Re: cosworth misfire

Sierra 4x4?? Is it a hi-rider, or a WRX-style sporty 4WD??

I don't know much about these motors, but if you've tried all of that, it might be a bit more serious. One other thing you could do is unplug each injector 1 at a time, if the motor dies, it is not that, if it idles the same, theres your problem.

hi i will try a fuel filter as it hasent had one for a while, the midfire is midrange and you can drive through it.
the only thing i can think of is it has a pair of BD10 piper cams init and not got the vernier pulleys on it yet.
also people tell me that i should have only put 1 cam in not a pair.
but 1 person told me to do the inlet cam and someone else told me to do the exhaust cam. who do i believe
