Re: High Hydrocarbons

I agree, I've been reading up on people who have used various techniques of repair and most say get it replaced. so I will ring eurocarb on Monday. I do have a set of throttle bodies and fuel rail in my garage though but I think I still need the car mobile if I was going to fully convert it, I mean ...

Re: High Hydrocarbons

I have a adaptronics e420d ecu . if you look closely at the trigger wheel, you can just about see a blue arrow about 1 tooth back from the pulley mark. the arrow has "tdc" wriiten under it. if I align that arrow with tdc the cams look perfect. I remember the guy who installed the mapped ignition cut...

Re: High Hydrocarbons

In my mind I am thinking that the trigger wheel mark should line up with the pulley and maybe the outfit who rebuilt the engine has fitted the trigger wheel slightly off resulting in the cams being slightly out ?

Re: High Hydrocarbons

I checked cam timing today https://i.ibb.co/3rNmqcq/20200910-145501.jpg https://i.ibb.co/wz0rTV3/20200910-145523.jpg trophy now as you can see this is on mapped ignition, and although the original pulley marks line up the trigger wheel mark is slightly behind. if I adjust it so that the trigger whee...

Re: High Hydrocarbons

Hi At the mot, the car only just made it through by increasing the mixture to 3.50% co which brought the carbons down below 1200ppm just long enough for the analyser to print the ticket. However I went straight back home and checked the ignition timing which wasn't bang on 10 degrees btd so I adjust...

High Hydrocarbons

Hi My hydrocarbons are way off, in order to bring them down to around 300-400ppm is to increase the CO to over 8% if I set the co to 2-3 % the hydrocarbons are 1300+. This is on mapped ignition, the carbs were recently rebuilt by eurocarb uk and the engine was rebuilt 2-3000 miles ago the head did h...

Re: Fuel Pipe Replacement

on a side not my car just passed its mot with no advisories. although it was a battle trying to get it through the emissions, the hydrocarbons were far too high. the new requirements are 3.50% max co and 1200ppm hydro, I had to up the co to 3.50 which just brought the hydro down long enough to pass....

Re: Fuel Pipe Replacement

Re: Fuel Pipe Replacement

It comes with a small canister style filter that you are meant to screw into the input side on the pump, however it wouldn't, it would screw in about half way then...
