This is interesting. Everything I have read says run the 139 inverted.

I haven't gotten far enough to really bother with timing yet, but I know I was running with in one degree of what MS was showing. But was having some idle issues in general.

I may have to try this....

When I was messing around with getting spark ( I couldn't get the damn thing to fire... turned out to be fuel not spark ) I had messed with the 139 both inverted and not and when inverted the spark was HOT HOT HOT. But non-inverted seemed weak from what I could tell.

Glad you got it fixed, hopefully I start finding some luck soon.

Yeah changing firmware helped alot, but I could only find one firmware that it really liked. I kept getting odd resets and losing spark with the others randomly. It idles better with the spark inverted, but the timing would advance by itself outside of the table. It was knocking at like 3k rpm and 0* advance in the table.

i need to keep an eye out for the timing. And see if mine is going outside the range. You may be able to get a better idle by upping the Advance a bit, it may make up for the difference in inverted spark.

I'll try that, I knew mine was going outside of the range because when I set fixed angle to a value it wouldnt stay there when revved.

Well the fuel pump went out on it yesterday so I guess its time for a Bosch 044.

Also does anyone know if aeroquip stainless hose is ok to use with power steering? I'm making a pressure hose for my pump setup and I'm just wondering if I should just bite the bullet and get the special power steering hose and fittings vs. just regular AN stuff

I went to a hydraulic shop and had them make me a high pressure line using Aeroquip goods, Use steel fittings on the high pressure side,,, also a line with crimped fittings is usually necessary.

So...you're gonna help me MS my car this summer. Right? Right?

Oh-and I'll be home on Thursday or Friday. Just let me know when you need that fuel pump. I'll be going I-40W to I-85S if you're not gonna be in Charlotte.

Finally got a chance to work on this thing some today. The car cut off because it blew the power fuse for megasquirt, I tried to cycle the pump manually when it broke, but no dice and no spare fuses ftl. So it runs again. Also went to aeroquip this week and got my pressure line made, cost $40, I was expecting more. But that place is officially awesome, I couldnt imagine any more fittings and hoses in one store. Had to use some lowes line on the feed hose for now, but it should be ok for a while. The feed line doesnt see any pressure anyway. Im running a reservoir off of a BMW 5 series of some year I got at the pull a part. Steering feels good, responsive but a little more manual feel than the S70 has. I guess thats just to be expected with a racecar pump, but I like it. Also recently bought a set of heated power mirrors and started getting those in. I had to drill the doors because they mount differently than the -85 ones do, but no biggie. I made a cardboard template and had them drilled and installed in no time. I really like these things, my 84 power mirrors were in good shape but they just weren't clear enough. Also the early pass side mirror isnt scaled so its annoying on the highway. Overall just a little more bling factor and another switch to show off on the dash . Anyway enough talk, pics:

Fuel pump looks to be good! Pulled the feed line off and dug about 2" of mud out of it and the feed side of the pump . Plugged it all back up and there is more pressure than could ever be asked for, ~6 bar when the regulator was pinched.

I used that exact same power steering hose (garden hose) on my first 244 for years, never had a problem, always got funny looks and comments at meets.

So I was thinking of getting a set of fixed backs for this thing, but its not going to be a race car. Too cool to molest that way in my opinion, Ill save that fate for a poor 244 or something. I saw these and they look nice...

opinions?

Corbeaus are hot, and they make a Volvo-specific bracket-I've been thinking about going that route with my 244 when I get a little cash flow. Go for it, I say.

I have heard they aren't so comfortable. Never sat in them myself though. I love my 03 WRX seats.

Correct me if I am wrong but I don't think they make the GTSII anymore. They are what I was thinking about getting but I couldn't find em so I went with a set of old Recaros and get them recovered.
