Thanks for the reply.
Those manuals are like hens teeth. My buddy who is insisting on this engine is grinding away at the internet daily, and we may just have an option or two with existing ECM's that can be re mapped. That now seems to be the biggest mission, to find someone who is willing to "play" with it.
I also had a problem with the tach, and am presently running without it. The sensor off the import (japanese) motor is not the same as the one our local trucks came with, so the guy that did the first swop, butchered my tach meter circuit to make it work, but like you, it gives rubbish readings and is not worth much.
My hydraulic lock was easy fix and relatively cheap. The insurance had written the vehicle off, so I took the max cash O could get out of them, did a heart transplant with injector and pump refurbish with less that half the money. I had no conversions to do, it was a straight pull old one out, and push the new one in. It took me just over a week to work around some of the stupid things the previous guy had done. Wish I had the original engine that came with the car, as I could have taken off some of the sensors (tach) that would have got me back to everything working as it should.
But that was in April 2008, and the motor is still going well with 130K kilometres that I have put on it. That on top of me experimenting with LPG and HHO on the motor on and off.
Future, I want to install a water to air intercooler, water/petrol charge injection cooling, surge tank on the fuel line, HHO injection and a fuel heater so that I can start playing with oil recycling to use as a fuel source.
But money is a major problem after I lost my business 2 years ago and seem to be totally unemployable.
