Engine and Transmission / Re: Strange happenings with timing

Got a ported throttle body? Or a dewedged one? I had issues when I dewedged my first one about 12 years ago. I've read a lot of people having hesitation issues with ported TB's. I just put it down to too much air causing lag (effectively). Not sure this would make it run badly though, I would imagine it just affects tickover on/off throttle response. If everything is definitely correct (timing, components working correctly, wiring all ok and not intermittently snapping) then it sounds like something mechanically adjustable. Maybe try a few bits off Neils car like ECU to see if that makes any difference?

Could someone do a quick write up or a few pointers on what needs doing to this oil way please. I'm on with rebuilding a knackered CEG box as a temp atm so I wouldn't mind getting my head around it with this box then doing it on which ever new box I get for long term:-)

Think with what ive got I need all the cooling I can get

Photos and videos / Bit of fun, car spraying
« Last post by NealPeal on September 11, 2018, 03:21:58 pm »
I did a bit of a video-memory of me and my Dad spraying the car

https://youtu.be/sEyH_FtCstM

Backed by a few songs I sing on, this is mainly CCTV from the front of the house...
My Dad is the sprayer, I just mix and move...

It was OK for 10 years (we sprayed it perfect before), then when it got covered in sand the clearcoat went pockled. Covered when next-door thought it made their drive look clean by just chucking sand on the bricks...

But it's always fun to work with my Dad, here's the proof

It’s definitely the right dizzy it’s an original Bosch that came with the engine it’s just been rebuilt and everything internal is correct hall sneder is wired up spindle is the correct way up etc it has never been right since the distributor cap filled with oil and the rotary arm got chewed up!

This came up because there was a good change in acceleration on the day with the timing set with the it done it idle compared to held at 2kRPM. I was holding the revs up which gave it boost, but hesitation.. With special chips and big injectors and porting et al, really it needs to go on a dyno, even if just 2 minutes to set the timing. That PDF has quite a bit of nice generic info, worth a browse!
Cool
