Had the freewheel alternator pulley replaced today and that made a really big difference on the judder. It is still there but I don't notice it as much as before.
Perhaps there are other pulleys with vibration dampers that are failing.

Another ting I noticed is that when I started and stopped the Diesel engine, it shocked violently. But after I replaced the alternator pulley it is much smoother when starting and stopping.

I ordered a Pressure Control Valve (PCV) today from Merlin Diesel and it is a genuine VDO part Made in Germany. So it should be of good quality. Part number A2C59506225.
When I have replaced it I will post the result. Fingers crossed.
