    Wightsparks,

    May I ask who did the testing and cleaning of the injectors? I have a Nissan Patrol with a leaking injector and instead of just replacing the one I would like to have them all tested.

    Cheers

    I bought @123hotchef 's cylinder head but on arrival it has identical cracks in the inserts AKA Precups or pre-combustion chambers, to the head I have taken off.

    As per earlier post I thought these cracks were what was causing the exhaust gas to be blowing into the coolant, - hence getting a replacement head - however chef assures me that the cracks are common and are no where near the coolant. So I popped one out of the old head and he is indeed correct - as they are an insert into the casting ... which means that I probably didn't need to replace the head in the first place :doh:

    Figured out a way to pull that spring back to let the tensioner down using a bit of shoelace and a G-clamp - no drama's at all.:cool:

    Mounted the belt, just a few hundred bits to bolt on now. Would have got more done but got volunteered for wallpapering duties..

    I'm assuming it is timed as all the marks line up - unless I am missing something?

    Not been able to get to it for a week but put the last bits together today and after a few splutters to blow the air out of the injectors it fired right up. :thumbup:
    No nasty noises, smells or leaks so far. Filled it with water from the top hose and the rad, getting hot air out of the heater. Ran up to temp and cooled off, sucking in some from the expansion tank. Apparently these can be difficult to bleed so left the rad cap off with the nose up and will fill tomorrow.

    Once I know it's all OK I'll put coolant in. Normal Glycol I assume but have not checked.

    I do think the starter needs a service though as it does not always seem to engage - need to drop test the batt as it might be that too.

    Right well the starter pinion seems to be a common issue so that will be on the bench next. (Really like this guy, him and a few others that really know their stuff!)
