300tdi Timing belt tracking

On the 300tdi there is a chance your timing belt may not track straight, resulting in premature failure. Various parts and kits are available to make sure this does not happen. Once you are done you can check things out by running the motor with the timing cover off:

I would assume this would not be something you would want to try with a 200tdi since the water pump has to be removed when you remove the timing belt cover?

I may have missed something, but that wasn't your motor was it?

Any "parts and kits" you are aware of to get it to track better??

How many miles before you accumulated that much rubber shavings in the case?!?!?!

What did you do to prevent that from happening again??

The photos are of the motor that is now in my truck, and were taken in July of last year before I installed it. The one in the video is a different motor. At the time I did mine I did not know of running the engine this way.

I fitted the upgraded crankshaft timing gear, tensioner, and idler pulley that make up the basic kit to prevent the belt walking off. They did away with the shoulder that used to be on the tensioner and put it on the crank gear. There is also a different bracket for the injector pump that slightly changes its position to also aid in preventing belt misalignment. I have that bracket, somewhere...

The engine in the video had no signs of belt issues at all, but was changed due to lack of service history on the vehicle.

I don't think the 200tdi engines have the issue of the belts walking off.

nope, mine - new timing belt, tensioner, idler (the kit from Eric @ Atlantic British see this thread -> http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...ad.php?t=26123), an oil seal on crank pulley inside of the timing cover, silicone intercooler hoses (also from Eric -> http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...ad.php?t=25927) and new radiator hoses.
