Which Battery?

  1. No. The volt meter said the battery was in its way out anyway.I think I found the problem now. The wires up behind the oil bath filter. I just put my hand behind it, and traced all the wires up to the box, tried it, and it fired up fine.
    Wire cleaning, next. I forgot those little connections, up there.
  2. I have mentioned it before but I measured the current on my 1641 and the solenoid draws 16 amps and the starter draws 50 amps cranking.

    While my Peugeot 2.0 diesel draws 260 amps peak.

  3. Came to say this, the batteries might not be the best, but they work, and they are without doubt the easiest to get exchanged if they fail

  4. Those wires shouldnt be broken behind the oil bath .. should be some go to the voltage regulator then the oil pressure switch, alternator wiring and a big black switched igniton wire going to the coil.
