  1. An older laptop with a decent small microphone and
  2. This is not correct. Spec is between 100 - 110 Hz Engine at 30° BTDC with the colourd timing dots pointed to each other, they will not be in line. This is for the engine with a HTD (rouded tooth profile) belts. Cambelt Frequentie Lotus info.pdf
  3. Spec is between 110 - 120 Hz not MHz also the crank position is different when using frequency method.
  4. Maybe some usefull info for you in my (old) ac renewal project. (Pics are missing).
  5. Many thanks Keith, I must have done something wrong. However the pics are missing, so if that can be fixed that would be great.
  6. I’m struggling to find a topic with the name AC renewal. It is about an AC renewal / conversion of my 1990 SE. See the link below but it comes up short. ac - renewal Nothing came up with the search function. I hope someone can bring it back / revive.
  7. Disconnect the hoses from the sandwich plate and fill the coolers/hoses from from that end. Keep the open ends as high as possible.
  8. Picture? (Says more than 1000 words) 😉
  9. Colormatching should be possible but I like to get them in the original color. I have no clue as how much (if any) the 32 year old silver/grey paint has detoriated from the original color.
  10. According the EMH Manual the resistance of the MAT sensor at 20 degC is around 3400 Ohm. So your measured value sounds right. Be aware that the sensor resistance is not lineair with the temperature.
  11. Does anybody know the paint code (color) for the OZ rims used on a 1990 SE? Searching on the forum revealed that the question has been asked before but I could not find an answer. I hope that somebody knows the answer.
  12. The resistance values for the various MAT sensor temperatures is also given in the EMH manual.
  13. NO Heat There is a spring loaded pin, You need to press (there is a small hole on one side) it, after which the steel part can slide of the aluminium part. Attached a manual for overhauling the bendix rear brakes. Bendix Overhaul ex Matra club.pdf
  14. @mike_sekinger as promised, took the wheel off, hope you have enough info with the below pictures. As you can see there is a difference in the sensor, my sensor connector is centered whereas "Tom's" sensor seems to be offset. Looks like my sensor is centered in the teardrop footprint. The outside of the connector securing clip (yelow line) is in line with the inside of the web. The bottom of the securing clip sits 15 mm above the machined Hub Carrier VSS flat.
  15. Looks like my vss is different. At the moment I’m away so maybe Sunday evening late or Monday.
  16. The owner doesn't know where his/her car is?????? 😵 Stolen??????
  17. Thx Ian, it is not in Service Notes for the SE but I found it in the S4 manual. (forgot about that).
  18. Anybody know the toe angle change per mm shim alteration? I want to take out the guess work as much as possible. According my calculations 1 mm shim alteration equals about 0.1 deg toe angle change.
  19. The primary injectors are Peak and Hold injectors ie a larger current is used for opening and after reaching the opening current the ECU (which measures the injectorpai current) throttles the current back. As the injectors are paired (1&4 and 2&3) the current through an injector pair is evenly distibuted between the 2 injectors if they are of equal resistance. If not then one injector gets more current then the other causing different opening times or not (fully) opening of an injector.
  20. It does not happen in my esprit (mechanical ODO) It is more like a suggestion. The picture above and the posting that when it works it displays the right numbers and my experience with similar failures on LCD displays make a strong case with failing contacts. The LCD displays in general are connected to the PCB by solder contacts or by means of rubber conductive strips which are clamped between the display and the PCB. Fixing the bad solderjoints is not so difficult. If the display uses the "strips" one has to remove in general a (brittle) plastic holder and then the contact points on the pcb can be cleaned with IPA. Another problem that can occur is that the plastic holder for the display is a little bit out of shape and does not apply evenly distibuted pressure / force along the row(s) of contacts. In both cases you have to open the speedo
  21. Bad contacts of the LCD inside the speedo.
