Hello guys, I am in the final stretch of my diesel build. I have done a few builds in the past but this is my first diesel build. I got a few questions so please bear with me here. Also bear in mind that I am working with an engine that I can hardly find any information on AT ALL.
Engine is out of an 84 Ford Escort, going into an 86 Mazda pickup, Mazda engine code RF 2.0.
Ok first what hopefully will be an easy part. The vacuum pump that I have doesn't have a sensor that cuts off once a certain pressure is reached. In addition I had to scrap the original reservoir (was damaged.) So the first parts question is where can I find a sensor that I can run into the relay that cuts the vacuum pump off when it reaches an appropriate level (pump currently can pull 25 in/hg)
Second, since I am going to be fabricating a reservoir, what capacity would be recommended? I am thinking of converting an old propane tank (the small one plumbers use for soldering) for the reservoir and will have a gauge that will tell me how much vacuum is present.
A while ago I came across a T-25 garret turbo out of a 90 Grand Prix. The engine was originally a NA engine but figured that I wanted a more useable power range. The pistons, rods and crank were forged from the factory, and it would seem that this block was built to handle a turbo (oil jets under pistons, additional ports for the supply and dump for the turbo). In addition I am running this with a copper head gasket and had the block o-ringed. The whole thing was rebuilt. The thickness of the factory head gasket new is .056" and the copper one is .090" with the deck milled .025-.026" during machining. My question here is would the T-25 that I pulled from the Grand Prix going to be a good fit, would it require too much RPM to spool, or any other thoughts on this?
The final question I don't seriously expect to find an answer here, or written in a language other than Japanese Kanji. But, on the off chance, does anyone happen to have an electrical and/or vacuum routing diagram for the injector pump from an 84-86 Ford Escort Diesel? Everywhere I ask this it feels like I'm
Thank you for any answers that are provided.
p.s. build thread for additional notes:
p.p.s. I even have the Ford factory manual for the 85 escorts, and there is little to no information about the diesels in there with exception to torque specs.
