2.5TD Running Engine Interest

I am about to pull my 2.5TD engine and replace it with a 200Tdi.

This engine has about 100K miles on it but suffers from the pressure build up that causes oil leaks. It runs great and pulls fine and smokes a little when I start it but not after a minute or so. It does not consume a lot of oil but drips some oil when I park it.

It has:

1. New timing belt and idlers.
2. New water pump
3. New glow plugs
4. New boost diaphragm

I can video it starting and running if there is any interest.

Not sure if there is any interest or what the price would be. Also maybe the parts are worth more than the whole engine. The turbo works fine, injector pump as well.

Any suggestions?

Do a compression test before you pull the motor - will help with your sales price if you have strong and consistent compression with little blow-by.

Good idea. I will do another compression test. I did one last year and they were good.
