    The challenge is to get a box with the correct inlet and outlet orientation for the mounting position.

    But yes, generally the round filters are all Donaldson concepts. Works the same way.

    It is really hard when work interferes with so much higher priorities.

    I am currently working my butt off as I work a notice two months, so there is a lot that needs my attention.

    As I pushed 7 days a week for months now, I could not put in a full Saturday and Sunday again and we did about 4 hours each day this weekend.

    This week was again a bit of a dead week, but Cobus managed to tidy up many of those patient little bits.

    Over the weekend, we fixed all the remaining parts and too patience to route the wiring harnesses so that there is as little spaghetti as possible.

    All the radiator pipes, accept for one is fixed (another pipe not supplied...) and we are very close to swing the motor for the first time.

    All that still remains is that the wire to the crank position sensor broke off as it was brittle, and the plug has to be replaced.

    Holding my breath for this week.

    Fuel pump runs, Motor swings, but no fire yet.

    Battery on charge over night.

    Lets see today.

    fuel bleeding is a bit of a pain on TD5s.

    While on charge to make sure the battery lasts, bridge the terminals for the fuel pump relay, and leave it to run for about half an hour. This is far more effective than doing the normal “pump the pedal to the floor 5 times bleed”

    then, once you are pretty sure there is no more air, turn the ignition on, pump the pedal to the floor 5 times slowly, but on the 5th keep your foot to the floor, and keep it there while cranking the motor over.

    The 2 times I did my head, I did the 5 pumps trick a few times, and then used a squirt of Quick Start. Worked a treat.

    Nope. No Start yet.

    We had to trace some pipes and the previous owner messed around at the fuel filter.

    We only get flow on the LP side of the pump.

    Today I will get Cobus to remove the fuel filter housing and make sure the orifice in there for the one return line, is open and that the fuel filter is new.

    If that does not work, then we will have to remove the tank and take the fuel pump out.

    have you got the white air bleed off in the outer back barb fitting
    also there is a red beak not return valve also in the filter, normaly that is on the inner front barb, where I seen them, this is on the return line from fuel cooler, some say it should not be installed there but on the inner back barb, which is the LP supply to filter, so when you stop engine it helps stop fuel running back to the fuel tank in the LP line

    I have no problem with a "Boer maak 'n plan"...

    But FFS, it can't be the standard permanent repair.

    I still cannot figure out how this TD5 got diesel. The pipes were totally misconfigured - and butchered for that matter.

    We will replace all the fuel hoses with a high quality 8mm hose this morning, all the way from the tank to the engine bay, as well as all the pipes between the filter and the tank.
