  1. Hi, I believe the search term is a "coupling nut". It's like a threaded spacer.
  2. High-side switching is the preferred mode for the reasons Toby mentioned. While it is also true that low side switching with FET's is less expensive, the benefits of high-side are worth it. In a crash, you lower the risk of a hot wire touching the chassis. If you google "high-side switching in automotive electronics", you'll find some really nice explanations. Manufacturers like Infineon have excellent app notes on the subject.
  3. Hi, I'm looking to have a couple of templates cut for a 2002 project and I was wondering if any FAQ members offered such a service. I know Polulu is a pretty good outfit to have this done but I'd prefer to keep it within the family, if possible. Thanks!
  4. Well, it's the 2002, not the 2020. Otherwise, there would have been hindsight 🙂 I realize you have (had) a 1600 but I couldn't resist.
  5. Slavs, I would try disconnecting the voltage regulator altogether. Since the 90-amp alternator you have there has an internal regulator, the output goes directly to the battery. It is possible that the regulator is seeing the excessive voltage and simply opening up internally. Since there is nothing for it to control, nothing happens. However, there may be some unintended consequences with it being plugged in. For example, when I swapped my alternator for one from an e30 318i (90 amp as well), I unplugged the regulator and left the connector dangling. I also connected the excitation voltage wire at the alternator. That's it, it all worked.
  6. Sounds like the tach is grounding the ignition coil. Can you check for a short with an ohmmeter?
  7. I had to look that up! I prefer The Milagro Beanfield War 😁
  8. Diode = check valve Inductor = water wheel connected to a flywheel That inductor analogy takes some mind-bending 🙂
  9. Healey,


    I can be pretty flexible, just need to plan around zoom meetings here and there.  If easier to text, I am at 650.218.2447.

    Thursday afternoon is currently open for me.



  10. I'm in Fremont, so not too far. Please PM me and we'll set something up!
  11. Hi, I use the WN high-flow radiator and it is excellent. I'm in the Bay Area as well so you are welcome to come by and take a look at it to judge the fit, aesthetics, etc. I'll stay six feet away from you while you look 😁
  12. Jason, Does the NIssan labeling mean it provides a 9 second squirt at 19.5 C? That's a lot more than the stock tii, per the graph.
  13. Hi Jason, Good info! Have you characterized the time/temperature curve for the switch, by chance? If the system injects a one second pulse each time, regardless of temperature, does that cause flooding issues? Would it be better not to fire that pulse? Thanks.
  14. Thanks for the link. One could make an equivalent device with a plain NTC temperature sensor and some very simple electronics. If this thing is truly NLA, I'd be glad to help design something suitable.
  15. What exactly does it do? Does it open or close a measured time after a specific temperature has been reached?
