edit: update on the radiator, got it fully welded and tested for leaks, found 3, 2 pin pricks in my welding and also 1 pinprick in the the rat bastards welds who built it *happy*

also who the hell decides to make end caps out of 0.8 mm aluminum i had a night mare trying to tig to that i think i ended up on about 30 amps and 20 seconds to get a weld pool going *happy*, also spent nearly 2 hours chasing a pin prick up and down one of the welds hahaha





today i attacked the dizzy, yes the dizzy, it always amuses me with the electronic ability of today ( i mean japs has coils on plugs 25 years ago )why they still use dizzys, anyway this one is fairly smart, inside there is a 24 tooth 'crank' sensor a 4 tooth piston tdc sensor and a 1 tooth cam phase sensor, a coil and the distribution section ( rotor arm and stuff)

now because im going to be running coil on plugs and full sequential injection and spark i dont need the 4 tooth tdc sensor the coil or the dizzy but i do need the 24 tooth and the 1 tooth

so i decided to take this baby for a little spin... in my lathe *happy*
the first pic shows the size of the bloody thing... look at it !!

Cheers Robert,

Dave what i have done is turn a crank , cam , piston position sensor , coil and distributor ( all in one unit) into just a crank / cam sensor, binned everything i dont need and modified the casing to be as small as i could

brett, I can ask at the garage RE the coil but it will likely need postage cost; if you can get something local, all the better

excellent mate, thanks alot,


more Coil on plug updates

this clip end was really easy to replicate into some 6mm brass rod, drilled 4mm wide 5.45mm deep with a slit on one side, fitted with the clips from the original coil stem

the rubber bands help the longer stem to fit tight against the head, removes any potential vibration i just needed them to be a little tighter and couldnt think of anything better than Duck tape *happy*

Cheers mate, might be easier if you could grab some measurements for me?
measurement C is how far the plug goes inside to make contact if you get me?

on them vag coils (what i run) the very bottom of the coil *just* grips over the hex part of the sparkplug. the working guts of the coil extend down a little into the perforated bit IIRC. incase your thinking of modifying them :)

i want coil on plugs lol

i actually want to run these little beauties ( R8 coils but im reluctant to fork out untill i can get some solid dimentions )

I'm pretty sure the r8 coils are the same as the 2.0tfsi coils out of the mk5 golf or similar
