Where do i start Mk11
#1
Well i have come to the last thing to change to stop my smokie Joe Dw8 and i think it must be the pump.
Changed all and sundry two or three times and still no change but evan though its not run for more than an hour in the last two weeks (only run for a few minutes after each change of injectors/leak off pipes etc etc...) there is quite a build up of glitter in the filter housing.
So i am hoping its the pump breaking down inside question is would it make it smoke so bad?.
Thanks all for the advice and will post when new pump is on.

Have you checked valve clearances?
