Fuel Injection / Re: Specialist Components 45 mm Throttle Body
« Last post by 94touring on Today at 12:59:35 PM »
Being able to select multiple cells and increase in 3-5% increments is an easy way to do it. Then I drove around in tracer mode and tweaked individual cells that were outside a target range.  My cold start maps on my rotary are relatively rich under load till my water temps get up to 180f, then things act normally.  With all the factory idle sensors and extra crap off the engine it took a bit more idle tuning initially.  With a leaner section above idle and as the car warmed up driving, it wasn't unusual for me to suddenly idle near 2k rpms. I could blip the throttle and get it to drop back to 1k rpms. Once I brought the fuel richer in those 2k rpm cells it would get stuck in and found a fuel ratio at 1k rpms the engines porting was happy with, the rise went away.

Supposedly there is a way to update multiple cells in one action. It looks like it is lean at many stations. Plus it was even more lean this morning after it finally warmed up.
I did get rid of the air in the cooling system finally as the heater was only warm yesterday.

I plan to sort out the gauge issue and then get back to looking for inlet leaks. At least it runs with the new TB.

Lambda 1.0 is 14.7 afr, which is a tad lean at idle, at least on any of my cars. I idle closer to 12:5 or lambda 0.85.  Might help settle your idle down, which may be hunting for fuel at idle causing the fluctuation you're seeing.

Idles OK:


But after a drive around the block the idle jumped to 1250, more trouble shooting...
And the electronic gauges acted up when I switched on the heater fan...more fun

Back to basic setup. I fixed the wideband issue. All the wiring checked out so I installed a new sensor. That part is working now.

I am having trouble getting the idle to calm down. I also added a PCV valve which is probably contributing to the problem. It is a valve Moss sells for Mikuni carbs as they have no provision for breathers like an HIF carb. SC has the breather venting into the air cleaner, but with just the foam air cleaner we got a fume smell in the cabin and I though that was a possible source. The cover plate should help and I would like to keep the PCV valve.

Thanks, pretty sure I ordered them from spares already so they are somewhere.  Lol.

You talking about those rubbers? good luck!

I get them from Victoria British here in town, they are their part number 0-010 $2.25 ea They also show a kit with rubbers, washers, studs and nuts for $7 ea but they don't have them and can't say when they ever will, so don't bother with that. The nuts are 10-32 and I bought small fender washers for the inside.

Mini Spares has those complete kits for 2.50 ea - you need three of course - if you're going to order parts from them anyway. Their part number is 17H5431

Last thing I did tonight was put these three rubbers in - they're to mount the windshield motor to the bulkhead and boy howdy are they one bitch kitty to get in place! They're just as thick on the other side of the bulkhead and stiff as can be, and the wiper motor has three long studs that pass thru these.

I put them in a glass of water in the microwave for a minute to try and soften them up - it didn't really help but I got them in the end.

Oh and the tanks are back too....

I think that colour was called Java green.
