    TDI in a Toyota pickup

    The fuel filter is a definite weakness in my maintenance program. I purchased a heavy duty fuel filter/water separator - a WIX 53698. Unfortunately, I can't find any info on line about it; they may have changed part #'s or something. Do you have any specific filter recs? I'd be happy to add...

    TDI in a Toyota pickup

    Hi Wally! Thanks for the tips! - no apologies necessary -:) Sorry for the late replies - my web is down, and I have to go to town coffee shops to get to a web link. Regarding the damage, I'm just trying to get to the bottom of it's cause. Nothing is off the table, even if it highlights my...

    TDI in a Toyota pickup

    This would certainly be a good example of why to check the spray pattern. :o 1) how frequently would you recommend checking? (I had no obvious warning) 2) If there is a good warning (poor starting, smoke, etc etc) what is it? 3) For those of us without the equipment/expertise - who would...

    TDI in a Toyota pickup

    I'm doing ok. It's turned into a bit more work than I expected to replace the 1Z with a PD. Would you have any info about Biodiesel's maximum temperature and pressure that it can withstand within the injectors? I'm trying to approach this as methodically as possible. I would love to run...

    TDI in a Toyota pickup

    I agree DBW is definitely anti-biofuel. The main concern I have is that he did make some good points when we were talking about it. Specifically, the issue of Biodiesel's ability to resist high pressure and temperature. Both temperature and pressure are significantly higher on the PD's vs...

    TDI in a Toyota pickup

    I always used ASTM biodiesel from certified commercial sellers. I would use anywhere from 25% to 75% (splash mixed). The main reason I stayed away from 100% was to avoid issues with chemical incompatibilities with hoses and o-rings. Over this weekend, I had both my "new" PD injectors and my...

    TDI in a Toyota pickup

    Good news - thing's are not as bad as I thought they were. :) DBW will be able to use BEW pump pistons in AJM PD bodies. The remaining issue is that the BEW pump pistons have different ends than AJM pump pistons, so the adjuster screw/ball pin that threads into the rocker will need to be...

    BEW vs European (pd150 or pd115) injector adjuster

    I recently acquired a German AJM PD engine for a project. Part of the project is to upgrade the nozzles to PP1043 nozzles and have the nozzles properly installed and balanced. (and tune, of course :rolleyes:) I've sent the injectors to DBW and learned that the pump piston and ball pin for...

    TDI in a Toyota pickup

    Pirate day! Update; a few things have been happening on this.... I've swapped engines on the stand with my "new" PD from Quality German Auto Parts. I pulled the PD injectors - which is a bit more work than the old school ones - so I could send both sets of injectors to DBW. I've ordered the...

    PD control with EDC15P+

    jjordan11 - Thank you very much for those diagrams - that is extremely helpful! :) oldpoopie - I know a bit about 1's and 0's as well as the electronics that make work together. Do you have any logs of the electronic i/o's and the computer stuff with it? I'm curious about digging into it to...

    Will PD150 injectors do 200 whp?

    Thank you guys for this awesome discussion. :) Really this question is for anyone who has experience pushing these 1.9L TDI's into the 150>200hp range with 200>230ft-lb of torque would be nice. However, is it realistic for long-term reliability? Would you have any idea what a 1.9L TDI could...

    Ok, thank you. :) What do you mean by "us spec injector bodies won't play nice?" -E*clipse

    PD control with EDC15P+

    Ohhh! Didn't know that! Will the Euro PD injector bodies work with the Bosio nozzles? I was going to upgrade to the power plus 1043 or maybe even the race 783's from DBW. :cool: While I'm on that topic, is there a level of sane limitation for this extra power? The reason I ask is folks...

    TDI in a Toyota pickup

    I think it would be a good idea to send the injectors to DBW. I'd like to find out what happened to them and what led up to that. I've been running a mix of 25% to 75% biodiesel. Generally I purchase it from ASTM certified suppliers. Most of it has been from Springboard biodiesel here in...

    TDI in a Toyota pickup

    I looked closer at pistons 1,2,and 3. Both 1 and 3 have a small amount of scuffing on the side near piston 2. Could the extreme overheat of piston 2 lead to the issues in pistons 1 and 3? Also, what would lead to an injector putting out such a bad spray pattern? Would using biodiesel...

    TDI in a Toyota pickup

    Yes - that one looks nice and even; something you can't say for any of the spray patterns on my pistons. :( So a bit I'm getting from the information greengeeker sent me is that these uneven spray patterns can result in hotspots on the pistons with failures like cracked pistons, etc. My...

    TDI in a Toyota pickup

    Yes, when I was running VAG-COM and trying to figure out what what happening, the injection measuring blocks were VERY imbalanced - one positive, the other negative. Actually it looks like you guys who predicted some form of piston failure were right. That #2 piston is definitely cracked with...

    cylinder 4 looks ok. The cylinder wall is in fine shape and there are no other signs of damage (yet)

    cylinder 3 doesn't look too bad except for some minor scraping on the cylinder wall.
