    The Digifizz cluster..

    I'm sure there used to be some wiring diagrams in here somewhere. If you can't find them, i have a paper diagram, i will try and get it scanned and post it up.

    The Digifizz cluster..

    Any pics? Might make it easier to diagnose. I have some clocks that might be able to compare against?

    Cylinder head

    It is a standard G60 head, as mentioned the ports are slightly bigger on the 'p' head, they are apparently preferable over the 'a' head. The head on the rallye 1H engine is a different thing to either of these, they have larger holes through for the larger head bolts on the 1H engine. There was a post about it in here a few years ago

    G60 head porting- where to go?

    So, I want some cylinder head work doing on my rallye engine, spent hours looking round the tinterwebz and am now more confused than ever as to who to go to. I want a good porting/flowing job doing, three angle valve seats new guides etc.. Dont want to spend thousands. Are the cnc heads worth the cost? After recommendations please people!

    G60 rebuild- where to get parts from?

    So, I melted my pistons in my rallye. I am going to rebuild the engine, bores are poor, so I figured that I might as well bore out to 1.9 The 1H engine standard bore is 80.6mm, I am thinking of going to 82.5 or 83mm using something like the wossner pistons Does anyone have any recommendations on where to get all parts? Pistons, gasket sets etc? Are the standard rods ok? Not building an all out race engine, just a bit more poke. Does anyone still do a '1.9 rebore kit' with all parts included? Head. Any recommendations for a who does a decent porting job? Bottom end balancing? Crank, flywheel etc? who to talk to? I am a competent engine builder, having built many engines over the years, so I plan to do the actual building work myself. Any info much appreciated!

    G60 rebuild- where to get parts from?

    Cheers, had seen them, but I am going full rebuild and boring out to 1.9 now so won't be needing standard anymore!

    BBS RM002

    Pretty sure width is measured from the inside to the inside of the beads, so that would make that wheel a 6.5" Probably a 195 tyre would suit?

    Problems with Schrick rocker cover?

    So, I guess this proves the leakdown test results... No. 2 showed as 50-60% leakage.. slightly melted.. No. 3 showed as 10-20% leakage, in good order.. No. 4 showed as 95-100% leakage, melted to buggery.. And No. 1 showed as 70-80% leakage, pretty melted too.. Guess its a rebuild then!

    Problems with Schrick rocker cover?

    Now then. Has anyone had problems with a schrick rocker cover on a G60? I recently fitted one to my rallye, just been for a 'spirited' drive today, it started sounding rough, plumes of blue smoke from the exhaust... pulled over, oil everywhere, found to be coming from the throttle body boost return, all boost hoses full of oil. First thought was charger oil seals failed (had that before!) Topped oil back up, nursed it 15 miles or so home, smoke/oil seemed to be clearing.. oil level still the same when I got home.. hmm So i started looking into it, I have the breather going back to charger, this was full of oil. Removed the breather off the rocker cover and held it at high revs, after about 30 seconds oil started spitting out of the breather on the schrick cover? I am under the impression now that the charger is fine, and oil is coming down the breather at high revs into the charger. Never had that problem with the standard cover? Anyone else had this problem with a schrick rocker cover?

    Long shot, but I don't suppose you still have these pistons?

    Problems with Schrick rocker cover?

    Ran a leakdown test today, suspicions pretty much confirmed. pic of cylinder leakage results..

    Problems with Schrick rocker cover?

    So, to follow this up it does seem to be breathing a bit heavy, I put the original rocker cover on and all good.. for a bit. Gave it a blast down the motorway all of a sudden same again, spat all its oil out of the breather.. and engine sounding dog rough too.. crap. Managed to crawl the 5 miles home, using 10 litres of oil in the process.. ha. Now breathing much worse, running pretty much on 3 cylinders. Pulled the plugs, bits of melted aluminium on plug four.. I now suspect its melted piston four, causing blowby and excessive breathing, pushing oil up into the rocker cover. So to concur, probably not problem with the schrick cover, just a melted piston!

    impressive work there. I like the bov conversion, how is it controlled? What opens and closes it?

    1.9PD 100 - Oil in the fuel!

    Google PD tandem pump failure, quite common apparently. Doesn't look to difficult to replace.

    G60 O2 Sensor

    My rallye failed on emissions, I think due to lambda being duff. I unplugged it, as far as I'm aware it then uses a base map, not closed loop. I then set mixture using the co pot, sailed through then.

    Reproduction rallye sills

    Has anyone seen these? Looks very interesting to me!   http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/141202458831

    Door seal glue, which one?

    I thought the rubber door seals just pushed on, no glue required? Or am I thinking of the wrong part?

    Is this an eight valve? I have a Kent Cams GS3 sat in the garage, 300 degree duration.   http://www.kentcams.com/product-details/195/Camshaft/Camshaft/GS3-competition/

    rallye ecu part number?

    ^^ Bugger, I just paid 250 euros for one from Germany, It didn't look as clean as that one either! Ah well. On another note, I unplugged the lambda sensor and adjusted the co pot and it sailed though the emissions test. The lambda must be shot. Still a pig to start though, blue temp sender does absolutely nothing to the running whether its plugged in or not.

    rallye ecu part number?

    Does anyone know the part number for a rallye ecu?   And next question, does anyone have one for sale?   Cheers!

    rallye ecu part number?

    Thanks for that, just need to find one now! I have problems with how my rallye is running, its very difficult to start from cold (takes 15-20 attempts before it will run), although once warm starts straight away and seems to have decent power. Its also just failed its mot on emissions being very high. I have replaced the blue temp sender (genuine one), isv and knock sensor. When unplugging the blue temp sender it makes no difference to the running whatsoever, I have checked the wiring to the ecu for continuity, all is good. Unplugging the lambda sensor makes no difference to the running either.

    tie rods articulation

    Are you sure they are not just tight/stiff with being new? They would have to be a ball joint, how else would you have the movement when the suspension goes up and down etc?
