Own 05 l200 Animal and have recently had the head gasket replaced as it had perished (work not done by me).

SInce the engine has been put back together I've had a problem with the engine missing at idle. When driving everything feels smooth with I'd say a slight lack of power up hill. (Also smokes a lot at idle and bellow 1500rpm)

I have replaced glow plugs as the truck wouldn't fire up so
Well but now starts fine but misses, I have also blanked off EGR and no improvement on misfire.

Recently had and mot with a local garage and they found 2.5 excess litres of oil in then engine! I will be having words with the guy who did the gasket!

I have recently read a thread on here about an 02 l200 with the same problem s and a simple fuel pump tweak cured the miss fire but is the 02 model a fbw like mine?

Any ideas if just calibrating all the timing would cure this?

Sounds like the fuel pump timing is out.  When fitting the timing belt tensioner, it's dead easy (and commonly done) to get the pump out by a tooth.
Should always check the timing after fitting the belt by rotating the engine by hand a couple of revs and check all the marks still line up.

it was my post  you read, its easy to slacken 4 bolts on the pump and rotate it towards to engine, advancing the timing, works on all pumps

Pump timing marks need to be right first, then the pump can be fine tuned using a dial gauge to get the injection timing spot on.

When I took a look at my pump it was different, I have a bosh Ve on my defender and I've tweaked that myself before. I also took timing case off and saw the cogs where not aligned properly so I believe this is my problem!

Should always check the timing after fitting the belt by rotating the engine by hand a couple of revs and check all the marks still line up.

In order to turn the engine by hand il need to remove timing case and belt correct?

Nope - 19mm socket on the crank pulley bolt.

But you'll need the timing covers off to check the timing marks.

I had the top timing case of yesterday and I would definitely say timing is out based on the marks! Thanks for the help though.

One more thing. Does the 19mm crank bolt need to come off to remove harmonic balancer?

You need to remove the bottom pulley to get the lower timing cover off.  So yes, it needs to come out for any work on the timing belts etc...
