Default Bought a second hand Jato. 3 questions.

#1
With the EZ start, how do I attach the glow plug part? I figure the blue goes on top of the plug, and the yellow is a ground or something. Where do I position the yellow?

#2
I took EZ start off and oiled up the insie of the engine. Now when I roll over the engine with EZ start, it rolls it a few times, then you can hear the EZ start engine working, but not turning the engine. Once you release the button and press it again it does it.

#3
This one is a little tricky. The picture represent the bottom of the front of my car. You know how those 2 pins hold the arms in place? I had to replace an arm, and I accidently put the wrong pin in one of them, which happens to be to short. The top one shows how it should be, about 3mm sticking out the end, and one end is sealed off. I accidently put a short one in, now it's stuck at the sealed end.

I tried:
Oiling it.
Using a magnet.
Magnetising the normal rod, putting it in, and trying to lead the other one out.
Putting super glue on the head of a nail, putting the nail in there, letting it dry, then pulling that.

I'm thinking I might just need an awesome strong magnet.

if the control arm is aluminum heat it up, it might expand enough. then you can retrieve the steel pin with a magnet.

Impossible. The pin is a snug fit in there, and so therefore there's nothing to grab onto.

I'm going to find an old speaker and bust open the magnet from that.

I rebuilt the engine and fixed the EZ start, still need to know where to mount the yellow wire.

I would first take the entire arm with mount off the car. If the mount is plastic I would sacrifice the plastic piece. Once the pins are removed; buy a new mount and start over with the correct pin.


Pass you soon...

Take a smaller screw and put it on the pin and hit it out or enough to grab an end with pliers idk if magnets would work and for the yellow wire put it on the header on the exhaust manifold

I think this would work ^^^. if you have to .drill a hole smaller than the pin in the back side then drive it out from the back side . asuming its closed on the end??..then when you put the correct pin in it won't go clear through.just a thought....

after looking at the exploded view again,you might have to un bolt the entire tranny from the chassis then take the 2 screws out of the bottom of the part that holds the pins on the front of the tranny then you can get to it. hope I got it right.

Not a bad idea. Drill the end through, push the pin out, then block the end up with something. Thanks guys. Thread solved

Damn. I got the last part today, being the carby for the engine, and I tried mounting it. After trying for a while, I searched for an exploded view. I'm missing the spacers between the engine and the engine mount
