Thanks again Rodeast24.

Just got it back from the MOT garage. They reset the engine management light (he's got a brand new Autel diagnostic) - as you say, no actual fault, just a reset required. It would have been a pass too, except for failing on 3 lights, all on offside. He didn't have time to trace the fault as it's not the bulbs themselves, so it's back on my drive for now. If I can find the fault before Thursday, I'll do it, if not his electrician can sort it on Thursday in time for a retest and new Tax!

Absolutely amazed that it had no other issues despite sitting on my driveway for pretty much 4 years!!

Flashing mil light, after coding injectors or new PSV, Blow off valve, you will have to do a Injection pump/ reset and learn test via the diagnostic, yet again its down to the capability of the diagnostic you use, some will do it others wont. you have no faults as there are no faults present. Keep an eye on the oil level make sure it dont rise, due to fuel. and Happy days your close now.. Autel or Autoboss should be able to run pump learns and resets but only do them when truck is at running temperature, the pump needs to calibrate itself to the new injectors and at the same time learns the parameters of the PSV and so on.

All done!! - Success and major thanks to RodEast24 !

Mechanic came back yesterday with another diagnostic besides his Bosch KTS. Re-coded the injectors and double checked the valve clearances as per the book (I think he either forgot to do them, or did them to the wrong clearances). It started first time within a fraction of a second, despite the battery needing a charge. Sounds like a purring kitten now. 🙂The only minor problem we have now is the Engine light is flashing orange on the dash. Not constantly on, but flashing. We reset it by discharging the live battery lead to earth for 20 seconds, and via the diagnostic, but it's still flashing. 🤷‍♂️ No fault codes are coming up on either of his diagnostics so we were a bit stuck with that. Google came up with a big fat zilch. No smoke coming out of the exhaust, and amazingly, I drove it up the road and everything worked like it should!
Here's a vid of it purring away. (I didn't run the mechanic over, honest!! He was just putting the skid tray back on.)

Will have to take it to my local garage to investigate the engine light as that will be an MOT fail 😏, but we're much further on than a week ago.
Thanks for all the help guys.

do dahs to taking it to Mitzy, Just ask your spanner man if he can borrow a autoboss I know they work. dont want to be to harsh on your man but these trucks are getting on a bit now so its all basic stuff, reason I gave it all up, to much hassle on new stuff these days, f-ing sensors EGR systems VVT the list goes on. Mate of mine yesterday took his rangerover to independent and they charged him ?700 plus fool for fixing a electrical block on his fuel tank. World has gone F-ing mad.

your problem with fuel getting into the oil might be apparent when the rocker cover comes off, I believe the fuel pipes are under the cover and I would guess one is loose or the washers are damaged,, I cant hear the video realy well but im pritty sure I can hear a chuffing as if a injector is not seating correctly or maybe two injectors I hope you installed new seals on the injectors,, I suggest putting some grease on them to stop them falling down the hole and not seating correctly, from memory there should be two seals per injector. upper and lower, Dont think you got anything to worry about its defo injector problems coding or incorrect fitment that y best guess. you broke the back of it nearly there now. Good luck.

Just had a look at the video, looks like to me that running on two cylinders, which would explain why you had two sooty glow plugs and two glow plugs clean, to use diagnostics in the field you will need to run two or three diagnostic units (EG)  KTS, Autoboss, and snap on, the reason for this is KTS is realy good on German stuff and a lot of other makes, Autoboss would cover all the other makes, and so on for snap on.. One machine will never do all makes of car and truck. Dealers have there own dedicated software normally 50k.. so I think the KTS is not showing him the codes as it is out of the scope of the KTS, The injectors are not plug and play, they need to be coded to the ECU in the correct cylinder, I think you waisted money by getting them re furbished, but there done now so should be good for 100k,+. mity's are a pain to get into, my Autoboss is pritty good with them, I had KTS but binned it due to update fees and it let me down on a wide variety of cars and trucks.  It is alway worth looking at the timing belt timing marks again and the rocker gap's, to tight and they can hold the valves open. Have a good look at injectors with a magnifying glass there should be some codes on them somewhere.

You, Sir, are a legend. Thank you. Looks like I might have to suggest to the mechanic that it goes to a Mitsy specialist for the final leg, but on the plus side, it doesn't sound like it's a dead donkey just yet!
Still concerned about so much fuel in the oil sump, but like you say, will throw in some cheap oil until we sort it.
The injectors do have codes on the top for sure. They didn't get wiped off when they were reconditioned, just the handwritten cylinder numbers. 😏
