    Relation between gauges not working and starter solenoid?

    I was away for 6 months and my girlfriend was using my HJ 60. One day, while at the dentist or something, it wouldn't start when she got back out. She had a few guys try to get it going, but couldn't, so she had it towed to a house where it could be parked until I got back in the country. I...

    2H Starter

    Can anyone send me some photos of what their starter relay looks like on their HJ 60 2H?? I think mine has a "custom" relay off of a boat motor, but I am not sure. Thanks in advance! My HJ is a 1984 if that makes any difference.

    Superwinch X9 Remote Questions

    Maybe I'll try that next week. I wish they had something on their website stating that there are different types of plugs.

    Superwinch X9 Remote Questions

    I have an older Superwinch X9. I lost the remote years ago, so I ordered a new one - and the plug is different. Is this something that Superwinch changed over the years, or do you think that someone customized it? If it is custom, can someone recommend a "best practices" way of doing my...

    additional temperature gauge sensor location

    Thanks for the quick responses. What a pita...as I guess everyone knows, the hole in the top of the head is super shallow, and so is the hole in the thermostat housing. I put one of those new, short electrical sending units in the thermostat housing, but don't have a gauge to hook to the one...

    additional temperature gauge sensor location

    Did you ever find a solution for this? I can't seem to fit the sensor in the spot on the thermostat housing location. The gauge I bought has a sensor that is too long, and the adapter threads don't seem to work......

    EDIC problems

    But, is the OI doing something different than the gas pedal?

    EDIC problems

    Does anyone know if holding the "gas" pedal does the same thing as the overfuel position???

    EDIC problems

    Yeah it has one of those, I also hold the pedal down halfway to start, but figured the "overfuel" function was something different....is it just doing the same thing??

    EDIC problems

    I'm thinking about engineering two cables, so that one is the shut off and the other is the overfuel for cold starts. Has anyone done that? A solid bar coming through the firewall would be ideal, but the heater is in the way on the cabin side of the firewall. A lever that would allow a bar to...

    Crank, no start - after repairing starter

    I found the issue. When I put in the starter, the round wire harness got jammed between the starter and the frame (statistically impossible) ... likely causing one of the wires from the edic side of the harness to get pulled just enough to cause a bad connection....hence the wire wiggle getting...

    Awesome. Thanks for the help... really appreciate it. I'll check it out this afternoon 😁

    Crank, no start - after repairing starter

    So, I got it fired...:). The EDIC thing was the issue. I wiggled it around for a while, then had my assistant try to start it, and it started! BUT....now it is pulsing. The EDIC thing is moving back and forth as though it can't decide to run or stop??? Any ideas on that. I also wiggled...

    Cool, I'll give it a shot as soon as my assistant gets back. I'll let you know what happens. Thanks!

    Crank, no start - after repairing starter

    I'll look for this EDIC thing. Any idea which way is run, and which way is stop?

    Crank, no start - after repairing starter

    I just checked with a test light...it lit up. So, these 2H motors require glow plugs even when it is summer time?....seems weird. My unimog doesn't even have glow plugs, and my International 530 didn't have them either, neither did a couple Kenworths, Volvos, and Macks I've driven. They...

    Crank, no start - after repairing starter

    I'm not sure what the "edic" is? The glow pugs are getting juice - so that eliminates the glow plug theory. Here's a question---Does the ignition wire on the starter have any function other than telling the starter to turn? Is there some type of thing (wire,sensor) that would tell the fuel...

    Crank, no start - after repairing starter

    I prefilled it and primed it - but that was after the initial problem.

    Crank, no start - after repairing starter

    I'll take a look. I just changed the fuel filter - since I needed to do it anyway....so now I'll bleed the system. This kind of stuff drives me nuts.

    Crank, no start - after repairing starter

    Hmmmm.....this is weird. I'll look around to see if I find anything resembling that. It seems weird that fixing a starter would mess with anything, but years ago, on an 86 bronco I had, I changed a fuel filter for the heck of it....and truck was down for 6 weeks. Turned out to be completely...
