I just got my '07 919 back together after doing a major service on it and it will not fire up. I'm hoping someone can suggest where to look. I did so much to it I'm not sure where to go now.
All back together the symptom is: it will crank the engine and the only response from the motor is the occasional, intermittent "PUT" from the exhaust. I do smell a touch of burnt fuel, but it does not even try to start running. It was running well before the service.
What I did:
- 38000 mile valve adjustment, (adjusted 6 valves that were on the loose side so I went with the next-size-up shim. just small adjustments. I successfully did this work at 20k miles as well.)
oil and filter replaced
spark plugs replaced
Coolant flush and replace
replaced fuel filter
replaced fuel pressure regulator because I noticed a drop in MPG after it sat past winter and heard that is a common culprit.
Turning the key to run I hear the fuel pump start and the new pressure regulator makes a little whine sound for 1 second (I can feel the vibration with my finger on it, this is new. The old one did not make that noise). Turn key to "start" and the engine cranks a couple times then: PUT... PUT-PUT........PUT, PUT.........PUT.........
And that's it.
I checked the wires on the ignition coil thinking I might have reversed them. black and white wire on the black terminal, blue and yellow wires are on the blue terminal. That makes sense to me... I checked the plug wires and they are all in the right holes. I looked for other wires that I forgot to plug back in, but I don't see anything...
My only guess left is that I some how got the cams put back in wrong??? I turned the engine so the timing marks were facing out and flush with the case when I took them out and put them back in the same way I'm pretty sure
... But I was going a little fast... So I'm wondering if I somehow messed that up.
Any other ideas? I'm hoping I just missed a plug somewhere or something.
