camshaft carrier + camshaft TOO TIGHT

hey all,


Land Rover Defender, 110, year: 2006

I redid my head, bought the head gasket, and all is good.

the problem comes when I torque the bolts


at 22, the engine rotates (camshaft as well)

at 48 lbs the engine rotates (camshaft as well)


after the 90 degrees, 180 degrees, the engine rotates, but NOT the camshaft.


what could be my problem?? .... anyone??

could the carrier be warped or.... loose, or should I install a small gasket ??



thanks for any help,


Antonio

300TDI?

Did you use the right head gasket? Did you measure piston protrusion?

Is the timing belt installed and setup correctly? Is there enough valve lash?

Hello Red90,

no sir, it is a TD5

I did get the right head gasket.

and like I say, if I REMOVE the chain sprocket (that bolts on to the camshaft), the engine DOES move, as soon as I bolt the sprocket on to the camshaft, NOTHING moves.

I would ask on a UK based forum. There is not much TD5 experience here.
