My 1984 Rabbit 1.6L Turbo blockheater quit summer of 2004. ---- Preheating swirlchambers
using the plugs at half voltage ? ---just what I need right now to get to pringtime.
I have big NiCads with links between cells so no problem.
BUT I am going to my Ham shack dumpster stash and get a 6 volt 30 Amp
Will let you all know how it goes. Will it work ? ----I will bet my ass. ---AGAIN.
1.2 Volts times 4 to start with ----18 dollars a plug ? my dementia retreats real fast.
The beauty of the filament transformer ? I can use my HIOKI 3100. If you ever see one on a garage sale ? grab it . I have two and they are good instruments. Only goes to 300 Amps
but for you VW Gensetters that is perfect. Lowest scale 0 to 6 amps full scale.
For the battery setup ? I use the cTc 6.99 Dollar cutie C700 -- 100 --37. Nicest looking ammeter I ever saw for 7 dollars canadian.
We havde to find a good name for that one if it works. I bet 50 dollars it will ? any takers ?
Mike Smith try that one will you ? ----you are a HAM. --- 4 hours heat will do.
And MIKE advance the pump 3 pencil lines ---remember to tighten FOUR bolts.
