Finally managed to get a second hand idler gear with bearing, I put everything together but the vehicle would not start. When taking the gear off the injector pump shaft there was no key to relocate the gear back on the exact position. The shaft and gear is tapered. Luckily my friend the mechanic had marked it before taking it off. Once it was back on, the vehicle started first time, but I feel the timing is still not exactly on the spot. Anyway I drove the vehicle down the road and once the engine revs were above 2,000 and constant the engine check light came on again. I believe that it was coincidental that I discovered the idler gear bearing worn something that would have caused me a lot of damage. I now need to connect the analyzer to read the code. I need to check the crankshaft sensor and the transfer pump. Has anybody got any advice? I havent checked the egr as I can go well over the 3000rpm and travel well over the speed limit when driving harsh. However I will check that when I do the easy checks first.
