    IP Adjustments

    Just a little off topic, I advanced the timing on my Musso, three turns CCW on the adjustment, (loosen the four pump mounting bolts first). Made a huge difference, pulls much better over the whole rev range, still no rocket ship but it no longer feels gutless. Well worth the effort, it took about 1/2 hour but most of that was finding the correct bolts, they are hard to see. If I did another one i could do it in 5 minutes.

    Re: IP Adjustments

    Sounds good. My 2006 Musso performance improved markedly once I adjusted the Full load screw out one turn.
    I used the instructions at www.ssangyongclub.co.uk/forum/index.php?/topic/152-diesel-tuning/&
    The middle screw on the engine side of the IP rear plate is a security feature which has a metal cup under the screw head and a plastic plug, held in by the metal cup, to prevent access to the IP controls.


    I was able to remove the plastic plug after a lot of muted swearing and grazed knuckles and used the same torx driver on all 6 screws to remove the cover. Needless to say, the plastic plug and the metal cup were discarded when re-fitting the cover.
    Don't forget to catch the oil which comes out when you loosen the cover screws. It can make a big mess for so little oil spilt.

    Re: IP Adjustments

    Thanks Tony, Im going to do that next. I read that the Musso engine is retarded from the factory and only gets worse as the timing chain stretches. The engine even sounds better, at idle it now has that muted diesel rattle a bit like a merc. Now that i look again at the back off the pump I can see that plug your talking about. Is there any way to put a PDF on this forum? I have a factory Musso manual if you would like a copy.

    Re: IP Adjustments

    Just pull the back cover off and adjusted the full load screw 3/4 turn CCW and turned the idle down one turn. The Musso goes better again. The only problem now is the engine won't turn off..... sigh. good thing it's not an auto. I've possible knocked off a vacuum line or something. Job for another day I'm still recovering from pneumonia so I'm about done for today.
    Tony If you haven't adjusted the timing I would recommend it, for my Musso it gave at least equal power gains to turning up the fuel. its a 2005 with 200 kms

    That is one thing I need to act on. I will set some time aside to act on it now that you have written up the procedure.

    Re: IP Adjustments

    I have the Ssangyong factory manual and have made a link for everyone. I was going to put it in the repair manual thread but it has been closed.
    So here are 1500 pages of it,
