Re: Kubota KH-007

If that doesn't help then the next thing would be maybe to take the pipes off the ram and connect them together - it'll just pump the oil around in circles but if it's still labouring that may indicate a restriction in that circuit somewhere.

Re: Kubota KH-007

Ok, just wondered if the ram was bent. I guess the next thing to try is remove one of the ram pins and see what happens with no load on it. If it works then it would suggest the main pivot pin is bad. Has it been standing a while?
Hopefully someone else will jump in and make more sense than me!

Re: Kubota KH-007

Are you getting full travel on the ram?

Re: Anyone any good at alternator bodgery? E1A Major

Retried the bench test with a good battery. NFG. Wouldn't put the charge light out and didn't change the measured voltage. So... I'm curious to prove my bench test and back to the scrap pile looking for another alternator to play with.

Re: Kubota KH-007

Hi Dan, these tend to be run at 3/4 to full throttle so if you're trying to operate at near tickover that could be one cause or possibly gummy filters in the fuel and oil systems perhaps. Change all the filters and give 'er sum bunny!

Re: B275 not reaching operating temperature.

I would take a took at it. It would be a happier engine and where you are located less chance of the fuel waxing. Far more importantly though, you can't cook your lunch on a cold engine.

Re: Anyone any good at alternator bodgery? E1A Major

I have proof of concept. Rigged it up as per the video - except I had a ratchet strap holding it down - and it works. Sort of. The only thing I couldn't find was a good battery. The result being the battery I had only had 7 volts in it. Spun the alternator up with the drill, the light goes out almos...

Re: B275 not reaching operating temperature.

Oops, sorry! I priced in £ not Can$. Now, the first assumption I made was that it is a diesel engine not gas. Hopefully when you pop it out it will be jammed open and obviously stuffed. Or missing completely - not unusual. I ran one daily for a couple of years and it always ran very hot when pushed....

Re: Anyone any good at alternator bodgery? E1A Major

Most importantly it was the right price! Yes it does have the plastic shroud and yes the +12v on both ends makes sense. Once I've physically tried it for myself I'll hopefully understand it better.
Thanks guys, I'll let you know how I get on. Right now, I have a hole to fill in...

Re: B275 not reaching operating temperature.

No experience at this keyboard. The thermostat is the best place to start. It's about £5 to replace, and from memory it's hiding in the top of the water pump. Only three bolts and (cheapskate warning) a homemade gasket. While you're at that end of the engine, check the rod that steadies the top of t...
