Cheers for the heads up Chris. The fuel pump is definitely kicking in on the key because I have installed all new fuel lines to and from the tank and I’m get pressure at the cold start valve. But its good to a bit more useful wiring. My Nos kit is being delivered tomorrow afternoon to my works. So for once I can’t wait to go in on afternoons lol. So it might be running by thr weekend. Better finish my exhaust off then wire all those bloody gauges and piggy backs urgh. I hate wiring. Much prefer fabrication.
Its arrived as described. Big grin when I opened the box.
I was a bit scared by the shear size of the Nos bottle at first. Because I wanted to mount it on the rear window shelf bit. Above the coat hanger. As I wanted to fit a CRY02 kit( CO2 sprayer kit to cool the charge temps down) for those track and show days. I just didn't realise how big a 10lb bottle is. So it will be mounted in between the seats where the CD storage cupboard thing is and I guess the CRY02 bottle will have to wait for now lol.
I'll post a picture tomorrow of a quick mock up. Then sort it all out this weekend...
It sure is. Just need to get a vent pipe for it so I can safely mount it in between the seats. Otherwise one small leak and I’ll be laughing my tits off whilst driving. I would make one but I think for safety I’ll get a ce marked tube and mount it through the tunnel above the fuel tank.
Just a depressing update. The bloody engine has no compression on all cylinders. So after a quick glance looks like the cam belt has jumped some teeth. Well that's what I'm thinking due to the engine not firing and then all of a sudden spinning over faster. So looks like I will have to have a proper look this weekend... Any suggestions would be appreciated for this minor set back. My fault I should have checked the belt before refitting the engine. Although it was running when removed. Cheers in advance for any help or a spare engine that is reasonably priced. I've had to turn a 10mm socket right down on the lathe because its a tight to get the timing case bolts out with the engine in situ. If anyone has done a cam belt some tips would be great. Many thanks
Yeah it did sound like the cam timing was your issue. Very strange, especially if it was running ok and hasn't changed.
I think you mentioned it had got overfueled, so it may be that it's backfired and jumped that way. From what I can see the tensioner wasn't meant to tension backwards. Either that or its ripped teeth off somewhere.
Easy enough to do in situ, just a little narrow. I have a small plastic mirror for these jobs, makes it easy to check without too much contortionist work.
Now would be the time to do it mate. As long as your handy with a welder theres no reason why not. I’ve kept a lot of costs down by machining my own parts and fabricating 90% of my parts. Im waiting to hear from Pat about a 3vz and will be pulling the engine back out for a full strip downon sunday as I have found some foreign objects in cylinder no. 4. But can’t tell what it is on the oscilloscope properly. A ball ache but it means I can tidy up a few welds and some wires etc.
