    Injector tester setup, fittings and initial testing

    Engine is up and running again. I'm more surprised how well it ran with poorly functioning injectors than how it is running now. It is at least as good now, but there is no obvious improvement. This video shows the exhaust around 4:40 and it is very clean...

    CA Hagerty Alternatives?

    I have Hagerty in MN and was not informed of any garage requirement when I signed up. I was out of options and was happy to find any legal means to drive my Deuce even if the policy covered nothing but allowed me to drive. You should ask "how about if my garage fits in my Deuce? Would that...

    It's running again: Part 5: https://rumble.com/vj41wv-m35a2-cylinder-liner-repair-part-5-running-again.html The new liner and the 5 cracked liners have survived about 70 miles of driving so far.

    Torque stick or torque wrench

    About 3 feet. My body weight (190 lbs) a few inches from the end is the correct torque, if I calculated correctly.

    M35A2 Cylinder Liners - Type "Y"

    from the TM: " 1. Look at left side of crankcase opposite each cylinder bore about one inch below top of crankcase. The letter "Y" opposite a cylinder bore means this is a Y-size cylinder bore. The letter "Z" opposite a cylinder bore means this is a Z-size cylinder bore." In the picture...

    M35A2 Cylinder Liners - Type "Y"

    I have found multiple sources for type "Z" cylinder liners, but my Continental LDT 456-1D has the "Y" stamps. Though a Z fits, I don't know if it will work as it is slightly smaller OD. Are the "Y" types extinct?

    Torque stick or torque wrench

    I use a simple breaker bar, did the math, and put a piece of tape where all my body weight at that point creates the correct torque. As others said, the condition, cleanliness and lubrication is a factor. I have a torque multiplier, but don't use it unless a nut is stuck, which is rare.

    C turbo rebuild

    I found a rebuild kit for the "D" turbo that included bearings, but not the compressor wheel. There were also a lot of compressor wheels, but it was hard to be sure if any were a good match and I ended up getting a used 'D' turbo as a replacement. Here is the kit (note it may NOT work for a C...

    Injector tester setup, fittings and initial testing

    Thanks for the reply and info. I had no luck finding non-brass fittings so took the chance. I wore a full face shield for the initial testing. The tester is a very common, below $100, just search for 'diesel injector tester'. Surprisingly the main body of the tester is plastic, but it still...

    Injector tester setup, fittings and initial testing

    While working on another repair, I decided to test my injectors and discovered half of them were not performing well, yet the vehicle had been running fairly well. Started easy in warm weather, not great in cold weather. Video showing my fittings setup to work with a cheap ebay tester and...

    Cylinder Liner broken pieces in oil pan

    So far I don't know why the liner failed but 2 possible contributers: 1. Previous turbo failure where compressor wheel got ground up by nut that fell off and bounced around. This allowed small aluminum particles to get sucked into the air intake... 2. Injectors not functioning well. Some ok...

    Cylinder Liner broken pieces in oil pan

    Yes, it is a great piece of art. One of a kind. UPDATE 4-10-2021: I got a NOS cylinder liner kit that included a piston, piston pin, rings pre-installed, and even the piston cooling nozzle oil jet assembly. Piston has what looks and feels like some sort of black coating: Wanted...

    Cylinder Liner broken pieces in oil pan

    Fairly consistent, but louder than normal, followed by inconsistent banging, clanging. The noise seems to agree with the liner issue for 1 piston. My guess is the liner was damaged partially at first but still mostly in place. After idling a couple minutes it slid down and broke up...

    Cylinder Liner broken pieces in oil pan

    Thanks for the replies and good info. Disassembly is in progress. My plan is to do some inspection and figure out if any more damage exists. So far i'm leaning toward repairing it. I ran a tiny camera into the injector port and could see some chunks on top of the piston also as expected...
