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?

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.

      I've had my Massimo 500 for about a month. So far I'm really happy with it and until today haven't had any issues . When It was delivered, the fuel gauge had one bar so I put a couple of gallons in to get me going. Still showed one bar on gauge but I figured not enough to register. Today I thought that I'd add a 5 gal can to top off. Well, I learned that the gauge wasn't working when, you guesssed it, the tank overflowed after a couple of gallons in. Still only one bar on gauge.
      I could probably figure this out by starting with the basics (checking wires , the sending unit , etc. ) but before I got a-rippin and a-tearin , I thought I might save some time and I'd check and see if anyone had already had  this problem and what the fix was.  This is a 2007 with the electronic dash. Everything else seems to work . Any help would be appreciated .

      Hello fellow hisun owners, I'm new to the Forum just wanted to ask a question about my hisun 800, I currently need to replace the crankshaft position sensor but due to my location I'm looking at almost two months before I see one, I was just curious if anybody knows of another brand that use the same crankshaft position sensor for the hisun 800 motor. Like Polaris, Yamaha, Suzuki, or even automotive. Thanks.

      HELP - my wife and i just bought a 2013 joyner trooper 1100 and we rode for 2 evenings with no problems. Went to ride last night and all of a sudden it acted like something was catching up and it didn't want to move easily. Whatever it was must've broke and now it moves with no problem but is making a rubbing/grinding noise somewhere in the backend. Could it be wheel bearing, differential, or something in cv shaft. Any info or similar experiences is appreciated.

      Soo for my second problem lol, 2009 trooper 1100 5 speed , will not engage 5th gear , all others work fine but seems like 5th doesn't engage completely and wont grab the gear. Any idea on where to start looking for issues, or what to look for in regards to linkage.
