Steve Dunford Posted February 27, 2008 Report Share Posted February 27, 2008 This one is an old Chev V6 of unknown origin, and the project has kinda fallen into my lap. I've read Bruces thread and was going to jump in on it but theres nothing worse than a thread hijack, so here is my one... What I have is the engine, which was running a carb quite happily, but as its going to be used in winch challenge competitions there was the idea to put a ford throttle body on it instead, which has two injectors above the butterflys. This is purely to give it stable running on stupid angles... personally I would have fitted a cheap old LPG kit and been done with it - but the owner has bought all the gear and its all fitted physically now so onwards and upwards we go. So far he has the LinkG3, an air temp sensor, a water temp sensor and thats about as far as he got. I'm now trying to nut out the quickest, and the easiest way to get it running - and also the best way (just in case thats quick and easy too The distributor is a standard one with a coil built into to top of the cap, and thats about as tech as the engine gets - and this is where I started to wonder just how the computer was going to know when to fire the injectors... Also the distributor - did I read that this will cause running problems? Would it be easy to convert the dizzy system to a coil pack / ignitor one? Any ideas or help much appreciated - I'd like to get this one sorted and running because a: its my first Link, and I quite like what I've seen and read so far, and b: it has a winch comp to be running for in a few weeks...
