Some issues!
« on: October 13, 2017, 10:46:15 am »
Hi guys! I bought a couple of months ago a t3 caravelle. The guy that sold it told me it has a 1.6 td jx, but my mechanic tells me it is a 1.9 tdi 1z . I will upload some pics to tell me your opinion. It also has a problem. Somewere along the way someone had the turbo pipes changed and did a sketchy job. Now its leaking oil and most likely boost. Does anyone know the specific names/codes for those tubes?

That's a 1Z, AHU, or AFN 1.9 TDI.  That part is a score.  It's hard to tell what mechanical pump was fitted to run it, though.  It does not appear to have any boost enrichment unfortunately.  The charge pipes were change because it has an intercooler whereas the JX never came with one.  The intercooler job looks poorly done though.  You would need custom pipes to keep the intercooler although I would recommend doing a better install in a manner than can actually get some airflow.

With the way that engine lays over like that you should be able to raise the rear on ramps and slide you head under it.  There should be some big numbers on the block that would say 1.6 D or 1.9 D I would venture a guess. 
Turbo and Exhaust finally on, Time for tuning!

Given that it has a TDI head odds are 99.99999999% that it is a 1.9 block.

I will lift it today and take a look after a code, also i found some custom blue pipes for turbos, hopefully those are good enough!

its obvious its a 1.9 head, its also a TDI head, TDI injectors. can you even get a TDI head to work on an AAZ block? or even a 1.6 lower end? didnt think they are compatible.

is that an old Type3? looks interesting, if not engine compartment restrictive. a good running 1.9 should have a lot of power.

A mk3 TDI head (as seen here) will bolt up to a 1.6 block.  There is a Euro market TDI piston with the correct wristpin bore, wristpin height, piston diameter, etc...  that would work in a 1.6 block in order to create a 1.6TDI.  I considered building one a while back, but the pistons are more expensive than just buying a 1.9TDI engine.  There also really no downside to the additional displacement as you really only consume more fuel when you're using the extra power.  So...  it's possible that it is a 1.6 block but that's incredibly unlikely.

Yes, it is a 1985 t3 type 25 with campervan conversion!

I am going to jack it up today and take a look under it. Iíll post some updates :)

so very 'eccentric' for ole 1.6's. like you comment its not worth the expense of the special pistons alone. i happen to wonder if the rods will take the extra power, pressure. i havent seen rod upgrades for these (1.6) motors, i suppose some of our veteran members have such connections. 1.6 rods arent hard to come by, and not exactly cheap. i happen to see the stock rods as a possible weak point, and wonder if they last long if a TDI set up is used.

Some issues
« Reply #10 on: January 16, 2019, 01:17:02 pm »
Yeah they are steel with some sort of plastic coating. Those little trucks are fairly robust and dont really give a lot of trouble. Even the automatic trans trucks are tough. Ive seen numerous with fluid that looked like motor oil and smelled like some sort of human waste runoff,still shift well and do their jobs. Only problem they actually have is that they kill a lot of power much like our era dodge trans do of the little motor.
The oil pumps will leak pretty bad front of the engine/mounted on the exterior side of the timing cover due to its mounting surface o-ring drying out and cracking. Also the exhaust manifold like to leak,usually from cracking or engine/manifold flange warping.....sometimes manifold to pipe flange.
Only electrical issues that are prevalent with them down here is the mass air meter likes to stick closed more of a mechanical issue and theres a master relay cant remember its proper name at the moment/located on the passenger side kick panel that flakes out and wont run the fuel pump or efi.
Thats about it really,or at least the things that stick out in my mind.
