Rebuild Part 1
By Mimi & Alan Dobbs
took a trip to Denver, CO to pick up and bring back to Houston the newest
edition to our family; a Uni-Mog 411.188
spending a couple of hours with the former owner, a good battery charge
with priming the fuel pump, the little 4 cylinder diesel cranked over
(the fact the
temperature was in the single digits didn’t help any!).
It stalled because it got flooded out, so we used low gear and the starter to load it up in our Big-Tex Trailer. This would be a good test for pulling with our new Dodge 3500 Cummins Truck.
of our goals is to make it DOT approved and street legal even though its top
speed is 32mph. The other goal
is to restore the original color and get ride of the “Smurf” blue.
Back in sunny Houston with temperatures in the 70’s all it took was a good battery charge and it started right up.
