    Modified distributor and advance curve

    I’d do the engine mods and fit a new ECU, along with a wasted spark coil pack, rather than fit any 16V. Whilst the top end power won’t be a strong, it will be more than adequate, easy to tune and stay in tune. Money spent on the dizzy would be better spent on a new ecu.

    Clutch actuator bush question

    Quick update on this subject. I really appreciate the advise that you have all given me and can report that I have now successfully got out the remaining part of the reverse light switch. I ended up trying the path of least resistance suggested by Ozzyman. So I cleaned up both ends of the selector rods using emery cloth and oil, once the metal was clean and rust free, I greased it all up and pushed the selector rod back into place. It now moves freely, so job done .

    Modified distributor and advance curve

    Thanks Tom. My original post was misleading. I'm aware of the specifics of the regulation, but I'd ruled out the mappable ignition for the reason (cost) that you point out. What are my options in terms of 16v engines, as I already have a BE3 box that I would want to retain. I had the rebuild of the 1.9 8 valve in mind for the low revs torque. I want to keep the cost low, as I think that it is more in keeping with the spirit of targa rallying.

    Thanks Peter. I also have a a donor 1.6 engine, so I've got the pistons, just need to fit them to the 1.9 rods and get a good set of rings. I've also already got the cam and vernier, as they also came with the old1.6 engine.

    Re read the regs, you don’t need to keep the standard injection, what you do need to keep is the inlet manifold and the throttle body. More compression, more cam, and a mappable ecu to give 3D ignition and fuel control and that would make a decent package retaining the throttle body and inlet. Alternatively one of the 16v engines transplanted in will probably give more power at less cost.

    Hi and welcome. The 270 Piper is not significantly different to the standard D6B cam, so you may wish to shop around a bit, especially if you’re considering an increase in CR. This is where you’ll reap the most increase in power. Changing the pistons is one option. Easier options are a thinner head gasket or skimming the head. You can skim up to 2mm, but obviously you’d need to determine if it’s been done before. Remapping the dizzy is worthwhile. Sorry, can’t help as I’m in Oz. Perhaps H&H?
  9. I joined the forum today and I have a question that I hope someone can help with. I have a 205 rally car and compete in Targa rallies. The regulations for targa rallying dictate that I have to keep the standard fuel injection. I intend rebuilding a 1.9 8 valve engine over the winter and I'm planning some minor upgrades. Essentially, it will be a "fast road" specification and will include a mildly modified cylinder head, with 3 angle valve seats and a Piper 270 degree duration camshaft and vernier pulley. I may also use 1.6 pistons to achieve a higher compression ratio. I am conscious that the advance/retard requirements of the engine will need to be changed and in the interests of reliability, the distributor could also benefit from a rebuild. What are my options and who is the best person/company to talk to?

    Rcl receiver scorpion sa30 immobiliser

    That's relief I did think that after it worked without the factory one plugged in that would be the case, its working again now the problem was I had unlocked the car to put some stuff in the boot but because I didn't put the key in the ignition after it relocked it self then set the alarm off but it wouldn't disarm again and none of the buttons were working. I do have a fault where sometimes I unlock the car on the fob but it locks again straight away but doesnt arm the car again, I think it's something to do with the modual in the drivers door as when I pull the pin up to unlock it it doesn't always actually unlock the catch

    Rcl receiver scorpion sa30 immobiliser

    The aftermarket system is probably connected to the central locking control box under the steering column, the receiver box is redundant if you have an aftermarket remote. If the remote is setting/un-setting the alarm but no longer locking/un-locking the doors I'd start by checking the fuses.
  13. Got a bit of an emergency as I need to use my car tonight and it will be parked away from home, I have a scorpion immobiliser fitted and the fob wouldn't lock or unlock the car but the red light was lighting up on the fob so I looked at the reciever next to the interior light and there was signs of corrosion so I unplugged the loom but one of the pins has broken off the reciever. There's only 4 pins in the plug but there's 8 pins on the reciever would I be able to move a pin from the plug so it goes into a different pin on the reciever? I have tried the fob and it does unlock and lock the car I'm just concerned that it may cause problems, I was just testing the fob using the phone camera trick and I heard the car siren go off outside signalling the car was now locked and armed so I guess the scorpion system has been wired in bypassing the original reciever?

    Words must be spoken from a true non smoker. My car doesn't have an ashtray either, it has a locking wheel nut key compartment, with a lighter next to it

    Appreciate the additional info, I’ll post how I get on once I have completed the job. Fingers crossed.

    Cigarette lighter compartment wont close

    there are some tracks on the sides that keeps it shut, If i don't forget i can make you photos by tomorrow
  26. Hi as title suggests, this wont close. The door part doesnt have a clip but the looks like there should be a catch. Anyone got a close up of the catch on theirs? thanks!

    Radiator thermoswitch...

    Great thanks... useful to have, if they'd still been wired up but not essential either by the sound of it. Cheers.

    Anyone on here own this 1.9?

    What the!?!?

    205 corsa c epas column

    Corsa B is a slightly easier option but I went with corsa C as they are more readily available and about £100+ cheaper!!
