    Hallo.
    after being left overnight I was curious to see diesel over the floor and on the inside of the timing belt case.
    it was dry yesterday- from the pooling it can only entered from behind the camshaft sprocket.
    Is this likely? it had not happened in the last week or so that we had cover off- Why now? is it painful 14jul20-engine 003.JPG 14jul20-engine 004.JPG cost wise?

    That looks like your fuel pump has sprung a leak in the seal behind the pulley.
    There are a few good videos on youtube , britanicca restorations did one I believe.


    Cheers

    Doom and Gloom- the short lived joy at removing the crank sprocket with a home made puller has evaporated...

    Seal is easy enough to change , timing it again properly is where you need to make sure you get it right. Should not be an expensive job to do_Or if you get a reputable known diesel guy to fix it for you should ne be too bad, but make sure they know what they are doing ref the retiming of it.
    Just ask @border

    Cheers

    Seal kit is available on the bay, as is the DTI you'll need to re-time the pump :rolleyes:

    DTI kit easy enough to use, loads of vids on youtube.
    I cannot remember if it is the disco or def 200 you need a 90 degree adaptor for the dti to use it on the engine, as space is at a premium.

    I think it is the shogun that used to suffer badly from this, there was a guy local who used to do them mobile, maybe someone near you who does the same?

    I think it is the seal where the DIP fits to the case.

    There is no diesel seal where the FIP firs into the timing case. The seal is on the main FIP shaft to the FIP body.

    Cheers
