Nearly rolled Safari, driver's side, issues?

Postby MihiT » Tue Aug 15, 2017 7:29 am

I'll post some pictures for everyone to laugh at later. Basically I was out spotlighting, got to close to the edge of the bank/track, it fell, I fell. I think it's mostly resting on the axles.
Engine was still running fine, aprox 45-50• angle.
I know that if these go right over on the driver side the injector pump can flood with oil and f@ck up, but is that likely with just lots-of-angle? or anything else I should do before cranking it again?

45 shouldn't be an issue. Stick a socket on the crank and turn it over by hand once or twice just to make sure.

If your worried, which you shouldnt be as it's a TD42, you could pull the electrical plug off the fuel pump, then crank the engine until your oil pressure lights goes out.
Then connect pump back up and you be confident you have oil and oil pressure when she fires up.

The problem your referring to about oil in the injector pump is whaaaaat??????????

There's no physical way oil can get into the pump, even if the front shaft seal is shagged!!!.

What your talking about is when you roll the truck, oil can come through the crank breather hose and into the a air filter. When you tip it back on its wheels and fire it up, the engine runs on the oil, pumps out clouds of smoke revs it's nuts off, then either runs out of oil and settles down, or the engine self destructs :)

Pulled the bitch back. Cracked all the injectors and cranked it, but probably didn't have to.

DieselBoy, not too sure about that pump thing but I heard it a while ago, it's okay to roll them counter-clockwise but not clockwise...
Best not to roll them, though. :cry:
