Hi Glort

I think it's enough of a blow, I realize, you can put off the boot.

Hi Bob

As I said, today I bought the nut and the counter nut, and incredibly the measure is metric 22 * 1,5 - who would say!

I had the nuts turned in order to save maximum thread.

It worked flawlessly. Now it's cleaning everything, closing and tuning it in the correct pressure.

One more thing: oxalic acid leaves a protective antirust layer, it should (i think) only be slightly brushed and cleaned before painting.

we will see...

Cheers

Hi Pedrosa,Looks very nice, quality workmanship. I recommend that you assemble it without the injector nozzle, then flush it through with diesel or new vegetable oil before fitting the nozzle. It only takes a couple of pieces of crud to block the nozzle and it can be impossible to clean out after.

Haven`t touched my restoration for a few days, a mixture of cost, depression and ill health. Hoping to get back to it next week.

Keep up the good work.
Bob.

Hi everyone,

Bob cheers you up, I wish you the best. Health is very important, but we have to be more stubborn than disease.

Of course if we are tired we can lay the body down for him to rest, but our head never rests, and it affects the body.

But even if you do little in restoration, this can ease the rest because it keeps you busy.

yesterday was harvest day, few grapes, the climate this year was severe.
Let's see inside the barrel...

Today I left the injectors in a specialized company, it will cost me 1 hour of business labor.

All the beste for all

Thanks Pedrosa, the reason I bought my engine was to keep me busy, while recovering from a very serious injury in a motor vehicle accident. I have probably recovered as good as I`m going to get. Makes me very angry and depressed that this is going to be as good as it gets from here on. This forum and the people on it keep me sane. I`ve ordered another heap of spares and will try to get back to the rebuild next week.

Good luck with your rebuild and the harvest.

Bob

Hi Bob

Today was a national holiday, but the restoration continues. I did not do much, but the pile of pieces is already pretty.

The injectors are tuning and the fuel tank is in the oxalic.

Only the cart is missing to remove the iron from the shack. Plans are already made.

Hi Pedrosa, all looking good. Be careful moving the old iron, it`s very heavy. Use the best mechanical handling tools you have and stay out of harms way. I have seen serious injuries from slowly moving heavy steel objects.

Good luck, let us know how you go.

Bob

hello bob

So, how are these bones?

a lot of work and little restoration. I got my calibrated injectors today (and I got a compliment from the injector technician about the cleaning).

the plans for the fuel filter are in progress as you can see in the photos, the cart is already on the white board as well.

Tomorrow is the day to go get the wood for the cart, cut, drill, screw and put wheels.

Let's see how it goes.

greetings
Pedrosa

Hi Pedrosa, looks like you are making good progress. I am a little concerned about your modification to the fuel filter, I`m not convinced the pressure holding the filter against the o`ring will be sufficient and could allow unfiltered diesel to bypass the filter.

Congratulations on the injectors and injector pumps. I striped my pump months ago and found the rack to be badly damaged. I recently got my hands on another old CAV injector pump with the intention of using the best parts from each to make one good unit. I have a new element for it so we`ll see how it goes. I`ll post some pics as soon as possible.

Good luck,
Bob

Loock at plan above. I will make a threaded nut, where it inserts a bored tube (1/4 ~ 3/8), and carries another nut in the bottom, with orings on both sides. All brass metal.

The photo is to show that I can always insert the original filter.

The filter is an Rx9, quite common to many cars, and fits perfectly on the spot.

Cheers.

Hi Everyone

Just to update. Wood and wheels are ready to roll...

Wood is wet, rain came yesterday.

A few bolts and nuts and new kart will be done.

Cheers
Pedrosa

How wet is the wood? It might be worth painting the end grain with polyurethane varnish to stop it from splitting as it dries out.

Like your design for the diesel filter, sorry I only viewed the picture not the drawing.

Hi Bob

Just some overnight drops, nothing that worth any painting because it will be temporary.

Now my concern is to figure out the way to lift the block.

My idea is I have to mount a scaffold with good support to raise the engine, put the cart underneath and make a rail to get out.

Let's see how it goes.

cheers.
