    Getting to the 98% point…
    1. Head reinstalled, valve cover, etc
    2. Injectors, glow plugs, rail, etc
    3. Intake manifold
    4. Exhaust manifold, turbo, etc
    5. Timing belt et al installed, manually turned it over and it felt real nice;
    6. Fuel lines reinstalled, filter, etc;
    7. AC compressor back in place; (though mine is dead)
    8. Drained and refilled engine oil/coolant
    Remaining is the air filter and associated intake hoses, vacuum hosts, etc.

    Yes and my 1st instinct is to put one in. Then I started looking at the timing belt idler setup. What does the pin do, in addition to acting as a locator during assembly?

    Moved the main text to the pin thread.

    Thanks

    Does it stop the tension spring from torquing the bracket?

    One of the injector pipes is leaking at the injector, that is tonight's project.

    I've had that happen to me. Only way to fix it is to order a new pipe. Basically the fitting gets permanently deformed from over tightening.

    You might be lucky and have something stuck in there that's not making a good seal.

    I’m really hoping it is simply not tight enough.

    They really don't need to be tightened that much to hold pressure. Take it apart and check the mating surfaces, that's your best bet instead of over tightening.

    Removed and cleaned the ends of the pipes, reinstalled, and she runs smooth as silk!

    Sorry this happened to you and glad things are gtg after all that work you had to do. Maybe I missed this detail while reading your thread, did you ever go back to the original mechanic after this occurred and despite not really knowing the root cause, did he help you make it right?

    I did not: it was not that kind of commercial relationship and I did not believe that he was the root cause.
