    Hi
    I have just purchased this and i am having starting trouble so any help from you guys would be great.
    Its the same whether cold or hot.
    Turns over Ok and sounds like she is trying to fire on 1 pot which usually causes the starter to spin off the flywheel.
    She will eventually go and runs really smooth but its if I stop to make a delivery or something I have the same palava over and over again.
    I have changed the glow plugs but to no avail. Anybody got any ideas please.
    Many thanks in advance
    Cheers
    Nigel

    It sounds like you have the beginings of a Injector fault. You need to check the leak off quantity from the injectors.

    Remove the leak off rail from the top of the injectors and clamp the pipe off to stop fuel coming up from the return line. Then you can buy the tool to connect to the injectors or make something to collect the fuel from the injectors and then crank the engine over for 10 - 20 seconds with the rail regulator unpluged to stop it starting. Measure the fuel leaked out from the injectors you should only have a few drips so any more than that points you to which injectors are faulty.
