New diesel motor advice

Ok the Cosworth conversion removed. Purchased a donor vehicle for 1.9td engine. Fitted, turbo fail ran on engine oil and now dead. I want a engine. Looking at 1.9td again. I have sump, bell housing etc off old blown motor. What should I look for as replacement? Crewcab is being shipped home in March...

Re: Cosworth 2.9litre in my Crewwy

One of the main reasons was due to me thinking of selling it for maximum value and letting someone else put it in their T25. The crewcab is in such good condition that with a stock motor it will sell for top money. With the cosworth engine installed the market of potential buyers is very narrow. The...

Re: Cosworth 2.9litre in my Crewwy

Well back in the lock up and the crewcab is sat waiting for an engine. I bought a full camper for the TD engine. Took out everything Cosworth which broke my heart and it is all sat on a pallet with me trying to work out what to do with it all. Installed the TD, turbo seal failed and basically destro...

Replacement engine from 04 passet 1.9td redeye

Ok. Basic question. I have been offered a 1.9passat on 04 place. It is a 1.9 turbo diesel "redeye". Ignoring electrical issue at moment. Does anybody know if a jx sump will fit? Is there anything else I should consider except sump and pick up pipes? The jx turbo filled and hydrated. It is ...

Re: 1.6 JX TD Engine not revving

The back of the crewcab was up in the air so could not put in gear. We did stall it by cutting air off and it did not burn all oil so we thought we had saved it. Set it up to run without turbo to fire it up to have a listen but it is locked up. Turns slowly under cracker bar but water came out of bo...

Re: 1.6 JX TD Engine not revving

Well, what can I say......... Got the engine installed. All electric sorted. All water works sorted. Started on the key every time on the button. But the thing just would not rev. Let it run for a minute to ensure fuel was constant etc. Cracked an injector to start bleed process. Engine revs maxed o...

1.6 JX TD Engine not revving

OK, Hopefully last question. The JX is not in and fires on the key. All is good. Well not really. If fires on key but will just high tick over producing a lot of smoke with zero throttle response. I am sure I read a similar thread but as normal when you try and find it you have no luck. Could someon...

Re: Cosworth 2.9litre in my Crewwy

Aidan, Engine is out as a whole unit. Took out the Cosworth engine, KEP conversion, 4 speed box, full wiring harness and exhausts and all mountings. Someone who wants 230bhp in their van can just bolt it all in and off they go. All the work is done. The wiring is positive, negative and ignition swit...

Re: To Subaru or not to Subaru ? ?

I did the cosworth conversion in mine. I spent a lot of money and time doing it. The end result was a fantastically powerful vehicle with no impact on the exterior. (well apart from the way I built and mounted the exhausts). I had 220bhp underfoot and Accelerator was relentless. However, to sell it ...
