Gentles,

Bob: All system in head is hugely rusted and scalling. Lub made by oiling the hollow shaft manualy; bushes are new conditon. Hope you too soon start doing your stuf. Good luck.

Cobba: Yes a ball of stainless for pans here too, and is too soft for the job (but I have it on shelf for clean inside valve guides and so on. Timber on sail boats use the straw to put new coat of marine varnish.

Bob G: I hope this german rusty iron will still be able to pull a 55 chevy, or at least have fun running it.

Now the improvements:Injector spring is out. No doubt this guy swallowed water.

A pic to joy.

Cheers

Steel wool is smother than this steel staw.

This was a round of steel straw and its used  - or was mainly used - to scratch wood floors is order to give it after a coat of wax.

This one was used to scracth the rust arround the rockers shaft.

And yes, can be used also as air filter.

Thanks again for all your support.

Special thanks to Guillermo Riesz [https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpWo21SrBRlHdMPFVnsv-DQ/videos], for the support of the user manual - fortantly it has the timing method.

A small help is better than none!

Thanks for your patience and kindeness to follow the Deutz lunatic ( ;D ;D ;D);

Still stuck in rust - but things are going slowly and nice.

Today here is a holyday, and so the Mighty gave some help, I think.

Injector is apart; Prechamber is out and rocker assembly also stripped.

A few pics for the show:

1 - Injector apart;
2 - Prechamber going down;

4 - rocker rust falling apart;
5 - rocker giving fight;
6 - And more fight;

Hi stef, and Gentles

Things are going. Made a worksheet with the most ancient lanes of production of olive oil, and made contact with of civil parishes to ask for inactive olive oil presses.

Therefore Im making satarday tours to see those sites.

Im preparing my pre Retirement (25 months left) and I need to be occupied!  ;D ;D ;D ;D

As you can see there will be some engines that can be traded by LEF members (Peter and Rita Forbes, made a load at Algarve, years ago).

No need the dog, just a open heart to people - because they are very suspicious about strange people around.

Just keep an eye in the thread... I think good stuff will come around.

Thanks for your support.

Oil pump as you can see is driven by an excentric cam in the main shaft.

The pump was full of water, maybe some reaction (???) with babbit. Didnt notice any bypass, and only lubricate big end.

Flogging spanner got to go to a torch, couldnt cut it, its too thick for hand tools.

A QUESTION FOR MEMBERS:

Cant see any timing marks neither at main, neither at camshaft. how can I be ware of its marks.

And how can I straighten the push rod without bend. The tube is very elastic.

Stuck decompressor limiter saved;

Tappets off, and nice;

And, finally, injector came out. Look how thin is the injector body!

The crank case is almost empty.

Oil pump only need a good clean (steel balls as valves), its in good condition.

Now make a though 60mm ring spanner to get off the flyes.

A few pics for the show.

From my point of view its not a manufacturing fault, but if you give atention to the big end journal and the oil hole we can figure out that fault match with the cicle of stroke of the oil pump. So I think oil pressure maybe did that.

Just my 5 cents.

Cheers
VP

PS: Yes that damn IP still hamering my mind!

2nd clearly water wheel (need to contact owner).
3rd was electric.

A few more pics os the disassembly of the german.

(Damn, that plunger still knocking my head... and in my hart!)

It is in good shape inside - at first glance.

Big end crank need to be polished.

Babbit looks ok, just some wearing, and it has a hole at place of oil from pump channel.

Small end I think will need new bushing.

Piston has 2 rings stuck.

I appreciate you cheers me but, its not the value... it's the stupidity I had make! thats the point.

Now I'm making a 60mm ring spaner to withdraw the flyes.

I got to strip it to make the replacement inventory and source parts.

Cheers

It had the tip corroded - but only saw it could be saved (dont want a Ferrari) after break it.

Was made it carefully and I ended to put the wrong roll pin punch, IN THE WRONG PLACE.

I can source another one here: https://www.historische-ersatzteile.de/pumpen-mah-mih-motoren

But its expensive anyway, and I hate to breke things.
