Made some log runs this week. Max power according to the VDash was 290 hp, at 6.986 rpm, 217.7 kpa, A/F 11.8, ignition 16.5, pump gas.
Leaned out the mixture at the fuel sites below 5,000 rpm. Way to rich over here. Reduced some timing too here: occasional knock detected by the Link knock detector.
All temps are nice and steady.

Fired her up today, with the Autronic CDI 500 R. The wiring is a mess now, but she did start right away. Happy me .. :)
Now I have to reinstall all the stuff I removed, clean the mess, and I am finished. So goodbye distributor.
Actually it was pretty easy, but sure I was very nervous with the first start up...
Pics are coming up.

At the moment, the tacho is not working. Since the CDI is positive triggered, in stead of negative, like stock Toyota. The tacho needs an tacho adapter, to change the positive trigger in to an negative. I recieved an nice diagram from Ray Hall. Just waiting for the parts and time to assemble this adapter.... it is nowhere for sale, so I need to make one my own. As soon as it works, I will put this online.

Got my first error code during engine running to. I am afraid that the Bosch coil is too close to the distributor, where the signals are coming from, so these two are disturbing each other. Never had trouble before the CDI.
* sigh * more work to do.... :)
