well done thesauvage, I'm chiming in a bit late on this but I'm glad to see a classic
wont start thread solved
without the usual kneejerk resort to pulling apart lift
pumps and injector pumps, tho' you were on the verge of fiddling pointlessly with the injectors before you actually checked the cheapest, easiest and most common cause of these sorts of problem, the fuel
lines. I spent a year sorting through a medley of recurring fuel
air leak problems with my 2qm20
and it was actually running quite well when i first got it, so let me warn you to check the following; the fuel tank
taps, fuel filter
connections and bleed screw, bleed screw seal on injector pump
, seal on lift pump
on secondary filter and its bleed screw, vibration damping on the fuel lines to injectors - if there isnt any make some.
get all these things bullet proofed and you'll have years of trouble free running from a 2qm20
. good luck.
