    Leccy TR6

    22Kw my last guess! Must be running it close to 100Hz as well then? The short cables look about 75mm2? Any German speakers advise power kW and battery voltage? 500+DC? Cheers, Iain.

    Hi, A few comments: #1 I think its a very nice looking car. #2 Boot rack on the wrong way round? #3 Is it the same guy that turned an old Indian car into a 206? #4 The music is from around 70's. The classic German movie " Schnell, schnell Hans, mien assen mit feur" . Available on VHS. Is the motor 55Kw 2 pole? Cheers, Iain.

    Talk Talk IP

    Hi, Anybody use the internet provider called Talk Talk? What a collection of *ankers. Days of my life wasted speaking, texting & using "chat-box" to communicate with these foreign idiots. They have blocked the software that I use to hide my location. I also use it to "appear" in a different country. Want me to pay over 300 quid to terminate my contract!! Africans trying to help. Well hows that going to work? Iain.

    Trigger Wheel Mounting Vitesse

    Hi, The link i showed was for a crowbar suppressor is fitted across the power input connectors to STOP any voltage above 15 volts, for this model.I would fuse both sides. Voltage suppressors are used with a fuse. If it ever requires replacement; it died to protect your electronics Cheers, Iain. PS. The part looks the same, but more normal price

    Hi, eBay item number:162684974768 would protect your ECU if the DC/DC converter died and spat out more than 15 Volts. It costs three times the DC/DC converter... Cheers, Iain.

    Put fuses around it & keep it cool. Should be tickerty boo.

    Hi Alan, That looks like from specs it would stabilise, varying; 5 to 15+ volts, to 13V8 if set. LED display is extra cost. Even if it did tell you the output voltage was 15 volts, I think you would already of guessed that? Cheers, Iain. PS. You would need to keep it away from metal & fuse it correctly. It would need to be kept cool. Low voltage on the input, likely while cranking will cause it to get too hot or luckily shut down. You won't get full spec out of the device, without additional cooling.

    So, your running with a solid state regulator? Shouldn't need that much filtering, compared to Ye Old mechanical one. Not many micros back in the day. Cheers, Iain

    Hi, A link that shows why Tants are better than electrolytic's, at a cost with max ratings lower than other caps. Lower ESR than most. Nice and compact to fit on the board. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tantalum_capacitor One for different types; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electrolytic_capacitor Cheers, Iain.

    Ahh dynamo. I guess a modern alternator is more efficient now, with better silicon. Caps, I would use a tantalum 35v, 63 or 100uF, parallel to a 100nF ceramic disk, 100v. The DC/DC converter i saw was a step down, so no good. A DC/DC boost, buckle converter, fused correctly and set @ 13V8DC would be my choice if going down that route. Cheers, Iain
  11. Hi. Any one bidding on the EBay pair? Don't bid on them or message me, to stop me paying over the odds. Cheers, Iain.

    Hi Nick, Agree about what you say. The second last choice, DC/DC converter, I do not. Also, a modern alternator? I thought they were all the same poles, & hence same frequency? Never measured the frequency, but would like to know the poles? Especially, if changed over the years. Cheers, Iain.

    Hi, Emerald K3. Had Mazda carbon leads and restive plugs. No problems until one lead went bad. Fitted non R plugs, no problem. Fitted a set of nice looking leads from Retro-leads on EBAY. Utter crap. Refund issued and leads in bin. Fitted a set of custom Magnecore expensive leads. Car was able to run again. But; Car breaks down. Strange settings in map and also, car breaks down before level crossing; starter motor gets me out of way. Car breaks down. Will not restart. ECU sent back to Emerald. Emerald check out and return FOC after setting the crank-wheel setting. Was corrupted to Ford from Rover. Fitted R plugs & tickety boo. HT side of things cause loads of problems if not suppressed. Fitting a cheap DC to DC converter has potential for future problems. I have loads of Buck-Boost converters. I would not use them in an attempt to fix your problem. A low ESR Capacitor might be helpful? A 100nF & 100uF might help? Proper grounds and HT noise reduction would be my first port of call. DC-DC converters my last. Cheers, Iain PS. The link provided is for a Step Down converter. Of no use on a 12 volt car!
  14. Hi, Are the Bastuck ones the same as OEM? I'm after a UK drivers one! I have both sides with broken top pieces. I was going to UV glue the wings back on. Near side with broken wings available for free pick up in BB12 7AT. I think the OEM are ABS? Cheers, Iain.
  15. Hi, Parts all Blackened now! Certainly look better.? Tanks are the linear process. Just showing for interest as was interesting for me. Cheers, Iain.
