Resurrection of a Deutz MAH 914, 1952? Lets see!
« on: August 01, 2022, 08:13:47 PM »
Gentles, distinguished forum members

As promised, I now start the topic about the Deutz MAH 914.

But first things first, the Hilux water pump seized a ball bearing, and so it took the opportunity to change the timing belt as well.

The pallet with the Deutz offset measurements is ready for tomorrow to start lifting it.

Lets see how it goes.

Gentles, please fingers cross.

A couple of pics to joy.

Cheers
VP

Gentles

Here we go... left home monday evening to village. Tuesday melt the fat, the shovel is not easy to maneuver (especially after 3:30), but could get all space clean... I mean clean with archaeology engineering, as you can see further.

I'll give you a set of 35 pics. There is more but the essencial to joy.

Forgive me just to not have a essencial vid of the extraction of the engine from its shed to the ute;

But younger son was helping, and He was so excited with the operation that he forgot to make the vid... saved by the bell the last pic with Backhoe loader man and owner (one of the girls).

Backhoe loader puted arm from upside down into shed and hooked the harness that I made to toke it out.

Pics are titled by order, please be patient...

1 - Cutting Blackberry bushes - AGAIN...
2 - Starting archaeology... with shovel! 3 HOURS SHOVELING!
3 - First find: exhaust pot and an old oil can. And 3 old piston rings.
4 - Ha, Ha.... the ignition key!
5 - The archaeology pile of dirt.
6 - One fire salamander...returned to the wild (Im very conservative of any animal kind).

Cheers.
VP

PS: The vid of water in sump is displayed in FB, among some pics, and DEUTZ Forum will have a few pics with link to here.

1 - HUau, 1st nut off...
2 - Ok, a break to confirm originality. Label with cast iron!
3 - Afternoon (and after dinner is twice sacrifice, but it must be done. Look at the shirt!). Only could save half of the fuel tank... but banjos are there. Do you get me?
4 - Surprise, surprise... engine has a mold of concrete around the sump. Let's go to primary and get masonry tools... heavy mallet and spick to break it free. (there is the answer why it still here! and not stolen... to scrap).
5 - The last one (nut) had to make his point to be the SOB. Pipe wrench is always the solution to those are stubborn!
6 - Now the SOB is out out of his bed... some pieces of rubble under sump to confirm it stays as it should, to extrat.

Well done VP, you have been very busy. Looks like the makings of a very good engine, You may need to buy it a new fuel filter!

Hi Bob, Gentles

Only a fuel filter? Im afraid of the injection circuit; pump and injector.

Two valves for shure.

Hope not to send it to scrap.

Cheers
VP

Nicely done! Looks like the prize at the end was well worth the effort. Looking forward to seeing if you can bring it back to life.

Hi VP, I would not be too worried about the fuel pump and injector, the rust will only be on the outside. The internals may be seized up with evaporated diesel but should be OK. strip them from the engine and soak them in a mixture of diesel and Automatic transmission fluid for as long as you can, if you can heat the solution even better. Don`t heat them on the kitchen stove, you will get in trouble and probably burn your house down. Try to find a small gas/electric stove or use the barbecue.
Valves should not be a problem, there are sure to be equivalent valves used in more modern engines. How do the valve guides look? You can always ream them out and use a slightly larger valve stem, not ideal but ok if it is only going to be a working display model.
Very jealous of your find, nothing like that in Tasmania.

Well done on the recovery og this special little engine. You may be surprised at how little it will need to run again. As stated, what it looks like on the outside may be bad but inside still good. Thanks for the pictures.
