Re: Sitting 4+ years, checklist for resurrection...

Thanks for the reminder about the SDP site. It’s a good
source of “how to’s”. Though I don’t see a starter ref there
looks like a part for the starter.

Cheers,

Re: Sitting 4+ years, checklist for resurrection...

Dono, haven't seen a compatible parts list other than the one
on Jim's Goatwerks Website -- and a starter is not listed. If
you can find this other list it would good to share.

Re: Sitting 4+ years, checklist for resurrection...

Starter sounding a bit more like a possibility, given the PO's comments. A stuck pinion gear, possibly a bad wedged solenoid. Again most Alternator/Starter rebuild shops can handle this starter. It's a 24V Bosch, it's a pretty common housing, bushings, and pinion, with the exception of the solenoid,...

Re: Sitting 4+ years, checklist for resurrection...

Doesn't sound good. If it were me, I'd pull the plugs to see if Manual cranking becomes easier. If not then the next step would be peering into the cylinders with a borescope. It really should be relatively easy to turn by hand with the plugs out. One other thing I'd look at is to see if the starter...

Re: CA Residents - CARB Rules Have Changed Again.....

Anything extra needed before getting title transferred and registered in CA? Ya, as Dirty Harry would have said "Do you feel lucky" (loud ringing bell in the background). Just don't transact directly with the DMV, you never know who's going to service you and ask questions, raise concerns, and pote...

Re: Sitting 4+ years, checklist for resurrection...

If you use the Battery cut-off switch that would explain it. No parasitic paths to discharge the battery. Batteries sitting in any vehicle are subject to being discharged by tiny amounts of current for all the electronics in their standby state, only millamps but it's enough to get the voltage under...

Re: Sitting 4+ years, checklist for resurrection...

Well sounds like your batteries are weak too :// If you think there's a gear skip it's gonna be on the ring gear not the starter most likely. But you can confirm that by inspecting the teeth with the top bell housing cover removed -or- with the starter pulled. But I'd hold off on figuring that for a...

Re: US Ford transit wheels fit the 712k!!!!!

Well a number of people have flipped over to Transit wheels, the BHP fits. Would love to hear from someone out there about their observations on thread engagement. Just seems a bit on the marginal side to suite me. The reason why these Wheels are of interest is the bead humps which are not present o...

Re: Engine Trouble

Could be simple could be a whopper -- need more info to help. Did the engine also run really crappy, skipping, needing some throttle to keep running? And BTW don't run the engine at this point W/O figuring out what's wrong.... If you have the flex connection between the headers to heat exchanger, ta...

Re: US Ford transit wheels fit the 712k!!!!!

The issue is not the Bolt hole pattern, that's on the money. The issue is the stud thread engagement. The wheel I bought is from one of the top tier after market Wheel manufactures, "Road Ready Wheels". Supposedly 100% to OEM specs. Do you have Transit Wheels on your rig? If so please measure the st...

Re: Sitting 4+ years, checklist for resurrection...

One thing you will find is that a Pinz does not like to sit idle for an extended period of time. They need to be worked to run well. So don't get worried or frustrated, your in the Onion peeling period, one damn problem to solve after another -- but you will get there. Once you get this rig in order...

Re: Sitting 4+ years, checklist for resurrection...

With the plugs pulled get a borescope down in there and take a peak at top of the pistons. Inspect the cylinder walls as well. If you don’t have a borescope they are cheap and on amazon a worthwhile investment. With the plugs out you should also be able to crank by hand with ease. And...18V is a pro...

Re: Sitting 4+ years, checklist for resurrection...

Check the ground and power connections to the Starter, it take a boatload of current so a loose connection could have a large voltage drop and thus weak at cranking. If all looks good then -- To eliminate the possibility that you have a wedged piston. Put in neutral, get a 27mm (or 1 1/16') socket o...
