converting a TD5 10p block to an 18p

Can one change a 10p block to a 18p block Im in a dilema with redoing a 10p. I may need a new head and injectors but it works out much cheaper to buy a 18p as injectors are halve the price. Even with a new computer for the 18P. anyone done this or are there lots of other components that are different?

purchasing new injectors

After spending some time in ICU and various tests from fuel pumps to turbos to wiring harnesses the last is installing new injectors. Any ideas about best suppliers. Some of my inquiries all indicate recon injectors. Iv been told to stay away from them. Any contacts would be appreciated

Re: 160 CAN error fault active?

Hello Dave

The error code - 160 - came from a generic computer reader. not a landy specific reader

Spend a grand on injector harness (on landy mechanic advise from George) no change

Telephonic diagnosis = injectors

Grumpy factor soring

Re: what to look for after possible overheat

Will it be set in permanent on and needs to be reset or is there some other clever thing it does. Good idea to have a diagnostics test. Will do that. So far all seems fine. new belt on with...
