Here is another member who did the conversion in their EL I believe. The colours vary between MAD and Falcon96XR6.

4 wire plug is your reverse and neutral switch wires, 2 for reverse, 2 for neutral. Take a guess with them until you get reverse lights.

Then for the wires for the resistors, youll have to have a look at your colours.

Theyre in the round plug,

My colours were, 1.2k resistor beteen Yellow&black, white stripe.
And the 6.8k beteen Purple, light green stripe & black, white stripe.
4 wires total.

Yours may differ..

Thanks Phong, things changed this morning after I posted, managing to pick up an EL manual ECU- so now I assume I can forget about the round white plug, and sort through the others.

These cross over models are a right pain, needed the AU Manual to do the valve timing........

Cheers

yes, I noticed when I did my EL that the colour codes for the wiring didn't match any of the ones I found online. (loom was EL fairmont ghia.) in the end I ignored the colours and just followed the pins on the ECU and put them in based on the pins needed.

And as an aside, I'm reglueing the engine to stop some leaks. The front reassembled without drama, turned it over to insert the new mains and bigs I'd waited nearly 2 days to get, only to find 144-250 ci bearings are somewhat different........

Btw, there is a plug on the auto loom that looks like an injector plug- what's that one for?

Cheers

Reverse switch I think. It's been a long time since the last time I have touched it!

Now the car won't start.

1 and 6 have no compression- all the others are 180 cold.

Have a feeling that when attempting to time it using the old EL specs, I've bent a couple of valves- pretty peed off as none of the turning was aggressive. Turned over perfectly with the AU timing.

Anybody else had this happen?

Cheers

Here we are, 4 weeks into an at most 4 day part time job.

The T5 went in fine. I had another 96DA head, lapped the valves and that has gone on.

Looks like a real motor again. I would have thought last time it should have run on 2,3,4 and 5, albeit roughly- I had fuel and spark.

I didn't expect it to run, and sure enough it didn't- appears not to be fueling.

Tried to fit my 'manual EL ECU' only to find it has 4 rows of skinny pins, as opposed to the current 3 rows of fat pins- so no help there.

I'm at my wit's end with this- apart from donating it to the tank warfare range, does anybody have any ideas? Please bear in mind this car has, and may have other, hybrid AU parts......

Cheers(?)
