looking for someone to help with a Ford Duratorque 2.2 TDCI
We Overhauled this engine and seem to be struggling to set timing - first question does the gear of the HP fuel pump need to be timed as the gear was removed from the HP pump shaft. The fault we are having is that there is no power and we get a slight diesel knock on acceleration. Tappets sound rattly on first start up then seem to quieten down. We have no idea how the engine was running before coming in.
