I posted this once before, and searched the internet up and down, but i never really got an answer.
Basicaly what is happening, is i have a fresh 300 tdi, that had about 17000 miles on it. It was the rebuilt up using genuine LR parts, or OEM... no Britpart.
Once the engine was installed, it turned over fine, and is running with no performace issues. The exhaust is barley visible in both idel and use.
But when we went to check the valve/lash caps at 1000 km, they were worn and needed replacing. So we replaced them with Genuine LR ones not OEM ones...Re did the valve adjustments ussing a .008 or .0203mm feeler gauge. Then dumped the oil, removed the pan, and cleaned it all out to remove the small metal bits perduced by thier wear. Once the oil change was complete, ran it for 600 more km and cheked. These caps are even worse. There is one that has been worn out so bad it is nothing more then a dougnut now
Does any one had any issues as to why this would be happening?
any thoughts? we have pulled front of the truck apart and double checked the timing. Timing appears to be dead on....
