Re: S3 Rev counter

I've done a test and I confirm that the signal I was talking about allows the rev counter to run. However, because it comes from one half V12, it counts only half of the turns! There is one wire coming from the second amplifier. I do have to use the 2 signals. How can I do that ? Do I've simply to u...

S3 Rev counter

Hi,
I've an XJS engine with the Marelli ignition.
The signal coming from one of the amplifier goes through a 6.8Kohm to the XJS counter.
Can I plug directly this signal without any resistor to the input from the S3 Rev counter ?
Thanks for your return

Re: V12 ECU

Not one but 2 problems on the fans. Bad contact into the connector from the Otter switch and a grilled ground cable connected to the relay. Yesterday afternoon I ve done ~1km on the road. All sounds good. A few meters on the 5th. https://youtu.be/_kn9hV8CU5I https://youtu.be/oL3UIERpyRY Next step is...

With the fact that nothing seems to happen with the vacuum applied manally, I'm looking now for a new Marelli ignition ECU.
Hope to find one soon.

Re: V12 ECU

On your question : "One last question: When the engine runs, can you hear the injectors clicking? (mechanic's stethoscope or long screwdriver or wooden dowl)" Yes, I've tried with a wooden dowl and I've been able to hear the several clicks done on each injectors. As I do have a second set of 12 inje...

Re: V12 ECU

Hi, I've changed the plugs and set the pot @0.36V. Not easy for sure. It looks like it has less fumes. But the problem is that the car is not far enough reassembled to go on the road and run enough @higher rpm. :hammerdrill: I 'll set this topic aside for now. I'll come back later on and after been ...

Re: V12 ECU

Hi, Ive measured the pot as you did. Between G and Y I find 4,47K, Y and R starts at 0,65K until 3k. Not the same result. As I understand that the Red is the signal, Mine is high compare to yours. In other words at idle I've already a signal from higher rev. I'll reduce the value by setting up anoth...
