Dellorto Twin 40s Jetting?

Just wondering if anyone has some tried and tested jetting info for Dellorto 40s on a 4AGE. My setup is currently as follows. Car starts and idles, but will be going for tuning soon... so wanted to make sure I have something in the right ball park before it goes away. Dellorto DHLA 40 G Chokes: 30 M...

Re: Engine won't fire until I stop cranking? (Timing Issue?)

Just spoke to the guy who sold the diy to me a while back. Apparently this should be spring assisted. Must have come off... Hopefully it's not too tricky to fix.

To be continued...

Re: Engine won't fire until I stop cranking? (Timing Issue?)

^ Yeah this is the one I have. With the same ignition module wired in currently too. So from the sounds of it, these 4 prongs shouldnt really be able to move at all... I did find this link about taking out vacuum advance in this very dizzy, but it doesnt mention locking in this part. http://nw.rhoca...

Re: Engine won't fire until I stop cranking? (Timing Issue?)

Thanks again jondee. Had another look last night and got the engine just about spluttering into life. I think the cause of my issues are the timing. I have the crankshaft set at 0, and the cam gears at TDC. Piston 1 is definitely on its compression stroke. I have also lined up the dizzy rotor with t...

Re: Engine won't fire until I stop cranking?

Update to this. Thought it might be battery related, so increased the gauge of cables from the boot. Not much better. Started a compression test... 120psi on cylinder 1 and 2. Battery ran out after that... From what I'm reading 120psi is no good to even start. This engine was "rebuilt" by ...

Re: Engine won't fire until I stop cranking?

Thanks jondee. Checked each spark plug one by one, and also by rotating the dizzy to check the plugs are wired correctly in the firing order 1342. All good there. Plugs smell like they are getting fuel. I also added the starter relay mod today, which interestingly now gives me the sound of the start...

Engine won't fire until I stop cranking? (Timing Issue?)

Wondering if anyone can help me. I have an engine swapped Ke25, running a 4age with twin carbs. Timing looks to be all set from TDC correctly. The engine cranks, but doesn't seem to want to kick into life until I actually stop turning the key. At which point it coughs but of course the key is now no...

Re: 4ac & 4age in FLORIDA (NOW parting out)

Hey I'm interested in the alternator bracket with adjuster from the 4age, and the rear water outlet pipe from the water pump that goes to the rear from either engine if you have it.
