Itinerant Air-Cooled

My symptoms are no power to speak of below rpm. At that point turbo boost occurs and power comes up, though no where near what it should be. The engine revs smoothly but runs out of steam before rpm. I’m left to decide if the problem is the AMM or the O2 sensor. If your B FT throws oil around like mine, the throttle body can easily get crudded up and cause problems exactly as you described. All these were fine, just a dirty throttle body caused the problem. Use a small flat-bladed screwdriver to loosen the little locking tab on the end of the lower ball-and-socket. One right-hand thread, the other left-hand. The gasket on my car lifted right off with no fuss, but if you have to scrape be sure to use a plastic or wood scraper so as not to damage the aluminum facing. Swab it out with clean rags and lots of good quality carb cleaner.

They frequently suffer acerbic reviews by those who don’t quite understand them, and they are often removed and replaced by “progressive” centermount carburetors that lack the engineering of the originals that provide dependable service and excellent driveability once you set them up correctly. Here is what is going on with that weird left carburetor, and this will make it all crystal clear to you.

Since the beginning, VW controlled idle speed by a screw that positioned the throttle plate opening. Not much air is required to idle a VW, and they had to dump a lot of gas into the mixture to make sure a combustible mix made it all the way to the cylinders.

One of the most important and basic tasks to perform on your is the setting of the ignition timing. The timing setting is what determines when the spark is going to be fired for each particular spark plug.

The problem is that people fit voltmeters wired to the green circuit, which can be a couple of volts lower than the solenoid i. It’s battery voltage which is important, and any volt-drop between there and the green circuit is down to ageing connections, and the best alternator in the world isn’t going to cure them, although it may cover them up.

This was the case in the 5-pin 2-plug 16ACR from 69 to Initially the 3-pin single-plug alternators used machine sensing i. This is a ‘2-wire’ alternator. Clausager states that a new version of the 16ACR with modified regulator and surge protection was provided in March Possibly because of problems with low battery voltage, in the alternators seem to have reverted to battery sensing again Clausager states the 17ACR was fitted from February 73 now with an additional thin brown in the alternator plug wired back to the solenoid as before, and this seems to have remained the case up to and including the 77 model year at least.

This is a 3-wire alternator, but can be used with a 2-wire harness by connecting the third spade to the output spade in the alternator plug.

How to Hook Up a Tach Dwell Meter by Robert Bayly A tach-dwell meter is a combination electronic device that measures engine rpm as a tachometer and ignition point dwell angle. The tachometer function is self-explanatory; it measures engine speed in revolutions per minute. The dwell function measures the degrees of distributor rotation that ignition points are closed and is directly related to ignition point gap. In fact, the ignition point gap can be set by adjusting the dwell angle.

Attach the red lead on your meter to the negative “-” terminal on the ignition coil.

It’s got red and black alligator clips. It also has this other wire that ends with a red and black connected to this small bar with a twist knob screw on one end. There’s your problem, black gos to body or engine ground. Red goes to the negative terminal on the coil. Same way you hook up an aftermarket tach. However the tach seems to read higher but I’m not sure if I need to divide by 8 for my or how this works. No, the 8cyl readings will be accurate.

The following instructions are for creating a MegaSquirt to Relay Board cable. It is for those who are creating their own harness. With both boxes mounted, measure the distance between them from DB connector to DB connector – this will be the length that you will cut the individual wires.

(Reinsert MS-II after testing, be sure to get it the correct way around – the 6-pin header should be nearest the edge of the PCB.) Check the serial cable and serial circuit.

Report TheNamesDalton answered 3 years ago Im sure the original user that posted this question has their problem fixed by now but I felt it would be a good idea to share some knowledge I have from these processes for anyone that finds this from search. This is not me telling you that “this is the way it needs to be done” or “my way is better!

This is what you will need Most Vortec engines have this from the factory and the TDC engine mark is usually on the timing chain cover Procedure Pointed to 1 when 1 is at TDC on the firing stroke Dont worry about being dead on but it does need to be within 1 tooth out of phase 2 – Start your engine and observe the timing the computer is commanding.

Should be somewhere around to degrees but could be close to that 3 – Hook up your timing light and set the advance on the light to match that of the scanner is showing that the computer is commanding. If you find that your TDC marks already line up then congratulations as you should be playing the lottery since you somehow dropped in your distributor within a degree or so of what the computer sees or your computer did a self-re-learn procedure on the first key cycle of battery connection.

If you run out of left or right movement when turning the distributor then you are more than 1 tooth off and will need to repeat these procedures after re-phasing the disteibutor. Hope this helps someone Thanks 14 people found this helpful.

Unsportsmanshiplike Conduct – There’s a cheater in every sport, and competition tractor pulling is no different. Honest pullers who ignore the cheater s are fools. And when there’s prize money involved, a fool and their money are soon parted.

Posts 10, These two wire types without an internal battery depended on stealing some current from a battery operated ignition coil to charge an internal capacitor to drive the tach circuit. Won’t work on a magneto type system. Also seem to have a small engine tester left over from the 60’s that does required a couple of sized C batteries for operation. But now use a photocell detector with a piece of aluminum tape mounted on the flywheel.

Ha, have to keep up with the times. Looking though my junk piles I wonder why I am still keeping, have plenty of inductive pickups and meters and could design something that would work. But would require a lot more turns on that ceramic core to get a reasonable signal off a magneto. Still have it from , still runs, but sucks gas like crazy, and need two cycle air cooled engine oil to run it for three bucks for a tiny can.

So a two gallon gas can runs about 12 bucks to run it for a short period of time. Was talking to my brother-in-law about this recently, said they were crap, would kill the engine if you hit a weed when cutting the grass. Told him I played with the governor to increase the speed from 3, to close to 4, rpm, so won’t kill the engine in this situation.

Wasted spark with multiple coils It can also support coil per plug in some installs. For wasted spark you require a minimum of single “missing tooth” crank wheel, only engines with an even number of cylinders being supported. You need at least for 4cyl, for 6cyl or for 8cyl. However, the wheel is probably the easiest to obtain.

Dear Fellow Members, I hesitate to do this my hard drive is only 1gb , but I’m going to solicit advice from the collected Willys “brain trust” on this site. I finally got my 58 cj3b purchased three months ago home this past weekend. I know, I know I should be disbarred from the Willys club for waiting so long, but its a long story so don’t ask. The body is solid and straight, no cancer, very little surface rust and even has a solid tool box. It has all it’s parts and pieces to include the original drive train and the remains of three-point hitch it had during its farm days.

Only things missing are the side-view mirror and a spare tire mount.
