found the problem
the reason for the build up of diesel in the oil was that the washer's on the return lines on the injectors were leaking !!!
bought some new sealing washers -- sorted !!!
marvin


sorry i didnt get here sooner,  yup on a new shape both the injector seals and the return feed into the valve area and therefore, straight into your oil, so if your oil level is ever rising you have your answer straight away,

unlike many other makes which are open to the air and therefore give "injector chuff" as its known


also that bit about the pump, is for classics,  on a commonrail the pump can be wherever it doesnt make a bit of difference  apart from sensors

My engine was from Ivor Searle in 2011. Died last month with snapped crank.

Did it have a solid flywheel or a DMF?

Solid flywheel. 4d56 engine.

Thought so! That's what happens when you fit a solid flywheel to an engine designed to have a DMF.

no uk spec k74 ever came with a DMF and the 4d56 crank was designed long before DMF's were even invented..   DMF's are for driver comfort, not to reduce crankshaft stress,

Firstly, dual mass flywheels are fitted to protect the driveline, (clutch, gearbox, propshaft, rear axle) from torsional vibration harmonics - nothing much to do with driver comfort.



Secondly - have a look at this https://www.pistonheads.com/gassing/topic.asp?h=0&f=66&t=1632782






well, one guy being told he has a dmf by a garage, that really is proof right there!


i have seen DMF's on pajero's.  on the 2.8, and i assume the 2.5 may have had it in other markets possibly,   but the k74  as sold in the UK,    important point there,  as sold in the uk, not a factory import.   never had a DMF,  i have pulled apart a good number and have never seen a DMF yet.

DMF's remove the small vibrations which cause gearbox chatter, and, to a very small degree,  ease pulling away smoothly,    a manual gearbox is designed to cope with far higher torques from peak engine torque, and shock loading from the drive line.   the engine vibrations are tiny compared to this,  but they do cause gear chatter.

so, in summary, the job of a DMF is driver comfort above all else.  if you want proof look at HGV's.

Hi, I know it was a while ago but did you end up changing you ECU..? It looks like I may have to do mine and was wondering how big of a job it would be..
cheers

I take it you don't recommend using a scaffold tube then. I have got a torque wrench but it is only a cheepo would I be better to buy a new quality one.

you really cant go round guessing torque on heads,,   there is a "TPA" for the 4d56, but its pretty damn useless on MLS.


go up to 120nm in as many stages as you like

Thanks, I took out the rubber bung on the back of the drum but couldn't find any sign of the cog so I think they may be self adjusting.. Have adjusted the handbrake.

if they have the rubber oval then there should be something behind it,

it may be a little way in lol

Apologies if this is well known, but i was struggling with adjusting a replacement headlamp on a 2005 Warrior which has the headlight levelling motors. There doesn't seem to be a vertical adjustment screw anywhere so i found that the light could be adjusted by turning the small hexagonal extension to the shaft sticking out of the rear of the levelling motor with a 5mm 1/4" drive socket.cw for up, ccw for down. Might save somebody ( like me) who didn't know a lot of wasted time and headscratching. Cheers

I had a look at the company behind the Cybox name, TTL-UK Ltd and apparently it went bust in May this year so I probably won't be bunging £300 + in their direction, even though the Cybox website is still up, which is strange.
