Has that fixed your problem with the smoke?

Well it only ever smoked with the very 1st startup of the day on a COLD start so I haven't been able to find out yet.  I'll be trying it tomorrow & I'll report back.  :ph34r:

Give it a good run now that you've serviced it to help clear all the crap from the engine.

The new glow plugs will stop the smoke on start up and the rest of the work will make the engine much happier.
Make sure you give it a good tune ;)

My baby is back...no smoke & 10 mins on motorway (once up to temp) at 4000 rpm. 6 monthly filters & oil from now on. Still got the antifreeze to drop & flush. I couldn't get the drain plug to budge & after having to force the old original glow plugs out I didn't fancy faffing with the bottom rad hose.  It's already got Ford long life in it so it's not urgent. Roll on the LED's, lol.
