Re: Vehicle Speed Sensors

I presume this is unloaded without the computer connected. Indeed, just the scope probe. I would imagine the ECU itself was a high impedance input so should be relatively similar? I didn't realise the 440 would be working on 10V, I think the 940 is working on a 12v signal, I must recheck that, but ...

Re: Vehicle Speed Sensors

So, firstly an apology to Ride_On. It's taken me a ChrisStandardTimePeriod to get to this. There are only a few pictures as I didn't have my camera nearby and had to use my phone. First job was to take the 400 series dash and work out what the power supply section was doing to the standard sensor. h...

Re: Disheartened after work on carb/HG, advice needed

Do not fit a Weber (well, if you are meaning the Weber replacement they made for the Solex, it's worse by an epic margin. DCOE might be acceptable as long as you only ever use full throttle.) The major thing I'd worry about in that post is you say it's dumping neat fuel into the chamber. Which chamb...

Penny pinching or just couldn't be bothered? You could see where they didn't spray on my June '91 car

Re: Duchess The Volvo 340 CVT

You are doing a brilliant job here chap, the rust was bound to pop up at some point though. I've had one of those engine beam bolts snap on pretty much every one I've removed, each time I've added more penetrating oil for more days before hand and heated it up, still always gone.

Re: '85 360 GLS

Have you checked the needle valve in the float bowl?

Cyclemaster has a secondary fuel bowl instead of a choke mech, and the needle valve for it is manually operated. I went to move it after the winter and it was stuck fast, gummed up with "old" (i.e. autumn) fuel

Re: 1987 340

Battery fixing is on the foot of the battery, not over the top, so you wouldn't expect to see it in that photo.

Look engine side of the battery for a strip of metal with 2 10mm nuts
