    TAR replied to a thread Any shogun guruís here? in General Chat
    I'm no expert! Could be a pump issue but could equally be low compression from worn bores or blown head gasket. Are you familiar with diesel pumps, they need to be timed to the engine, the mounting holes are elongated I believe. So you'd need the spec for this and a way of measuring it (Dial gauge maybe?). They also work at high pressure and need to be primed once fitted, you'll need to make sure the injector pipes are all done up tight or you'll have diesel everywhere very quickly. ...

    Hey Don, wow, that's a rough run you've had there. I do hope you're on the mend and feeling better. I'm also not looking for anything but wanted to pass on my best regards. :happy:

    That really does sound like the issue Dave explained before where the bolts through the flex plate are loose or even the wrong ones. There isn't much of a gap between the bolt heads and the casing. :happy:

    They are the side covers not the under engine one. The rocker finisher cover is very popular and I've had a few people after it. It does have a small crack where the lines go across just above the red twin turbo section. It's barely noticeable unless you flex the cover. I'm going to ask for best offers on it as it's quite a rare find. :happy:

    I've amassed so much stuff over the years and I need some of it gone as I'm losing the storage. All parts are open for offers and can be collected or posted out providing payment is made in advance. I don't want much for any of it but I need you to make an offer rather than asking me 'how much mate?' What you see has been in a garage for a while and maybe dirty or slightly rusty. Things like the brakes will need an overhaul, they can't be used as they are. They are facelift I think....

    I agree with Adam and have used Amsoil for years without issue and know it's good for our cars. This is why we recommend it. I hope you've found an equally good ATF which will provide an alternative option for owners. :happy:

    TAR replied to a thread Awaiting delivery in Newbies Area
    AYC clutch pack requires ATF, most people recommend Amsoil, which is very good. Make sure you can get the fill bolt open BEFORE you drain it! Amsoil ATF handles the high temperatures much better than other ATF's. It's the ATF in the pump circuit from the reservoir in the boot that may help with the worn pump error. This needs bleeding which can be a bit of a pain. Some good advice in this thread -...

    Start with AYC oil change in the diff and the reservoir in the boot, that may fix the issue. After that, as Louis says, it may need an adjustable pressure switch. MPBVr4 may have one available.
