Highly recommended, just bought some gaskets off him and they arrived first thing the following morning.  Helpful and knowledgable!

 greg has written here in the forum somewhere about the starter solinoid sticking, if you can find the post you could try that, - something about taping the solinoid with a piece of wood with the key in the start position.

 It may well be the fuel shut off valve / switch sticking if it turns over but doesn't start & if it does not turn over then yes it may well be the solenoid, it might also be just a bad connection on the back of t or it might be the low tension lead between the starter relay on the bulk head (under the radiator expansion tank) and the solenoid & is usually white with a red tracer.

Give more info if you can

yesterday they told me that my engine is fully integrated and totally worn out, my world just collapsed.,because there's a whole story to this.
I compare him with a piece of my life.

I had a serious traffic accident in 2002, 1 month comma 6 mth high care 1.5 years rehabilitation. It was fighting every day and give up was not for me.
Now they tell casually to throw my mobilhome away, this I DO NOT

new engine is an option, but then I have a bare engine and there is still much construction, and costs much.

Here in belgium my dodgie become viewed as scrap metal.

So my last hope is with you. I'm looking for a motor preferably complete.  Serie 4. 236 buildingyear 1980

Thanks dodgers!
