Plumb up the brakes do the loom then bodywork that way you won't damage your panels while doing the above..is that a tad further than you got before? if so "carry on and keep at it"

yep never got the old one rolling, I might tinker with a few small things like brake lines and other small jobs whilst I try and save up some cash for the bodywork

Default She cranks

I gave my build a bit of rest after the big push to get her rolling.

This month though I decided I start to get the engine running.
First up getting the starter circuit sorted.
First up was a battery, I managed to pick up a brand new oddessey PC545 fom a fellow builder for a really good price. Its a very small battery but seems to crank the engine just great

I only did a basic circuit for the starter, + to starter neg to engine, and a flying lead to the solenoid plus saw her cranking over.

I connected an old indicator to the oil pressure swith and to the positive on the battery but his didn't go out during cranking.
I have absolutely nothing else on the engine, theres a large breather at the back drivers side, I blocked that off but still no light out, any other tips as I'm confident it either the a faulty sender or its loosing its pressure somewhere rather than a dodgey oil pump pick up?

I've also ordered a fiesta coil pack with HT leads for a grand total of £4.99 this should connect up to the edis module stanalone to give a basic spark to get her running.

All thats needed now is some carb and an inlet (i might try her on the old sierra carb as as starter for ten)

Mike,

I had a simiilar problem with my 1.6 cvh. Oil pressure switch was working fine. I took the sump off injected oil straight into the pump.

No matter how long I cranked it for it would not turn the oil pressure light off. I looked on one of the ford forums and apparently it is a common thing on the 1.6 cvh.

In the end I just started it and it went out within a few seconds.

Mine wouldn't go out either with hand cranking or when the engine was spinning from the starter but not starting up. Once I got it running though the light went out after 5-10 seconds.

I had a go a wiring up a simple ignition circuit for my CVH just using the EDIS module and coil pack

IMAG0307 by mjb22001, on Flickr


edis4 by mjb22001, on Flickr

I did get a spark when cranking the engine over but it seemed a little weak.
So i wondered if I had it wired correctly.
The black wire is the positive feed to the coil pack and edis.
I didnt' have the 25uf suppression to ground fitted as I dont' have whatever a 25uf looks like
Also I wasn't 100% sure on the terminals 1 and 3 on the coil pack

The leads and plugs are fairly old also.
Any thoughts

The ht leads dont fit the cvh head so I wandered what any ones anyone have used?

Also what spark plugs? as apparantly this can have an effect when swapping to EDIS

I ran my cvh on megajolt and used standard cvh plugs with no probs

I think i used fiesta leads or ford ka, just went to local motor factors and looked at a few ford sets from around the coilpack era until i found some

The Radio Supressor should nto make any difference on starting, it's often even ommited from the ford diagrams.
