Re: Diesel Bike Diary

Smoke out of the oilfiller cap means severe pistonring leakage. Result not enough compression to ignite the fuel. Somehow you you have to start the engine and let it run for a while. Adding about 25% atf oil helps to dissolve carbon between piston and ring. Spray some ether in the intake while start...

Re: HondaCB+Hatz Scrambler project

You can minimize the current with a resistor in serie with the solenoid. The holding voltage/current when the valve is already open is much lower. Check with a variable voltage powersupply at which voltage the solenoid closes. To be sure it stays open even if the the batteryvoltage is a bit lower, a...

Re: How to D950 Kubota governor disable?

A diesel engine without a working governor does not keep a stable idle speed. Or it stalls or it runs 2000 rpm or so. And even with a governor you will have full throttle. What you can do is increase the max rpm which is factory set on 3000 or 3600 rpm (50 or 60 Hz) I guess 4000 rpm max is harmless,...

Re: Honda 750 with Kubota Z482

In my opinion cooling or heating has very little effect on performance. By the time the fuel reaches the combustion chamber it has the same temperature as the injector which is thermally connected to the cilinderhead The volume of liquid inside the injector is large compared to the injected volume,t...

Re: Unknown dutch diesel bike & tranny question!

That bike is the dieselross , made by Stephan Sanderse.
Unfortunately Stephan is not active on fora.
As far as I know he uses the original VW gearbox and a 1:1 rear bevel.
There is a fair chance he will show up at the TEXEL automotorentreffen , at least he was there 4 years ago

yes.

Or try without throttle cable and operate the governor lever by hand.
If that gives you a stable idle speed the spring has to be removed.

Re: Variable fuel pump

Did you try without the spring between cable and governor ? I dont see why you need a spring there. In fact you have two springs in series(one from the governor)the force on the governor shaft depends on the rpm so there might be some interaction between both springs. Is it just impossible to set th...

Re: Disappointing turbo performance

Maybe your pressure gauge is not fast enough to see the pressure drop when the intake valve opens.
It easy goes below atmospheric pressure , resulting in less air entering the combustion chamber.
