Evan's Coolant

Does anyone with a 300tdi have experiences with Evan's Coolant? I was thinking about running it since the engine block was rebuild and I will be running a new HD AlliSport radiator that Randy brought in for me. I read some reviews on diesel forums that some guys are happy and some guys aren't happy because it doesn't pressurize.

Jay Leno likes it and its seems like a great alternative. Expensive as hell though!

That's interesting stuff, though I'd probably continue to run the typical 50/50 glycol/distilled in my 300 just because that's the way it's been done for 30 years and my truck tends to run cool anyway.

I wonder if it's compatible with MKIII range rovers (the seals and BMW quick connections in particular) because that's where i see the value here (in systems where seal/o-ring degredation) can cost thousands.
My Cayenne Turbo runs HOT and I'd use this if it were blessed by Porsche for sure.

Also when leaks it is a lot simpler to find regular coolant anywhere.

I have a few problems with using something other than regular green coolant. My first issue is that its not available at every gas station should you need to top up. The second is that regular coolant works well enough. The last thing is that we are talking about a Land Rover that is going to need cooling system repairs at some point, probably sooner rather than later. I think you'd be wasting your money.

Had a good day working on the engine. Got lots buttoned up.

Couple of questions. I was thinking about running a soft hydraulic line form the LHD clutch to the right side of the bellhousing where the slave cly sits. Anyone know what size fittings these are?


And also the power steering pump is missing that lower fitting. I think its the same on a V8 D1 and RRC. Not sure about the Defender V8 but i'd assume its the same. Anyone know where I can get that fitting? size too?


Thanks for the help

Randy (TDiGuy) got me an Allisport heavy duty radiator and full width intercooler. Man this is some quality stuff. The build quality and welds are so nice... like too nice for my truck!

Installed those and put the tank back in and ran the fuel lines.

Going to paint that front panel this week.

Looks great Dan. You need the header tank to complete the system..😛. I also need that fitting on the power steering pump but for a td5 pump so if anyone has one let me know

So I tried to fire the truck up two weekends ago and no go

I think timing is set right as per last shot I had of the timing cover off


I ran 12v to that IP solenoid and I can feel it click on... I should check and make sure its working but I know it is as fuel as its pushing out of the injectors.

I did notice that fuel was pissing out of the filter where it meets the housing, which I doubt would make a difference in terms of pressure in the IP.

Could the IP be set too retarded? Crank and cam or timed right (no valves crashing into the pistons)

I have the timing kit and put the pin in the flywheel in the groove on the bottom while the 2nd groove is around 9 o'clock position if looking at the flywheel from the back, that is correct right?

Any suggestions?

Timing pins should fit at the flywheel and pump at the same time corresponding to the crank.
Are you sure the flywheel is mounted to the crankshaft the correct way?
There's another pin inside, that sometimes comes out with the flywheel when dismanteled.

yes pin in the flywheel and IP was set together. The flywheel can only go on one way as it has a doweled hole which matches up to the crank pin

When the flywheel pin was in, was the dowel for the front dampener at the 12:00 position? It should be.

Aren't there two notches in the flywheel that the tool will fit in?

Yes it was. dowel and crank gear facing up. Cam timing mark was pointed to the 7 o'clock position. My thinking is that maybe the IP was set a little bit off because when i was towing it around the yard in gear the smoke coming out was white in puff, some of those puffs being amazingly perfect circles!

So I thought my IP was 180 degrees off and squirting on the up stroke/exhaust valve open or intake valve open.

im going to check and take the valve cover off. The valves to #1 should be closed at TDC

Got it running today! Sounded a bit retarded so I'm going to recheck it. The pin slides in but it's really damn right and actually pitches it in there. So I may just advance it 10degrees.

But It's RUNNING!!!

Little spin around the yard. Timing set correct this time. Straight through exhaust. No fuel mods on the IP yet. Its a strong rebuilt 300.
