No dial gauge. Just followed the remove & refit instructions in the Land Rover Defender Workshop Manual 1993/1995 for 200tdi timing. Basically, it is just making sure it all lines up at the same time - Crankshaft TDC mark lines up with the cover plate web while the number one cylinder is closed, timing pin goes into the narrower notch on the flywheel & timing pin can slide easily & fully into the IP.I did not realize the pin should be greased. Mine was dry and clean when I had it out a while back.
Were you able to set the timing with a dial gauge? I’m wondering what the difference is between this pump and the 300Tdi version as I was under the impression that the timing can not be set with just the pin.
Good to hear that you got it running right!
The test drive will determine if it's "running right". Actually sounds normal though. I'm sure there will be fine tuning. I'm on a steep learning curve right now.
