      Eventually got the bitch out, but don’t have a BSPT tap. Hopefully the threads are ok, was thinking about cleaning up the starter motor while it’s off then fitting it and cranking it over to purge any crap out. Does anyone know where the oil feed...

      Continued to look for the low oil pressure problem at start up and decided to fit an oil pressure gauge to the engine. Wanted to remove the oil pressure sensor for the EDIC control and it all turned to s***💩 Snapped off in the block, so now the...

      Worked on fixing the fuel gauge that didn’t seem accurate, previously l had another spare that I fitted but no good. After some playing around I checked the earth wiring and found no continuity. Stripped back the wiring under the passenger seat...

      Also been looking into the cold start with low oil pressure, tried another sender l had still the same. It usually starts stright away but shutdown one to two times depending on ambient temp. If l disconnect the oil sender for the edic shutdown...

      Then worked out the positioning of the new spring bush tube and cut and die grinder to fit nice and square. Then cleaned it up in the sandblaster. New vs old, ready to be welded

      Waiting on parts to arrive for my other vehicles, so wanted to do something about the front spring bushes. I bought the ARB conversion bushes but they fell apart while just driving in and out of my workshop. So used some old hangers from the rear...

      have you tried cleaning the contact points on the COR? they do get pitted over the years which can cause resistance and voltage drop

      I swapped the relays over on the COR and tried cleaning the contacts on the fuel relay

      After some frustrations chasing voltage drops and suspecting the fuel relay l decided to swap in a standard pump l had. The voltage at idle went to 8 volts and 12 volts under acceleration so l decided the Walbro 460 could be drawing too much amps...

      Spent more time checking voltages, at idle and cruise the fuel pump receives around 7 volts via the resistor. This seems to be ok but under full throttle acceleration it should receive 12 volts or more. I am not seeing the 12 and more like 10ish...

      Removed pump and all seems fine, checked voltages at the pump and they seem low. Full throttle is only seeing 10.5 volts so not pushing enough fuel l assume. Checked the flow rate of the pump and it seems ok, was comparing fake pumps vs genuine...

      Got a new wastegate spring to increase boost to 7.5psi or 0.5 bar. After measuring the original 5psi spring it was about 30mm OD, so couldn’t buy a turbosmart spring which are readily available. Found a Kinugawa spring was the right size...
