200tdi oil leak timing belt tens pulley pivot

Just put a similar post on the Uk forum to cover all bases. Just finishing a 200tdi installation on my previously 2.25 gas powered 110. Started up the motor and noticed an oil drip from the hole in the bottom of the timing cover. Assumed it was a seal issue and took off the cover to find it was the timing belt tensioner pulley pivot pin peg being loose in the inner cover being the source of the leak. It has about 30 thou play. As there is no load on the pin it has been suggested to seal it with liquid metal. Has anyone else had this issue ? am hoping to take it to the MAR

If you can remove it, ping it with a centering punch in a few spots. The raised edge created by the punch will make the fit a bit more snug. The refit with a liberal coating of the loctite product of your choosing. I think that would have a better chance of success.

You really gotta clean all the oil and dirt out of any hole you put loctite in, as well as the pin, or bolt, for best results.
By liquid metal I'm guessing you mean something like JB Weld. Again, scrupulously clean will win the day.

I can not remove it is flared on the inside if the inner cover. The guy in the UK who did the rebuild, did not notice it and told me it was not his problem as it was my engine. Very unimpressed with Landy Ltd on the whole rebuild to be honest. Will try JB Weld or similar but to do a correct fix the inner cover needs to come off.

I don't know how much movement you have there but if it is minimal, I give the jb weld fix about 1:10000 chance of working. Given you cannot remove the item, I would clean the area with loctite primer or brake kleen, blow it out good with co2 or compressed air, then hit it with the capillary acting loctite. That should flow into the joint and will cure better in the presence of other chemicals.

Probably about 30 thou play. Will clean with brake cleaner blow with air and repeat a few times then seal it and fingers crossed for the MAR . Still amazed this was not spotted during the rebuild.
