A little update, Good old Deecee picked up some supplies for my wiring in the ecu.


Finialy found the keys for the dam thing :D :D :D, So now i can actaully disarm the alarm (damn dynatrons)

BIG NEWS

Were moving, Bad news is that i have the pack the garage up, luckly we cleaned it out and filled the works rubish bin with what came out, lol :lol:

Luckly the new place has the same size garage but needs some TLC, so that will be intresting. Maybe ill document "garage repairs" in this thread.
The reasion for the move is that my partner has 5 horses and we have been paying for grazing off sence (avg 300 a month)

This place is a lifestyle block, nice and quiet :D

Cos Nick is such a slackass..

Just a couple of pics I found off my phone of some welding back at the old house

Image

Image

So last week I was over at Nick's to evaluate the wiring job ahead of me.
Yes, I did kindly volunteer to do his engine wiring and figure out any other electrical gremlins :)

We pulled the dash out to expose the bird's nest that is the factory wiring. Oh the fun of it all :)

Today I wandered over after some errands to start on the engine wiring and sorting it out. Nick had already started on the new link ecu engine loom by putting on a plug, but I wasn't satisfied in trying to figure out the link loom in situ, so I pulled the wiring out and grouped all the wires by function. This will make it easier to wire up to sensors, coils, injectors etc later on.

Half a mess
Image

Tidy and grouped logically ready for wiring to the engine components.
Image

More wiring fun later. I have to pull the old alarm and ensure that the timing thingimebob works. Nick, remind me to bring a battery over to get the headlights, dash and indicators working :)

on the weekend i took a break from my own car and worked on Nick's car for the day. can't be bothered explaining as i normally do, but the pictures should do the trick :)

edit - i'm going to explain what i've done just as a record for me :D

So Nick asked me some months ago to start to pull apart the plug so he could fix the broken insulation on the wire. Using a small screwdriver set, i popped the tabs and pulled the wiring from the plug
Image

as you can see, the insulation has broken exposing the raw wire. This was the same for all wires into the plug.
Image

the rubber grommet acts as a water resistance barrier. Commonplace on plugs in the engine bay. I pried open the retention tabs to release the grommet.
Image

and pushed the grommet back along the wire. At this stage, I closed the tabs back so I could slip the heatshrink onto the wire
Image

i then bent the wire 90 degrees and used a heat gun to shrink the heatshrink over the broken insulation.
Image

then replaced the grommet, closing the retention tabs. its a tight squeeze with more insulation under the grommet
Image

as you can see, all need repairing.
Image

and all done
Image

i pushed the wires/connectors back into place, ensuring that the metal lug clicked into place. as the grommet was thicker due to extra insulation, i used the jewellers screwdriver to force the grommet into place in the hole. always good when there is a satisfying click
Image

nick was starting to mount the ecu, relays and fusebox. he had to cut the mounting tabs on the relays as he has relay holders for mounting. side cutters for the quick win.
Image

next job was the coil loom. this came from an RB/holden setup (Nick can confirm) and we were having trouble tracing wires back to the ignitor, so I decided to strip it down to be able to trace wires back more easily
Image

the person who nick got the loom and ignitor had replaced broken plugs previously, and subsequently soldered the new plugs on. UGH! Joints were not insulated properly, this having corossion on the wire and one of the solder joints had broken apart. If we were to fire up teh car, then tracing that issue would have been one of the last things we would have inspected. Lucky that I exposed the loom and its crap.
Image

as you can see, insulation that has dried out and broken, exposing the wire.
Image

all loom tape and insulation off. meassy job!
Image

i like to use crimps when joining wire. Stronger and better electrical connection than solder.
Image

4 plugs were replaced by the previous person, so 12 wires to crimp up. wires to particular coils were labelled 1-6. zip tied to ensure that I knew where everything should be going.
Image

crimped up ready to insulate
Image

smooth! everything a lot better now
Image

takes a little while to do the job right, but at least we know that when the engine starts, that this is not a weak point if we need to troubleshoot.
Image

roughly finished. I noticed that the two original plugs were broken and these will have to be replaced using the same methods as per above.
Once that is done, then i can go around with loom tape and some split corrugated plastic cover and that is one job done and dusted.

no worries. the photos were pretty self explanatory, but some context always helps
