MG MGF Technical - Fuel/Ignition timing/Sensor Issue??
|fuel pumpor some of you that don|
|The problem is caused by the poor manifold vacuum at idle, the solution is to back the cam timing off to 45/40 and/or adjust the balance of air between the TB and the IACV, judicious adjustment of the TB *will* cure the problem. I have seen it on dozens of engines.|
Sterling work though on the head. The lightweight flywheel i fitted after the work that you and I did has made the car even more fun!
Before popping over to you again to asjust the cam a little, Is it just a case of adjusting the Idle screw with the cap on? Should I buy a guage to acuatley set the Fuel Pressure?
Backed the idle screw back a whole turn this morning and reset the throttle body (accelerator six times)
The car still feels jumpy but not half as bad.
I think I will continue "tweaking" I shall order a FSE guage so I can set that acurately.
You may still hear from me again Dave!
I dont like calling you up as you seems to spend most of your life on the phone!!
I was thinking about 3.2 bar??? Can you change the FSE presure on the fly or do u have to switch the engine off during re-adjustment?
