  1. Hi, if you keep the pair matching & wire the coil incorrectly, only two wires from opposite corners will be required to correct the wiring. You can swap wires of individual pairs with no problem if this helps wire runs.
  2. Hi, a bit late! Just wanted to say I lived in Osnabruck in the 70's. Went to school there. I met some really nice ex Wehrmacht grandads. Happy days when your dad is God in the Army. Cheers, Iain. Just saying.
  3. Hi, the 063 would not be my choice even if gratis. Far better batteries out there. I'm sure the quality 063 will give many years of life if never abused & treated with respect. Especially if it exceeds the original spec & fitted to a standard car. I would fit a larger volume type with good spec/cost. I would not throw away a working Ctek if I was given one. I use my car. Cheers, Iain.
  4. Hi iani, You are welcome to my old & new SW & HW programs. mine are wasted spark, TPS only, ITB & Mazda/Jag injectors at ? flow. Peak torque & HP calculated at engine, I have on PDF Mid 20's on a good tank. Lambda sensor and control. Cheers, Iain.
  5. Hi, The pairs should be 1&6, 2&5, 3&4. no idea which pair is first or last. Emerald ECU? Any maps to share? Cheers, Iain.
  6. Hi aoie, I see you have electricall connected the aluminium radiator to the chassis. I have insulated mine from the chassis with nylon hardware; I don't want any corrision happening with the radiator. Cheers, Iain.
  7. That's one happy horse. I have the TR6 J type with OD available on 2 and above. Very usefull. works faultlessly from low RPM. High oil viscosity will slow engagement. Thinner the better for pressure. Nice looking switch placement. I wish to add a switch to my box to tell me when I am not in gear. Cheers, Iain.
  8. Hi, I have had the LC-1. Sensor not very good. Died. I have an LC-2. Better sensor technolgy. Died. I like the AEM as has the better sensor & a gauge to suplement the anal o/p. Waiting to fit new sensor. Cheers, Iain.
  9. Hi, I thought I have posted before, but can not locate. Every setting seems to be wrong, incorect or just plain implausible? Cheers, Iain.
  10. Hi, new Hispec 11" 10mm grooved disks ordered. Didn't feel a need for holes as fine in water. Was going to be 1144's but ended up ordering DS2500's. Master cylinder is being replaced with a Dual/Tandem system. Rear handbrake system getting changed to one that works. Cheers, Iain.
  11. Hi, my air filter is about 100 Cm's from the inlet plenum. Only way I could guarantee "cold" air at low car velocity. I doubt at WOT I have a positive DP. Like to imagine I do! Cheers, Iain.
  12. Hi, You do not want less than atmospheric pressure in your "plenum". I hope when i'm driving along its positive. You want the highest pressure differential possible. Cheers, Iain. Edit. Inlet absolute pressure will always be lower than atmospheric, So will always want to pull from somewhere. Cheers, Iain.
  13. Hi John, I have connected the bottom of a catch/separator tank to the mechanical fuel pump hole in the block. Filtered atmosphere to the rocker box via hose joiner AKA PCV valve. The final connection is between top of catch tank & inlet manifold. Via the manual adjustable ICV. I have to use the ICV inlet as its the only available connection to inlet manifold. idle RPM not too effected as I use dredded ignition advance to control idle. Mk I gave great clouds of smoke on acceleration after arriving at the end of slip roads. Added a long 1/2" ID hose to top of catch tank and a small filter. Mk II was born. No more visible smoke. Car in garage getting seals replaced to cure the front-end leak. A complete rethink required for MkIII. & that's why my invention is kak. Cheers, Iain.
  14. Hi, Nice engines. Sound advice. Has potential to eliminate oil leaks. My attempt of PCV is a fail. Do not connect to an unused mechanical fuel pump blanking plate unless you block flow while engine running. Cheers, Iain. Cheers, Iain.
  15. Hi, the coil pack will consume less average current than the single coil with distributor. No doubt about that. The problem I have had for over 25 years is that as soon as you start installing relays to reduce the load on the "white" ignition wire is that the WL terminal will feed power to keep these relays on when ignition is switched off. A diode will fix this problem & I have one fitted. The location might have an effect on the regulating voltage? The inclusion will effect the cut-in voltage on engine start. Could be problem with poor fast idle control. Since I have installed an LED ignition light and parallel 47R/Diode My new problem has manifested as that the cabin fan now keeps the ignition on if it's rotating prior to engine shutdown. A diode will cure this when placed in series with the blower motor feed. A way I will not bother with; is adding a relay and making the ignition light & feed separate with another relay. Or will I? Cheers, Iain.
