Re: Temperamental Starter Motor

I had this fault and you would first think of volt leakage. My fault was that the signal tab on the solenoid had not been made on to the field coil of the solenoid correctly in manufacture. ​​​​​​This was a 'Brand New Bosch' TDi starter, which was a new addition to the van purely as an upgrade to pr...

Re: Engine only runs under too much advance

Have you checked your battery voltage static, running at 1500rpm and then at 4000? The reason is that if your alternator is failing due to brush wear, Its voltage performance will decline with revs/demand.

I told the guy that it urgently needed a cam belt before he used the truck, as it had been due for change when...

Re: She's a bit "grabby" (oo-er)

Do you mean that the back wheels are binding into the gravel? or are you spinning up the rear wheels without getting traction from your front wheels?
