Hmm don't remember seeing anything like that, does it matter that mine was a distributorless setup(1.8 cvh R6A)?

Your probably right on that, can't say i have ever paid a vast amount of attention to the 1.6CVH setup.

Do you have the coilpack?

That fitting may well be superfluous on that car, I think it's part of the body loom and not the engine loom so would be present regardless of engine.

Coilpack will get it's +12V from the engine loom.

Ya I've got a coilpack. Pretty sure the part in question was connected to something though as I labeled & numbered it but now can't find the corresponding number on my pile of bits If it is superfluous, any idea what else I won't have connected to be able to turn the engine on?

It may feed the coilpack, if so there would be a matching plug in the loom.

Are you still using the CFi? if so you will need the ECU and all the sensors connected. The engine loom is standalone from the main body loom, connecting via 3 plugs 4,6,8 pin behind the battery.

No I've ditched the CFi and put bike carbs on as the CFi manifold didn't fit very well. I was under the impression I could ditch everything connecting into the CFi manifold except the fan switch and coolant temp sender for the dash? Was planning on posting those connections as well though mind you once I worked out the alternator side connections.

use that wire to feed the Megajolt +12v Ignition supply and Coilpack +12V Ignition supply.


I have just bought a set of ZX6 carbs for a bit of a play, but I should be able to retain the 1.8 Ignition system.

True, as long as you have a megajolt ecu connected to your edis

Initially you can run on the edis alone at fixed timing to get it running though and check everything works

So will it be possible to start the engine without the megajolt or original ecu and just the edis?

Do you have an EDIS module as well as the coilpack? Not suer if the cfi has the EDIS embedded in the ECU.

Yup I've got an EDIS connected onto the loom (just sitting on a top rail at the moment) and a coilpack bolted onto the block and connected as well. I was hoping to be able to start it in limp home mode without the original ecu or the megajolt connected. But when I turn the ignition nothing happens at the moment and the dash lights don't come on. The dash does have power though as mine was a low spec and had a clock instead of rev counter and this ticks round.
