I have just bought a Mk1 1.8 TD only to find it is kicking out lots of white smoke when idling, even after long journeys. Reading this site makes me think it's the advance solenoid (there is only 1 click when i turn the ignition). What I'm confused about is this:

1) Does the mk1 diesel engine have an advance solenoid? (all the problems mentioned on this site seem to be for mk2 I think)

2) Is it the same type as for the mk2/ Endura engines, or am I going to end up buying the wrong one if I'm not careful?!!

3) Any idea where to find one? Ebay doesn't have one at the moment. I have tried various Ford parts stockists and no-one seems to know what I'm talking about.

I'd be really grateful for advice
