    Electric fuel pump

    Apart from originality I would not know why not. You can even use both. The electric pump will prime the engine better ( and give a more constant pressure) and you probably need to keep the vacuum pump ( for braking assistance). Succes groeten Duco

    revised engine hard to turn over

    Yes, Could do that, but than I have to fix the leaking wheel cylinder first. Will need brakes. Also, My area is not very suited to do that. Update: bought a professional big battery loader as a first step. The battery was loaded with the small loader, but the new one immediately started. I was...

    revised engine hard to turn over

    OK, point taken. Will take care and only use an extra 6V. The cables are 50mm2. So very large ( I think that is your 00 gauge). Also the connection needs to be real tight I tried to upload a smal mp4 with the engine (trying to) turn over. With plugs in etc, and only 6,1 Volt. But it is not...

    revised engine hard to turn over

    I used the 12 volt only a few seconds as the cable was bad. I like the idea of the waterpump. Did not think about that ( BTW there has not been any cooling fluid in the engine. That would be the last step before trying to start. Still think about "waterless"). I had the generator off recently...

    revised engine hard to turn over

    Yes, Thanks I took the plugs out today and found that there still was oil on top of the pistons. I can turn the engine, it only takes enorm effort (>100 Newton).. Read the book today and found that maybe a 320 starter is a bit more forceful. ( would it fit?) but also al the basic checks (...

    revised engine hard to turn over

    Thanks for the idea's. Some details: - It turned over ok when done. - approx 5 years ago ( 7 after the rebuild) The starter did turn it but it was not very fast ( not enough to start) - At that time a added some oil in the cylinders ( and moved it), 2 years ago I even gave every cyl a squirt...

    revised engine hard to turn over

    Hi All, I am a bit further and would like your idea regarding my hard to turn engine. It is a 263 of the last year. It was revised in 2008 and all this time I turned it over ( by hand) regularly. During the revision everything was done professionally with good new parts, by experience staff...

    ignition warning light on Generator

    Update and new issue. I do not know what did it, but the warning light for the ignition lights up with the GEN connection as earth. As the Car does not run, I cannot check if it dims when the generator starts to work. But that is a later worry. This afternoon I worked on the starter solenoid as...

    ignition warning light on Generator

    Todd, The text of your doc is very good. Does it maybe also explain the working of the old solenoid relay? Am I right assuming that 3 and 4 switch 1 to 2? thanks in advance Duco

    ignition warning light on Generator

    Thanks Todd, Yes, I also thought I wired it wrong, but it is in the right place. I will have another look. Maybe there is something else. GEN makes sense. Maybe I leave it disconnected until all other issues are fine. Yes, you are right. Relais (relay) D is in place. It is a more modern...

    ignition warning light on Generator

    Hi Bob, I looked twice, but only found the charge indicator which I presume to be the Amp meter. Which I have and which works fine. But no charge light. I have the 52 book so all the diagrams. I kept my installation 6 Volt and still have the generator. All the diagrams I found, assume a...
