In need of a savvy Diesel Tech in the general Bay area, Just finished my first 1.6 TD build and I'm having timing issues , I think , I followed " how to by Waldon "
1. I am using a gas flywheel ,,, I'm using the 0 mark ,,correct? not the timing triangle mark
Fresh bore/pistons.... 1.6td block...AAZ head...1.6 pump and turbo ,,,, pump...gov and 1.9 cam
Set timing ,, dial gauge ,, once set by the book ,,, hard start , motor shakes bad,, smokes real bad , pushed pump toward motor , didn't help much ,,,, then jumped one tooth advanced , easy start now , little to no smoke ,,,, sounds if it is running good now ,,,,,but,,,, Boost gauge reads 2-3 lbs and high rpm ,,,,before at factory timing settings running rough read 5-7 lbs
The pump was from a running car and performed good , though I did modify it,
will too low compression cause any of this ,,, AAZ head on 1.6 lowers by 1 point and I used a 3 notch Gasket.
ran though a bunch of injectors , two pumps
Open to suggestions
If there's some in the area that could take the time to do a visual , I would greatly appreciate it.
