Maybe a silly question but did you have the ignition switched on when you plugged into the laptop 

Tried both

You need the ignition on for the ecu to connect to a computer for future reference

ECU working. Phoned Westfield and they guided me through the problem I was having. Two black cables I hadn't earthed ... for the ecu. Fuel pump working, but I have a leak where the fuel pipe connects to the throttle bodies. The bottom one is the feed ?image.thumb.jpg.d5b0ffad465e1a6342c9438e062b0f46.jpg

Just to confirm the bottom line is for the fuel intake and the top is the return? Just can't seem to tighten up enough to stop the fuel leaking out at pressure!

And SHE's started. :yes::angel-emoticon::d:p

 

A couple of turns of the ingnition and a splutter. Left her a couple of seconds and she roared into life. Even the neighbours came out to have a look.

 

thanks all for the help

Tidy up those cables by the ECU and fuel tank.

Guidance please. 

As I had bypassed to heater to start the engine I noticed that I had a air bubble in the water. It's settled now but concerned that when I attach the heater the connections will be to high compared to the water tank.

 Should I take the plunge and raise the water tank or lower pipes for the heater? Don't tuning I have much room to raise the tank and whilst the heater can't be lowered the pipes can but the heater would still be above the tank.!

image shows the pipes for the heater coming out of the skuttle

Checked all electrics ... brake lights, head lights, horn, fog lights, water pump for jets, windscreen wiper motor. 

 

Fuel indicates a full tank but I've only put 5 litres in ..
