    Having issues when hot with weak starting, so looking at high torque starter and replacing cables. Renault UN1 transaxle and Ford V6 flywheel but starter seems to be different to the normal RAC407 type but with same 9 teeth pinion. As far as I can tell it is RAC517 The mounting hole pitch...

    Help. Engine speed dips and stalls when changing down.

    Changing down when coming to a stop, when I dip the clutch engine speed undershoots and sometimes it stops. Tickover and starting is fine and if I slow right down to <1000rpm before dipping clutch it drops to tickover as normal. I opened the throttle stops to give it more air but still the same...

    GTD rod change guide?

    Guys, the pic shows the rear guide on my DAX40 rod change to UN1 transaxle. Like a lot of DAX components it could be GTD. Can anyone tell me if it is and where to obtain one? It seems to be a cast in or pushed in rubber with a thin metallic or fibre sleeve that has fallen out so there is too...

    Has anyone assembled these ht plugs?

    I cant find any info on how to assemble these. Has anyone done these? Getting the lead through the plug is a major challenge but after this and crimping I am not sure whether the brass plug ends up with a 90deg bend in it and exactly how the white plastic sleeve goes in. These are for the ford...

    Can I connect Icknield Rev Counter to ecu?

    I have an Icknield rev counter which was connected to the old distributor contact breaker. Will it now work with my Emerald K6 ecu which gives a 0-12v pulsed output? Just in case the answer is no you will kill the rev counter. :stunned: Dave

    AFR gauge recommendation?

    I looked for wideband AFR gauges, which seemed a little overpriced for what I thought was essentially a 0-5V gauge. (I already have a Bosch WB sensor and controller feeding 0-5v to an Emerald K6 ecu). So, I tried my multimeter, but impedance is too low and drags down the signal to the ecu. Any...

    Help! Jenveys butterfly looseness.

    Started to balance Jenvey pairs at idle. Number 5 was reading 3 times more flow than all the others including its brother number 6. I see that the butterfly has some play relative to its brother which explains the symptom. I tried to remove screws holding the Jenvey nameplate on but couldn't...

    Plug leads for Gen II Ford coils.

    What's the solution here, buy Gen II coil end connectors and mod my own leads, get 2 sets of Fiesta leads or what have others done. Coils are mounted at the front end of each cylinder head, so I need to watch out for a little additional length for the leads that cross to the other side. Dave

    Help! Intake manifold not fitting well

    I fitted the intake manifold, but was suspicious of the fit as the lower part of the gasket looked a bit loose, sure enough I can get a feeler gauge in there. Not just in one place, but each cylinder. The top part of the gasket is sealed but not the bottom as though the angle is different. As I...

    Seat Grommets repair kit

    I had a couple of grommets pop out of the seats a while ago. Yesterday, I came across this 'Tarpaulin repair kit' at a gardening show, which is a fair match for what is on the seats. Worth a try. Dave

    Installation of Jenveys with Emerald ECU on my 302

    Just preparing to install over the winter, so I thought that I should start a thread. I already have the main parts except swirl pot, trumpets and 3 way valve. This will be a wasted spark system without distributor. I'm no expert, never done it before but confident as I do have plenty of...
