually. The problem with the 300TDi Injector pump is that the central hub (which you have to remove), is a taper fit and has no keyway to locate the hub in the right timing position. Just mark the position of the hub - relative to the shaft it locates on before removing it. You can then remove the hub, replace the seal, then put it all back together again with no problems.

I doubt very much you'll be able to buy the seal as a seperate part from the usual Land Rover parts suppliers. A diesel specialist is what you need and you will need to tell them the vehicle/engine the pump is fitted to, and any numbers that are on the pump itself and the make of the pump.
