Yes, as far as I can see in the schematics.

There is no reason why you can't add it at all.

I Have power mirrors, and no BEM in my car.

Well on the weekend I replaced the spark plugs trying to chase the reason why it wouldn't start... the old ones were pretty grubby and a little corroded but I'm not sure that it was enough to hinder it at least spluttering cough starting, so they didn't hurt.

Anyway at this time I didn't have a charged battery (cranking my engine too much and also the glovebox light when I left it open accidentally) so after borrowing my brothers charger I charged it up and it was ready to go this afternoon.

I put in my freshly charged battery cranked it over AND!! it didn't start... bugger... anywho, I pulled out plug lead no 1 and pushed the lead onto one of the old spark plugs and had my brother crank the engine, I've got spark so at least I know the dizzy works and the wiring works.

I'm thinking that it could be one of a few things.

A) The timing is way out
B) Theres not much fuel in it according to the gauge, it might be pumping vapour.
C) The fuel pump might be buggered, after all the fuel pump relay was.
D) The fuel thats in it has to be fairly old, it may have lost enough octane to not be very combustable.

ANYWHO.
In conclusion I didn't think about the fuel... if when I put some in tomorrow it fires then I'll be certain to be slightly peeved :p

A. set the crank at TDC cylinder 1 compression stroke, check that cam mark is at 3o'clock (dizzy can olso be 180 degrees out

B. put fuel in it (best way to f**k a pump is to not have fuel)

C. can u hear the pump when u turn key to "on"? if not give it a whack whilst cranking (it often works)

D. umm... yeah

The car went down to my brothers mate's workshop today, he's going to take a look at it for me so heres hoping its the timing.

Fuel didn't help.

Fuel pump clicks on fine.

Its true! When fuel goes 'off' it gums up fuel lines and injectors.

That is excellent news mate.

Well done. You should be proud of the achievment. Not many would have taken a project that was that messed up as a start point.

Well Done!!!!!!!!

Need Pics.

So just had a chat with my brothers mate who's working on it for me...

ARGH!
Apparently the thermos are rooted.. direct power and they don't work.

*ahem*

By the way, the whole reason why the thing wasn't starting was the mechanic at autoleaders put the fuel lines around the wrong way. Rang them up and Jason (another brothers mate who works at autoleaders) blew up at the mechanic that did the work for not checking the orientation of the lines.

So, the saga continues.
