Hi all. I am new to the forum and this is my first post so if I do something wrong feel free to let me know.

I currently have a 98 GU 2.8TD. The engine is out and stripped down. Due to lack of oil pressure on start up (no pressure) the cam seized in the head, broke the drive pin out of the cam shaft and has bent a few valves. The crankshaft thrust and oil pump drive is also worn beyond repair.

I will soon have an 06 TD42Ti with engine loom and ECM. Looking at the wiring diagrams it shouldnt be to hard to fit the ECM and get it all wired up. The only thing I am having trouble nutting out is the NATS. With the 2.8 the signal from the NATS module is sent to the ECM. On the TD42Ti it is sent to the fuel shut off solenoid. Will I be able to get the NATS module currently in the vehicle working with the TD42Ti or am I better off getting the fuel pump changed to full mechanical. Will save $500 by not getting the ECM and loom.

Thanks

Just wire the fuel solenoid to the "ign" wire (blue) on the ign barrel. Im not too clued up on the differences between the TD42 and TD42i but if i were you i would get rid of all the computer crap if you can.

Thanks for the reply. Either way I will have to do a fair bit of wiring. I liked the idea of using the ECM as it controls the glow plugs and also the electric fan for the A/C. When the engine temp gets to a certain temp it will turn the fan on even without the A/C on. I could leave the 2.8 ECM in to keep control of the glow plugs and fan but then I will have the problem of it logging faults as all the engine sensors will be disconnected. If I remove the ECM I will have to get a glow plug timer. Probably the simplest option.

I have found the answer to my problem. The solenoid on the pump of the TD42Ti is coded to the original NATS module and will not work with mine. What I can do is remove the CSOLU (coded fuel shut solenoid) from the pump and under it is a standard single wire solenoid. From what I understand the NATS on the TD42Ti has given people quite a bit of grief so it is probably best that I dont have it hooked up. Will need to come up with a good idea for a kill switch.
