To speed up the photo upload, reduce the size ( Mb ) of the photos before you upload..... it helps us download the photo quicker too on our PC's when trying to look at your posts. Try get the pic size below 1Mb. I reduce mine down to around 300-400 Kb..... :thumbup:

What I usually do is to whatsapp the pics to someone and have them send it back, that sorts out the size and quality also is very good :thumbup:

Ag en nou wil die ou madam nie start nie. Swing dat dit bars maar niks gebeur nie. Zexel inlyn diesel injector pomp. Het sopas nuwe battery en glow plugs ingesit. Voel so asof die pomp n solenoid tipe ding het wat n draad af is, maar wragtag ek sien net mooi niks.

Google help ook nie veel nie, weet iemand dalk iets van die pompe af wat sal kan raad gee?

Groete

Andre

Bliskem.... and I had a spare inline diesel pump for the 4.2 !!! Sold it a few weeks back

Andre, there should be a single wire leading to the pump to activate the solenoid to open up for incoming diesel. If there is no wire connected anywhere, then that is the problem for sure.

If there is a wire connected, make sure it is a good clean connection, and that the earth strap is nicely connected to the motor and body and chassis and obviously back to the negative on the battery.

Check the fuses. Our old school diesels only need the solenoid to open and the pistons to crank over to start.

Another thing.... it's going to sound silly, but is there diesel in the tank?

Check the fuel lines for any leak. the slightest leak can cause big k@k. Check for water in the Diesel filter by the hand primer pump.

I think there is a big airlock in the fuel pipes from standing for a while,and now you have to sukkel to get that airlock out !!

Andre check if you are getting power(12v) to the solenoid when turning the ignition on ...then make sure you getting fuel to the pump :thumbup:

Andre, ek het een van daai inline pompe wat in my garage le, maar ek het geen ondervinding op hulle nie.

Ek het juis vandag vir Tinus gese ek weet nie mooi hoe werk die wiper motor conversion op hulle nie :think:

But like Cedric says, cant be to complex

Ok, die ou madam start, maar die pomp/wiper motor kombinasie kry nie krag nie, speel bietjie met die draadjies en die wiper motortjie draai in die rondte. Reg, so ons sit met n krag probleempie. Het enige iemand dalk moontlik n "wiring diagram" vir die GQ?

Groete

Andre
