Re: 1Y Injection Pump help!

Made some progress today, colinthefox (top bloke) suggested I try a gravity feed fuel system, as it may be that the vane mechanisms in the injection pump are a bit seized? https://funkyimg.com/i/367Vn.jpg Colin was right and I had the van started for well over a minute today (revved nicely too!). I ...

Re: 1Y Injection Pump help!

Hope these help. I've basically only connected the 12v wire to the solenoid.

1Y Injection Pump help!

Hi everyone, I've managed to recently swap a 1Y engine into my van. Engine will start for roughly 10-20 seconds (and will rev) but cuts out after that. Fuel is getting to the injectors and i've managed to bleed them a few times. I know the fuel lines are air tight as i can suck fuel through manually...

Re: 1Y Head Gasket Advice

Engine was loosing a lot of oil Oldie. Barely registering on the dipstick now. Didn't think it was wise to run it again today in case I ruined the engine! What else can i check with the oil cooler? Pretty sure it's on the right way and i've torqued the nut to spec. Is there a way to test if the cool...

Re: 1Y Head Gasket Advice

If the pump stays in place, can I not put a pin/bolt in the timing slot to keep it set? Will put everything to TDC before removing belt. Yes but the timing is set against the crank and cam With the cam gear giving a way to allow movement In the next to be adjusted out before tightening the cam pull...

Re: 1Y Head Gasket Advice

Bentley says CS, KY and JX Heads can be removed while in Van. Hopefully this applies to 1Y's too. Manifolds are most likely going to have to come off I think. Can the Injection pump stay on while I remove the head? Don't want to have to play around with pump timing right now too! You will have to d...

Re: 1Y Head Gasket Advice

Mr VW he say "no skimee" So do most manufacturers, buy anyone know why and what the outcome is ? Apparently it's to do with Ra (Roughness Average) and HIP (Hot Isostatic Pressing). People seem to do it regardless though? If there is no visible wear or damage, I will most likely just put another gas...

Interesting, I will have to remove it and inspect anyway. Do you think there is enough space to remove the cylinder head without removing the engine again Oldie?

Re: 1Y Head Gasket Advice

I've just been told by a friend that if it is the Head Gasket, it may not need the Head skimming? Just a new gasket?

My only experience was with an old "Non VW" car when i was a teenager. When the head gasket went on that one, the Head had to be skimmed also.

1Y Head Gasket Advice

Hi people, thanks for the help of forum members on another thread (and pm's) I managed to get my 1Y engine to start up yesterday. Bad news is, I'm now pretty sure the head gasket has gone. I spotted some oil in the coolant reservoir after a few bad starts yesterday (wouldn't idle) and when i checked...

Re: 1Y Injection Pump Wiring

Some success today, bled the fuel system again and got the van to actually start up! It didn't sound too happy (been stood for 2 years though) and I couldn't get it to idle?

Not sure what that is sorry Oldie? Fuel cut off solenoid?

Did you start your van with just that connected?

Re: 1Y Injection Pump Wiring

Yep, installed 4 brand new glow plugs whilst it was out. Inspected all the injectors and fitted new flame traps too.

I'm still wondering if i need to connect anything else on the injection pump?

Will give bleeding the lines another go tomorrow :ok
