  1. And? How is this project evolving?
  2. Thanks, I will take a look around for this. I have a resistor, but not a lot of confident in that block of rust ;-) . I will check rave on the internet and see if I as a digibeet can find something. Btw, the Haynes manual is not accurate on the newer model years. The +'90 version is different than stated in Haynes, but it is a good basic.
  3. Nice build! What kind of rockers are those? Are the heads itself also ported/flowed? Good that you saved the manual flywheel. I'm looking for them for years, but are impossible to find (without costing a kidney or liver). Tom
  4. Does somebody perhaps has a wiring diagram of a 90-94 model on pdf or digital? Thanks
  5. Thanks all. Still not found the proper diagrams, so if anyone have something?... Geoff, not talking about the Softdash, that is indeed a complete different type of bulkhead and heater. The classics also had a change between the 86 and 87 modelyear. The pluggings are the same, but the control is completely different.
  6. Thanks for the reply! Still fiddling around. I have found a wiring loom for the heater. Still need to try it. I have the plastic heater and it fits in the 1986, so that is OK. Now find some time to get it to work. Still would love to find a good wiring diagram. The Haynes manual diagrams are "meuh" at the best...
  7. No, unfortunately not. I got the resistor, and I got the heater. I can create my own loom, that is no problem, but the electrical schematics available are not from 1990's type of Ranges...
  8. I have a 86 RRC with the old 2-speed heater in it. Now that the fan is broken I want to use this as an excuse to upgrade to a more modern heater (as the 2 speed high speed is medium effective and there is no heat out of the middle vents (only window or feet heat)). I've found a good 3-speed (plastic one) which mechanical fits, so that is ok. Now try to figure out the wiring. The cable going into the fan is a 4 wire loom. I would expected to be a 2 wire one, so a bit puzzled. Is the heater resistance inside the motor with these 4 wire loom motor (I also received a separate heater resistor (with 5 wires ??) . Has anybody a good wiring diagram available? I have 1 from the Hayes manual, but that one is for the first 3-speed version and not for a later one...
  9. And how is this project going to? I'm thinking of upgrading from MS1 to MS3 at my 3.5 to 4.6 swap. I want the direct drivers to the ignition and get rid of the EDIS module. I know it is reliable, but would like to have as less components as possible.
  10. Which year Mondeo fan are you guys using? Double or single fan?
  11. Yes, It is running again. The stutttering was most likely due to a bad injector (broken internal connector). The non-starting issue was solved by 8 new spark plugs..... Aparantly somebody started my range now and then just to hear it running. My start-up is rather rich, so after a time it smoked mine plugs... Well, after cleaning I have some spares now.
  12. Checked the connectors (VR - Coils), but all look like new from inside. Also the trigger wheel looks good. I need to check the wire connections 1 by 1 until I find something. Something should be in there. Will update you guys with possible news.
  13. I'll check wednesday evening. Should be an easy solution. Still would be easy to have a spare VR sensor.
  14. Thanks guys! I checked the battery and even tried the Red Top from my daily diesel RRC. Fuel pump is priming for a couple of seconds (also my second pump in the second tank). Also LPG will be released when actually starting. I haven't checked the coil packs; 2 Broken sounded pretty strange to me. I have a new one somewhere, a good point to try and you never know. One thing I just started to remember, the MS+EDIS Rover never missed a beat in 3 years, until the last night trip a couple of months ago. The car sputtered a couple of times, but it kept going and the last 3 hours of the trip without sputtering or issues. The night trip was really wet, muddy and fun. I just thought the VR sensor got a bit dirty. Nige, I will mail you for a new VR sensor and a possible spare one. It is good to try it. Otherwise I don't know.
  15. I got the set of Nigel running for 3-4 years now. Working great and flawless, till now.... After a few months of no use, I wanted to started my offroader (86 RRC 3.5 EFI with 3.9 Inlet and full MS1 with EDIS set from Nige). Nothing... Engine is rotating, but not even a cough. - Check the spark first, all 8 no spark - Check the timing in Tunerstudio. All ok - Check rpm in Tunerstudio, At startup around 150rpm - Removed the EDIS to MS connection (should run on a fixed 10 degree) - Checked voltage at middlepoint of 2 coils (Ford). 0V when in rest, 12+V when ignition is on, 11V when starting - Changed complete EDIS module with a known working one. Still no spark. EDIS just needs the timing from the trigger wheel (is working because got rpm in Tunerstudio and polarization is ok (run with it for more then 3yr without issues) EDIS changed with known good one. Coils get power. What more can I do? Thanks, Tom
