Always nice when things come together quickly and were more easy than expected. With my turbo conversion it is a different story

I love wiring, in fact the only thing i love more than wiring is inserting a hot needle in my eye

Here is what i started with


I spent yesterday going through the loom and tracing all the wires to the ECU to find out what they did and labeled them all up.

Today i took a brave pill and stripped out the wires i don't need which is pretty much everything

Here is what i ended up with


We had to buy a new radiator yesterday after the old one leaked but it was quite old. I fitted that today.

The alternator belt i ordered turned up today so i fitted that as well.

Having a few days off now while we go to Cornwall tomorrow for a few days in the van

There you go!
I'm just like you I lost will to move on as I'm at wiring stage for a last year.
I have lost my mojo for a bit...
I will start on my wiring soon when I can spend more than 20-30 in 1 go.

Cheers

Looking good Paul, glad you seen the light

btw i have 2 complete suzuki harnesses, maybe i can send them to you for some custom work need one mini and one midget

on a serious note is it hard to strip off the ecu bits and just use the fuse box, basic lights etc harness?
or is it better to shell out some hard earned on a custom harness?

keep it up

Your 2 questions are connected Marcus

1. i might need one of your looms

IF

2. Ive made a bollox of stripping out all the redundant wires

I'm still keeping the mini loom for lights and hope to just end up with a Suzuki ignition loom. There is just so many wires that share either power or ground and are piggybacked A but further into the loom. I'm after a neat install and it would of been easier to try and hide the complete loom but there is just so much of it.

My problem at the moment is that the engine will turn over no problem. The fuel pump relay is working on the ignition and primes as it should. There is power at the coil but that's where it stops.

I think there is a problem with the wiring from the coil, coil ignitor and noise suppressor and getting this signal back into and out of the ECU to the distributor. The distributor is not doing what its told as i don't get a spark.

A custom harness would be a luxury but not one i can afford. I am going to get another set of ignition leads, dizzy cap and rotor arm tomorrow and at least i can rule all of that out.

Out of interest does anyone know what the resistance should be across the coil when testing it?
