Bit of an update on the the dumper,the steering box was replace with a second had unit from a series 3 landy and now we are atleast going in the same direction as its pointing,
the brakes work of sorts but the linkage is a mess,
the clutch is more like a switch,
but the main concern is the black/dark grey smoke when the engine is under load like in to higher gear or just pulling off,its fine once it gets going,
Any help or info on this would be great.
Regards
Phil.

They all do that!

No smoke control on these engines, so if you floor the throttle at low rev's it will belch smoke, too much fuel for the available air volume.

Black smoke from a diesel when under heavy load is normal I'd say or is it excessive? If it's a huge cloud I'd check the over fuel on the rack.

Update on the dumper,brakes are now working as they did when it let the factory,new shoes, skimed drums,new adjusters,all clevis pins and ajustment nuts are now free and working,rear steering axle is now free to move without to much affort,need to order new trackrod ends(landrover).
it has turned out to be a very usefull little tool,although its promised referb back to showroom condition will have to wait as it is in constant use.

Phil.

If the gearbox whines re bush and re bearing it before the gear teeth get too worn. I think the designers of that gearbox ran out of space or tried to save money by using one rubbish little bush in the gearbox where a proper bearing should be. It is a very simple gearbox inside.

I thought it was a very weak point on my dumper so wanted to change the gearbox for something stronger. The engine should have been an awful 2 cylinder petter so wanted to have something my wife can start. I have now installed a transit van engine and gearbox in it.
Road speed is quite alarming

Later versions of that same gearbox use a needle roller bearing, in place of the plain bush you are referring to.
