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. I may be misinterpreting what’s on the list. It’s the one on mad scientist hut.com or some such. It’s well known here, I’m...

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...

Do you know the PO personally, or just as a seller? If the latter you've probably found why it hasn't started in 4(6) yrs. The symptoms sound an awful lot like a seized engine.

SW Ohio. Cincy area? I'm up in the Canton area.

This one. This one I've personally witnessed when I was in India. Sketchy as hell at highway speeds, but those drivers just motored on down the highway like business as usual.

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 s...

Engine Trouble

So driving home tonight the Pinz starts belching smoke. It was night so hard to see the color. Getting home I checked the exhaust pipe and there seems to be quite a bit of oil residue coming out. Raw oil. So.... I know squat about this engine. How bad is this likely to be, and requiring what kind of...

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

Is there any particular reason you can’t just go to someplace like Summit Racing and buy Transit wheels of the 5x160 variety? What am I missing?

Re: Reverse-mount 12V alternator

Is this adding a 12v alt to the system, or replacing the 24v?

You can remove the tip sensor on the underneath side of the little buddy propane heater

Most likely just add another diesel fired in the back.
