My 110 runs

There is no tech at all here but I just heard my 110 run for the first time in 6 months!

Congratulations Bill, it's always a terrific feeling when you breathe life into them again. Was a great feeling when I ran my 90 after 2 years off the road and a 7 month rebuild. Good times!

I couldn't believe it to be honest Michael. I turned the key on let the pump run to fill the float bowls, pumped the pedal twice a little long crank over and she fired into life. I only let her run for about 45 seconds. She had throttle response, and I clicked the shift into first and she moved, then reverse for the same.

By the time I shut it off I heard cheering coming from the second floor deck over the driveway. My wife and daughter had heard it fire and came out to cheer lol.

Thanks guys can't wait to button everything up and drive it again!

Did think of one more use for the engine hoist though. That and a strap will be used to put the bumper assembly back on the truck. With the brush guard, bumper, lights and winch it seems to have gotten pretty heavy lol

Same thing happened to me after my rebuild, 200Tdi not run for 12 months, started after about 10 or 12 seconds of cranking. That first 1st gear/reverse shuffle on the drive is sweet as a nut.
