The drill bit will be fine. You can set the crank by sight by looking straight up through the flywheel drain.

Shouldn't the drill bit be 9.5mm? (3/8")

correct - 9.5mm

Also can make a locating/locking tool from a wading plug

Thanks. How do you make a locating/locking tool from a wading plug? And what is the diameter of a wading plug?

you would need to drill a hole through the middle to stick a drill bit through it. I would "guess" about 1/8" would work.

you definitely want to get a proper one. There are spring loaded versions that lock into place on TDC while you are turning it from the front.

you can buy just the locking pin and timing pin on ebay.uk or difflock

So- I ordered the flywheel locking pin and am now set to do the timing. I can't for the life of me get the flywheel to turn more then a quarter turn either direction.

I think that I am 180 degrees off since I am close on the injection pump but not on TDC.

Is it really just a crescent wrench to the bolt on the flywheel pulley and brute strength? Does it matter which way I turn it?

You should always turn an engine in the forward direction. They are never intended to be spun backwards. It should turn relatively easily. You are in neutral.......right?

If the engine has been running, you are not 180 degrees out.

So, apparently I missed the neutral step. Makes it a lot easier.

Now on to my next idiot question. This hole in the photo is where I put the the flywheel locking pin correct? It doesn't seem like there is anything going on there when I turn the pulley. I've gone around twice and I can't get the locking pin to engage to tell my I am TDC and I can't see anything in the hole.

Photo is from the ground looking up.

No. That is the timing cover drain. You want the clutch housing at the other end of the engine.

Just FYI, you don't really absolutely have to have the flywheel locking pin. You simply need the flywheel timing slot to be lined up on the hole with the piston at TDC. Once you have that, DONT TURN THE CRANKSHAFT.
Also, be sure that the timing marks on the timing cover and pulleys all line up and that the piston is at TDC on the compression stroke before you go taking the belt off. (Remember the crank spins twice for each full four stroke sequence.) You should be able to get the pin in thru the pump pulley hole. Lock the injection pump using the locking bolt on the side of the pump. Only when these conditions are met do you take the belt loose. That way there is no possibility that you'll get it out of whack on reassembly.
Be sure to replace the spacer wedge thing on the injection pump lock bolt so that you don't damage anything.

I think he is simply checking the timing....not doing a belt. And looks like a 300TDI.

It's she not he.

Thanks for the video, I need an education in diesels in general.

Thankfully I'm just doing checking the timing to see of that takes care of some white smoke I have and not trying to change the timing belt.

Got it TDC at the flywheel.

Now, I can't get the 3 bolts on the IP to slacken so I can adjust it. Am I missing a step here that would make this easier?

I have the inspection plate/AC pulley off. The 3/8" drill bit won't fit all the way in- maybe an inch. From what I've read that means my timing is off and I need to slacken the 3 bolts and then turn the larger bolt clockwise until the drill bit goes in easily.

What do you mean they won't slacken? They are little bolts. Anywho, one lose, the pump will force the shaft to the limit of the slots. Use a wrench on the center nut to rotate within the limit of the slots to get the timing pin in place.

Correct. I can't get them to turn without doing damage to the heads. What happens if they don't come out and get mangled in the process of trying to get them out?
