If it either clunks and doesnt turn over or does nothing with the battery ok then i'd say starter/solenoid. Hit it with a big mallet. Check the earth straps. If it turns over but doesn't start it could be the connection on the fuel cutoff solenoid or fuel pump Sometimes it's just the battery is shag...

Once these old buses get the tinworm it's a losing battle. Its a long way to go- your head will be wrecked by what ifs before you get there. My own opinion i...
It definately sounds like a cracked coolant level sensor. on a dg you might have to run the engine and throttle up on the cable cam on the carb to get sufficient pressure to find the coolant pissing out of the cracked sensor. Don't be shy. That's what happened to me anyway.

Buy a new propex heatsource 2000 from eberbasto. It will retain it's value for many moons to come and really is the dogs bollox. Plus they only draw 1 amp when running and igniting whereas the ebers can draw up to 20a for the first few minutes as they have to heat a glow plug. Propexes are piezo (au...
