Has anyone on OS ever had this issue (a car that won't turn off) before? Usually it's the other way round, hahs

I have when running an L series alternator on an A series car.  It didn't charge either.

Lol I too had this problem when I got my 2j running in crown.  Wasn't sure if it was my wiring or something back charging,  but a relay wired into the injector power feed fixed it.

 

Good job. Bet goat got nothing done on his cars lol

He moved the other tang and put oil in the van. 

I found the remnants of a bag of weed in the glove box too, I found a farm rego label in the glovebox from 2010

Yeah they ideally need a proper clean & test. When I get it to Auckland I'll pull then out again 

Of scans of wiring diagrams would be great please and thank you 

I got a picture of the radio for you too

I did a bit of engine bay cleaning of the S5 in the downtime.
But it was actually really fun getting this going. Super glad it actually ran (not that i didn't think it would)
Cherry on top was getting it drivable and doing some skids. Jeah.

Don't tempt me. 

I'd like to but realistically it needs a birthday and lots of stuff double checked and/or replaced. No point in breaking stuff imo

It looks so lush. I was very tempted by this myself but.... no spare coin. Maybe one day.. but by then they will finaaly be hit with Mazda tax and out of reach..

Anyway- I have this that I'd bought in the UK at some random swap meet. Might be of help!

I want to keep it but totally happy to post it up to you. You use it/copy it and when finished post it back. PM me your address.

Oh awesome thanks heaps! Pm incoming. 

I can't really afford it but it when else will I get a chance to own a rotary. 

It's pretty cool working on it, everything mechanical is pretty easy to get to, wiring is typical 80s/early 90s hard to reach but it's not horrible. The alloy control arms are lush too. I think it's all a novelty a because rotary and b because I'm used to playing with 'lower' end of the market vehicles or commercial spec

The fuel cut defender is a work around for the leaning out issue you talked about. It simply lies to the ecu to stop it leaning out at high boost/revs. It's not perfect but cheaper than a whole new ECU system. They are mainly used when you wind up the factory boost but don't upgrade the ECU.

 

Do you want the fuel cut defender out of my car? I'm going to install a Link in mine so won't need it. It's a simple plug and play!
