SG/16/A 14748 Is your engine number
SCD210271GB000745 is your VIN.

If exported in 1986 then it must have been weeks or months old?

In addition, that registration number belongs to a Lotus, last seen in 2004.

If your voltmeter and tacho work, it’s not an earth issue.

Fuel tank sender voltage

There are always solutions available. When faced with a similar issue (LPG sender to Scimitar Smiths gauge) I put it through an Arduino device I built to invert and calibrate it, also to add low fuel indications etc. I believe that a more crude conversion module is available commercially, but 8 tim...

Fuel tank sender voltage

VDO and Smiths do indeed work backwards to each other - found this out when converting to use a Focus fuel tank, so converted the whole lot to VDO

Swap your SS1 engine mounts and flywheel over to the new engine. Fit a spigot bearing (same as almost every other Ford RWD engine, except the Essex V6). Possibly thermostat housing? Only confusion might come from which “flavour” the original and replacement are - pre or post lean burn as the water p...

Fuel tank sender voltage

Are you measuring the voltage at the terminal with the sender connected or not? The original system supplies an on/off voltage which approximates to an average of 10V. This goes to the gauge. From the gauge, it goes to the sender unit. Both resistances in series create a pit entail (or voltage) divi...

Most people seem to re-pin them - drill out to 8mm and use a cap head bolt of suitable length so the plain shank is the bearing surface rather than any of the thread (then chop off the excess threaded bit). Cap (Allen) head screws are generally used mainly because they tend to be a harder material (...

This one - it’s a theory, not proven: https://www.feoa.net/threads/chinese-made-1-6l-cvh-with-a-twist.61626/ There’s a 2.0 CVH in the US (used in the Focus until the turn of the century or thereabouts) as well but if you’re after something to simply drop in to an SS1, then it’s another U.K. CVH.
