  1. Have you checked the injectors are getting voltage?
  2. Not when you are comparing the value to that in Espritmon.
  3. The wastegate solenoid is not used just for overboost, see this thread Freescan incorrectly reports the MAP value too high.
  4. Error codes 26 and 33 should not affect the primary injector firing. Have you checked the injectors are getting voltage?
  5. Glad to hear it was only a warning, if you can be glad about such a thing. Take the hint and try to take things a little easier.
  6. Pin 2 is the common +V feed on the OE coil pack. Have you measured the resistances of the different coils to see if they are similar? It is hard to read but is the OE coil pack part number a Bosch 0 221 503 001? If so, that's a common coil pack fitted to several vehicles, e.g. the Vauxhall Omega.
  7. Hopefully they have addressed the issues with a vent hole being on the upper side of the starter motor, see the 'Final Note' here:
  8. The two MOSFETS I have noted as suitable replacements are the Siemens BUZ 10 S2 (preferable) and the Fairchild FQP20N06L but the Siemens doesn't seem to be readily available any more. The Fairchild can be bought from RS Components, Farnell, Mouser etc.
  9. As said before, the threshold gap is down to fire doorset manufacturer to specify and unsurprisingly this varies according to the manufacturer. e.g Forza Doors specify 6 mm, Leaderflush Shapland specify 10 mm for fire doors of less than 90 minutes and 5 mm for 90 and 120 minute fire rated doorsets. Incidentally the 2008 edition of BS 8214 recommended a maximum 6 mm gap before it was superseded by the 2016 edition.
  10. ECU failures are uncommon. Loss of both primary injector circuits is pretty rare but if the primary injector impedances are about 4 ohms then that is too high and will cause a problem.
  11. Fire doors should not have a 10 mm gap; are you thinking of Part F of the Building Regulations Approved Documents for ventilation? BS 8214 (Timber-based fire door assemblies – Code of Practice) defers to the fire doorset manufacturer for the threshold gap size but if the door requires smoke seals then it recommends that the threshold gap should be preferably fitted with a threshold seal giving a leakage rate not exceeding 3 m3/h per metre at a pressure 25 Pa or, if that is not possible, a gap of less than 3mm in height. BS 9999 (Code of practice for fire safety in the design, management and use of buildings) has the same requirements for smoke seals.
  12. Someone might be willing to use the Renault spline on their clutch so it could be trying there anyway.
  13. If you have not already done so it may be worth posting this on the GT40s forum.
  14. Quote: 'While this meta-analysis concludes that lockdowns have had little to no public health effects, they have imposed enormous economic and social costs where they have been adopted. In consequence, lockdown policies are ill-founded and should be rejected as a pandemic policy instrument.' After I read those two sentences I did not bother with the rest of it. Whilst a lockdown may only have a slight effect on the Covid-19 mortality rate (and I am dubious about that claim) the purpose of a lockdown is to reduce the spread on infection. This thereby lessens the chances of the health care system being overwhelmed which, in turn, reduces the Covid-19 mortality rate. The lockdown also allowed time for the vaccines to be developed.
  15. The missing 800,000 odd positive results have bumped up the average.
  16. Pins 30 and 87A on the fuel pump & injector relay (relay 'D' in the relay box on the RHR wheel arch)
  17. Thanks Filip but thanks to be Pete I'm sorted now 😀
  18. Thanks Ian, 🙁 Pete, yes, I am just after some measurements so that would be great thanks.
  19. Yep, you are right. Excel decided to add about 14 days instead of 7 days when cut and pasting the formula for that day, it should have been about 6.xx %.
  20. Do you know what resistance the Daewoo sensors are? The OE sensors are about 1100 ohms.
  21. Unfortunately the positivity rate is climbing again after previously peaking around the New Year. Time will tell whether it's a blip or a trend. I added the 7 day average column because of the erratic reporting over the holiday period.
  22. Thanks Ian, unfortunately the timing of wanting a part and it being available rarely coincide.
  23. Does any one have an old oil pump annulus and rotor that's of no use any more? It does not need to be serviceable. Beer money and postage are waiting for it 🙂 Thanks.
  24. You say you have 3.6 bar of fuel pressure but under what engine conditions? If at idle or engine off this is too high.
