    Mini diesel engine.

    thanks for your thoughts...it is indeed very tricky and like i mentioned in one of my private messages Find Hansen said himself it is almost impossible to lap a such small Plunger in our Home Workshops with out machines . he said itr woill work for a short time and then it get lweaks, many times...

    that is unfortunatley impossible because if the ball gets stuck there is no way to get im back out, the jhole on the bottom is only 0.5mm no chance to use such a think wire to get that ball back out . i will keep that in mind and maybe try ona test cylinder

    thanks for that info! i think i did exact that mistake that i forced tomuch out of the pump..., and my thoughts about it are as follow: when u hit the injection tester with the finger, it cant generate the same momentum as a injection pump cam ! the cam hits the pump much faster and shorter...

    Mini diesel engine.

    here a video of my injector at work ! :) but this was with a lwaking pump, at first as thwe pump was tight it was much better than that but i think this video shows that it is possible to make em as small as find hansen did ( body is about 12mm ) needs a non return ball vlve and a 0.94mm needle...

    Mini diesel engine.

    no on the plunger in the bottom, cut a groove into the plunger and fit the o ring. this might needs a littler testing and some refinements.
