    Default Diesel filter housing - 2006 Isuzu kb300

    Morning everyone.


    I recently broke the bleeding screw off inside the priming pump/filter housing.

    Dealers dont supply screw only complete housing.

    Ill probably need a new housing as the chances of stripping the thread while getting broken screw out is highly likely.

    Does anyone know where i can source a generic housing as dealer wants 2k .

    Much appreciated

    Can you not drill a small hole into broken screw then use an easy out to get it out.

    That was my initial plan however Ive been warned that the threading may damage very easily and that once new screw is fitted it wont seal 100%

    I'm inclined to try anyway, trouble is sourcing this screw... Going to a few scrapyards this afternoon so lets see.

    Would anyone know why on earth an aluminium screw is used in this setup? Weight reduction on a 2006 KB 300? Hardly...

    Thanks jelo

    This is right on top of my Christmas list, if my budget allowed I would of had it yesterday.

    Done load of research on this and seems this and regular Delo 400 would render my ride bulletproof

    Try and use a small punch and hammer to see if you can start turning the broken bolt. If it moves keep on going. Drill the bolt out. If the thread gets damaged tap to a bigger size. If it leaks use thread tape or a rubber 0 ring.
    First check if the bolt does not protrude on the inside, then it would be easy to remove.

    The aluminium screw should be easy to drill out - just don't drill too deep, it should have the hole in the centre which you can guage the depth and use the hole as a drill guide. Try a lh thread drill bit on a reversable drill - usually as it bites into the screw, it will unscrew the screw.

    For the screw, try your nearest brake and clutch repair guys, they should have a box with different bleed screws.

    I agree with giolanman. Those Isuzu's(Go Big) are still almost like the original kannie doods. After that they became more modern with more electronics.

    I owned one that I bought from original owner with 310k on clock and sold it within 3 hours of listing after owning it for 7 great years. Sold with 413k on clock.

    service every 10k with delo 400 (previous owner did same but used Engen Dieselube 700). Most expensive part replaced was the starter and battery. A couple of maintenance goodies etc..

    cant agree more. I actually inherited in from my grandfather, He only put on 100k kms since 2006.

    One of my first trips was to Nelspruit pulling around 3tons. Ive done slight offroading at de wildt but man this thing works. hauling serious loads often i actually sometimes feel sorry for her.

    No idea what oils were used but i changed everything to delo400 and bot402 as researched on this forum.

    I did notice she started leaking oil slightly after a long hard trip but nothing more than a pint between services. (Im thinking that the delo might have 'cleaned' a bit more than it was supposed to)

    Otherwise im extremely happy, economy around 12k/l and very comfortable compared to other brands of similar year...

    These things hardly break unless you doe it yourself like in my case


    Thanks again guys

    Morning everyone.

    After searching for said part at numerous auto parts shops and scrapyards I was strongly advised against trying to fix it by a reputable fueling and injection parts store.

    According to them the cost associated with injector pump/injectors failing due to incorrect seal at filter housing is not worth trying to save R1800 for a new unit. Apparently air from leaking seal kills said parts. It makes sense to me and dont feel like gambling so I fitted new housing and had to charge battery due to all the failed starting attempts.

    Started within a couple of turns this morning and all good!
