AFR Gauge help


Go to solution Solved by jimk,

Recommended Posts

I just finished installing my AFR Gauge 30-4110.  The Gauge works fine but I believe needs to be calibrated according per instruction.  I know how but I wouldn't know what to look for.  The Gauge is in default position P0 and shoes 14.5.  In case I need to calibrate do I disconnect the 02 sensor or leave it connected?

 

TIA

Typically, 'calibration' is done in free air, everything connected as

it will be when the car's running, but using atmosphere as the test gas.

 

But that procedure you show is just changing the behavior of the gauge, not  calibrating the gauge to the sensor.

 

If you're showing 14.5 with the engine not running, something's up with the sensor, the wiring (kinda unlikely) 

or the gauge.  

Me, I'd give AEM a call or a chat.

Bosch LSU 4.9 is calibrated at the factory and does not need any more calibration.

Bosch LSU 4.2 has the free air calibration. 

The data sheet is for when the controller is outputting a 0-5 V signal to an ECU.  The gauge needs no calibration.

A radiator shop is a good place to take a leak.

 

I have no idea what I'm doing but I know I'm really good at it.

Leave sensor connected.

Keep your free hand on something attached to the engine and you will feel (as you turn in the screw) when the mixture is leaner than best idle.  You may not be much leaner than what you see. on the gauge at best idle.

The white wire is feed to an ECU.  From the question about idle mixture, I understand that you are not using an ECU, so leave the white wire disconnected.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
