sounds like you came in ltl and the container cleared to be unloaded and now your personal cargo entry needs to clear.

Engine is here! I picked it up after work today. I need to get some longer metric bolts to bolt it to my engine stand. Looks like a trip to Ace Hardware tonight.

Does anyone have a copy or know where there is one of the 300TDI conversion manual. I am pretty sure that one exists.

No such thing, AFAIK. There are some custom mods that are required to fit a 300TDI and it depends on what specific parts you have purchased and what you are keeping. Hopefully there is a lot more than what I see in those photos.... Google will find you some writeups.

There is a factory manual to put a 200TDI into a 2.5TD truck, but that is 100% bolt up.

I thought the manual would be the same as the one that has the instructions for wielding in the different engine mounts.

I also have a R380, cross-member, bell housing, radiator, intercooler, along with a lot of other parts. Pulled the head off today. No real ridge on the cylinders and the cross-hatch is still nice. I think this engine might have been taken care of.

I am not sure what the sensor is on the IP though. I am thinking it is some sort of Throttle Position Sensor.

I found out what the sensor is. It sends the throttle position to the EGR (So I was right as to what it was). The EGR is going into the scrap bin anyway. I just need to either buy or make a new blank for the flange. I think I might have one for a VW TDI running about. It looks to be about the same size.

Well, no need to buy an EGR blank, Duncan had one in the box for me!

I just got done tearing down the engine, so tomorrow comes the powerwasher and engine cleaner.

I would like to see if I can find a powercoater in RI/MA/SE CT to get the intake and some other bits coated.
