I just got my 4.154 started after 13 years of sitting. I had to rewire the wiring
harness connector due to a salt water
bath and 13years of corrossion. I went wire to wire but have lost
the connection to the glow plug
relay and I can't find it on the instrument panel with a wire tracer. I am presuming that the normal start procedure is 1) Key to on, 2) Press glow plugs button for a few seconds and 3) while holding the glow plugs, press the start button.
The push button I presume to be glow plugs is not marked as such and if it actually does something else, that would be why I can't trace it.
actually started quite easily with out the glow plugs energized. Maybe it was never hooked up.
I had posted a question about using 13 year old fuel
and was concerned about it. As such, I drained out all the old fuel
and put in new. The old stuff I have been running at a 1/3old to 2/3rds new ratio in my old diesel
mercedes. I got to thinking about what could be wrong with old fuel and I decided darned little if it was clean and dry. I guess stabilizers and additives and cetane boosters could degrade but why would and engine
that will run just fine on waste vegetable oil
even care? Thoughts?
