Installed on Version 2 board

Post by Ken555 »

Received my beta test unit from Brent yesterday.

As I'm using a version 2 board, I thought I would show my installation method.

I've gone for the hard wired approach, just incase the screw connectors came loose later.

board with screw connectors removed and replaced with wires.

To make the connection at the megajolt end, I cut the pin that was used as rev cut out and reconnected the rev limiter trigger to the pcb, the pin now can be used as power out to the coil. this will mean a quick re-make of the wiring loom but shouldn't be too bad to do, once the rain/snow stops.

As the box I'm using is non-standard part, I fixed the rev limiter to an offcut of a plastic card, and slipped it into the spare slots inside the case.

Well the rain stopped long enough to allow me to retrieve the loom inside.
Once unwrapped I added a new wire to feed the coil pack, from the rev limiter, rather than the 12V supply line.
A few minutes later it was re-wrapped and ready to refit.

Excellent work!

Did you have a chance to road test it yet? Test carefully and gradually. :)
