    Does anyone know a good/best place to get what I understand is an Idle Control assembly. The 419 starts, runs, then stumbles and almost dies, then you can work the foot throttle to feather it up to 1800 rpm, then it will stumble and die. Can instantly start it again with same results. even when...

    Sounds like air ingress into the fuel supply. Sometimes you can spot a tiny bit of fuel that leaks out when the truck is off (no vacuum on the lines). Following the fuel supply path and loosening/tightening all fittings might find the problem. If no luck with that step, it's possible to drain...

    Ladies and Gentlemen: If this has been covered before, please be kind and direct me toward that resolution. After a few year, my SEE has begun to act strangely - the engine fires and runs well for a few minutes, then acts like a filter is plugged or a governor has gone crazy, will surge and...

    Does anyone know offhand the length and fittings on this hose. Mine has developed a leak and I wanted to have a replacement built before I disassemble this one. Thx for any help you can provide.

    I just use the left stabalizer against the bottom of the bucket, after the boom is turned all the way left to lift the boom into the latch position. Calm, quiet, no drama, very little paint damage to the top of the stabilizer. I have a thumb installed, which limits the full closure of the...

    Do I understand you have the auger head and hydraulics, but was unclear if the auger bit is included. What are you asking for the assembly? Mark Divebuddy@familyscuba.com

    I've done some open wheeled racing also, every time I get tagged with some clag or rocks, I remember why we invented 'wind" shields. It is easier to get rubber off glass than helmets, and you don't flinch as much when a rock tags the windshield instead of your visor. Thankfully Elise and Exige...

    Congrats on getting a working model, what are the odds of two of us owning Lotus Elise / Exige and FLU419 ? So far, the Lotus is a lot easier to work on. A lot fewer moving parts.

    Since this is trending toward a repair and diagnosis site, I thought I would add a little fuel to the fire. Iron Planet has 8-10 more SEEs on auction this week. �� It even looks like several are in pretty good operating shape. Others parts only.

    Welcome to the site, I have gotten a lot of useful info for my particular vehicle. I hope the other threads are as valuable. I have yet to get together with the SA contingent. I live in Midland, but have a place about an hour North of SA where we keep and use our Freightliner/Unimog 419 SEE. I...

    I bought it at an auction, here is the installed picture, it was actually for another model backhoe, but the price was worth the risk we would have to modify it. I didn't, as the booms are all similar, just had to grind down welds on boom first. Picture should give idea as to size. Really...

    You mentioned stowing the hoe in another post. I recently added a mechanical thumb to the backhoe on the see and seem to have trouble getting the boom to over travel to the lock position. I would assume the additional 300+ lbs would assist once it is moving, but it just won't quite swing over. I...

    Second that, used it for years(3 months at a time) in little used outbuildings and RVs with great results, as soon as I forgot, big infestation in short order. I only wish it was effective against wasps, hornets and yellow jackets.

    Thanks, I kinda figured that's where we were, I can still use the survivor to power a winch on a trailer for it's remaining life.

    I pulled the batteries to check water levels, charge levels, etc. One was 70% and the other 95%, so I suspect I may have some other issue, although I may have a dead cell or something, how does that affect a 2 batteries in series system? They are about 7 years old. (Mfg 2011)

    To the room - on a general purpose note: Where are good sources for replacement batteries for the SEE? I know I could cobble together any 2 12v batteries, but I like the fact that these are already secured well in the tray, as I will be doing some rough country maneuvering. It is especially...
