Hi From Rutland
Just bought my second K74 L200. Last one threw a rod but missed it so much I've bought another low mileage one with coolant bubbling issues. It was cheap enough I can afford a head repair or maybe even another lump if need be. It appears to be registered as a Commercial whereas my old one was PLG and that's causing the insurance quotes to be a lot higher. Anyone else had the same problem? I might try getting it reclassified with the DVLA, but I fear that's going to be more painful than curing the coolant problems.
Cheers Kev

Don't bother with a new lump,if you follow my thread on the forum under "resurection" you will see I have just put a new head on myself for the first time on one of these. Douchcalamondaes advice was enough to make it possible. The whole project cost about 500 pounds including a few tools I had to buy. Have fun.

Thanks, I've got most of the ancillaries out of the way now. Surprised to find the balancer belt had already snapped. Luckily it hadn't snagged the cam belt. I thought the engine ran quite well when I picked the truck up so can't wait to see what it's like with balancer shafts spinning! Going to do a cylinder leakage test before lifting the head as I'd like to know what cylinder/cylinders are causing the problem. I'm just waiting on an adaptor for the injector threads. Should be back on the case with it next week.

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
