  1. AFAIK the primaries should be 370 cc injectors. I fitted PL2-370 RC Injectors in my SE.
  2. Looks very good. Did you modify/correct the Freescan Baro and MAP calculations? As they are wrong in Freescan.
  3. The bearing and the eccenter are an interference / press fit. if the bearing can "slide" freely on the eccenter something is not correct dimensionwise.
  4. On my 1990 SE (VDO gauges) it was a loose/slipping magnet inside the speedo. Had it repaired a looooooooooooooooooooooong time ago (worked perfectly after) but recently it started to bounce again.
  5. Finally I have time to renew the suspension and brakes on my SE. What are the thoughts on using the 2 aft jacking points as a support using axle stands with rubber pads when taking the rear suspension apart?
  6. Looks similar 3-4665/1 -> 1.5-2.5mm2 - Rick Donkers (
  7. Hi Dave @CHANGES, what are the dimensions of the bolt? Looks like to be a M12 8.8 one.
  8. Some creative bending of a couple of paperclip[s (1 for each brush) will make a nice little hook for keeping the brushes in the retracted position when putting it all together. Upon closing of the housing turn the hooks 90 deg and pull them out. And a pair of extra hands is also Handy.
  9. That must be a record only 8 minutes for fixing. 😃
  10. Hi Bibs, renewed my subscription yesterday and I was back in the green. But today I'm black again?. Can you fix / check it? Used the Manage subscription page and payed by PayPal. Many thanks Freek
  11. AFAIK the error 26 codes in Freescan are correct but the descriptions are wrong.
  12. I have one of these, it has the right connector for use with the shraeder valve on the FPR of a 4 cylinder SE.
  13. I agree with you Travis, things will be fine. I knew you used them that's why I have them. The 0.75 ohms decrease in resistance increases the max current with 0.1 A at 16V, which will still be ok. But in general if one fits injectors with a different resistance one should think about modifying the ballast resistor. That said I still have to do mine. (haven't driven the car much with these injectors and most certainly not with the engine the "sweet spot" when the secondairies come to life. ("nice speed limits in Holland")
  14. I have these as secondary injectors: GM Chevrolet 7.4L J GAS, Direct Replacement OEM INJECTORS Bosch-Remanufactured Part Number: 0280150556: Made in USA, Chevy GMC 7.4 454 (J) They are about 14.5 ohms, so you will still need to modify the ballast resistor
  15. If you are going to use the RC SL4-205 injectors with a lower impedance you have to modify the ballast resistor which is in series with the secondary injectors. This resistor limits the current so the quad driver in de ECU doesn't get fried. The RC ones are about 3.5 ohms less in impedance as the original ones. Because the secondary injectors are parallel connected the total impedance is 1.75 ohms less compared to the original setup. As the original ballast resistor is 3.3 ohms (10 watts AFAIK) it needs to be replaced with a 5 ohm one. Just buy a couple of 4.7 ohm and 5.6 ohm (normal tolerance is 10%) ones and test/measure them and use the closest match. Another solution is to buy 2 10 ohm ones and mount them in parallel. (if there is enough room in the ballast resistor housing).
  16. AFAIK the EBPV and TJ solenois are controlled by a relay which in turn is controlled by the ECU. Only if the EBPV/TJ changeover relay is removed (or broken coil inside the relay) will it throw a code 26 error. At least this is how it is on my SE
  17. The Resitor is there in order to Limit the max. current so the Quad driver inside the ECU doesn't get fried.
  18. Went to a business meeting. made me smile. (and also lots of other people).
  19. Don't fotget to do the aircon hoses when converting to R134a and the expansionvalve.
  20. The split spacer is there in order to avoid that the two lugs of the hub carrier are not pulled toghether when tightening the lower link stud.
