Yeah I was never going to salvage the one one. I was only concerned how it happen in the first place. Water ingest to wear away at the key?

RN sells a genuine timing kit that I'll use. Comes with the crank gear. I'll trust genuine over some aftermarket one.

Shot over to NJ yesterday to pull the valves and springs. Going to clean it up and skim the head before putting it all back together. Progress is going well seeing as the engine is about an hours drive from me and I only have the weekends to work on it!

Does anyone have or sell a 300Tdi radiator? RN has one which is made by proline, but not sure if there are others out there.

I took the last two weekends off on the rebuild. But here are some updates on the engine. Parts were all cleaned. Block is ready for new bearings and crank. Head was skimmed and valves lapped. Flywheel resurfaced too. Peanut butter cookies came out a little dry but they were still good.

I got around to putting it all back together and it went real fast, this is such a simple engine design. Only thing that stopped me from getting it all back together in one day was my con rod bearings were on backorder from RN. Called up George at RDS and he had a set so those should be in this weekend. Once the pistons are back in I'll button up the bottom and put the head back on.

Honed the cylinders. Timing cover on etc on. Popped in new keyway for that rusted out one on the crank and added some anti-seize to it so that hopefully water ingest would be kept to a minimum so that won't happen again.

I am sourcing a fan pulley mount for the broken one so the front cover might take a week or so to get on.

hey daniel,

I've never done an engine rebuild of this depth, but I would love to eventually. Did you ever end up measuring runout on the old crank? Do you remember how much was material was removed on the old cranks and how oversized the new bearings are?

Are you going to put a 1.4 transfer box in? If you're still working on it when I move I'd love to stop by and check out how the swap is going and lend a hand if needed.

I gave it to my guy at the machine shop. He measured it out and inspected it and said it only needed a polish. So I stuck with the stock main bearing shells. LR has bearing oversized at +.010, +.020, +.030, +.040, so it should cover you IF you have to take some off.

Your old bearings will tell the story of wear and if you should go oversize or not.

I fitted a slightly larger thrust washer on the crank because my lateral movement was right at the max. I think this could have added to the wear on the old crank bearings edges.

Sounds good Jimmy! I already have the 1.4TC in there. I need to figure out gearing after the engine is in and running. I have stock diffs in and spare 4.11s I could throw in. But the truck is also downsizing to 255/85 tires after the swap.

Anyone else have their truck running good highway speeds with a 1.4tc/3.54diff or 1.2tc/4.11diff with 255/85 or 33" tall tires?

I have an over drive I will be fitting to the truck too

I *think* Galpin runs a 1.2tcase...I know he's got 4.11s & 255 KM2s. Or, now that I think about it maybe he is still on a 1.4 tcase.

I run a 1.222 tcase, 255s, and 4.71s. Not fun on the road, but I can do 70mph (75 if I really want to push it), but my rpms are screaming. Of course I'm in a V8, I think you'll be fine with the Tdi and 4.11s.

My 110 had 235/85R16's, a 1.4 transfer box, and stock gears. I had no issues cruising at highway speeds. I never really went above 75 in it. I think you should be golden with the 4.11 gears and the 1.4 transfer box. It will be a pig with the stock gears and that size tire. Are you doing a totally stock setup with the motor?

I had a 1.4 with 4.11s and it was too high with my 315/75 tires. I can cruise 80mph with a 1.4 and stock gears so I am thinking I should be fine with the 33" tires and same gears. I just want to have my overdrive be useful and not have it be some unreachable gear I have to hold the pedal to the floor to get.

Randy (TdiGuy) is getting me a sweet Allisport radiator and intercooler so I could turn up the IP a little to give me that extra grunt.

I run a 1.2, stock diffs and 34s. Gearing is really nice like that for the 90. Would be a bit much for 1st gear in a 110.

That is gonna make things pretty sweet! Not trying to get you to spend more $$$, but since you're building this from the ground-up per-se, maybe think about the VNT turbo kit. I'm still trying to coax a bit more boost out of my stock turbo to fully take advantage of the Alisport IC.
The VNT maybe next on the "t-rucket" list. It seems to take a lot of pressure to fill that big ass IC!

Thanks for posting up pics of the rebuild

Well I have a 2.8TGV too. I was going to put that in the 90 but decided to try the 300Tdi for now. Parts are easier to get and I want to save or sell the 2.8 later. Or slap that into the Series One for a bit of fun! I've heard the VNT turbos don't give that much more noticeable power for the cost. I could put that one I have coming in on, but wouldn't want to break that 2.8 engine kit up just for that.

Would anyone on the board have a clutch alignment too I could borrow? I would pay for shipping it out and back to you.
