Beta engine starting problems solved

Thank you to all of you who replied on my starting problems with my engine. I want to give you feedback to the solution and the problems found with your help and that of a diesel mechanic....
problems were identified as :
engine turnover when starting too slow
engine not getting enough fuel to start at start up only.

battery located 5 ft away and wired in 16sq cable we relocated a 135 AH battery 30" away and wired in 50 sq cable starting turnover speed doubled at a very healthy rate.

from www.Kubotoman UK found instructions for establishing TDC on the front flywheel and checking the timing of the fuel pump very simple.. when you see the instructions.. and finally made adjustments to the two screws on the pump to remove the vibration on tickover..

Now er are starting on the second turnover and what a difference it is to have confidence in your engine.. happy days made the cruising around the west of Ireland this summer magical

Thank you for you comments and support

Re: Beta engine starting problems solved

Glad that it worked out to be a simple fix. The correct link to the site that you mentioned is Kubota remanufactured engine parts, fuel pumps, injectors, water pumps, turbos, cylinder heads, cylinder blocks, cranks, rods, oil pumps, exchange full engines

always a great thing to have a reliable diesel when you need it
sometimes the things that may or may not be true are the things a man needs to believe in the most.
