This is really a follow on of my earlier saga witht the new head. The engine is running like clockwork but I cant get the heater to blow hot. I parked it on a slope and left the motor ticking over for half an hour at the end of that the heater was still blowing cold. The top hose is hot but the bottom one is cold and the thermo is closed, is it worthy taking the thermostat out, it could be faulty although I did renew it just before the problems all started. Any advice would be much appreciated. Oh and happy new year to all.Pete.

Nooks, no I am not sure as it seems Ok with no more than 25 litres in it ( bit less than half full) but once I start to take it all to bits I need to have all the bits to hand. It seems that advice is to change the sender in any case if changing the tank.

Milners sell fuel tanks. I bought  about a year ago .
Not cheap about 400 if I remember right but should last .
I painted the new one with smoothrite for added protection.

Are you sure it is the tank at fault and not just the sender unit, which also tends to rust and is located just above the half way level.

Milners usually stock sender units.

all the ones iver seen are LCV   



generally new head and MLS gasket is the way to go on the 4d56, neither survive an overheat very well


balance shafts dont really improve feel

cheers mate everything is running fine the only problem is I can't get the heater to blow hot. I've tried parking the front end on top of a pile of gravel but it doesn't seem to bleed is there something i've missed? Keep taking the pills! Cheers Pete.


keep the rad cap off and keep filling it while its idling, it shouldnt take more than 10 minutes at worst to get hot in the cab,   if it still wont go dont run it give me a ring
