hey all

after getting my brakes a little more sorted, i find a new problem . . . a diesel leak.

personally im blaming all this bio diesel that is put in with regular diesel as its just cleaning out all the crap that has up till now been keeping everythingsealed.

i seam to be leaking a small ammount of diesel from the throttle, the top side is clean but the underside has evidence of diesel (as well as the side of the engine).

got a 4l turbo perkins phaze how do i go about fixing this ?

thanks for any help

mike

as mummy says, clean the pump and try to find out exactly where the leak is.

yeah seam to have fixed it

found that the heater matrix pipe was leaking a little then it was dribbling down the engine picking up dirt and oil, - so when i was investiagting the leaking liquid it didnt smell, feel and look like coolant (got yellow coloured coolant) and at the same time it didnt seam like diesel.

i got a little over paranoid as i was sorting the lift pump at the same time, and didnt think things through too much . . . my bad.
