    Setting the throttle potentiometer - help

    The throt pot has no adjustment like the modern ones. Mine did have another hole drilled by previous owners so I’ve tried just bolting with one bolt for now and that’s worked to get it started. Now I’m struggling to get it running right though. The balance is spot on according to synchrometer but it’s backfiring and spitting flames out of the inlets. I’m going to just buy a new TP and try that I think. Hopefully that will allow proper torment to eliminate any movement and will allow adjustment to meet ecu parameters.

    Setting the throttle potentiometer - help

    Hi Chris it’s a DTA E48 ecu.....rather old.
  8. Just changed my inlets and so I had to take off the throttle pot and put it on the new ones. I’ve gone to set the throttle stops on the ecu and when closed it’s 25 which is fine but fully open is reading 199 and the software says it had to be greater than 200. The throttles are fully open as the lever is hitting the stop on the throttle body. There was a tick box which changed recording the throttle open to pedal fully depressed or not. That seemed to be accepted by the software. Does anyone know if that will be acceptable or if I will have an issue? Or how to get it to read more than 200? I can’t try starting to check until next weekend as we have a bundle of joy and I get back at night too late to start it up.

    WSCC Blyton 2018 Trackday and Booking Info - 13th July 2018

    Ah right thanks Dave. That’s exactly what I was doing wrong. I’ll try again!

    WSCC Blyton 2018 Trackday and Booking Info - 13th July 2018

    Had a great time. Can’t wait for the next one. I’ve got a long way to go to learn how to drive both the car and the track but I’ll get there. I’ve got a short clip from my second session to upload but I get an error message to do with file type. How do I know what file type mine is and how would I change it on an iPhone or Mac?

    WSCC Blyton 2018 Trackday and Booking Info - 13th July 2018

    My first experience of a WSCC day out and what a fabulous day it was. Had a few teething issues but everyone was amazingly helpful and every issue was fixed to allow more time on track or even to limp home safely and the end of the day courtesy of a clothes peg . Met some great people and overall I was very impressed with the organisation of the event. Well done and big thank you to all and I’m looking forward to the next one!

    Oil cooler sizing

    Good point made here. I’ve already got the 19 row cooler now though so I’ll see how that fares. Hoping to install prior to Blyton next week.

    It’s a 92 with no ducting. Radtec radiator.

    Oil cooler sizing

    I thought hard about laminova v air/oil cooler and I’ve decided to go for an air to oil one. As my engine is similar spec to barneys I’ve gone for a 19 row item as well. I already have an oil temp gauge and that’s plumbed into the remote filter housing just before the input into the engine so should be okay. The pressure gauge is plumbed into the main gallery on the block but mounted remotely. I veered away from laminova because water temp already sees 86 on road (91 when pushing it a bit) so I thought pushing it on track plus extra load from cooling the oil may push temps up too much and cause another issue rather than sorting the existing oil one. Ive ordered a Setrab unit purely because the fittings interchangeable so I’m flexible as to where it gets plumbed into the system (-10 feed to engine and -12 from engine to tank). The mocal ones are brazed in place so can’t simply change the fittings around. Ill try and fit it next week in time for Blyton as I won’t get chance this weekend. Anyone got pics of a similar install so I can get ideas for mounting etc?
