    Holiday pics

    Thanks to Nicol at Blesfontein, a tractor filter and diesel siphoned from his tractor we could hit the dirt road again. A real adventure holiday...

    Next trip!

    20l drum with 17l in went quite a distance. With a 25l jerrycan the range increased to +_ 400km! Can just imagine what can be done with the actual tanks cleaned and working:roll:

    Janee...

    You make me jealous Leonard, with 25 l the 300CDI only goes 120 to 180 km. Should there be fuel supply problems we only see amber lights and no "boereplan" can help us through.
    That is what they call progress!
    Regards
    Rolf

    Ignition switch petrol vs diesel

    Any experience with removal of petrol ignition and replacing with diesel one?

    Electrician hooked up a mitsubishi solenoid valve to switch off engine, but this thing became hot after driving a while. Coupled with an electrical short I suspect this may have been the culprit, I am looking to put a diesel ignition switch in with the valve a part of the switch.

    Pic 1 shows the 230GE one presently fitted. It does not have the back that would allow for valve part fitment. Another issue is it doesnt come out like the 123 or 124 ones.

    1: There is no hole in the pipe that it slides into that would allow the locking pin to be pushed in for removal. (My logic tells me that it locks inside the steering column. Removal of steering wheel didnt help either)

    2: The pipe is shorter and a smaller inner diameter by about 4mm than both 123 300D(loose one pic 2) and 124 300D(visible locking pin)..


    I suppose fitting a manual valve could be easiest and could double as a anti theft hidden switch. Would prefer it operating right though..

    Any ideas most welcome...

    Resurrecting an old thread with OM606 n/a engine transplant to same poor Igor.

    Done mechanical injector pump swop from om603. Immediately I have some clearance concerns. Have imported engine brackets from 463 300GD OM603 but the sump is only 5 mm from chassis which I don't like. So that sump must come off and get modified I think. Intake manifold clears battery basket by 1.8 cm. Alternator clears steering box by 2cm. Intake manifold has just over a cm space when closing bonnet. Tight ek se.

    Leonard it is tight, very tight. No add to all of that a turbo, Aircleaner and aircon. But the upside is it is doable.
