Why don't you ring Steve Broughton Terry. He's, the man for MBE stuff as you know!

I also think you should check the date for 3 sisters, I was under the impression it was Sunday, not saturday.....

Also, is there a spark when cranking? If so, then the crank sensor works. If no spark, start with the crank sensor. If it sparks, and won't run, then the TPS may be a problem, but how do you intend to set this up once replaced? Does it not need software? & If you have software, use the trouble shooting to find the fault.....

yes i was about to say that on my dta it records fauly reading [had a dodgy crank sensor once ]and it showed over 14000rpm rev max.

which was causing engine cut out.

throttle pot may just need resetting for open /close settings

Paul

3 sisters is Sunday but need to sort out by Saturday

I hav not testd anything myself but Steve says it tries to fire ( even backfire) and plugs are wet

If crank sensor faulty would it fire at all?

Not sure I have full MBE software but it can bee downloaded so I hope I have a serial lead to connect to ECU

Its a major issue as I am not available until Friday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Has he check everything else terry before messing with the electrics such as the actual timing or fuel pressure reg to see if it's over fueling and flooding the car.

fitted new plugs to get it started but within 20 scs it was ovefuelling spewing out nasty exhaust smoke

Spoke to Paul Exon who believes it could be a throttle pot issue

Going to take car to him tomorrow and hope its a simple reinstall of ecu map and check throttle pot etc
