Help, Engine Will Not StartHi, Getting very frustrated, looking for fresh ideas before I blow a gasket.....sell the bloody car....or set it on fire! I have fitted a ST170 engine using Megajolt with original Ford Edis and coil pack. Everything was working, test drive down street was OK but the Dellorto twin 40's could not give enough fuel/air at idling and acceleration (jetted for 1.6). After speaking to webcon and pricing up parts I decided to order Twin 45 webers with 5 progression holes (specific for Zetec), fitted them and everything was running OK on test drive. Waiting for rolling road session, however after a trip to A&E with chest pains and a minor operation I had not touched the car. Returned back to car after 6 weeks the car will not start. I am getting fuel and spark, I have also tried another coil and changed spark plugs. Switching at coil OK with test light primary coil readings 1.3 ohms and Secondary coil readings 10.38, I believe within parameter. I have not touched any wiring, although next job is to make it tidy with cable covering. I do occasionally get back fire through exhaust and popping back through carbs, feels like timing, maybe over fueling. I have removed Megajolt plug and tried on Edis limp home settings but still no success. I need your help, what other tests can I do before starting fresh with ignition and fuel system?
Twin Webers QuestionI was running a 38dgas carb on my race tuned stage 3, 2.1 pinto. I wanted the growl & smoothness of twin webers. I sourced some & had them re-built by Russ at TorqueTune. We test fitted them last week (with a few bits of engine bay customisation). I'm heading back so Russ can drill the inlet manifold so I can get my servo brakes back! The webers still need setting up correctly which leads me to my question... When idling in the garage all is fine, but when I'm driving & I depress the clutch to come to a stop at the junction the revs drop & the engine stalls. Is this because the timing & set-up has not been completed yet? I'm learning all the time & really appreciate everyone's help!
