  1. I figure the owner before had to drill and tap a glow plug out cause I found shavings on the block on removal. got the mighty beast running to night runs like a top. so pleased the frankenstein engine runs still need to weld a few bolts on in the inner fender wells fix up the plastic that the brackets mount to on the rear put tires on and go for a test drive its been so cold here that the convertible smart wont start so next project is circulating heater on the convertible. THANKS!! to everyone for the interest and input on this project
  2. spent some time on the car. pulled the motor removed the head. SURPRISE!! head was mashed piston 2 was mashed melted seized rings on piston 2 &3 lucky for me I have a replacement but the oil cooler had been knocked off So I changed out the bottom of the block with the oil cooler from the dead car onto the other motor. have it all put together except heads torqued. Now to put the motor back in the car and see if it will live! hoping for a Christmas miracle. spent the day today looking for a T55 4 inches long to torque the head no such luck need to come up with a different plan to torque the heads. any ideas out there that would explain melted pistons seized rings there is metal built up on the head that was hitting on piston 2? I'm thinking gas was put in the tank so I'm going to drop the fuel tank empty it new diesel flush the lines.
  3. no time to check the out the heads so I got the convertible smart on the road today to busy at work to check the heads maybe on days off at Christmas and thanks for the input about the valves
  4. newer injectors installed,got the glow plugs working (control box). Devised a compression tester cylinder one (270) cylinder two (0) cylinder three (90) psi thinking in going to have to go deeper and remove the head and check the valves. Any other ideas before I drop the engine?
  5. You will need new copper washers/fire seals from the dealer to reinstall. They are inexpensive my nearest dealership is 300kms away
  6. car turns over checked alternator (spins freely) replaced Ebox no change checked egr it is clear no blockage, fuel pressure is good glow plugs not working (I have it in the garage 20c in there should start) tried to check compression but my compression tester wont fit down into glow plug hole. battery is fully charged and I set it to boost when trying to start motor spins a little faster on boost but no start!! I bought the car dead have no history on this car. I do have another smart cdi that was in accident that ran perfect that I can remove parts from. both cars are 2005 diesel cdi 90k on smashed car 115k on car that wont start. any help getting this car started would be great. wont start with starting fluid either
