312D rebuilt engine - pump timing help!
I've just swapped the engine in my 312D as the head has a fault in it, and I picked up a donor vehicle which had done fewer miles (from the same previous owner).
I had to swap the injector pump from one to the other, as the donor was accident damaged, and the ECU cable to the pump was damaged/severed.
The engine was timed up using standard marks, and the pump set for it just coming on to No.1, and fitted with the engine at TDC. I assume the knotch in the drive gear is associated with the position of the pump?
I have bled the injector lines, and wound it over. It doesn't fire.
I know nothing about these engines, other than they are "just another diesel", are there any tips and tricks, or something I'm completely missing.
I don't have access to a "Star" confuser myself, but if I can get it to run, I can get it to someone who does.
Ideas on a postcard.....
