Quick experience sharing again in Luigis world. Didn't make winkie lights today, but sure she is ready for a trip tomorrow,,, when sobering up. Nothing wrong with the rest of the electrical system. Relay 1 feeds that and the whole trip, did change 1 wire in the relay base, cooked down to 2 things, either ECU or cam sensor. Another faulty sensor. And my broken ones,they measure 648 and 671 when cold, zero when warm.  Have a good feeling she be fine tomorrow.     Only 4.10am .    

Cheers tom.

And this was (another) failed cam timing sensor?

First failure was incorrect clearence,, no clearance. I'm suprised it lasted that long, po rode may be 2000m, and I about the same before failure. Just had to drop in the next one up in the mountains, to get home. Took it out and made clearance. It lasted another 2000m, before failure. BUT a close look yesterday reviels a tiny touchmark, so probably marked it, on the 60m trip home. 2 destroyed because of wrong clearence.  I have a couple  on order,  for a Fiat I think. 

Cheers tom.

The sensor gap should be between 0.6 and 1.2mm. Its really hard to measure in situ, this is how I do mine.

Stick a small blob of JB Kwik on the tip and bolt it in place, don't turn the motor.

Allow time for it to set up, pull the sensor out again and measure the thickness of the epoxy.

As for making the sensor oil tight, i'm convinced the oil leaks through the sensor not around it. I took to carrying a spare sensor in the Monkey Paw trap there's absolutely nothing you can do on the road if the sensor fails open.

I don't have a VII any more but I have a two Valve Griso, it can be just as frustrating.

 

I'm pleased to see some of you are still using the Go Winkie as Docc calls it to instantly troubleshoot a bad contact in the wiring to the ECU relay, I remember finding mine at about half brightness when the stand switch was acting up.

Cheers
