What nm m do I torque to delivery holders to. My deisel guy told me to torque the holdet to 45 nm m. When I did it, the engine black smoked which indicates too much diesel is being delivered to the cylinder. When I slacken it a bit, it does not black smoke, but is missing on that particular cylinder. Could it be possible the delivery valve is damaged or tbe plunger under it ?
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I did exactly what you told me previous to contacting you to get the engine started when it ran out of diesel. It started but it has this problem.

Hi

Thank you for the response,

to be honest with you ,you may have cracked the delivery valve

but more so the punger

I suggest removing and replacing that

yes torque is 43-44 mm

I hope this helps you
