[Vibration] [80] - FUEL

Roman, my thoughts exactly. The bit about facing uphill = more vibration
leads me to think you may have a partially blocked - filter / housing or
delivery line. Check them all carefully. If using compressed air to blow
the fuel lines through first remove the fuel cap, so the fuel tank is
not pressurised, the vents cannot always be relied on.

It is also worth removing the rear (2nd Row) seats and looking into the
tank via the inspection plate, there might be some crud on the filter
on the end of the pickup.
Whist there also a good opportunity to blow the fuel lines through from
the tank end to filter (remove the hose to the filter in the engine
bay) - saves blowing crap back into the tank.
Also check all the breathers on the tank, including the one in the cap
and the one with the pipe that runs into the cross member near the rear
axle.

Hi Julian
I had no idea there was an inspection hatch there. I must have a look.
Have to say I love the old cruiser but she is quite long in the tooth now
and having cherished her for 10 years it is probably time to start really
using her off road.

Hi Simon and welcome to the group. Its really nice to see im not the only
one who has not been of road with our cruisers. I am trying to get it into
shape for the off roading but every time I think I will get some where It
goes and does something that costs my off road budget. Ill get there in the
end but I fear that by that time I will have all the guys with the brains
driven insane on the list. So now I bet your going to tell me your a
mechanic or someone with tech knowledge unlike me. Anyway hope you enjoy the
craic on the list and of course all the good advice that is a normal feature
of the generosity of the members.

Hi Julian
The Rev is at about 450 and always has been, and every now and again the Rev
clock jumps and it is always when I am driving, it kind of jumps and then
jumps again and will do this all the time.

Hi John and all the list'ers
I have been lurking for awhile and find the feedback very informative.
I have lots to do on the car as I plan on changing the oil seals in the
front axle, looking at the bearing issues and changing the shocks and
springs as the old girl is getting more wobbly in her old age. Will be
keeping you all informed of my ham fisted repairs.
All best.

Hi Simon,
You need to remove the seats, pull back the carpet and then you will see
the inspection hatch.
You then need to remove the hatch to get at the hatch in the actual tank
that hold the fuel pickup and gauge sender unit.
Best done when the tank is virtually empty.
Within the tank there is what looks a bit like a tuppaware tub under the
hatch that hold the fuel near the pickup for when you are at steep
angles.
When I opened mine I found some small globules of water in the tub and a
bit of grit that I sucked out using an old turkey basting pippette
(vital engineering tool !!).
I also cleaned off the small sieve style filter on the end of the pickup
assembly and then blew through the fuel lines and got quite a bit of
black slimey stuff out of the lines to the engine.

John,
Did I get it right? Are you saying your engine idles at 450 revs/min?

Hi John,
I can't remember if you have a manual or an auto, but with the Auto the idle
should be around 750-800rpm.
I'm not surprised it is vibrating at that low tickover.

Hi Julian
I have advanced the revs by the rev button to 600 just to see what happens,
but it was always at 400 revs as long as I can remember but then that can be
a very short period of time. I put it at 800 revs and it seems very fast for
it to idle.
Thanks

You adjust idle revs by turning this screw clockwise.

800/850 revs is what tit should be set for. You need to carry out the
adjustments when the engine is hot - the clold start advance mechanism
raises it up to 1200 before the engine warms up.
