EDIS still needs to see all 35 teeth even in default mode - otherwise it doesn’t know when to fire. If there’s no correction waveform back from the ECU (or its nonsense) then you get the 10 degrees.

I found that the ford sensors seemed to prefer quite a thick trigger wheel (5mm) compared with the Vauxhall one I've previously used.
That’s why I used the trigger wheel recovered from a 1.8 Sierra..

Good day all,

i just got back from the car where i did the following.

1.disconnected the CPS from the wiring
2.disconnected the EDIS module
3.confirmed continuity between the edis connector and the other connectors.Reconnected the EDIS module.
4.provided 12v (starter motor) and grounds ( body bolt)
5.confirmed 12v and grounds voltages at the coil pack connectors ( pin1,2 and 2.3)
6.Connected a 12v low current LED between pins 2 and 1 and pin 2 and 3....
I was expecting to see the LED to flash intermittently based on the EDIS firing at 10 BTDC... but the LED came on ( very dim) and was constantly on...?

so i brought it all back home to test again...

Good day all,

some success with the new CS, a LED bulb on the coil clip ( pin2,3) gave constant rate of blink...so we are game on!! :)
Still need to space the trigger wheel...thinking of adding space by additional nuts between the pulley and the wheel...

Good day all

i think my gear knob on the TR maybe either cross threaded or glued in place, as we could not unscrew it when we dismantled the gearbox, so i had to reinstall it with the cover and shaft in place.
I want to replace the cover now ..so what options do i have short of an angle grinder to shorten the throw in the process which i don't want\need to do?
I could make a cover and use velcro..but cant see that looking too good...?

Can you use a Dremel or similar to cut a slice into the side of the knob and use a wedge (screwdriver blade) to open the knob up and get it off? Then all you'll need is a new knob?

Good idea...but i don't have dremel and knowing me i am bound to destroy the thread...i nearly took the butane torch to it :twisted: ...but resisted the temptation...so far..
