Really nice build, well done.

 

Have you checked that you have a good earth to the engine? If you put a voltmeter between the battery negative and the engine, read what volts you have whilst cranking the engine over. The voltage displayed will be the loss in the system from a bad earth.

 

I think you are doing the correct thing in buying the high torque starter, mine struggles to crank with the standard starter also.

 

Keep up the good work.

Thank you!

I have not checked with a voltmeter, but i have used jumpercables from negative on battery to starterbolt, and from plus on battery to solenoid, and nothing changes.
So i think the hi torque will do it:)
And by the way, before i got the starter i got now, the old one caught on fire, that one allso turned slowly.

That's good, although not the catching fire part! :-)

The new starter is a biiig improvement! Now it turns over superfast :D
It fired up a couple of times, but wont fully start, tomorrow i will go over the ignition parts, timing, and get some fresh fuel on it :)

Well done dude! Nice to hear that the high-torque starter sorted the turning over issues :)

Thanks! So happy it was the starter:D
Here's a video, the old starter used allmost 2sec to turn it over one turn, if you understand :P so a big improvement :)

It`s running!!!! cleaned the spark plugs, drained fueltank and filled it up with fresh fuel, set the timing at 8dgr BTDC and it started right up! 
Have to do the timing with a lamp too perfect it :)
here`s a link to video of it running!

The release plunger appears to have travelled too far in to the clutch cover.
Possible causes of this could be:-

 

1) Did you fit the bearing to the release plunger?
 It is possible it could have fallen off during assembly as there is no circlip to hold it in place.

 

2) Were both the thick, keyed washer and lock washer fitted when fitting the flywheel retaining bolt?

 

3) Were either the flywheel or pressure plate lightened by removing material from the bearing surfaces?

 

4) Have you mixed Verto and pre-Verto parts?

1) that is a possibility, but wouldnt it make a noice when the engine is running?

2) yes.

3) no.

4) no.
