Hi all
Brought a 1hdft auto project and with a lack of power issue, ended up doing a motor rebuild and new eclipse turbo.
Currently still have the lack of power issue, starts well, revs well but when put in drive total lack of power/revs will very very slowly climb, I have a semi steep drive and will hardly go up.
All fluid levels good including auto box
Fuel supply good and have tried another primer and filter and ran off a bottle of diesel to bypass the tank pickup poss issue
Checked fuel filter at bottom of elec stop on diesel pump
All vacuum pipes are on right and no leaks from any pipework
Valve and pump timing correct
Am I into a pump rebuild ? think I have covered everything
Thanks All

Was it lacking power when you bought it before then engine rebuild?
Have you tried to adjust the fuel pump timing or fuel screw settings?

If it was lacking power when you bought it, do you know any of the maintenance history? Did the previous owner attempt to tune it?

Why did you decide to rebuild the engine?

Did you rebuild it, or have a shop do it?

Have a read through this thread

You'll get more responses asking in the diesel tech section

Ok thanks I’ll put it in the diesel section
Reason for rebuild was someone had done the head gasket and left the head bolt washers off so I thought what else have they left off as they did the big ends bearings as wheel.
Yes I have tried pump settings and fuel screws
