So when doing an efi swirlpot, is the pump supplying the pot a normal pressure one, whilst obviously the one taking to the injectors is high pressure

Yep.

A new Arduino project..

This one is only a simple application (at the moment!) - I've actually bought an ELEGOO UNO which at a tenner next day from Amazon I thought was worth a punt. Should cope with reading RPM and throttle position OK I would have thought (that should do for now). I might want to go closed loop at some p...

A new Arduino project..

Allegedly PWM roughly equates to position because it’s spring loaded to return. From what I can find out so far, the PWM frequency is about 500Hz (or 5kHz from another source); max duty cycle is about 80%. The two feedback pots probably work OK - one rises on opening and one falls (0-5k). Anyway - I...

A new Arduino project..

It’s (effectively) a DBW - or electronic throttle body. It may, or may not, need a H driver like a stepper motor (even though there’s only one set of windings); there seem to be plenty of add on boards for that but do I need one? It’s spring return so I’m assuming you don’t need to drive it to rest ...

Until the “DFS sale” is outlawed, ECP will follow the same model I fear.

As always, shop around people!

I just tried pricing up a battery for my SS1 and even with the 60% discount it is no cheaper than the same battery on ebay so it looks like they inflate prices to then knock 60% 0ff ?
got it in one..

Another Euro car parts offer

Mixed results and annoying you have to wait until they have "sale of the week" to get a sensible price but they are convenient for me (as Ian found :mrgreen: ). I've had batteries replaced without issue and other DOA parts, although annoying when you get bits that last minutes. Need to do research a...

servo

I've only seen 3 single circuit Scimitars converted to dual circuit integrated servos - one was the red Coupe at QRG currently (uses an SE6, not 6a setup) and Dark Star's Coupe which uses an SS1 pedal box, servo and a Corky special master cylinder (a 6a one effectively). I'll not mention Jim K's "Di...

The ViaRETRO Scimitar SE6a

It's rare to blow between 2 cylinders - there's a lot of space for it to bridge - they normally go between the cylinder and adjacent waterway or was that what was meant? Water loss in itself may have just been a failed inlet manifold gasket, and a failed head gasket can then ensue due to localised o...
