XD/XF Idle / Ignition?? Fault
Ive just fitted a dissy out of an XF EFI (with the hall effect sender) from the wreckers hooked up with a Silicon Chip High energy ignition to an XD.
Pulled up at BP today to fill up with ultimate, went to leave and it wouldnt start. After pushing it out of the way... I fiddled around with the new wiring and it ran... for 50 metres then proceeded to break down again. (luckily in front of a deli so I got some lunch)
Got assistance 20min later and it started then ran home perfectly.
The only thing which is weird is that when it idles on GAS or petrol under no load it 'burbles' and misses a bit. When you hook up a strobe to no 1 cyl it also seems a little intermittant, yet the tacho is rock steady.
Does anyone know the history on the hall effect sensors in those dissys? Were / are they unreliable? The reason I ask is that a third party one is worth $120!?!?
Ive checked, double checked and spent all of yesterday and today looking at my wiring and the High energy ign. I even bypassed all of the safety switches on the gas, checked for vacuum leaks, replaced plugs, leads, dissy cap, rotor button... etc.
