Post 1964 Ford Taunus 12M 1500cc V4 
Hello everyone!

First a quick introduction of myself!

My name is Glenn, I live in Belgium and I'm 22 years old.
The car that I am going to Jolt is a Ford Taunus 12M from '64.

Here are some picture's!








The bodywork off the car is still in his original state, even the first paint!
The underside is completely redone, new brakes and brake lines, new shocks, al bushes, etc...

The car started as a 1200cc low compression engine with 45 HP, I have now build a new 1500cc high compression engine with a 28/36 DCD Weber carburetor and electronic ignition, estimated power is around 75 HP but now I wanted to test out the Megajolt for some more horses!

I'm now going to show some picture off the install

I mocking up on the old engine outside the car Wink


At first I've made a special bolt and spacer to attach the trigger wheel to the pulley





And when placed!



Then I started on a bracket for the VR-sensor







And the final result with the gap between the trigger wheel and sensor, I'm pleased with the result!

Good to see more Ford V4's are being Megajolted Smile . Great spacer you made. Did you use two different bolts that are screwed into the spacer with their respective threads? I had something like that in mind, but as I am lacking a good workshop and can't weld I took a M10x1 bolt, ground down the head and threaded it.

Hey Alex!

already hoped that you would react to the thread! maybe we could help each other out! Wink

I've made it from 2 different sized bolts, grounded down the heads to the same size and then made a spacer to that size. drilled in some holes to the side of the spacer and welded al together trough the holes, also added the shim and welded this on.

have you a custom map made already? or still driving the standard one?

Hi Glenn,

Map is in the Library section under Saab Sonett III (not too far down). It works fine, but needs some tweaking at low revs with low load. I noticed that when the engine is warm idle won't drop to 800 rpm, it keeps hunting at ca 1000. Looks like advance is a bit too much there (found this out last summer. The engine was warm and wouldn't slow down. After I stopped it and started after a minute or so it idled at lower revs). The colum at 600rpm might be overdone. I think I will skip the 600rpm column and add one at 1000rpm in order to lessen advance at low load.

At low revs and light load the engine had a bit of a flat spot where it had a hickup when the throttle was opened. I got this pretty much cured by advancing ignition through the load range, so that is why advance is bigger with a bit more load than with throttle at idle; may sound a bit complicated but you'll see what I mean when you open the map.

A little progress today!

made up a bracket for the coil pack, it also houses a multi connector.
I'm going to use this for connecting the engine harness (EDIS, vr-sensor, coilpack, etc...) to the car harness into the megajolt. this way I can remove the engine and just need to pull the multi connector out and the rest stays with the engine Wink

some pics







and painted al the bracket's Very Happy

Again some progress! Very Happy

Today the Taunus fired up with the EDIS module in limp mode!
First impression, much more stable when idling! almost no vibrations!

Can't wait to hook the Megajolt up!! Very Happy

And a quick vid!

He's a runner!! Very Happy

Yesterday finished the wiring with fuses and relays



Then installed the hard rev limiter





Then plugged in the Megajolt...
And he fired up instantly!! Very Happy I have uploaded the ignition file from AlexB and am very pleased with it!
still some room for improvement on my engine but already a big improvement over a stock dizzy!

I notice more torque in the low and mid range, better throttle response, and much less vibrations in the engine!

I'm convinced!! Very Happy





And a quick drive around Wink
