Camshaft Sensor Problems Seemingly Solved.

Post by Guest on Thu Feb 07, 2013 1:07 pm

Thank you once again HJ for kind help and advice and all the mind numbing code details you sent me. Jinxy seems to be running ok at the moment and I now feel that it was the conector on the sensor not having good contact that was the problem. I havent had a chance to try the three sensors I substituted, back on one of the trucks yet as my building and roofing work is manic due to having 6 days without any rain, Wonderful !!! I have just been back to my Workshop to pick up some materials and my friend in the next workshop had a"T" reg. Gran Move outside which he, it turns out has had at his house for over a year. Wanna buy it? How much I enquired curiously ? Well I was going MoT it and - and - and . Never mind all the Fairy Stories-- How much do you want for it as it is?( Bearing in mind it is pretty tidy and done 85,000 I thought quietly to myself he is going to want £500 for it). Well, he replied, as is-- I need to see £200 really. Poor fellow is now missing his right arm and Ive got it (the Gran Move-- not his arm ) secreted in my yard. BARGAIN !! All I want it for is the 1500cc engine to put in my 05 plate Tipper to give it a bit more grunt when I have got it seriously overloaded with ballast or topsoil, ( usually about 3 quarters of a ton ) All I wanted it for is the 1500 lump so if any of you need any bits then virtually everything else is availiable for sale. Hmmm, maybe I might put it in my X reg Romahome Hi-jet cos it could do with a bit more poke on the hills of Devon and Cornwall (when I get some time to myself). I have also got 4 Honda Actys for spares, with (Romahome bodies on), I have broken 6 or 7 Actys in the past and have a huge stock of spares for them and Demountable Romahome body spares too if anyone needs bits. Low milleage engines (43,000 ) sets of immaculate dropsides, all sorts of spares. Crikey !! You might all be getting the impression I am a Hoarder.CORRECT. Well I have stopped too long for lunch now and must get back to work . All the best to you friendly lot of Hi-Jet fans, and converse with you soon I hope. Regards, Woody 50 on the Isle of Wight.

Logi's Challenge.

Post by Guest on Thu Feb 07, 2013 7:57 pm

One step at a time Logi. I know my way round Fords and Skodas and after 9 years of Hi-Jets I am just about finding my way round them, but this Nuclear Powered Sony Laptop is another thing !!! Yes I will have a go at that at the weekend. Have got 5 at home, 3 at the Hotel, 6 at the garage and 2 at a friends place plus the Honda Romahomes ( looking very sorry for themselves after years of neglect on my part). Hmmm! just looking for destructions on how to download the pictures I have on this infernal device but cant see anything. So how the hell DO I download them. Answer me that without overloading my elderly tired brain??

Hope it is fixed! Still interested to know how the other sensors test out.

From memory they should have a resistance of 220 ohms

Thank you very much for your interest and help HJ. I have just dug out my multi-meter which I didnt think was very multi and yes of course it has got ohms on it so will check all three out. I sat in bed last night and looked through the handbook of my latest bargain --the Gran Move and then looked through the logbook and to my delight find out that it is a 1600 not a 1500 as I had thought so thats a bonus eh ? The thought of a 1600 Hi-Jet really appeals to me so it will go in my Tipper for sure. !00mph Tipper really appeals. Mind you my Red Beast will give it a run for the money. Its the quickest Hi-Jet I have got though my 03 Blue MPV is very quick even on LPG. ONLY 2 of my Hi-Jets havent got LPG. The white MPV I have which is 2002 has got a nice number on it LIII LPG (Little LPG ). Can you think of any problems I may have in putting the 1600 lump in bearing in mind too that it has an LPG set up.? Kind regards Woody 50.

I don''t know much about it but I'm guessing the LPG system will need some kind of richening to meet the extra fuel requirements.

It might just do it automatically from its lambda sensor enrichment.

I just don't know, I've always wanted to get the manuals and programming gear for the LPG ecu but no luck so far.

Seeing as your interested in doing the 1600cc engine conversion, I thought it's about time to do a proper write up of my 1.6 sportrak H series conversion as it'll be very similar to what your going to have to do.

Here it is:- http://www.daihatsuhijet.co.uk/engine-conversion-1-6-1600-sportrak-grand-move-terios-daihatsu-hijet/

Hope it gives you an idea of the game!

HI-JET IMPLANT - FROM 1600 GRAN MOVE.

Post by Guest on Sun Feb 10, 2013 8:50 pm

Once again I am indebted to you HJ for your kindness. The transplant is much as I had expected with the obvious bits to swap but the BHP figures and the cam info is very interesting. I have done a lot of engine tweaking and tuning on Fords and Skodas but this will be my first foray into Hi-Jet modding. Years ago I put a 1700cc Full Race X/Flow Drysumped Speedworth Hot Rod engine built by Cosworth. in my Mk2 Escort Van. It ran on DCOE 48s with 35mm chokes and developed 176bhp at 10,500rpm , with very little poke below 3,500rpm and was a pig in cold weather but what fun when it came on cam. Utterly ludicrous, but I loved it . Sold the engine when I got hard up for £2500 -- making a profit of £500 and 7 months of great fun making Porches look very silly on the bypass---- those were the days when I was first divorced and had some dosh -- for a while, and now I'm 6 years remarried and skint again. Time for another divorce maybe ? Nope-- stick with the Old Dragon. At least she doesnt moan at me for spending my hard earned pennies on cars and tools-- especially tools as they are tax deductable. I also grafted an 1800 Alfa-Romeo Twincam in the back of my Skoda 136 Coupe.120bhp was fun in a car that handled like it was on rails. I am never gonna grow up am I ???? I have still got the Alfa lump and the adaptor plate and flywheel- though the Skoda went to meet its maker last year.

HJ won't like the four letter word begining with F but the mk2 van sound fun although I doubt you took it out in the slippy stuff my other halfs stock mk2 4-door 1300 with big wheels was a fun pain to drive when it was a bit on the cool side.

you are correct it was the factory rwd mk 3 and it was awesome but got canned every so often rumors surface of one of them being up for sale as they made a few for testing but they always seem to be home brews with replica body kits. I'll stop dribbling now.

Hhhmmmmm !!!! Some lovely shots there. Loved my Lime Green Mk 2 "Door. Had loads of fun in it. But they didnt handle as well as my ultra low Skoda Rapid Coupes . Get in the middle of a cambered road and the front subframe would ground on the cats-eyes and it went round bends like it was on rails. I think I would love to lower a Hi-Jet to the limits but being 6 feet tall and nearly bald my scalp is covered in scars from tearing the skin back on the rubber door seal. Damn painful !! If I lower a Hi-Jet I would be in Hospital nearly every day. I have got intentions of stretching a Hi-Jet though as the ability to carry 8x4 sheets INSIDE the bed would be very handy. I have got another chassis to use to stretch it and loom and pipes would be easy but would need Propshaft Services to lenghten a prop ( if they are still trading ) . Time is the dearest commodity though. My dream has been to build a six wheeler coz I think that would look fantastic but the logistics of driving both rear axles I havent yet come to terms with. Do or did they make a Four Wheel Drive Hi-Jet anywhere ? If so then it wouldnt need the third axle driven. I have noticed that the front stub-axles have got drilling as if for a Constant Velocity Joint so has made me wonder about it . Must go and earn some pennies now. Thank you HJ and Rich for your contributions. Woody 50.
