  1. Thanks Derek, yes that’s what I fitted the cover on mine is blue as seen in the last picture
  2. Actually I’m getting a little confused you mention EPROM and MEMCAL. I thought they were one of the same if not can you explain what each is please? I put the chip if you like from my old ECU in to the new ECU Thanks
  3. Hi Erik I put my eprom in from my SE Thanks
  4. Evening all, I recently had a problem with my ECU that was creating an error code but there was no error, anyway I had that repaired and all is well. While the unit was away for repair I thought about sourcing a spare replacement model number 1228708 for the future as these are getting rare. So I took the plunge and purchased one from the states. The unit arrived in a timely manner and as I hadn’t received mine back installed the spare unit. On first start up after resetting the IAC the car ran fine all be it the idle was a little high then after about a minute the car stalled. Thinking that this might be an ECU learning symptom I took the car for a drive, it continued to stall for the next minute or every time I stopped, however once the car was warm the car ran fine, in fact I would say better then with my original ECU. Feeling pleased after the drive I left the car until the next morning just to check on the stalling symptom, sure enough car fired up perfectly but stalled after 30 seconds or so. Just for clarity I have checked the parameters on freescan an all looks to be fine in my very limited knowledge and I did a relearn starting the car with AC on etc. Does anyone know why this symptom is happening’ again only when the car is cold after 30 seconds or So the car stalls Cheers Paul
  5. Hi all, Cn anyone give me an indication as to where the oil temp sender is on my 1990 SE? Thanks Paul
  6. Thanks for the input Dave, I will have a go with it. Paul
  7. The one I am looking at is in a frame, I am happy the rad will fit but not sure about the frame
  8. Morning Barry, The issue is the frame width, the SE parts manual lists 3 radiators, one of which is the same as the V8. The SJ one has the same part number across the range for their alloy rad. Paul
  9. Morning all, A quick question, will a V8 radiator fit in my SE? Thanks Paul
  10. Afternoon guys, Still working on it, but making progress!!!! Although I have been at this point before so I am going to see how it goes over the next week or two but fingers crossed, however I can say its not vacum related. I will let you all know in the next week or so. Cheers
  11. I don't have them Barry, well I don't think I do what are you referring too?
  12. Evening all, so here's the latest, took the car for a drive tonight, well it wasn't really a drive it was almost undrivable the car was stalking the moment the car was out of gear and it's running was terrible a bit like running on two but it wasn't I am now thinking either electrics or fuel (pump / filter) any thoughts? Paul
  13. No CEL codes or EML light I don't think I have the EML section in my manual I will take a look
  14. To be honest Barry don't know where else to look
