    Zil 131 rattle

    We found this in the end. Not what we were expecting at all. We began by removing section by section anything that could be rotating - water pump, fan belt and so on. When this was fruitless we determined it was coming from the engine. We took the carburettor off when looking down into the engine there was a rod that had used to drive the mechanical fuel pump. At some stage it must have bounced out of its slot started to rattle about. Problem solved.

    Zil 131 rattle

    fan seems fine... It also happens before the engine is running, as you turn the ignition and its turning over.

    Zil 131 rattle

    Haha - thats good advice! Ive also got a coolant over heat light on now... Hmm.
  10. Hello I'm new. I've recently bought a Zil 131 and its a lot of fun. Its developed a rattle I think around the radiator or one of the belts and cannot discern where its coming from. It's also got a coolant heating temp light showing. Little film of the rattle here: https://wetransfer.com/downloads/8d5d596c3fa1978e324e6e820801ea3820180311133300/3f32dc095852be75256cf1827022380b20180311133300/dbeca7 Any thoughts or help would be gratefully received. Thanks Will
