    Help!

    Well maybe you should of mention motor has been sitting for 1 1/2 years. So I take it you never spun up the oil pump through the dizzy hole to lube the cam and get oil pressure BEFORE you tried to run it? I'll leave you with it..... Sent from my S21 using Tapatalk

    Help!

    Why aren't you just returning it to the 'professional' guys who built it? Seems silly to be pulling apart a motor that's under warranty. Sent from my S21 using Tapatalk

    Starter is already off Thom. Whatever it is it's internal. Sent from my S21 using Tapatalk

    There's something seriously wrong mate. Either the cam is seized or there is something like too long pushrods etc. Don't fark with it, take it to the muppets that rebuilt it and get them to fix it. If you mess with it too much you will void your warranty. Sent from my S21 using Tapatalk

    Hey Steve, did you have it running properly at some stage? Or had it done this since you got it back? Sent from my S21 using Tapatalk

    Use some WD40 on the threads to loosen the filter up a bit, they get pretty dusty under there. Mine was being a gutless pig awhile back, ended up being blocked/dirty fuel filter. Sent from my S21 using Tapatalk

    Fuel filter, under ute, passenger side, just behind the door. Change that and see how you go. Sent from my S21 using Tapatalk

  9. Paint mate, powdercoat chips and gets moisture under it. Just sand them back and hit them with some matt black kill rust or similar. Sent from my S21 using Tapatalk

    Oh, don't forget to do fuel filter....often small overlooked things like that. Sent from my S21 using Tapatalk
  11. Ok, was just in the garage tinkering. Now first up let's get this 100% correct. When replacing the ecu in an EA-ED+XG with an EL ecu, the CORRECT timing is TDC or 0 degrees. With or without j3, it is a FACT. End of story. You can see this easily by looking at the timing at idle. If you left your timing at 10btdc as per EA-ED+XG and put the EL ecu in, with or without j3 chip, you are running 10 degrees too advanced through the entire rev range. If you have a digital timing light you will see the idle timing is around 30btdc. It should be in the 15-20btdc range. I searched high and low for this answer and it was right in front of me. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise and if you want to safely run your motor on EA-ED+XG with an EL ecu. TDC as base timing. Thanks to my Equus digital tach advance timing light for confirming my theory. Sent from my S21 using Tapatalk

    Ok mate, that's a good start and not too expensive. Fuel pump sounds like it needed doing anyway. Let me know how it goes after that. Sent from my S21 using Tapatalk

    Dunno dean I don't run gas on mine. Just seemed strange. But its running shit both ways so must be flow, fuel, air or electronics. Sent from my S21 using Tapatalk
  14. Rightio, Just did a comparison look at the Spark MBT tables between the stock EL XR6 tune and my Custom j3 tune. Standard EL XR6 ecu timing at 600rpm is 14btdc and at 900rpm is 15.5btdc. Custom j3 tune timing at 600rpm is 15btdc and at 900rpm is 16.5btdc. So with Stock EL XR6 ecu and no chip at idle it has to be about 14.5-15btdc. With j3 chip I would expect around 15.5-16btdc at idle. So will see what shows up at 10btdc base timing and Obtdc or TDC base timing when at idle. Sent from my S21 using Tapatalk

    I agree with Bear mate, didn't think fuel pump would run when running on gas. Is it running rich, blowing a bit of black smoke when you rev it? Could be a few things. XG's can be a bit hard to diagnose, but keep at it and I'll see if I can help along the way. Sent from my S21 using Tapatalk
