Most front scratters

most front scratters don't have the timing wheel on the front pulley, but instead the marks are in the flywheel and the sensor is mounted through the engine block. If you are lucky, you might stumble across a Sierra 1.8 CVH... this has the timing wheel on the front pulley and it can be prised off wi...

A steel pulley will not

A steel pulley will not cause you any problems at all. I'm using a standard Ford Pinto bottom pulley and a Sierra CVH trigger wheel <a href="http://photobucket.com/" target="_blank"><img src="http://i105.photobucket.com/albums/m227/capri_turbo/MJLJ/mjlj7324.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video a...

Programmer (Paul f)

I don't suppose you could e mail me a scematic? I have a development kit, but it doesn't seem to be able to program a new chip... it has the 8 pin version on board.

Programming completely blank micro

Help... a mate of mine has a V2 board that is nearly completed... he's taking his time lol, but he's somehow managed to loose his programmed MC. I have a brand new one here, but it's completely blank. Is there a way I can program it from scratch? I take it i'd need to build some sort of simple progr...

Farnell online UK

you can get everything you need from them, except of course for the PCB, enclosure and programmed chip. When I got mine around March 06, anyone could purchase from Farnell's website... minimum order was £20 and next day postage was free. They have the MAP sensors in stock now (2339857 at £11.626 e...

Sound great Brent

I have 1 question regarding uploading 2 maps as I really want to do this. Does the current tuning software support 2 maps? I'm guessing it must do. I'm probably being a bit dense here, but I'm guessing that to upload the second map to the MJLJ you would do so with the aux switch "switched on" while ...

Brent... possible magzine article

Hi Brent Following the successful install of my V3 MJLJ unit to my Capri, I am thinking of writing an article on fitting the MJLJ to the Capri for Capri Club International's monthly magazine which is circulated ONLY to CCI members. I thought it best to ask your permission before proceeding. Hopefull...

Timing lights

I use a Sealy TL93 digital timing light with advance dial... it reads spot on for advance with the wasted spark system, but as expected it reports RPM as twice the real RPM. My brother has a Snap On one... if I get time, I'll try and compare readings from both and get back to you.

Now running reliably

After a few inital problems with the EDIS connector not making a good contact, the Capri is now up and running on the MJLJ unit and what a difference it has made compared with the distributor... <a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://i105.photobucket.com/albums/m227/capri_...

It's locking together fine

it is the pins that are loose in the sockets when the thing is together... going to have a fiddle with it later... cleaning and trying to tighten up the pins a bit.

Capri 2.1 Pinto Running (updated pictures)

Well... I finally got it fitted and running today. Was a lot easier than I thought it would be too. I have 1 problem though which is quite major... the contact between the EDIS4 and it's multiplug is very poor and the car keeps cutting out and won't restart as a result. Breaking the connection and r...

So this info may be of some use afterall

I'll do some photographs of the unit, but unfortunately it is now dimantled, but I can easily reassemble it (sort of) to explain how to get the unit out intact. I'll get onto it this week. the idea of being able to configure the map sensor in the firmware sounds good. If only we had a good supplier ...

It won't work properly unless as you say

the tables in the firmware are altered. I don't actually need to use it anyway, as I have the MPX4250AP fitted already to my MJLJ, I was merely trying it out to see if there was a cheap way of obtaining this part for future reference. As I got the part for nothing, I havn't lost anything, but have g...
