My old ford escort turbo diesel engine gone poorly with a really bad struggling idle. Apart from this issue it ran fine. Plenty of power when driving it.
What caused this was trying to start it in winter with a frozen water pump. It didn't even turn 1 full revolution. It knocked out the timing, so i had to remove the head to check for bent valves of which there where 2 that i replaced and this is after the rebuild so something had happened to the fuel pump. I also stripped this down to inspect but didn't see anything wrong but after this start up test and subsequent replacement of the fuel pump it was obviously damaged somehow.

1927 Ford: Double-Trouble -- /BIG MUSCLE
• Gordon Tronson
In the world of hot-rodding there are few cars that are going to leave as
big an impression as this - the 1927 Ford Model T custom simply known as
"Double-Trouble". It rides on a custom-built tube chassis that's fabricated
from 1.5-inch tube. Is powered by two 4.6-liter modular V8s from Ford with
four, count 'em, FOUR Superchargers for
an approximate power output of around 1,200 hp. It also utilizes the
rear-end (inboard disc brakes and all) from an early Jaguar. It's a rolling
a Hot Wheels car and a masterpiece of engineering that is sure to make all
your naughty bits tingle.
