I have listened to diesel from 1940 (9 April) to today 26 mar 2004. Panzers Aircraft trucks ships --- you name them. I think the Hindenburg had the engine off or I would have heard that one too. But one happy sounding diesel stands out like a Caruso in the operaworld. Oldsmobile Royale Brougham ---- Now could that lady sing or what ? She was a peppy chic non smoker. V8 diesel.----but you would never know. (for at least a month). If you really understand what I am writing --- let it sink in ---and it does have "Beef" -- to be found. If you think I am advocating that beginners can solve all their problems by twisting the pump all over hell------ read it again. You will find the place where I said " if you are unsure of yourself go the dial route. " So I say it again -- if you cant tell the fat lady is off key ---do not turn the pump according to Hillbilly tuning procedures.(who knows maybe your hearing aid battery is out of poop) But for the rest of you (99.9%) listen , a motor is always talking to you , and it pays to listen. Now can a diesel sound like shit at idle , and still be ok ??? yes but not any of the diesels mentioned in Hillbilly tuning. And a note for the Mallahat kid --remember the VW is a HIGH speed diesel and it does not like lugging. ---So gear down. Anyone here that can't tell an ignition miss in a gasjob ? by sound. ? curse of the carbon conductor ignition cables. Mark Shepherd -- I know you know about sound, tell them. A good cedar stick in the ear and you are like your doctor .with his stethoscope. Exhaustleak noise ? Piece of cake . A small diameter hose in the ear and Bingo. Got a valve with not enough of clearance ? listen to the exhaust pipe ---no way you can miss it. I am working on a movie " The sound of Diesels " Rudolf you must be in Heaven so give me a sign. PLease Please. Hagar. PS: does crappy fuel make some diesels sound crappy ? you got it first hand right here. 743 Bobcat that purred like a kitten from day one.One fillup of shitty shell and I thought it was mechanical problem.Pumped out shitty fuel , and put in good fuel and she has purred ever since. So you can't tell ? The cat sounded bad and smoked like hell.
