Ign Timing

Update

We my suspicions about the ecu condition were correct ,
I have found and fitted a used ecu from a mercruiser v6 efi and it runs up nearly ok.
So need to get the original ecu repaired, we do have some repairs over here ,so will let them have a go .

Also I need to set the ignition timing , does anyone know the setting and is there a grounding wire for this ?

thanks

kevin

Is it worth me buying a Clymer manual for things like timing etc,
does it cover topics like this.

I bought one and it's handy to have. Regarding the ECU - I believe you will need the ECU programmer harness to program. CantRepeat has a good resource. I believe this is the place. http://www.azspeed-marine.com/mefi4becu.html - I am sure you can probably find someone in the EU.

Timing

Well I have found and bought a used ecu from the US at a great price , so she is now up and running ,also replaced the ISC as it had seized up .

Still need to check and reset the ign timing .



I have read about disconnecting the plug to the distributor and putting a timing shunt in , but as soon as i disconnect this the engine cuts out

Does anyone have the correct procedure for this .

Many thanks

Kevin

Engine check light

I found an old post re the ignition timing ,which shows shorting the A and B wires together on the diagnostic plug , also bring the idle up to 1000 , which gives you a base timing setting so I have adjusted to 10BTDC , this seamed to have worked .

My next question is re the engine check light , it does not illuminate , it appears that 1 side of the bulb is permanently grounded so I would expect the ecu to switch a poss feed to make it illuminate ? .

However the gearbox over heat light is also wired with a permanent ground , the switch is a ground switch , so the light cannot work , easy fix to swap the permanent side to a live .

Does anyone have a diagram of the warning light circuit , also should it illuminate when the ignition is turned on ?

Thanks

Kevin

Hi Kevin,
I found out this year on my 96 that the check engine light was never wired in! the light should come on when you put the ignition on and deluminate once it's running (or stay on if there's a fault).

There was a brown (brown-black?) wire at the back of the engine just above the gearbox that wasn't connected to anything and a white 2 pin plug/socket which didn't have anything coming out from one side (waterproofing bungs in both of the holes), I seem to remember it connected to the orange wire but I'd recommend you check first as the colours changed as I went through the wiring. I opened up the black cover thats fixed to the head at the rear and traced the wires from plug to plug. Connected it up and the light came on for what I suspect was for the first time in 17 years.
