SS1 diff mount help

The rear diff rubber mounts were off a rover p6 from memory. If you have the old Bush get the number off it and Google it. They aren't easy to get hold of and were about £50 each. They occasionally pop up on eBay.

Meant to add I checked the resistor as shown in the Nissan manual and it's dead so it looks like it definitely needs replacing.

Hi quick update. I've been down and checked various things. Pump working correctly injectors firing as the dizzy rotate ( noid light flashing) got nothing on the spark side. How does the power resistor work ? I've got 11v going in but nothing coming out to the coil. Where can I get a new power resis...

Ss1 won't start query.

Hi in reply to Revivors comment. I haven't earthed the coil / bracket. There is a wire on the wiring loom that had a fork electric connector retro fitted that was fitted to the exhaust manifold of all places. I have connected this to the brake pipe mounting nut / bracket (Haven't checked for continu...

Well done some more research and can do some checks on the idle switch. Can't find anything on the correct why the wires in the picture should be connected. Can anyone help ? Thx Mike

Well tried again and now got fault code 23 idle switch. Oh the joy of cars ! Somewhere I have the Nissan Silvia supplement off the forum. I'll get it going if it kills me.

Well at last I'm getting some progress !!! I've a popped a relay in the connector that Jim said and turned the ignition and have a flashing ecu. In normal mode both leds are on and not flashing. Turn the engine over no spark so Turn it to diagnostic mode and I've got three codes. 21 which is ignitio...

Hi Jim, Thanks for the picture, i've seen the R10 relay it's probably u/s as the bonnet had a hole cut in it just above the fuse box to get to the bonnet catch which was broken. I've a few corroded relays. The power resistor has a t shaped connector on it i think, but i'll check tonight down the far...

Hi thanks again for the help. Found the two fuses at the front of the fuse box, that's why the fuel pump powers up off the ignition switch with a earth wire at the pump.(If I wire it any other way it doesn't work. The fuse on the ecu circuit is good, I found that one of the relay wires under the rel...

Hi Thanks for the help. As I said I hate electrics so am struggling a bit. I found the power resistor but what I have found is that the wires were out of the plastic housing / connector when I started looking at the dizzy wiring connector. Which is the correct way round for the wires ? (I may have t...

Well I've spent most of the day trying to sort the electrics. Got the lights working but still can't get the damned thing to fire. Can't find any issues with the wiring but reading through some previous threads where is the power resistor so I can look at that. ? Thx Mike

Hi thanks for the replies. I'll print the wiring diagram off and have a go tomorrow. I wired the earth at the pump as I only had one wire. Is the earth wire shielded ? If so I have a spare wire and will try connecting that. I'll cut the connector block from the dizzy and put a temporary connector in...
