    I wondered about this too!

    I notice that SIRHC also supply this one, which produces a 0-5v rather than a 0-12v square wave. It's $16 rather than $35, so as the Easysteer controller needs a 5 to...

    Hi Roger.

    You could try advancing the static timing further, but at the first sign of pinking under load back it off again. The other thing to be aware of with a lot of idle advance is that it can...

    Hi Tony.

    It's my Thames Valley meet the following Sunday (the 21st), so it may be easier for us all to get together then instead.

    Roger,

    The AFR readings look pretty close to me. There are a couple of things I'd check:

    My original rubber hoses never leaked, and I rue the day I replaced them with silicone hoses. My experience is that these will stay watertight after a few re-tightenings of the clips PROVIDED:

    That's true if the top of the air filter is open to the air with unlimited flow - in fact I remember Mike Hiddart proving this on his dyno. However, these tend to be fitted when bonnet clearance is...
