also makes me wonder why on 1st dyno run it only had 150hp atw's,then i decided too get my act together and fix things that had been bugging me like the throttle cable,now getting full throttle and half decent tune another 50hp was added and there is still more in it,by next week it should have 230hp atw's i reckon as dyno dan said its still rich on the secondaries so jet down to 54 on the rear and lets give it another go,this time more rpm last max rpm was about 5200 we will ask a bit more from the crossy.
But I’m still using the 6 cylinder cable, so the principle is the same. The spring binds up on the cable not allowing the full travel of the throttle arm on the carb. I will have a play around with it a bit more this afternoon.
yeah but thats on a v8 we are talking about six cyl set up,very easy on a v8,but east west on a six is a bit tricky,here you can see how i milled a few mm out of the bracket so full throttle can be acheived.
Thanks for another idea, though of incorporating a couple of transistors into my design also but the voltages were so close with a simple voltage divider and 7805 reg that I did not bother. The sender unit I am using is not 0 to 90 ohm though. Have written it down somewhere but dont remember right now. It's a factory xg - xh tank and sender unit with pump and all evap system to satisfy those peski engineers which is another discussion I will have at a later date.
I believe engineers at the time felt it would be more reliable to not use a float with moving parts, but they did not take into account the way fuel changed in chemical composition and the reaction it had on the components, as for my design, primitive yes but functional also. Digital is good too but I fail to see the reason to over engineer the shit out of a fucking Guage interface unit. A capacitor works as well as a timer ic and is cheaper and more than likely avalable as a replacement component for allot longer. Have too big a shed build at the moment going on right now so the old girl is side lined for now safely in a mates garage. Will resume when I finish the build.
