ProJect Posted December 30, 2019 Report Share Posted December 30, 2019 Hey guys! I have a 1982 720 diesel that runs great when it's warmed up. It throws some rich white smoke at cold startup and struggles to get going. It has gotten worse with time. Smells like improperly burnt diesel, luckily not sweet. I figured it must be the glow plugs, so I replaced them. Still an issue. I tested the battery, glow plug wires, and alternator with a multi meter. They all read just fine, but when I turn it over, it takes a while to get to a positive operating voltage. It's got some electrical issues with the fan not working at full blast and the cigarette lighter adapter doesn't work. Fuses are all fine, but maybe the box/ connections? Anywhere else I should look into? Ignition maybe? Thank you! Quote Link to comment
