After a muck up with the paint order, I finally got the last panels painted today. It’s a 5 yard paint job with some imperfections on every panel (including a bl@@dy horse fly landing on the horizontal surface of the drivers door while I was putting the lacquer on!) - but it was very cheap and is all one colour.

No pics until Sam has seen it :D

After a few days sorting niggles with the motorhome after Le Mans, I got back to Grawpy this week.

After getting the loom laid out and plumbed in, I had a fault with the fuel injectors - number 3 opened as soon as you turned the key, and it stayed open during cranking (the other 3 didn’t pass fuel). After lots of head scratching, stripping the inlet manifold down, cleaning and checking each FI, trying another ECU (the 1.4 EFi is quite rare but there’s still half a dozen or more ECUs listed!) and checking every single connection for continuity, I was stumped.

Luckily, Mr Howard is much better with lektrikery than me - and had access to decent internet at work :D

Turns out that the last of the CVH engines (the PTE version) were sequential injection, not simply batch fired like earlier versions of EFi. So after a lot of googling, taking the covers off the ECU and tracing each FI pin to the relevant transistor, the 4 pins for the fuel injectors were swapped into different positions and presto, it coughed into life :D

Ignition light and oil pressure light work, Rev counter works, temp gauge works (the cooling system needed a lot of burping but eventually it stabilised at halfway, with the fan cycling in and out), fuel gauge works and I calibrated the sender while I had the tank out. So just the low coolant light to fix and then check all of the external lights once the bumpers are back on.

Lots more wiring today. Sketched out wiring for coil pack and a relay that feeds the lambda heater, the fuel injectors, the idle control valve and the airflow meter. Originally the speed sensor and charcoal canister purge would have been on this circuit but I’m not using them. The fuel pump relay would also have been fed from the first relay but as the battery is in the boot, I decided to feed it independently rather than run another live wire to the back.

Almost finished the electrics today - chased a fault with the headlamp motors that turned out to be a trapped wire shorting under the near side horn, now have functioning side, dip and main.

Chased a fault with the headlamp flash and aux lights that turned out to be a corroded contact on the stalk.now have headlamp or aux flash and aux with main beam.

Fixed a loose connection on RH front indicator, now have hazards, indicators, side repeaters and dash indicator.

Fitted a lights on warning buzzer and had to clean up the interior light door switches.

At some point in proceedings, I noticed that the side/headlight switch was getting warm, so I relayed the feed under the fuse box.

Chased a fault with the handbrake warning light to the switch on the handbrake (not connected!) connected, cleaned and working.

Started fitting electric mirrors (this was a poverty spec model with only one manually adjusted drivers door mirror) when I realised that the reinforcing plate in the drivers door (that I had bonded in place when the door was off) hadn’t been drilled for the loom to enter between the hinges!

So - jobs left are:

Wire in timer relay etc for heated screen
Fit passenger door e/m
Modify speedo cable to fit dash
Fit speedo cable at gearbox end
Fit full complement of wheel nuts
Fit nose cone, headlight panel and bonnet
Fit soft top
Fit dash
Fit door cards and furniture
Fit dash section that is at the flockers (cover piece to hide the gap between a Sabre instrument shroud and an SS1 dash with a Fiesta instrument console)
MOT
