Purchased an isuzu (Holden rodeo in Australia; 2.5L direct injection diesel)
that starts very well, has little smoke under load and gets 43 miles/gallon.
Bit of white smoke when idling cold. Only ever seen one other with same
motor and it had a sweet exhaust smell too. Did these always have a rich
diesel exhaust odour when new?
Checked pump timing through inspection plate infront of injector pump drive
gear and the lower gear was one tooth anticlockwise of dot. However,
without cover completely off, it is possible that the gear on the crankshaft
is also one tooth CCW out.
