hmm... So it wount be as simple as open them and refit them properly?

This is starting to be bit bad, the car is currently whitout a engine, and having a car is essential in my line of work... And its weekend, so getting any spare parts is realy difficult :(

Well, need to take a look, fortunately, i still got the the old engine right next to the new, so if it goes badly south, i guess i could take the big end bearing from the old engine, and put the new engine together. Then go poke the spare engine dealer for new bearings, drop the oilpan and change the bearings later? By this way, i would get the car running during this weekend, but... They gave 3months waranty for the engine, so i dont know how much "fidling" from my side they do accept... :/

Just to be sure: There is no locking bolt that you screw to the engine block, that locks the cranks counterbalances? Only the locking pins that you push trough the crank pulley?

you say you have left diesel in the cylinders why and how much not wanting to sound funny but are you sure your just not feeling compression when you say it locks with it being a diesl as well should imagine theres a lot more compression than when you turn a petrol engine just a thought .

I had the injectors out, so there is no compression :) And i left the diesel in the cylinders just before i was done for the day. And it did the trick. Went back on the today, and the crank spun freely, got all the accessories installed today, so tomorrow i just need to lift the new engine in place, and hope for the best :)


Btw, just out of curiosity, why is there timing mark on the high preasure pump? That would make sense if it was old dieselt, where the ignition timing was done by the pump, but on commonrail when the pump just pumps high preasure fuel, witch is divided by commonrail, and timing done by the injectors, i cant see reason why it needs to be synced whit the crank / cam :/ (ofc i did time it but made me wonder)
