Engine work

While Andy was working away on the wiring, assisted by Patch, I got stuck into the air start problem on the main engine.

Engine workAs ever, things are never as straightforward as they first seem.

In this case I had to take the diesel injector off before I could get to the air start mechanism, then I had to take off the instrument panel so as to get to one of the nuts right at the bottom there.

Anyway, the air start valve is free, but looks like it could do with some adjustment. I'm not sure what happened to the underlying spring there.

I'll also need to get some valve grinding paste, to make sure that valve is seated properly in the future.

I'm learning lots as I go.
