Hey Gypsy. Good and Bad news.
After cleaning tank, lines and filter housing as best I could, installed new OEM Filter and o-rings.
Added 180ml off Fuel Doctor nd 30lts off Fresh Diesel into the tank. (Hopefully didn’t overdo the Fuel Doctor),
, pressurised the tank to flush some clean fuel through the line before connecting to filter.
Primed and no go.
Tried and tried until virtually new battery went flat. It would occasionally have a small fire like it was trying to start. I was always having to re pressurise the filter over and over. Connected battery charger then walked away swearing, cursing and stressed. Grabbed a stubbie out of the fridge and contemplating what to do now, while wiping the tears away from my eyes.
Recharged battery this morning, give it a quick go to no avail.
Just to make matters worse, Mrs had no choice but needed to get to her daughters today for a few days.
I’m approximately 10kms from town. 1/2 hour ago I said to her, we’ll try giving it a tow up the road and back before you go. Going along trying in 2nd and 3rd, 40-50 ks., nothing. Until I said slow down and turn around and head home, I heard a rough idle
It did start. Just couldn’t hear it over the high engine RPMs and Tyre noise. Quickly got it back home before it stopped.
At least it’s running. She’s gone to daughter’s and I’m not game to turn it off.
As I said to you in a earlier post, I’m no mechanic, but am quite handy mechanically.
Use to race old HQ,s ect at speedway and always rebuilding engines and other repairs.
To me, it sounds like it’s running on 3.
You’re or anyone else’s thoughts or opinions would be really appreciated.
I’m leaning towards a blocked injector?
Surely the fuel pump would be ok or it wouldn’t run at all?
I’m leaving it running in the hope that the Doctor might help me out.
Been 3/4 of hour now and Doctors obviously not doing house calls.
Been getting revs up occasionally and holding to see if it helps.
What’s a safe RPM I can hold for and for how long?
If it’s going to help at all.
Enough rambling on. Just thought be better if everyone got the whole story.
Thanks in advance guys and gals.
