sorry, not got round to doing this yet. The pulley is a lot larger than my other capri running a Pinto... so not sure how i'm going to do it yet.

nice idea... but if you use the "tach out" on the MJLJ, the tell tale that the unit isn't working is that the rev counter simply stops working... if engine still running then it's in limp home mode on the EDIS.

Nice Manta

My brother is running an XE in his Berlinetta Coupe, but he's on the standard Calibra ignition and Motronic injection.

trigger wheel is concentric... VR sensor brackets are aluminium. The thing is, when I first set all this up it was rock steady 10 degrees. I'll make up new brackets in the next few weeks from some stainless steel shet I have here. I should be able to fold the edges to give more rigidity.

The leads are resistive, would having resistive plugs not be too much? The PIP and SAW lines are shielded and the EDIS is 2 feet away from the plugs. I will certainly get some plugs and try it though.

using NGK AP7FS plugs in a 2.1 Pinto engine. Running Motorcraft 8mm silicone leads. Trigger wheel is bolted to the front crank pulley which is a solid cast steel item so no chance of any movement there as it's located to the crank by a woodruff key. http://i105.photobucket.com/albums/m227/capri_turb...

There is definately no problem with the Megajolt unit as it was disconnected and running ONLY on the EDIS. I have used 2 different EDIS4 units and got the same 9 degree jump... always 9 degrees... measured at idle and 3000 rpm... 9 degrees every time. With MJLJ connected I still get the 9 degree jum...

Jumping timing

I've had the MJLJ running for over 2 years now with no issues, but recently the engine has become harsh... Just checked the timing with the Jolt unplugged and I find the timing is jumping 9 degrees... not drifting around, but a jump and the same 9 degree jump at any revs. Most of the time it's at 19...

Nice to see another Capri running MJLJ. Nice to see the original info from my own Capri install is coming in useful to others. Mines been on for nearly 3 years now and not had one single failure or even a hiccup. Brilliant system, well suited to the Pinto. Going to MJLJ my 2.8i Turbo next... that sh...

The MJLJ will work with Capri tachos but ONLY 85 on... you need the one with adjustment potentiometer on the back. I think I've covered this issue on the Laser page for Nat a while back, but it could have been on CapriPower... same issues with 24V conversions... definately covered it on CP for this ...

the temperature input can be added to the V3 quite easily. I have it on both of mine although I havn't used it on either yet.

Have a read through this whole thread for info

Brent,

Is there a pin for pin SMT (SOIC) device that I could use with a DIP adaptor board?

Is this the one?
