    Interesting data point regarding accessories consuming about 8nm (6ft/lbs).
    I'm guessing that explains the sudden increase in torque at 4900 RPM :D

    I would think the appearance of the belt...

    Was the return loop still in place? Fuel pressure is created by restriction so if you have a leakdown between primary and return the whole primary side would read low.

    You should definitely...

    You can also leak past fuel the accumulator seal to the return line which would present similarly. That is, higher pressure at pump than at fuel distributor. This is a failure mode not discussed...

    Different case - solenoid noise causing false RPM readings. Also my own car with unshielded cable, added shielding and tuned the hardware noise filters.

    It's the OEM optional rack - I would rate it "ok". Has to come off to open the louvers. Fits in the trunk but a little awkwardly, the OEM kit comes with a hold-down clamp to keep it from rolling...

    Speaking from direct experience it may not be related to the VR input at all.

    A data log and a high speed sync error log would be the preferred place to start, so that the sync loss can be...

    Also 20-30 seconds is a strangely long period. Could it correlate with AC compressor, fans, or something else switching on & off?

    Something might be in the logs if you can post one.

    Also a resistor was required for some PCB revisions, wasn't it? The surface-mount type 3.57? Although this seemed to affect higher RPMs more than anything.

    But I agree, ensure the conditioner...

    Being that concours-as-driver is expensive, inconvenient, and unsafe for the average DeLorean owner, maybe now there is an opportunity to purchase vehicles for this express purpose and sells shares...

    I run a standard single 2" ear GM alt rather than the Saturn/Cadillac 2-ear design, so had to make something custom. The Drive Stainless tensioner wasn't quite in the right position to work with...

    That's what I'm doing LOL. Have two old spare belts in the jack storage area now, plus a new $3 just-in-case AC belt.

    I also built an improvised WP/ALT belt quick changer using an off the shelf...

    They seem to be preferred by the Megasquirt crowd. I had an LC-1 fail for no good reason. The LC-2 seems to be fine, no issues yet, but the software is weird and doesn't always seem to work...

    I'm not sure offhand, but I can say that all of the Innovate software is very unstable and leave much to be desired. If I pull up some of my old datalogs the software will crash in short order.

    Personally I've only had them permanently installed, with the 0-1v output connected to the lambda box. I was also datalogging RPM, MAP, and the frequency valve duty cycle via an Innovate LMA-3 and...

    Normally it takes a minute or two for the stock O2 sensor to come online. Any WB controller will come online much more quickly which can cause a slightly leaner warm-up / cold start. I have the LC2,...

    VOD paint never ever seems to hold up, regardless of prep or paint formula. I've seen a few sets of pics (and one car firsthand) of painted VODs that peeled and left paint shrapnel everywhere,...

    I do now, as of 1PM LOL

    Finding quality belts in-stock for a reasonable price was a challenge. O'Reillys wants something like $30 for each belt. The local NAPA had them and they're made by...

    First 0.7s: 13.5 to 12.4
    Next 8s: drops to 11.92
    --From this point it slowly tapers down as battery slowly depletes
    At 80s: 11.68

    I have a CAN bus gauge with programmable warnings. I'll be...
  21. [Engine] Lost a water pump belt - some data & lessons learned

    Had an exciting moment on the highway this weekend when the water pump / alternator belt snapped. Everything turned out OK, no engine damage, only spoiled plans. Belt was a Dayco top-cog, no more...

    I do, originally because the 6AL-2 could be used for boost timing retard and I installed the MSD rather than modify the distributor on a k-jet turbo build. When I went EFI I left it in place because...

    I mentioned this in a PM, but for posterity - once connected, disable the fuel pump & check timing on both 1 & 6.

    The reluctor has 3 long, and 3 short teeth. If the VR wiring is backwards 50% of...
