316-8 acting strange..

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

while restoring my 520H i needed to bring the "old paper and paper boxes" to the street for collection.

What better way to do that than with the 316-8 .....while driving i thought i heard the engine didnt sound that well.

It was almost like the "choke" was still on. At a certain point....the engine... it just stopped.

Now i noticed the voltage meter was "jumping" up and down. (like a loose connection)

While seeing that i figured...hm..maybe the engine didnt run that well and i was right....and some "sparkes" were missed due to an electrical issue.

 

Plan is to just run down everything for loose connections, but maybe u guys say ....owh thats a well known problem.... its the .....(ur answer)

In that case, please do say so, thanks you in advance..

I needed it up and running before my wife tells me : why do u buy another one...make sure u have one that runs in first place :ROTF:

I can't just say go to this or that but you're on the right track by checking all the connections. I would suggest that, even if it seems tight, that you disconnect it and do some cleaning. Once you know all the connections are good see what happens. :)
