Idle speed Vibrations

G'day,
I search the forum and couldn't find anything on vibrations at idle speed. My 110 200tdi vibrates at idle speed more then I can stand. It shakes every plastic bits of the dash, enough to loosen the screw and shake everything around. If I touch the fun pedal a bit so the rpm goes +/- 100 more it feel more civilize. the idle speed is about (ear setting) 600-700rpm. I checked the engine mounts as well as tranny and t-case. They're new and well bolted. I know they're agricultural type of diesel but is there a cure?

Thanks,
Jeff

Try raising idle 100rpm or so.

It might be a bit too much? What's the normal idle speed for a defender 200tdi?

I find 800rpm or so good, diesels smooth out as rpm increase in general, too low and they shake like mad.

If I want to fit an rpm gauge (I have an old smith outta mini) once I have the wire coming out of the alternator, do I need to ground the gauge? I'm thinking about using the gauge to know the actual rpm setting.


Of course I do.. I just thought about it for a second. I might be a bit tired! I'll set up the gauge and try to get it to 800rpm. Do you know the factory setting? Is it 800rpm ?

The adjustment for idle speed ain't the throttle cable? Is it? There must be a screw of some kind? Can anyone tell me which one is it?
Thanks lads!

I have the same issue. Mine vibrates like hell at 700rpm, and a simple increase to 800rpm clears it up.
