Issues Timing My Engine

18 May 2013 - 11:17 AM

hi guys i hope someone can  help  me. i had to change  the camshaft chain tensioner on my 2005 ford fiesta TDCI (mk6). After fitting the new camshaft chain tensioner I timed the engine correctly using the correct timing pins.(i also rotated the engine  by hand clockwise through 12 cycles  with no issues, everything  was sound) Unfortunately after piecing everything back together i realised that i had forgot to put the cam shaft oil seal on!!!! so i began taking everything  off again. fitted the new oil seal and again put everything back  together. this time however i could only get about half a turn from the crankshaft i took the belt off and the crankshaft with nothing attached to it and it still wouldn't rotate. I don't know if the valves are hitting or getting jammed on something I've read up online that the fuel pump sprocket needs to be taken out then the engine should be timed and then put back in (apparently the fuel pump runs on a chain which is connected to the camshaft.)

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance guys!

Oil Pressure Gauge Help!

02 February 2013 - 11:10 AM

Hi there guys i' hoping someone can help me i have a 2005 ford fiesta zetec s tdci and ive just put a new engine in due to the previous engine failing. ive just finished fitting the new engine in but the oil light is coming up but when hold the revs up slightly the light goes off. so i bought an oil pressure gauge along with a boost gauge and a oil temperature gauge. but the t-piece ive bought separately doesn't fit into the engine block (its a t-piece)

so has anyone here fitting gauges to their fiesta? please could someone back to me regarding this.
Thanks in advance
