    You will need the crank and cam locking tool set which Laser do under their number 3978 and you can get this for around 25. Then you need a cam belt kit with water pump and a camshaft kit with lifters and cam oil seal, you are going to have to chance it re-using the rocker arms but they must be reset.

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Thank you both once again. One follower top is concave and has a small hole in it like your pic. The corresponding cam lobe is almost flat. Parts ordered but doubtfully arrive before Tuesday. Tried uploading a pic but keeps failing but as I said it's similar to your pic anyway. I suppose I'll have to do some gardening over the week end, DAMN.

    Remember ALL the bolts you remove are one time only and MUST be replaced.

    You mean the injector rocker arm basic setting

    Theoretically you should lock it at TDC 1, pictures 3 and 4 to make sure the timing is 100% spot on, the remove the tools.



    Fit a dial gauge with the contact on the rocker arm and turn the engine clockwise until you see full lift on 1



    Gently wind the adjuster down until you feel a firmish stop.



    Wind the adjuster back 180 degrees



    The little yellow marks on the pulley are where I mark the start and end of lift for the cylinder so I can see the centre, i.e max lift



    I use a dial indicator



    Then repeat
