Are all the pulleys alligned? No spacer missing for the new pump or owt?

 

I was right in thinking the pump might be mismounted & putting the pulleys out of line then.

Damn I'm good at this 'spot the daft mistake over the internet' game.

Aye I fucked up. I've read about Bosch to Lucas swaps many times before and must have missed the bit about swapping the studs. Y u no fit Bosch to all XUDs?
It's starting and running sweetly now and I'm pleased the cooling fans kicked in to stop it overheating at idle last night.
There's still plenty to do but at least the engine is sorted now.
One annoying thing is the light on the dash for the key and incessant beeping, I hope removing the bulb in the dash might kill it.
Thanks to Richard for saving the day, I don't think I'd have worked it out on my own.

Indeed it does.
Replacing the wishbone bushes has made the front wheels a bit knock kneed, it's very unpleasant to drive even at low speeds around the yard.
I guess the tracking was set with worn bushes, the track rod ends are fairly recent.
It also needs tyres, the exhaust connected and various gubbins reconnected in the engine bay.
Dishwasher tablet coolant flush as well - the contents dribbling out of the heater matrix when it was disconnected were disgusting.

RE the immobiliser light, will it not go off if you extract the chip from your old key and sellotape it somewhere near the ignition?

Fuck the light, get the BOOOST on!

But seriously yes, hiding the chip near the ignition should fix it

The chip is near the ignition, it's in the key. I guess it's whinging because the immobiliser isn't present.
I wouldn't be so bothered if it was only a light but it's beeping constantly as well.

Is it possible to reconnect the immobilizer to give it something to find?

I've a feeling the mentions of the studs, of which there are many, tend to occur in the "I've changed the pump and now it runs like shit" threads rather than the "how do I change the pump" threads that you would have been looking at.

The beep is built into the clocks though (I think).

You could whip them out and see if the beeper can be disabled/removed, may cause wobblers elsewhere though cos multiplex/bsi.

Do the early vans have multiplex?
I thought it was only the second generation?

Aye I don't think this one is modern enough. It doesn't even have an ECU like later DW8s.

Now a brake pipe is burst, I can't see where it's coming from because it's all wet from driving through puddles. FFS!

 

Seems to drive okay at least, seems nippy even without the intercooler and air intake plumbed in.

The DW8 speedo connector plugs into the XUD sender but it doesn't seem to work. Double FFS.

Brakes only slow you down, and no speedo is a recognised* defence against speeding charges;)

Reverse the polarity? Or swap the new sender with the old, if they're similar sizes?

Swapping the sender might be the way forward but it's a pig to get at.

Did you ever drive the Xsara fast enough to see if the speedo worked on it?
