    Bmc 2.2 injector timing

    I've changed the injection pump on my engine and I'm having problems getting it timed. Trial and error has improved things, better starting and less smoking. But I want to get the timing absolutely right. Obviously I don't have the factory tool to do this, is there something else I can use? Or even another method?
  2. I'm thinking of going the caustic route. I know this is bad for aluminium is not washed off, what's it like with brass and bronze? Reminds me of the time a mate dissolved his motorbike carb in caustic!
  3. The smell of gunk makes me want to puke!
  4. I want to degrease and clean my filthy engine room, I'm living in the boat so solvents or Gunk are out, I also need a powerful product as there are decades of gunge in there.

    BMC 2.2 and 2.5 crankshafts the same?

    If I can find out for sure if it fits, and find bearings to fit I might be interested. thinking it looks easier to get it re-ground as bearings are still available.

    BMC 2.2 and 2.5 crankshafts the same?

    I'm looking for a crankshaft for a 2.5 mine has spun the middle main bearing. The one below is listed for a LD van had a 2.2 fitted http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Genuine-BMC-Crankshaft-with-Bearings-Morris-Id-Van-Part-Number-28G80-3H-EB/131841165166?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649 However on closer inspection I'm not sure its the same as mine, anyone know the parts numbers and what it may be for?

    BMC Commander 2.5 pushrod

    Much appreciated, gipsy spares want a small fortune for a second hand one. Yeah a 2.5 might be a bit over the top for the canal, especially as the boat has two of them!

    If I had a time machine maybe Gipsy spares in Holland say they may be able to help, next option is a 2.2 rod if its the same length . Otherwise modifying a rod or even getting one made might be the way.

    BMC Commander 2.5 pushrod

    I have a BMC/Newage 2.5 Commander engine that was a basket case. I'm in the process of re-assembling it but I'm one pushrod short. Parts list for the engine states the part numbers as 11b.133 or AEB.414 total length of the pushrod is 242mm, I've attached a picture.

    Output shaft seal for unknown BMC gearbox

    the seal fitted fine, it compressed but was a tight squeeze. no leaks

    Output shaft seal for unknown BMC gearbox

    I'll trim the seal down till it fits. If that doesn't work i'll chew a bit of bark or animal hide till it fits. Or knitt a seal maybe.

    Output shaft seal for unknown BMC gearbox

    That sounds ok as the seal will be a tight fit, its 36mm internal not 44mm
