Unusual timing problem

Recommended Posts

Trooper started running real poor. Would run real rich until I gave it gas then it would flood indicated by the oxygen sensor jumping to very lean, 20:1. When it floods, it stops burning the fuel so the oxygen is left over, but not because it is lean. Wouldn't hardly go. could idle but had no power what so ever. Figured I messed up my tune so played with it for a few days. I could get it to rum better but never good. Then I thought I damaged the engine so I checked compression, All 4 cylinders were at 135+-1 pound, not a problem. Remember I have lowered my compression for the supercharger so this was just right. Surprised they were so identical. Then rechecked timing with a light, perfect. Checked for input from all the sensors, no problem. Pulled the head cover to check if the timing belt slipped a cog, nope. Made sure all the valves had the proper clearance, fine. Checked my fuel pump for proper pressure and volume, OK. Scratched my head a lot and went back and read the Megasquirt manuals for about the 10th time. Then I went back to square one and set number 1 cylinder to top dead center to start over rechecking valve position and timing. Now timing showed being off by 30 degrees advanced. But the timing light showed it right on. Then it dawned on me, the 36-1 Edis timing wheel has moved. But how, it's weld on to the supercharger drive pulley which is tightly pressed onto the alternator stock drive pully. The stock drive pulley is the engines harmonic balancer so it has a rubber cushion molded in between the inner part connected to the crank and the outer drive pulley part. The outer portion was slowly slipping on the inner part gradually changing my timing but because the timing, the computer sees, is based on the placement of the missing tooth, it showed and checked correct. I omitted the rubber and welded it solid in the correct relationship to the engine and it all runs great now. That took about a week and was hard to find but finally it’s corrected.

Did you take any photos, is the 36-1 Edis timing wheel the wheel that drives the alternator and water pump or is it something to do with your super charger and something the rest of us don't need to worry about.

Is it in this picture? Possibly, is it on the left side? 2943355750104110397ldGieM_th.jpg What timing is it effecting, spark timing, or injection timing and where is the timing signal coming from? I'm assuming the MegSquirt has it's own timing signal coming from the 36-1 Edis timing wheel. I'll ask more later.

It's nothing you guys need to worry about. I mention it only because you can sort of see the process I went through to find a problem. The Edis 36-1 timing wheel is something I added to provide a timing signal for the megasquirt. What caused the problem has got to be about as rare as it gets. Sorry Rocmoc, don't use a lot of RPMs anymore, but I still wondered for a while if I damaged my engine. I have my RPM limit set at 5500 in the computer. Torque is good.

What computer are you running?

MegasquirtIII with the MS3X board for sequential injection and sequential individual ignition control. Real happy with it and very versatile.

    • 2009 Joyner trooper starting problems

      I have a no cranking issue with my joyner. It has a chery 1100. It will click but nothing after that.  New battery. I tried banging in the starter while holding key in start(old car trick). Now the  starter solenoid won't even clunk. Just hear s click fron the relay now.  My assumption is the starter needs replacing.  Any ideas of other things to check? Does anyone have diese block diagrams?  Got no clue what fuse or relay goes to what

    • Trooper 1100 Turbo Kit?

      Hey guys, so i have built my own turbo kit in house and it works awesome! seeing these turbo kits for sale for 3 and 4k seemed a little steep for me.. i built my entire kit intercooled and all for less then half of that price so i am considering selling these kits.. if i could produce a complete bolt on kit that could be installed with simple hand tools in your garage strait for $1800 and intercooled for $2500 would any of you be inerested? i would like to post pics but not sure how to? i have also snorkled my trooper and not just the air filter but diff vents, the two chrome catch cans (crankcase vent and radiator vent) along with raising the ECM and fuse boxes to head level.. this as well could be sold as a kitfor very little cost. i can also do the work in-house if needed (install all of this for you) for only a couple of hundred... is this stuff you guys would be interested in? Turbo kits will be complete al the way down to an Autometer Vac/Boost guage, fuel controller etc.... i have seen a HUGE increse in power! if you have more questions you can call me at 713-824-8891 i'm in the Houston Texas area. Also Lenny would you mind calling me so i could pic your brain for a min? some questions about this site (how to post pics, stetting up my profile etc.) as well as a few other things. Thanks i love this forum and really look foward to helping in the future! and really like seeing extreme joyners on the trail!

    • Trooper computer programmer

      There is a company I ran across at the CES trade show this year. They make a programmer that should be able to program the Troopers computer. About $300. The Trooper s computer is a standard Bosch car computer. The only differance is that it is programed for the Trooper. The programmer will program most any car or truck so it should work. The company could probably help is finding which program the computer uses and assist finding out which computer pins to hook to. This programmer will program all aspects of the tuning including things like Pulse width tables, VE tables, Timing tables, prime pulse width, crank pulse width, after start pulse width, warmup pulse width, enrichment pulse widths, acceleration pulse widths. rev limit and more.

    • Wanted: Trooper Axle Parts

      I am interested in any old trooper axle parts you may have lying around. Please let me know if your want to sell them.  Backstory: Hey everyone. Last trip out to moab I climbed a wall on poison spyder Mesa while 2 rzr xp1000's and three can am x3 xrc's watched me and didn't dare try. After doing it once I pulled around to show them it wasn't a fluke. One on the can am x3 xrc drivers just looked at me and said "that's steep". On the second try I spread the bell on the left rear axle. I made the climb but now the inner cage slips inside making a loud popping noise as twisting the boot. I mainly just need the inner bell but I am interested in anything you have.
