    Re: TD5 blowby?

    I'm going to throw in some more here. A 1-year/100 000 km warranty on a short block is comforting, but imagine having to take that whole engine out again, strip the block and ship it back to them for...

    Re: TD5 blowby?

    Seconded. OP, this is crucial when comparing quotes. OE pistons for that engine cost R2.5k each. So it's possible, but do make sure you know what you're getting.

    Re: TD5 blowby?

    If I read the OP's post carefully, he is getting only the "short block" done at Remtec. So he still has to do his own oil pump, chain, guides, sprockets etc.

    It seems to me that you and I might almost have "twin" Landys.

    Mine's a dark metallic green with some bronze in it (don't like the colour actually). Interior is the dark beige combination.

    Re: TD5 blowby?

    @ NewLandy again, why do you suggest he resleeves instead of going oversize? Won't reboring be cheaper than resleeving? Are you proposing that he re-uses the original pistons (that would be a saving)?

    Ok, so today was the day to strip the engine block. As far as I can see, all the parts on there are the originals. In general, bores are still in good condition, but there is a bit of a wear ridge...

    Re: 300 tdi vacuum pump replacement- bad to worse

    jfh, I've been thinking about this post quite a lot as I work on my 300 Tdi engine.
