    It's a shielded headphone jack/plug pair... :)

    Ah... I installed a nice quality headphone jack/plug pair on the wire again when I set it up. I never did find a great way to run it, but I intended to put it behind the bulkhead connector plate to...

    Nothing useful, unfortunately. Mike's MegaSquirt behaved exactly like mine does, so that's not it.

    I'm back to thinking it's an ignition issue, which seems to be the consensus anyway. I'm going...

    That wold be great! I really wanted to try that, but I didnít want to deprive anyone of a working car while they mailed me their ECU. Iíll PM you my address, and if you want to PM me a PayPal address...

    Oh yeah, here's a picture of the bulkhead connector install. I lengthen a few of the wires to ensure that nothing would get pulled out accidentally. Everything is soldered and heat shrinked where...

    I do have a Stimulator. I got it so I could do tests with a computer-based instrument cluster without having to work inside a running car all the time. I played with it a bit a few weeks ago when I...

    Still no luck, I'm afraid.

    I took Dan's advice and replaced the nearly 40 year old bulkhead connectors with a brand new 31 pin weather pack bulkhead connector. I tested each wire as I went,...

    Can someone test my MegaSquirt II 3.57?

    I've run out of ideas about why my 3.0L MegaSquirt conversion won't run. Would someone here be able to test my ECU? The unit is a MegaSquirt II 3.57. I figured I'd mail it out to someone who has a...

    Ok, one more thing: There is very, very little room around the radio, so I don't think you can install skinny vents above it. Also, radios need a certain amount of space around them for ventilation,...

    Instead of cutting into the knee pads, you can install vents under the kneepads. You can get aftermarket vents built for that. Vintage Air seems to be an easy brand for this kind of stuff (they...

    I recently did this. I have an in-progress page that I'll publish shortly (with notes about the "in progress" parts) as I've been trying to get the car to actual start and run again, but the radio...

    I donít have a truck, but UHaul trucks have tow hitches. Iím not sure if their pickups do, but the larger box trucks certainly do. Iíve rented one before (and a flatbed trailer) to pick up a parts...

    I tried pulling the plugs and cranking the engine, but the high-torque starter I have tops out at 200 RPM. At that speed EDIS goes to ~5 degrees as measured with a timing gun. I know EDIS is...

    Ah -- that makes sense. I can probably get up to 400 RPM without any compression to worry about. I'll give that a shot this weekend. Thanks!

    I would only use a permanent timing offset in...

    Ah -- that answers my question about that discrepancy. Thanks!

    I had a whole reply your first post before I saw your follow-up. :)

    Here's what I have now:

    I think you mentioned this before, but I wasn't thinking about it clearly. I understand now -- it's adjusting the SAW signal sent to EDIS to control the timing advance. I guess I can't add any sort...

    Another small note: while trying to figure out why I can't get CAN bus to work, I noticed that I never changed any of the jumpers on my MS 2. Apparently for EDIS and its VR sensor input...

    Not much of a change, I'm afraid.

    First, I checked the VR sensor. My "eyeballing it" was way, way off, because I apparently don't know how big a millimeter is. I used 1mm worth of feeler gauges...

    I had to do this as part of my 3.0L engine swap. I don't have that exhaust pipe the runs under the transmission anymore, so I don't know if that's in the way, but if you get under the car you should...

    I do have a 3.57 (MS2357-C) with MS2-Extra 3.3.3 loaded (well, that's what's printed on the label; I never updated it beyond that).

    I popped off the case, and JP1 is on 2-3, and J1 is at 1-2, so...

    Not sure how I missed that -- I've already made the change on my laptop for when I go to the garage this weekend. Thanks!

    Will do. I think this may be one of the settings I copied from Josh, but I did get the impression that rising edge was more common. Thanks!

    My extremely limited understanding of tuning is that I want to hit AFR targets by adjusting fuel (via the VE table) at a given MAP. Which it seems like is exactly what auto-tune does. But I can...

    A feeler gauge -- I should have thought if that. I was going to try to figure out how to get a micrometer in there. :) Mine is mounted fairly low, so it's a bit of a pain to get in there.
