Mark :

Hello, my name is Mark and I will try help you with this.

Mark :

I don't understand why you would want to.

Mark :

If the replacement engine is timed correctly and was running ok, why would you want to change it.

JACUSTOMER-hh7v3xca- :

Because the casings that holds the fuel injection pump wont fit because the cam drive is too big

Mark :

Can't you get the correct pump from the exchange engine?

Mark :

Do both engines have the same engine code?

JACUSTOMER-hh7v3xca- :

Yes

JACUSTOMER-hh7v3xca- :

The cam belt from the old engine has 2 teeth more than the replacement engine has

Mark :

What are the engine codes?

JACUSTOMER-hh7v3xca- :

Sorry will have to reply tomorrow as I'm not with the engine

Mark :

I don't think you will be able to, but if you do try then make sure the crank / cam ratio is 2:1 with the new setup.

JACUSTOMER-hh7v3xca- :

Thank you very much I will get back to the suppliers and see what they have to say.

Mark :

No problem.

Mark :

Please remember to rate my assistance.

Mark :

Mark :
