    I had a an old P38 diesel which i managed to refurb the injector pump in situ so i have had a bit of experience with diesels On the shoguns i’ve read they have a couple of sensors on the injection pump but they also have a chip in them which connects to the ecu, just don’t know what to believe about these

    Hi all, been a while since i’ve been on here but need some advice on a 3.2 diesel shogun that i might be looking to buy cheap Basically it needs some work, rear brakes (no worries) Mot (again no real worries) The big one for me is it’s hard to start and lacking a bit of power, now i’ve read horror stories about the injection pump Question is are they really that bad and how hard are they to sort out? Now i don’t know it is the pump but i don’t know it isn’t either Any advice greatly...

    lots of heat and penetrating oil before you try and remove bolts will see you right.

    hmm that is interesting as my next engine build will be wanting to fit forged pistons and rods. but this will mean cylinder board machining to oversized pistons and posibly crank bore/journals resized as the standard bearing seem to be getting difficult to get hold of.

    looks like a bad engagement of the starter cog teeth as nev has said. looks like only partial contact on start up. it is a gerbox out of the car job to change the torque plate, as it is bolted to the end of the crankshaft. the torque plate clattering against the torque converter bolts will probably have damage the holes in the torque plate and elongated them. remember to use thread lock on the crankshaft bolts as well as the torque converter bolt. if you dont use thread lock in the...

    I understand that they do one, it is stainless from what I know but is stock dimensions so not a performance upgrade. I've never seen one fitted though.

    Holy crap Don! I think this is a rare occasion where 'exceptional' might well be an understatement!! :o I can only echo the prior sentiments above /grouphug As for the WhatsApp group, it is exceptional circumstances when the discussion is on topic, since it is mainly Rikki taking the pss or Kryton making drunken purchases. So, a bit like the CVR4 chats of old really! /lol

    I might be barking up the wrong tree here - but is the starter motor engaging properly?

    what is exactly wrong with you torque converter. please explain a little bit more and we might be able to help "shuttering with starter motor" tells us nothing i had an issue with my torque converter (T/C) on start up and on idle, and lift off of the accelerator. i had a random clattering noise. the flex plate to torque converter bolts had worked loose and were rattling in the flex plate holes.

    I think it is different to lower powered galants. It may be the same as the Evo 7 GTA.

    It's mostly through the wheel arch, yes. The tensioner pulley has an offset mounting point, so you loosen the bolt, rotate the pulley and retorque the bolt. Obviously, loosening the bolt can leave significant slack on the belt, so I'd be doing something to hold the belt to the cams during the process.

    All I can see in the members area is EA2, EA5 and EA6. Maybe someone else knows if there are more but I can't see any others.

    This post shows the cambelt with the engine out and the covers off. https://www.clubvr4.com/forum/showthread.php?63304-Nicks-Project-Hamilton&p=701713&viewfull=1#post701713 The tensioner pully is on the left as you look at the picture, between the crank pulley and the rear cam. That pully is attached to a pivot arm - the pivot point is the bolt just below the pulley, with the pivot arm going down and to the left. The hydraulic tensioner is perpendicular to the end of the pivot arm and you...

    If the engine moves back slightly then you can get some slack there. To check everything is okay, I would remove the covers for the whole cam belt and then rotate the crank by hand until the timing marks on the ca sprockets and rocker covers line up. I'd use a small square off the rocker cover as optical illusion can make it look a tooth out when it is way less. Once you have achieved this by only rotating clockwise, then have a look a the hydraulic tensioner. It should have a couple of mm...

    I changed the idle point in the ECU . Because as standard the idle out of gear. Is different to the idle in gear value. One is set to 600rpm and one is set to 650rpm. I think it is the in gear idle set to 600rpm which was to low on my car. Setting it to 650rpm was good for me. I changed it because 600rpm set up a resonant frequency vibration in my car and I wanted to get rid of that.

    Sounds like the standard 'feature'! These can be a little susceptible to heat soak so the initial 30s or so after restarting the temperature readings can be a bit off until the normal air flow through the system has cooled things to the ambient temperature again. The gearbox might be linked if that's the only time it clunks a bit into gear and is fine the rest of the time.
