Sure have, I need a rev counter and a lambda air fuel ratio gauge!!

My red one is going to end up pretty pimp Razz

The only issue with the rev counter on the 1.3 hijet is there are 2 coil packs, so it will only read half the sparks. So I'll have to build some kind of diode network to bring both signals together.

You have simply to use a two cyl. tacho.

Not all the two cylinder engine has equally spaced combustion strokes, i.e. a 2cyl V 90°like the Ducati or others like the hondas V-Twin (60° V if I'm not wrong...).

Then they have the two sparks not equally spaced during the engine revolution, and tachos reads those signals without any problem.

However, if your tacho reads a negative signal like mine, I think there aren't problems connecting the negative wire of the coils togheter, if the power circuit works on the positive.

However, another suggestion.
I don't know precisely how it works on the 1.3, but I think the system gives every cylinder a spark at everyone top dead center (one fires the air-fuel mix, an another spark is "throwed away" during the end of the exhaust stroke).
In italy we call this system "scintilla persa" (lost spark), some fiats works with it.
In this case, simply connecting the tacho to the negative of one coil and setting it to read signal from two cylinder engine does the work.

Here you go, improve your english tech language skills:-

We call it "Wasted Spark"

But good information about the rev counters, might look for a 2 cylinder one.

Thank you!

You can find some tachos useable on engines with different number of cylinder.
Mine, for example, works with 3-4-6cyl. engine, but is more common to find ones for 2-4-6 on e-bay.
My model is built in two different version, CLICK here.

Today I connect my GPS to the PC and I tried to use the saved track files.
I recorded a downhill from the Scanuppia Mountain.
If you have google earth installed, you can see the gradient (not very precise) clicking here.

I think it can be interesting, I'm used to the slopes and the mountain roads, in the last days when I wrote of my mountain trips, for curiosity I take a look on the web for the highest mountain in UK, the Ben Nevis, is high 1344m...
Not to do a challenge, only to have an idea...
Looking at this track i had an idea of what is the difference between my zone and uk (I never been there)...

My home is at an altitude of 212m, the end of the "street" is at 1528, 1316m of difference in level...not far from the altitude of the ben nevis...
The top of the Scanuppia is 2150m, and we think that's a low mountain.

It is funny, but I can't imagine to live in a place without high mountains all around... Very Happy

I know what your saying, as an avid skiier I find coming back home so flat and dull, but the walk home to the pub is a lot less exercise! The last ski holiday I went, the walk home was about 2 kilometres, but it must have been a 500 metre altitude difference. Oh my god you sleep when you get home. We english are used to thick air too, up there is no oxygen.

To call Ben Nevis a mountain is pushing the definition, really it's just a big hill.

Have you received my PM last week?

However I'm not a sportsman, but sometimes we decide to start to do a walk on mountains.

In this summer we do some walk (we want to go to the sea, but we haven't money...so it's less costly to walk on mountain), we start from the 1000m of the pejo valley and we walk up to the Larcher refuge (2608m), then we return to pejo on a path that pass beside marmotte lake(2710m) and the bigger caresèr lake (2606m).
What beautiful place!Have you received my PM last week?

yeah both pm's, I've just sent them to you, and the opportunity of sleeping in your castle would be pretty handy except I couldn't find any cheap flights that land near you.

Thank you, tell me if you want some money for it...there's no problem.

You can land in some airports near here, there are trains and other public transport.

I don't know where you can arrive, but there are some airports near here, ryanair flights arrive to Orio al Serio from Manchester.


Then you can try to find a bus to the train station, or I can come and get you (maybe with the stilo of my parents)

Maybe some flights land to Venice airport.
From venice there are a little train coming in my region.

A friend of mine have to carry down the scanuppia mountain some other wood trunk of european black pine.
We have lots of this trees because of the ignorance of alpine nature of the politicos of the fascist regime (there aren't any black pine here before fascism, they plant it everywhere in the alps only because this trees has a fast grow).
Now the administration of the province decided to eliminate it because it haven't any possibility of replicate themselves (wrong trees on wrong soil at wrong altitude...probabily they say "me ne frego" -I don't care- as mussolini says all the time).

