Sitting in Golfito, about to try the canal. The high torque starter on the CT-47 4-154 has been hit and miss, so I am putting back in the original starter. Of course I ran again across the mysterious black box which appears to be related to the glow plugs.
I am a retired electrical
engineer/ computer field engineer/systems programmer, supposed to be a smart guy, and the English
wiring things is a bane to the world.
This thread, with its pictures and comments, has done more good than all of perkins documentation
TA diesels is great, but perkins put the 4-154 into the field with 20 different wiring versions.
With my back ground, I am not afraid to redo things, and I am convinced that a momentary switch flipping a solenoid to run the glow plugs is the way to go. and pitch
the mystery box.
My plan when I get the time, is to use the wiring diagram that you dug up, and simplify/correct it and add the new home made glow plug circuit, and stick it into my workshop manual. Thanks to all the smart and sharing guys on this forum who are willing to help.
