Sunday Jobs

My 5/8 impact socket arrived this week, so I got it into my breaker bar and got the crank pulley removed.

Then got the new toothed pulley fitted, also used a new.bolt and washer, and fitted and adjusted a new gates belt.

Whilst I had the bonnet off I took off the red oil catch can

And replaced it with a blue one.

The new can has a pipe into the can with holes drilled in it, then some wire wool to allow the oil to hold and not just vent out.

I might have chance to fit the crank sensor tomorrow and get another step closer to the Nodiz install.

Got my sensor bracket fitted today.

OMG with a sump guard, and fat hands that was probably the worst bit so far !

Anyhow, test fitted the sensor and it's quite a distance from the wheel.

I suspect some bending in it's future !

Spoke to QED who sell the sensor bracket.

They have sold hundreds and never heard of a problem, so I sent them some pictures of others that don't fit without modification. Including one from this site.

 

They think smaller spacers between sump and bracket, plus me tightening the sensor more will result in a perfect .6mm gap to the wheel.

I've asked them to send the spacers required as the suggested method of stacking small washers sounded a bit of a faff given limited access.

 

Time will tell......

QED sent the shorter spacers and bolts, so on the dot of 4PM on work form home Friday, I downed keyboard and cracked on.

Shorter spacers, + dremmel action on the holes in the spacer to allow the sensor to fit + a bit of gentle persuasion.

Hopefully that's close enough to get a decent pulse signal.

If things got to plan Sunday, I'll get TDC set and remove the tooth on the wheel.

Then it's just a case of wiring up the Nodiz, well plugging it in, the loom is made.

I don't know if it is different for Nodiz but, in the OMEX200 Installation Guide, the instructions say 0.3–0.5 mm. Both sensors look identical so you would assume that the gap would be too. Wether a couple of tenths of a mm make a difference I don't know.

Great work by the way. I think you will be really pleased with the difference once complete.

To be fair I can't get a consistent read of the wheel, and I'm none to impressed with the QED bracket. I get the impression if and when I drop the sump, it'll be an A*** to get it lined up just so again.

I'm going to have a rethink, and perhaps go with the Webcon kit I was contemplating at the outset.

QED have been helpful up to the point of saying they've sold loads ( nearly 100 ) and this is the first time someone has had an issue, so I sent them, the details of other people I found with the same type of tolerance problems.

I am at the whim of the weather gods though, as I don't have a garage, so it'll probably be a few more weeks before I progress further.

is it actually running, or are you reading a speed while cranking? While it cranks, the speed will jump up and down during compression/ expansion strokes - the important bit is that the ECU can see the teeth and missing tooth.

The ECU loses sync with the trigger wheel, and the sync error count ramps up.

I cut down a spare sensor to get it closer to the trigger wheel and had it running with just the odd sync error. It wasn't quite square on.

So I'm happy with the rest of the setup.

Its not like its over complicated, the concept is pretty basic.

I'd just like fairly expensive plug and play bits to plug and play, so if it needs things doing in the future they aren't too bespoke.

If some cars need shorter spacers to get the bracket lined up, put them in with the bracket, or put the rear sensor mount closer to the front one and I could easily space the sensor.

It'll get there eventually, I was going to look at it last weekend, but the weather was so nice I just drove it instead ;)
