  1. nice pics i hope you cleaned up and greased the solenoid connection while you were in there those wobble end extensions are great tools
  2. germanparts dot ca used them a few times...no problems and the parts get here quick they have a wahler one listed for $67 right now..plus they usually have a small savings using a promo code
  3. welcome to here i dont have an answer but someone who does will probably be around they will probably want to know what model year
  4. i can but its a cheat previous owner cut a trap door out of the firewall in my car to access the starter...id just have to grind off my welds and remove the seam sealer i put when i sealed it back up
  5. injector injects in the center dont ream any further than the actual length of a glowplug intake valve is usually the larger one Tolsens advice is always spot on...but sometimes details are lost in translation
  6. heres another picture..too bad the owner didnt leave the glow plugs in to show the angle
  7. i like to put air into each cylinder while at top dead center and listen to exhaust and intake (and crankcase) to confirm diagnosis more before removal if its a valve it should be very obvious
  8. there is no spring in there its a rather acute angle...if it happened the same in each cylinder at same distance without rotating then it has to be flexing against the cylinder wall i dont have a picture but if i had to guess id say the glow plug enters the combustion chamber at about 45 degrees
  9. glow plug goes in at an angle..."spring" feeling was probably wooden dowel bending a bit when it touched piston
  10. based on the 3 bars mentioned...i would do the easy thing first...which is removal of clutch actuator and visual inspection of clutch release shaft hole ....
  11. if i remember right the engine is fairly slanted...and the piston has a combustion pocket perhaps the penetrating oil stayed in the pocket or only got part of the rings...and the extra oil was able to get around to all ring surfaces
  12. why post pictures of map sensor and then talk about actuator hose?,.. its almost like youre trying to confuse this person on purpose
  13. probably hand only since he used the word "reach" and probably not with just wheel off since he said "by removing the right hand side wheel arch"....by wheel arch he probably means the inner fender plastic shield i know for sure you can reach in from top of engine to tap on the connector with a tool ...ive done it myself ..not just guessing on that one
  14. the weight isnt bad... i remember lifting my engine and transmission assembly onto a work table by myself
  15. welcome to here i cant think of anything except for that brake pedal..at least youll get a thread bump it would be nice if someone made a cheap affordable basic ecm for these things ..to use them as stationary engines or engine swaps personally for dune buggy id have gone with something simpler and more horsepower like a newer snowmobile engine
