The Left Engine Block

Step 01

Place the Fuel Pump onto the side of the Fuel Injection Pump, guiding the peg into the hole (circled below):

Secure from behind with one (1) MP screw:

I love the little Bosch tag they put on it:

Step 02

Position the Fuel Injection Pump on the outside of the Left Engine Block:

Attach from the inside with two (2) MP screws.

One of the holes in my Left Engine Block was not completely drilled through, but I just poked a screwdriver through it and it opened right up:

Step 03

Insert the Support into the hole on the Left Engine Block, as shown:

Secure from the inside with one (1) MP screw:

Step 04

Insert the wide end of the Injection Pump Linkage into the Bearing Support.

Note the hole for the small pin (circled below):

Secure with one (1) MP screw from underneath:

Place this assembly onto the Left Engine Block with the small end of the linkage down in the slot, as shown:

Secure from the inside with one (1) MP screw:

Step 05

Position the Flywheel Cover on the base of the Left Engine Block, guiding the pin into the hole (circled below):

Secure from the inside with one (1) MP screw:

Step 06

Insert the Injection Pipes (Cylinder 5 & 6) into the two rear holes in the top of the Fuel Injection Pump. Then, press the free ends into the holes at the upper edge of the Left Engine Block.

It may be easier to first organize the pipes as shown below, and then use tweezers to install:

Repeat this step for the Injection Pipes (Cylinders 3 & 4):

Repeat this step again for the Injection Pipes (Cylinders 1 & 2):

Thoughts


Finally a phase with a whole bunch of things to do! I am enjoying the little details included with the engine. Only the Left Engine Block is metal in this phase, the rest of the parts are all plastic.

Running Total of screws used so far: 19
