If anyone needs them, I've got the timing tools including the dial, dial adaptor to screw into the pump, and camshaft locking tool. Feel free to add me to the list.

There's a chance I would let this car go for $1000 firm to a good home. I'm probably getting another car soon (I've always wanted a V8 W126 Benz, and a grey market one has fallen into my sight).

Awesome thread!

Coincidentally, it looks like I am about to do a very similar swap. You helped me (via e-mail) do the belt on my 85 about a year ago. The car is a total piece of junk, but the...

Injection Pump Rebuild

My injection pump has 220,000 miles on it from what I am able to gather. The engine has about half that on a rebuild and it runs absolutely fantastic, no crazy smoke, no oil leaks (I'm not kidding)...

When you tow an automatic car with the drive wheels on the ground, the transmission lubrication pump does not work, so it's like running it all those miles with no fluid.
Out of curiosity, how many...

And apparently it does more than sound good! I filled up today- 29.8mpg, and that's city mileage with an auto trans and leaky return lines. Impressive.

WTB: 7xx or 9xx wagon for D24t transplant

I have a very strong running d24t engine with numerous new mechanical parts, but the car that surrounds this motor has seen better days - it's rusty and the interior is falling apart.

So I am...

At some point in my 740td's history, a Bosal muffler was installed on the back of the car. I'm pretty sure this is a muffler for a gasoline car; it's quite restrictive. Last week, the spout on the...

Filled up with B10 yesterday. Seems to run just as good if not a little better. And oddly, the very small amount of smoke I got at full throttle is gone.

I'm carrying a spare fuel filter in the...

Will those radiators fit a d24t or are they specifically for NA cars?

My 740td has been running around with a tiny gasoline model radiator; I'd like to get the correct one on there.

Biodiesel?

Just got my D24t running with new timing belts, Bosch water pump, and new oil seals. Timing is set at .95 and it runs beautifully, even with the ancient diesel in the tank.

I'm about to fill it up...

Here's a short video at warm idle. It idles around 900-950rpm. The only things I can think of are that someone changed the idle speed (which wouldn't surprise me) or the idle speed is raised because...

Sorry for the lack of updates, I've been really busy with school.
