  1. Simply detaching wires would prove this.. It's slipping when not engaged, so not powered. If no power applied and it still slips it proves it not the wiring. The thinking of pressure building up and starting to move the cone clutch is one I considered too, hence replacing the solenoid originally. Good resources: https://www.buckeyetriumphs.org/gearbox https://www.landypedia.de/index.php/Überholung_eines_GKN_Overdrives
  2. That was a new solenoid from the OD refurb company up T'north... Such a freekin annoying OD.. Why can't it just work with all them parts new in it !
  3. It doesn't sound like you received an adjustable one... If new, you shouldn't need to play / adjust. The slack is taken up by adjusting the pressure plate that holds the ball element in place on those that can be adjusted. (See below) The slotted section should screw in and out to tighten against the joint element.
  4. @reb78 Alas, the meeting in Castle Donington looks to have been delayed.. I'll know for sure by Thursday!
  5. Shiny!!!! Slightly less shiny after some of those wonderful lanes near you 😂
  6. @reb78 Rich, You want me to try and get this before we meet up in October??
  7. Well that is good news Ralph... Well done.
  8. Mines been on for a similar time to Mo’s and no issues.
  9. Looks like all car mags / online car associated press were given the same two cars in the same location to record their launch reviews..

    Raise V8 CR

    Or just buy a complete Plug and Play system (Including loom) from Megasquirt V8 ..... Highly likely it can be installed in a day !!!
  11. Just a quick note to pull this to a close.... Yesterday the owner did some checks... All sensors between 998 - 1008 ohms. Spare / old hub and sensor (That had previously recorded an error in the ECU) counted at 60 teeth and sensor within specified range. Owner looked at the last hub they installed... O-ring around the top of the sensor perished.. Only 6 months old. Sensor itself corroded and evidence of water in the tube. Hub & sensor swapped out for the older spare. All was good. No more random pulling and no errors recorded in the ECU. Thanks for you help all, especially @sierrafery for pointing him in the right direction....
  12. I seem to recall that the TD5 will not rev for around 10 seconds if the MAF is disconnected. Normal service resumed once it decides there is no MAF and resorts to using a stock table from its memory. I suggest a new / known good MAF to start with and then check the wire continuity down to the plug to the ECU. Had a friend who had MAF wire broken at ecu socket. (As well as air temp sensor wire) Truck ran but because of temp sensor was under powered. The only thing that really stops them running is a lack of Crank sensor.... Other than that they a have a lot of redundancy options built in.
  13. Thanks.. I've passed this along. He thinks it was after replacing the rears the TC issue started so will start with those....
