What engine are you torturing? Is it inside some car?

You have sweet toys :)

How does it go with the valve? Does the engine start as of today? Asking in light of the "rusEfi v12" idea using your engine.
I spotted it on craig's list, it was right on my way home from work and he was only asking $1000.....last night it came home for $900. Its from the 70s or early 80s but I don't think its ever been used.

Sadly the engine has not been touched :(

Lana's really really good about adding stuff to the list of "the shops not done until" stuff so I've not touched the engine. Soon the work will begin...I hope....but now when it is fixed I can do all the testing on the bench...well after I build stands and adapters and such.

Not ecu related but since I can't be in the shop until Lana releases me all I can do is stuff at work like shop for a dyno or design new wheels that look ind of 308ish but more modern I think and 18" and wide instead of factory 16" and narrow. Here's the first wheel fresh off the mill in china, just needs paint and 3 siblings. The china place has forged blanks, then I need to fit what I want inside...I';m pretty happy with how they are coming out and can't wait to see then on the car....of maybe even drive with them on the car :someday :)

I found a stepper with a gear reduction the my ECU should be able to drive directly and a little encoder for the back I should be able to read and a big 1 1/2" valve that should have plenty of flow for the dyno...now hopefully the stepper can turn the valve and I have a working $2000 load valve for just over $100.

I think those valves are open or close with simple limit switches to know which? I imagine an encoder could be added to get some control but its not baked into the design and controlling low flow rates with a big ball valve can be a challenge just like controlling off-idle air flow with big throttles is. Also the required size is 1 1/2" as in 1.5" not 1/2.....which drives the price up quite a bit.

So, the new dyno sitting there has me motivated to fix the engine....i started ordering parts. Everything that's broken is custom of course so 3-6 weeks on most of it then stuff like the cylinder sleeve comes as a blank 4 weeks from now when its off backorder and I need to machine 10-12lbs of iron of to find the sleeve hiding inside.

Anyway, it's moving again.

I have a plan to make a dyno wiring harness.....there might be room for some pre-planning here to create a way for you to plug in. If I'm not mistaken I'll still need some things in my ECU so it might require careful planning as I don't want a butchered dyno harness when were done....but he can discuss as the day arrives.
