    Trouble Starting 83 Brat GL

    Well I found out today why that auxiliary fan had gotten hooked up, I disconnected it and the engine boiled over, lol. So let me ask, should the stock EA81 engine have one or two fans? On mine I assume either the central one died, or the thermostat element or wiring failed. Any ideas appreciated to get back to stock.

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed but the cyclops grille that was in transit here by USPS may have gotten lost! Do you have a spare original grille? Thanks again!

    Trouble Starting 83 Brat GL

    Thanks a lot, your technique worked like a champ I think I was flooding it. I just put in a new air cleaner assy, the hose which I think should connect with the intake flap has a bolt on it, see attached.
  4. Hi, I'm having trouble seems like every time I start my 83 Brat GL 1.8. Put in an expensive Odyssey battery with 850cc amps and installed new cables. I realize it's been cold here in NYC, but for instance today temp outside about 40, car turns over easily but won't fire up. Tried starting fluid in the carb, didn't help. I do notice two things, one of the two radiator fans fires up every time when ignition is on, and the low power lamp comes on the dash in the battery readout. Ideas? Thanks again!

    One more thing, does anyone have the two plastic screw holders as seen in this photo of another cyclops?

    You're a genius! Works perfectly better than new! I'll post pics soon, enjoy your weekend.

    I think I'm making a lot of progress, I found a broken green power wire in the old main shroud and soldered in a new one to the motor. Now, here is sequence: 1. Turn on switch. 2. Light comes on and door closes. 3. Turn off switch, light goes off and door opens. So all I need to do is get the door to be in closed position when power is off, and then open when power goes on. Thanks a LOT!

    Single Pole DT, here is their description on Amazon. Yes switch cuts light on and off, when I introduce 12v+ to the green terminal on the motor it cycles.

    Yes, that's exactly how it's wired now but the door opens and stays open, light works fine and I hear the relay engaging. Do you want me to switch the wires?

    I finished the wiring job. When I powered up the relay the first time, the door opened and locked open, does that mean I have to reverse the green and green white wires? Thanks for all the help!

    OK, I'm going to try your setup with 87a relay it seems simpler to me. I'll post again soon after I have the test wiring setup working - thanks again for your help!

    Yes, two for the coil at the bottom and six contacts above it, one pair N.O., one pair N.C.,and 12v fed to top contacts. $12 for a pair of 'em with base disconnects in case it fails. And yes it is a 12v relay.

    Here is my drawing of proposed wiring for Cyclops, 8 pole DPDT relay and original switch. I made one mistake in the drawing, Black/red and Green/red wires in the harness are looped together. Please check over and let me know if all is correct. Thanks a lot!

    Look at Chris' links near the top of this thread, there are two schematics and instructions for using the DPDT relay. Luckily I have a bench top 12v power supply to test everything before it is installed in my Brat. Will share my experiences as I go!
