Ignition timing problem

Hey guys, I read the write-ups on setting ignition timing and got it down. However, when I went to adjust timing after reading with a timing light, I run out of adjustment on the distributor (I'm sitting at a number before 10 degrees). I need to twist the dizzy left, as I'm too far to the right on t...

Re: CloudStrife's AE88

Installed the AW11 disty I had for months finally; looks 10x better. Hopefully it fixes the oil leak I had as well, the factory o-ring on the old disty still looked decent.. https://s2.postimg.org/9iv9knzbt/20171214_230547.jpg Only downside is it didn't come with the bracket which holds the spark pl...

Re: Rear seat latch and striker.

Do you have a link for the Ebay listing? I can compare to my strikers on my GT-S hatch. They have factory hatch seats.

Re: CloudStrife's AE88

You guys suck :P It's M6, with a thread pitch of 1.00. I could only get a 40mm length bolt at the hardware store, I believe 35mm would be factory. https://s6.postimg.org/dgqz8zvht/20171212_162424.jpg Finally got the prop valve back on. It was a bitch.

Re: "Kentucky AE86: A Levin Story"

Do you like to fry your brain??

No but seriously, that is awesome. EE is hard enough, I can't imagine going around easy electives to take a rest with, and then, just, you know, signing up for a hard minor too :)

How the hell do you have so much fender gap on the fronts?

This was mine @ purchase with factory suspension:

Factory springs sag, but not that much, plus you have lowering springs???

Re: 4AGE 16v fwd to rwd

Are you that committed to an early model 4A-GE? If you go 20v, there are almost a thousand engines floating around on Ebay and the like with free shipping, and sometimes residential. If you're already going to rip out the engine, you might as well go 20v, unless you are trying to keep it more stock....

Re: Jumper cable mishap burrrnnnnn

I agree with Johndee, vacuum leak would be more suspect than a faulty TPS for 20v, never really heard them go wrong, but 16v on the other hand... haha. I think the motor is just sorting itself. Just drive around like you usually do, and maybe even treat it like a rotary and run it hard for a few day...

Re: Help with EGR delete

Haha, yes! the IACV is hooked up and should be working. I was having a weird issue at one point (after it settled down and idled at a little over 1k), where I started to play with the throttle and opened it up a bit. Randomly it shot up to 5k, and wouldn't come down. So I turned off, and cranked. It...

Re: Help with EGR delete

So I didn't test the injectors.

I decided to plug that nipple and replace two burned out fuses in the bay. Also the oil wasn't even reading on the dipstick so I filled it up. It idles high, just like you said Deuce! (around 2K)

So now I'm off to route the coolant proper.

Re: Help with EGR delete

That sounds pretty good to me Dave, thank you!

I've never tested injectors before so It will be a learning experience..

I think all my multimeters (VOMs) are digital, so I'll see if the auto store has a noid light set for rent..

Re: CloudStrife's AE88

Anyone happen to know the thread pitch/length of the two flange bolts which secure the prop valve to the chassis? I think I lost mine in the move, and it's not available through dealer so I have no reference point..

Hey Deuce! Thanks for the quick reply. No, I deleted the canister when I removed the EGR components. I'm damn sure I did it correctly, but I can't verify as the zero thread is unaccessible, and I can't even get google to find the page to cache. I tried the wayback machine, but I need a login.

It also has A/C from the factory. I deleted the EGR and put the factory IACV back in place. I used the KS...

Re: Jumper cable mishap burrrnnnnn

Oh wait, it cranks, but it doesn't catch, right? So maybe EFI fuse?? You have spark, your starter is engaging, so you must not be getting fuel or air. Just for my interest.. Can you make a video of sparking the disty wires? Just find a chassis ground, have someone hold it close and get in the car an...

Dude, don't just randomly try ****. You were on the right path when you were going down the line investigating spark. There is a measurement in the FSM. You should have one anyway. Coil/igniters are pricey, you want to make absolutely sure it's still good. That's very strange you are getting spark, ...

Re: CloudStrife's AE88

Meh, I called them. It seems like the cable isn't long enough (but the sheath is). I fully slacked the E-brake, but it was too taught after the "T", not before it (was actually pretty slack on the e-brake handle side). So they asked me to take them off and measure them. Unfortunately the b...
