Funny looking sheep, must be a cross between a big sheep and a big banana, don`t want to think about how that could have occurred.

Thank you very much Alex for taking the time to send out these copies, it is appreciated.

I agree about cracking the injector lines to rid the air. On the older engines they are a taper fit to seal and will reseal with no issues. Even cracking them at the injector itself will help it a lot.

On the start o matic lister cs there is a resistor connected to the sollenoid to reduce the amps going to the coil when it's running, works with a switch thats being pushed by the fuel linkage.

Also with a multimeter you can see on witch wires you got reading and witch on not. and the start o matic was 24v.

just an idea

Great idea Stef, still need to check the switch to ensure it is a spring loaded push to make type, otherwise the battery will discharge through the solenoid.

Hey Johndoh, if you buy this, there is every chance the crankshaft, camshaft and etc will be fine. You might find it quicker to simply buy a new piston and cylinder rather than having the old one re-bored.

When you strip it down check the oil pump plunger. Mine was badly worn where the camshaft runs against it. I did track down a replacement but they wanted $500 plus postage. I ordered a piece of 5/8 silver steel and made a replacement, cost me about $15.

Hi Onzlow, If you have checked the charging fuse and it is OK the only other possibility is that Line Contactor two in the main relay is not making a circuit. Please do not do this with the generator running as some of the contacts run 240 volts. It may be that the high current leak you were experiencing has fused the contactors together in the standby/start position.

Please see the photo attached, the red wire goes to the ammeter, the white wire goes to the battery and the yellow wire connects to the charging circuit fuse.

Hi Bob, I hope you are still with me! You are right!
I have at last managed to get round to looking at the solenoid, and what seems to be the problem is the pin below the contact bar, that is held on with a split pin, has worn down or broken so that it is no longer long enough to lift the contact bar and break the contacts on the high power solenoid.
I must admit I am a bit puzzled as to how this has got worn, anyway I can make another one. I assume itís length is such that it sits just below the insulated pad on the contact bar.
I did notice that when I ran the generator and lifted the contact bar with a screw driver the voltmeter rose from a negative discharge to zero, which was good in that it showed the contacts were breaking, however I would have expected it to show a charge as the batteries should have been charging then. I checked the fuses in the box where the battery leads come in, they were ok, any ideas?

Sorry, I sent it to two other people and left you off the lust. I have just sent them to your Gmail account.
