Definitely! Especially since I am using a pretty high durometer polyurethane. If it becomes unbearable, I will figure something else out. I have room to go up higher if I want too so maybe legit rubber that's 2" thick might be helpful. I will cross that bridge when I get there!Your engine mounts look fine but you'll probably notice a good bit of transferred vibration. The 4bt is a shaky little devil. Angle type mounts were used in the Ford E350 vans with the 4bt but they weren't too concerned about vibration. The best engine mounts for these things comes from a company named Lord. They make mounts for aircraft and also some vehicles. Below shows their mount. Their main drawback is they are expensive. Anchor makes a similar mount that's about 1/10 the pri
Hey Charlie. I started a new job so I have not been able to get out there and record what is going on. I also had to replace my cheap lift pump because even though it was new, it stopped functioning properly. I replaced it with an Airtex pump and it fired right up.Have you been adjusting the fuel output on the pump. Sounds like you were getting close to runaway. Also, does your pump have a mechanical shut down option? If so, that should shut it off if the electric isn't working. Have you changed the governor spring? That also can cause issues if it's not installed correctly.
My pump doesn't have a manual shut-off arm. So I'm thinking the only way I can test it is by pulling the shut off solenoid and seeing if I can use some needle nose to shut the fuel off manually somehow.Didn't know there was a 3600 RPM governor spring. Was aware of 3200, 3800, and 4200. Most guys stop at 3200. That was really weird with the pump sitting there idling and the solenoid disconnected. I couldn't tell from your video but does your pump have a manual shutdown option? If it does you could use that and forget the electrical part. You have to remove the solenoid, take out its plunger, and put the gutted part back in the hole. Then you just have a push/pull cable in the cab. Which Airtex pump are you running? Just be sure it has enough flow and not too much pressure. There is an optional mechanical piston type lift pump for the VE injection pump which is pretty much fool proof. It's just a tad expensive. Around $375 for all the parts.
24v solenoid is not your problem. They work fine with a good 12v source & will out live a 12v solenoid. When power is disconnected, even with a 24v solenoid the plunger would drop & cut fuel &l shut down engine if nothing is hanging up the plunger. You might want to just take apart & inspect. Most likely a piece of debris is making the plunger hang up.Figured out the problem. Damned 24v solenoid. Had no clue. I am going to order up a 12v solenoid tonight.
I will give that a shot. I assume right off the battery is a good 12v source. I was wondering why it seemed to work just fine and then all of a sudden this scenario occured. Now that I clearanced the bracket that Charlie always talks about, I can pop the old one back in and see if its good. I will clean it a bit and give it a shot.24v solenoid is not your problem.
