More Progress



Called around and found this sweet scratch and dent ladder from a local RV shop for $50. Starting to really look like a Skoolie.

But, the real triumph is 315W of pure solar power mounted! Bought off Craigslist from a local who is building an Off Grid home. He bought pallets of panels at a discount, these were surplus. 0.75 cents a Watt. I used the L Track rail removed from the interior as mounts along with a couple corner brackets from Habitat for Humanity Restore. This place is an incredible asset. Just picked up 8 battery terminal clamps for $2.50 total! Never know what treasure awaits. Talking a lot about price right now however, building this project with as many reused and inexpensive materials is priority for me, a way of life really. Tomorrow AC and Inverter wiring.

Troubles...

So ends a week of exhaustive trouble shooting

http://www.skoolie.net/forums/f39/he...all-15215.html

New High Pressure Fuel Pump and Lift Pump on the way. $2900. Really bummed, C'est la Vie. Hope springs eternal and I believe after this gargantuan sum she will be invincible!

Here's the latest from the inside, which is going awesome. Battery bank in, AC outlets wired, STEREO INSTALLED!!!, LED strips running the roof, bathroom and bed framed out along with some other things.

I see not your final posts on the original thread until just now. I would not install the new VP44 until reading this: https://www.bluechipdiesel.com/vp44_diagnostics.html Sounds like your VP is shot but.....

somrthing doesnt make sense about the mechanic diagnosis..

in a diesel the high pressure pump must overcome the compression pressure of the cylinder to inject any fuel... if your pump was shot your bus shoudnt run at all.. or at least shouldnt run and drive.. yet when you use ether im getting that it starts runs and drives fine....

im wondering if it isnt timing causing the issue... at a slow speed a late shot into the cylinder wont fire... at a higher RPM like when its running a late shot is less of an issue as you still have high enough compression in the cylinder to left over as the piston drops to get a fire....

I didnt read the link posted... also if the lift pump isnt doing its job then you would have low fuel volume potentially at the High pressure pump....

some things just dont quite add up here to a completely bad high pressure pump..
