  2. Charge Light

    Unimog
    Thanks you guys, I was always under the impression the light was in the charging circuit but perhaps not. I'll get my voltmeter out this weekend and provide an update.
  3. Charge Light

    Unimog
    Guys, On a recent trip on the Rubicon Trail I noticed my charge light (Ladikontr) on my 416 was off with the ignition at the first position (where you would normally start it) normally it is lit. As I was a few miles in I was concerned the system was not charging and I might run out of battery...
  4. 416 Turbo Build and MUCH MORE!

    Unimog
    Hey Bryan I hope you and the family are doing well and the Mog too. Remember this post from your awesome 416 turbo build saga? I'm in the process of welding on a set of beadlock rings and was wondering what your thoughts are on the safety bead part of this....knowing what you know now would...

    Guys, I'm in......reservations are made, I'll be up there Thursday afternoon, Rod and anybody else getting there early, perhaps a quick meet up for cold adult beverages? Rick Montez 416.141
  6. Unimog FLU 419 Turbo build

    Unimog
    I don't think you have squirters but I bet the block is machined for them. Scott at Expedition Imports is selling new 419 blocks and 1 of the pictures shows plugs in the oil galley. Let us know how you're doing with the turbo install.......I'm trying to figure out how to do it without lifting...
  7. Questions you were afraid to ask..how do you check the oil?

    Unimog
    My 416 has a garden variety OM352...... Page 41 of my MB instruction manual says "When checking oil level on the OM352 engine it should be taken into consideration that the oil cooler and various oil passages can drain when the engine has not been run for a longer period of time. In order to...
  8. Rollbar & Hidraulic Pump

    Unimog
    The 419 ROPS has the same hole pattern, and bolt and bushing size as on a 406/416 frame so it will work, the main difference is the height, the Case ROPS are about 6" higher by my eye. I installed a 419 ROPS on my 416, but I had to shorten my bed to make room for it, I think you'll have to as...
  9. PTO u joints

    Unimog
    More info on an old U joint PTO thread Guys, One of my PTO u joints froze up and I could not get it apart so I took it to a local drive line shop and told him it was a Waltersheid/Weasler u joint and he might have to turn down the caps a little bit. He didn't want to turn the caps but said...
  10. U1300L fuel problems/dual tank conversion

    Unimog
    Here's a couple of questions to ask yourself..... How much fuel is in each tank? Could the fuel level be so low that when the truck is moving the dip tubes may be momentarily uncovered? Does the problem occur with both tanks? Can you temporarily bypass the switch and plumb directly to the...
  11. Idle issues, speeding up

    Unimog
    I'm not familiar with the front cover you are referring to but did you try to move the IP lever? Both the hand throttle and the throttle petal should move it. What was the result? Rick Montez 416.141
  12. Idle issues, speeding up

    Unimog
    Thats interesting........The answer to your question is.... the injection pump (IP) controls the flow of fuel to each cylinder and when you move the hand throttle all the way clockwise (up against the engine cover) you should be moving the lever on the IP to the off position (no fuel flow). See...
  13. Idle issues, speeding up

    Unimog
    Hello, Here's a link to a youtube video, at 50 seconds it shows how to adjust the idle with the hand throttle. Hope this helps.... Rick Montez 416.141
  14. 406 clutch issues

    Unimog
    Hello, If you go to post 5 on this PTO thread one of the members has installed (made) a steel shim to adjust the engagement of PTO to transmission gears. I may have to do the same as my PTO was removed and reinstalled and now it is almost impossible to get it into gear (it was fine before)...
  15. U1300L fuel problems/dual tank conversion

    Unimog
    Hello, That 3rd mystery line at the back of the engine is the fuel return line from the injectors, it should return to the tank, I can't help you with the all the other plumbing except to say try using fuel injection hose clamps, the worm drive type you are using can damage your fuel line and...
