1.8 to 1.8 tdi help


Recommended Posts

hello. finally getting round to getting my van running as ive got this week off

ive put the 90bhp ic tdi 1.8 in my mk5 van after the bigends went in my normal 1.8.

ive changed the pump to a different one after i cut into the unions when trying to get to the stop solenoid.

Timed up ok, turns over but no fuel to injectors though the leak back from injector 1 seems to be working.

i have wired the start stop solenoid and glow plugs up to switches, solenoid is clicking.

the cav pump i have had a solenoid on the front of it with 2 wires. does this need a live feed?

also there are 5 wires out the back of the pump, do these need wiring up too?

any help would be great as ive been faffing around with this for ages with no joy.

was contemplating getting a bosch pump and trying that and run it on a bit of veg.

There are a few guys around who have done this conversion, tho I havn't myself, I used to have a van, which had the conversion done. Guy called Jay, knocking around on facebook, he's red hot on diesel conversions, he's up in Yorkshire, RAM audio, I think. Or have you done it now? If so, how did you wire it, cos I've got a TD, sitting outside, ready to go in my van, but the wiring is putting me off :-)
