having issues with the fan staying on for the life of me i cant source the fault changed the coolant sensor and then thought it was the plug to the ecu but the ecu is reporting the right temps the fan module looked like it had seen better days so swapped it was better but still came on to early and full speed with no shut down after it drop below 85c
only thing left to look at is the a/c pressure switch

found the issue with the fan the a/c pressure switch was reading 2600kpa so it was putting the fan on to try and get the gas pressure down simply unplugging the sensor stopped the fan

WP_20180116_14_06_26_Pro.jpg

gear packs back in
WP_20180116_14_16_39_Pro.jpg

case all back on had to stop for the rain
WP_20180116_15_15_01_Pro.jpg

went for a test drive and the stick no longer moves when pulling away and the inherent whine has gone
few more jobs to do fix the heat shields at the rear with penny washers they have rotten thru also need to find the clunk at the front

all good new seal and csc

had an issue with the high pressure pump again it seems the main bearing for the input shaft had come out of the case just enough to stop the internal pistons being pushed leading to 360kpa and not 5000+kpa
green stud lock and a 10ton press soon fixed it all back o 100% again
