This was something that I wondered when i used to do the pedal dance but always forgot to ask, is there any indication that the ECU and fuel pump have been put into learning mode? Does a light come on/turn off? Does it stop flashing the engine codes or do you just have to assume that it has done it?

Also, agree with Danny're a legend! Never met you but i'm sure you've deserved a pint or two from me!

Hi all, that is top info and nice and clear. After performing a timing chain repair I would just like to add a bit about the ERG blanking. Due to the amount of carbon contaminated thick oily mess heald within my inlet manifold blanking is only half the job. To get a positive result and allow the cylinders to breath uniformly can I suggest that the inlet manifold needs to be removed and cleaned throughly. My no1 cylinder was almost completely blocked! How and fuel was being used efficiently is a wonder. There was so much crud also heald around the ports into the head the air flow to at least the first two cylinders would have been drastically reduced causing chocking and no doubt a reduction in power. Yes it will take a couple of hours but well worth it from what I saw in mine. I hope this helps as the ERG blaning is the start, not the cure.

Thanks Keith - plenty to think about there, and when I get a moment I will go through the list. By "waste gate" I meant EGR, which I thought was doing the same thing as a waste gate. Shows how much I know about automotive engineering - a tad different from the marine version...
I guess you consider I should blank it off, even though I am in a hot country? I'm not bothered about emissions in this country providing the truck doesn't smoke.
