Re: Coil problems

Re: Coil problems

Has the distributor got points? If so then yes you have the wrong coil fitted and it’s probably fried the condensor and points.

Re: Which engine

The 16v is the better engine power wise. Has more bhp and torque throughout the Rev range. There’s a dyno graph comparison floating around on pirate4x4 somewhere.

Personally I’m never fitting another 8v after doing a few 16v conversions :brows:

Re: Dashboard lights staying on

That’s not the same as my brake master cylinder cap..... it’s been swapped to a vitara master cylinder, same cap as on later SJs/samurais.
Maybe that’s why I can’t find it :hahaha:

I’ll have a look on my Lwb samurai, see where it is on there, that has the same cap as my Vit MC

Re: Dashboard lights staying on

Also you don’t need the handbrake light to function for the MOT so just try to find the wire and blank off the end so it’s not earthing out. It runs through the sill on one side and comes out to run under a front seat to the handbrake.

Re: Dashboard lights staying on

The bottom light is your handbrake light, there’s a switch on the handbrake itself, the wire might just be earthing somewhere. Check your brake fluid level there’s a diode somewhere in then wiring (i have been trying to work out where it actually is for years but it seems to be hiding in the loom so...