But I speaking of wood collection, not of our shitty history...

They have to reach a bad place in the bush, and their tractor is bigger than the path that rangers have opened.
Thus i must help us to drag the trunks in a better place, with the porter... Very Happy

And it arrives where tractor can't. Razz

Sounds like your starting to really love the flexibility of your 4x4 hijet. They really are the ultimate in compromised practical motoring.

Next you'll have to buy some serious off road / winter tyres with spikes and or scoops Wink

Some like theses http://www.allterraintyres.co.uk/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1425_1132_1208&products_id=1324

The only one issue for offroad use, excluding the fact that it have too hard suspension and small height from ground, is that I can't find any LSD diff. for mine...

In april, when I search for tires, I watch for "hard treaded" one in my size, i found these, the measure is right, but it isn't reinforced, or, better, they are remolded only on reinforced tire, but not marked as "C".
I can mount only 155R12C.
Then I can't use legally in italy. Suspect

If not, say me.
If you want I can watch for a low price express courier, then I can receive from Vergom the tires, then I ship it to you.

I am not a swindler, if you trust me, I'm here to help you. Very Happy

I had done a similar thing for a man who searching Honda XL parts, I shipped to him in Holland, in 2009 I think.

There are three types of rubber compound for it.
Summer, winter or the one they call "green diamond".CLICK

In may the normal one costs 47€ each, the winter ones costs 50€ and the green diamond costs 60€.

I don't know if prices was higher now, but it can be because winter arrives and that is a winter tire... Very Happy

This pic is of the original uniroyal one (Uniroyal Rallye MSE plus).

Vergom makes retread tires, the tread is the same (as usual big companies sell to retreaders the old molds), but the sidewalls are all black without designs, it have only written brand (Vergom), the size, the indication M + S and the minimum thickness of the tread to be considered snow tires (4mm).

Keep in mind that even those with summer compound are very soft, and that the tread is very spaced, then in the curves they increases the drift compared to summer tires.
They are also quite noisy, especially on wet roads.

Initially I thought of keeping it fitted as "four-seasons" tires, I put them at the end of May and I took them off, because of the rapid wear and inconveniences of road use, in July.

Those days I worked, and last two fridays were snowy Very Happy
It falls about 3cm on the 7th and 20 in the 14th, I tried to find a way to became blocked by snow with my van, but it seems to be impossible...
With over 30cm where wind has made higher deposits the sump guard touch the snow, but Porter can't be stopped... Very Happy

At now, snow turned into a thick layer of ice, yesterday it's raining all the day with below zero °C air temperature...
I returned just now from a "test" on ice.(officially I gone to buy tobacco Very Happy)

It is not "glossy" ice, it's frozen snow but it's hard!
Driving on a surface of that ice when other cars have moved it before it frozen it's like running on stones Very Happy

On streets the melting snow turned into glossy ice in last hours, there are some trucks with sand spreader around the valley Very Happy

Unfortunately friday I haven't my camera with me...It starts snowing at midnight and it never stop in all the day, when I exit my job at 4:30pm we have all the streets covered by snow, and urban streets was never cleaned because the province have reduced the budget for cleaning the streets because of the crisis...also we must drive cars from october to march with winter tires fitted (or snowchains mounted if needed), then this is a motivation to say to people "we can avoid to clean streets, because you must have the equipment for driving in snowy weather".

For me it isn't a problem, for my girlfriend and my parents too, I mounted four nokian W+ on the Stilo and four remolded "insa turbo winter grip" on the Corsa...

Precisely, I'm happy to drive on snow instead on "cleaned" streets, snowplow leaves a layer of ice on the road when the tarmac isn't perfectly flat, and I think that it is more dangerous than snow.

This is my garden after a day of freezing rain Very Happy
