    Ok, Will have to take it to the garage for this, I don't have the tools to do a proper test on it.

    I guess, this is pointing to piston rings or bent valves? I'm going more piston rings due to I have noticed I'm losing some oil now!

    It could be a compression ring problem but it certainly not a common problem, my guess is the cam belt was timing screwed up and it has bent a valve. Any decent garage should have a diesel compression tester and the M10x1 adapter for the glow plug hole. Once removed, I don't recommend reusing glow plugs, they can easily snap and ruin your day.
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Ok, this makes sense especially as the timing was out it could have caused a fair bit of damage.

    In you opinion would it be worth fixing it all, jibbing a new (used) engine in or just cutting my losses and moving on with the cost of labour etc.

    Finding a good used engine will be difficult, get a compression test done first.
