So the cast I did with an Haitian voodoo master to un-cursed your engine seems to be working...

Sooo... just to close this out.

It's been about 4 days and everything seems to be working out pretty good. I can't really tell if the Turner Performance Head did anything, especially since I think the PO had messed with the IP timing a little to try and get some juice out of the old one.

But the engine is doing well, no leaks, and the cooling is staying right at 190 now.

So of course I have just jinxed myself by saying its all good. Stay tuned for more misery.

You might find the mpg improves a little...

What cooling are you running with?
Standard rad and engine driven fan?

Cooling is all back to stock, but the fan is still electric.

Just remember those engines don't like being overheated

I've had my timing belt off a couple of times now with my 200tdi. Both times after re-assembly and driving it I found that the injection pump timing was off slightly. While it ran well, I was seeing some white smoke on the overrun when cold. If you get that at all, your IP timing may be retarded. Advancing it will give you some additional power and better throttle response.

I don't know why starting the engine would alter the static timing that I did-- maybe it's belt stretch. It doesn't take much though.

Same happened to me. It ran terrible after the belt change. I followed Steve's thread on fine tuning the timing using drill bits, a few adjustments and now its perfect.

That could be said of any engine. However you can safely run both the 200 and the 300 Tdi's without a fan fitted (In a temperate climates) all you need to do is keep an eye on how long you leave the vehicle stationary and the engine on tickover.
I fitted my last 110 with an electric fan and coupled it to a manual switch on the dash, I never even needed to use it in the end....well OK, once a month to see if it was still operational.
Both my trucks have their fans removed now and there's loads of space in the engine bay.

Not if you off road. My cooling fan comes on off road frequently even in the winter. Road use, it does not, but off road, you use power and don't move fast. It needs a cooling fan.

Is yours the electric one, or a stock item? TBF most of my usage was on dirt track and through the bush, and the truck wasn't what you'd call standard. We avoided 'off roading' in your sense of the word because we were mainly doing A to B trips, usually horsing it and doing reckless stuff.
Our electric fan was manually switched so at least it was there if needed.
