  1. Hi Mike, try compressing the spring up so no force is being applied to the lower arm. Then perch the subframe up on a bench, so it's supported under the ball joint. Then hang something quite weighty from the stub axle which should allow for some "grip" to bear on the tapered joint and hopefully now when you tighten the nut the spindle doesn't turn. Good luck 👍
  2. Hi Adam, just had a look at a wiring diagram and can't see a and ignition switched live feed to the ecu, but I do see the same wire (green) that goes to the fuel pump relay for it to latch also goes to pin 1 on the ecu, so I think that's what the ecu has to see for it to pulse the injector earth circuit pin 12 at ecu. I think the 12v supply from the main nut of the starter motor just goes to the pin 30 of the fuel pump relay.
  3. Well I agree the ignition module/Hall effect sends a signal over to the fuel pump relay for it to latch, which in turn provides a 12v feed to fuel pump via pin 87 and and a 12v feed to to injectors via pin 87b. so now the injectors have a 12v feed, we now need an "earth return" to complete the circuit for the injectors. This is provided through the ecu pin which I believe is "switched" on and off by the ecu, thus creating a pulsed injector. the earth circuit for the injector is "open" until the ecu is "aware" of "something going on". That "something" has to be a signal of some kind from the ignition module/Hall effect side of things, otherwise how does it know, when to pulse the injectors at required intervals? Anyway that's my understanding of our gte injection system, I might be wrong but surely the ecu must need to have a "reference" signal of some kind to work by. Adam have you checked the ecu has power to it, I think it's main 12v for the injection loom comes from the main starter motor solenoid nut where the battery live connects to it. Not sure if power to the ecu from there, goes through a fuse. once again good luck.
  4. Hi Adam, well as far I know the Hall effect/ ignition module triggers off the ignition coil for the spark while also sending a signal over to the fuel pump relay to operate the fuel pump which also gives the injectors a 12v feed. The ecu must also be able receive or see this signal sent out by the Hall effect/ ignition module for it to activate (switch the earth) for the injectors as this is the reference point of injection timing. So connections to and from the ecu and ignition module would be my next thoughts to check. I will need to check with the wiring diagram as to what colour wire to concentrate on. sorry if I haven't been much help here,....but I hope you can crack this soon.
  5. Snowy your quite right there, I've had a little play with my gte and by disconnecting or loosely connecting the air flow wiring, it seems to give a non start situation. Adam have you got a "noid/led" tester to plug into the injector wiring at the injector? This could tell if you are getting an ecu switched earth. It should pulse/flash on cranking and engine running. I have disconnected one injector on mine and with the fuel pump relay bridged pin 30 to 87b this gives a 12v reading on both pins (ignition off or on, same reading) which sounds strange as one pin comes from the ralay providing the 12v the other one goes to the ecu, so you wouldn't think I would see a 12v on both, but as the other 3 injectors are still connected i would have power going through those injectors so might see a ghost voltage as they all share the same path to the ecu. Now with all injectors connected and engine running I still get a 12v reading at both pins (fuel pump relay connected) So Adam, have you tried/checked if you crank your one over and when it starts does it keep running if you don't let go of the key and keep cranking? if it cuts out even when you have kept cranking is the spark still present at the spark plug (HT tester required) if the spark is there all the time even when it has cut out and kept cranking, then I would think all is good there if yours stays running when kept cranking and cuts out when you let go of the key then something is being lost from the "ignition on" position If all is good with the HT spark and you have 12v is at the injectors and the noid/led light flashes ok then the ecu would seem to be receiving the correct signal from the Hall effect/ignition module. let us know how you get on.
  6. Hi Adam, you've probably already done this but it might be worth checking/cleaning the "air flow sensor wiring plug" as a poor connection there on the "pins" could possibly create a "fire up, cutting out" fault. Good luck.
  7. Hi Chris, we also went here in August this year and was very impressed with the collection of vehicles on display. The GSI at the Lakeland Motor Museum
  8. A BRIEF STOP BY THE KIRKSTONE PASS INN ALSO WE SPOTTED THIS IN THE LAKELAND MOTOR MUSEUM
  9. OUR EARLY DAYS ON THE ROAD (1982)....WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN! I'M IN THE MK2 CORTINA ESTATE... [WELL MY ARTISTIC IMPRESSION OF IT ANYWAY] OUR THREE MANTAS......SEEN IN THE LAKE DISTRICT RECENTLY THE RED ONE IN THE PICTURE HAS NOW BEEN RESPRAYED A GRAPHITE GREY AFTER A COMPLETE REBUILD, AND UNFORTUNATLY THE WHITE HATCH HAS SUFFERED A REAR END COLLISION AND I BELEIVE IS DUE TO BE WRITTEN OFF ...WHICH WAS A VERY SAD END TO OUR TOUR OF THE LAKE DISTRICT CELEBRATING OUR 50TH BIRTHDAYS THIS YEAR. I HOPE IT ISN'T TOO LONG BEFORE WE'RE ALL BACK IN CONVOY AGAIN!
  10. Hi, just a thought but is the airflow trunking connected to intake manifold securely and also the wiring harness plug on the airflow meter properly fitted. Remove the harness plug and make sure the pins are clean, its worth a look.
  11. hi guys, thanks for the info' on the local pub meets, i will keep them in mind and look forward to maybe seeing some of you in the near future,thanks.
