  1. Have you looked at the 14Point7 range of "EFI" products? The original version of the Spartan sensor is still in my GT6 and I think it is one component that has NOT given me trouble!!!! Alan was very helpful in fixing my mistake with his product. Cheers, Doug

    Hi John, what if I joined the forum and you logged in under my profile or does anyone else here have a membership they could share with John? How about making up a new Gmail email account? Cheers, Doug
  3. Hi Nick, Your GT6 looks great! Here are the maps I am using on my 2500 (Mk1 PI ???) with the Triumph 25/65 cam with 0.345 lift. Bosch injectors 19lb/2.9cc @ 3 bar. Not quite fully fleshed out around the edges but still working well. The Accel Enrich is still doing my head in I tried installing a knock sensor to help set the timing but I had more trouble than John is having with his Megajolt so gave up!! Cheers, Doug afrTable1Tbl_2018-04-08_11.31.53.table ignitionTbl1_2018-04-08_11.31.13.table veTable1Tbl_2018-04-08_11.30.10.table

    Hi John, I fully sympathize with your situation and the only "not bad" thing is that it is not JUST you that has been in that canoe up that same creek! Do you have someone close by with a windows laptop that you can do a clean install of the Megajolt software then try an connect to your car? Has anyone on the Megajolt forum put any suggestions forward? I found this on the Megajolt forum..... There does seem to be many "communication" issues..... This is an initial installation and I have not been able to successfully communicate with the pre-assembled unit. I have verified serial level signals present at the phone connector on the proper pins using a true serial port computer running the latest GUI release on a digital scope. The cable was constructed to the exact specs as listed in the installation doc [TXD to RXD ] There is verified DC power to the megajolt unit and have read every document pertaining to troubleshooting listed on this website and forum . Solved. Comm issue due to mistaken TXD signal. Handshaking now achieved. I don't know what it (TXD/RXD) means but does your system use it? Cheers, Doug

    Congratulations Alan!!! The beauty of the digital map and Tunerstudio is you can adjust just the small area causing problems on the fly. When I was setting up my ignition map, I was getting pinging around 1300 to 2000 rpm and 70 to 80 kPa . Whilst driving I could hear the pinging and see on my laptop where the car was reading how much timing advance to use. The map was saying 17 degrees, so I changed that small area down to 14 degrees and the pinging got less, so I changed it to 11 and the pinging was gone. All this was done with out effecting the rest of the map. The same thing can be done with fuel instead of swapping or sanding down the SU needles. Cheers, Doug

    Sorry John, my mistake, Tunerstudio is the tuning software for megaSQUIRT not your megaJOLT. Still it seems like a communication problem with your adapter. Getting windows to do anything you want it to do is always a pain. Keep going, you will get there. You will be able to look back and laugh at this experience when you get to the "next life"!!!!! That what I keep telling myself anyway.

    Hi John, I have heard that not all USB-Serial adaptors will work for tunersutdio. Might be best best to try a "recommended" brand from DIY Autotune etc, or at least borrow a working adapter to confirm your system. I also remember in early Megasquirts you had to set the baud rate of your adapter in Tunerstudio. MS1 used 9600 and MS2 went to 115,000. Don't know if this applies to MJolts??? If you are using Tunerstudio, have you got the latest update? If you are using a very old version, updating may make setting up communicating easier. Cheers, Doug

    Hi John, I feel your pain when trying to learn the new language of this magic. The young engineers use "our" words but they have a different meaning or interpretation. I blame Bill Gates for this ..... Who would have designed a desktop computer in the 1950s that used the "ON" button to turn it off!!!!!! You are thinking of vacuum as the engine trying to suck air in and it gets harder (MORE vacuum) to suck with your hand/throttle blocking the air intake. The vacuum sensor is measuring pressure hence 0 kPa with engine off, 30 kPa idling with the air walking into the engine, 100kPa with the air running into the engine and 120kPa with the air being forced/blown in. Does this help get your head around it? Funny things about vacuum cleaners, most people think that when they block the end off and the motor revs faster, it is "sucking" harder. The motor spins faster because it is now spinning in a "still vacuum" instead of in air. It is easier to spin a fan in a vacuum, hence the rise in RPM. The power draw from the blocked motor also drops as it is not performing as much "work". The other thing about vacuum cleaners is that the motor doesn't actually "suck" the dirt up. The motor creates a vacuum in the machine and the surrounding air pressure "pushes" the dirt up the hose. Cheers,

    Hi John, you may be passed this photo now but this is what I used to remind me how everything lined up..... The original pulley is at TDC with the original timing mark and indicator. The (dirty greasy oily) VR sensor is aligned with the 6th tooth from the missing tooth which is at about 3 o' clock in this photo. If you find that the coils are firing in a different order than expected, you may have the same problem that I had when my coil "sequence" was different to all the diagrams I found. This was in the 4 connection plug. The connectors were numbered 1,2,3,4 left to right on one pack, but 4,3,2,1 left to right on the other. Hopefully the sequence should be indicated somewhere near/in the socket. I did notice that both coil packs firing sequence were A C B where B is the pack in the middle. Why did they do it this way? Why not A B C (Left, middle, right) Is this a "heat protection" sequence????? If you do need to swap you coil sequence around to get it running, perhaps you should aim to repeat the Left, right middle, sequence????? Cheers, Doug

    John, if I may step into the realm of silly questions for a moment, are you using the plug leads that came with/suit the coil pack? You haven't cobbled together old Triumph plug leads to "get it going?

    Are you you guys sure the Motorcraft drawing is incorrect for a Triumph? The numbers "inside" the box is the coil pack labeling. The numbers outside the box are the Spark Plug numbers (P1, P2 etc). Plug Sequence 153624 goes with Coil pack ACBACB. Both drawings should be correct??? Cheers, Doug

    Hi Alan, yes it is very confusing especially as I am pretty sure I am "numerically dyslexic" ( Dyscalculia)!!!! I think it is the numbering on the coil packs that throws everything into confusion. The coils fire in the A, C, B order, so we have to match our Triumph firing order to the coil pack order. Both coil packs are shown with plug No1 and Plug No6 connected to Coil A, Coil C has plugs 5 & 2 , Coil B has plugs 3 & 4. Where I also ran into trouble was not reading the 4 pin plug correctly and just counting from left to right as per Johns diagram. I hope this make sense!!! Cheers, Doug

    Hi John, If your plug part number has an "R" in it , the plug is a resistor type. eg BPR5ES-11. What brand of coil pack do you have? The one I was having trouble with was a different configuration to the diagram you have posted. My coil pack on the left looked for all intents and purposes to be the same as all the others except you will notice that the four pin plug is numbered in the opposite direction and the plug wires (P1 - P6) are a different sequence. With the plug wires correctly sequenced correctly, it fired first pop! Cheers, Doug
