diesel knocks are from 2 things
bad injectors and incorrect pump timimg
bad injectors dribble fuel into the cylinder causing combustion to far advanced so the piston is slammed against the cylinder wall
incorrect pump timing does the same thing
get it inspected by an accredited diesel specialist shop or engine failure will occur

I have a Toyota Hilux 2.8 diesel 3l engine injector pump has great pressure on only 3 cylinders but number 4 is lacking pressure enough to make it miss , what can corse this problem

You didn't say but presumably the engine uses a DPA type or distributor type injection pump.

In this case the injector line pressure is governed by the condition and setting of each injector. If the break-off pressure of an injector is set to 80 atmospheres that pump element will produce a pressure of 80 atmospheres.

If one injector becomes "soft" and worn so the break-off pressure has fallen to 20 atmospheres for instance, or if the injector sticks open, the pressure generated by the pump will be either 20 atmospheres or virtually nothing.

When a conventional diesel engine develops a misfire, best practice is to ensure valve clearances and suchlike are in order, the compression pressure is good and then independently test the injector (and heater plug).

If everything is in order the pump should be removed for testing, repair and recalibration.

How do I install diesel fuel injection pump

Diesel injection pumps need to be timed to the engine. You have to set the engine to top centre on number one cylinder and compression stroke, then set the injection pump to number one, should be a line to line up or a pin to install to set pump to number one. Then install the pump and bolt it on

Ssangyong rexton 2005 Injectors Delphi,,,, are there alternatives, mine at 50000km are all broken and cant be fixed according to Barbagellos The dealer is asking $8000.

talk with a diesel pump specialist about alternative aftermarket injectors but I think that you will find that $2,000.00 per injector will be reasonable for 4 cylinder On isuzu diesel the injectors are around $6,000.00 per unit.. The secret is to ensure only ultra clean, good quality diesel fuel is used. The injectors and pump cannot handle any water in the fuel.

Volvo Penta marine diesel 2003T engine has diesel in sump

I owned one diesel engine. I would say the engine siphoned the diesel after it was shut off.
The throttle controls may not be closed. The injectors were tested for their opening and spraying, but were they tested for closing and sealing when off? Diesel fuel lines maintain a vacuum or they get air bubbles. Cooling cylinders create a draw right into the crankcase. Last idea-crankcase vent clogged

Diesel fuel pump/installation

If we're talking about the thing that has a pipe to each of the cylinders on your engine then the answer is Yes, your injector pump must be correctly timed in order for the engine to run properly. This is the part of the diesel that does what a distributor on regular car engine does, namely ignition timing.

The exact procedure for setting the timing depends on what model of engine you have, get a manual from Perkins to be sure.

That said it usually goes like this:
1 - make sure the engine has the correct cylinder at TDC, this makes the gear connected to the camshaft be in the correct position.

2 - Set the pump at the correct position, this will either involve looking at a mark in a window on the pump (standyne pumps), or looking at the keyway in the shaft of the pump, etc.

3 - Bolt the pump into place on the engine making sure the gears/drive meshes nicely. Connect all the fuel lines to the pump.

4 - purge the injectors by loosening each fuel line at the cylinder end and cranking the engine until fuel comes out of the pipe, then tighten it back up.

5 - Crank the engine and start it, check the rpm.
