I'm pretty sure you can just set up your MegaSquirt board with a second ignition driver and then dispense with the EDIS altogether. Less components to break/die. Simpler wiring. Simplicity. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

Thanks I'll look unto that. Didn't really want to go with COPs.



If you want the "easy button" for spark output look at VAG Part #032905106B wasted spark coil off late 90s/early 2000s VWs. Aftermarket/generic can be had for less than 20 bucks. Its logic level so no high current ignition drivers are needed, the wiring of it is crazy simple. Only thing you need to know is to swap the 3 and 4 plug wires from how they are labeled on the coil to account for the Type 4 firing order.

You've already put more work into EDIS than it would take to add a second driver -- and there's more work to make the EDIS function. Follow James recommended coil and you'll be done with ignition. With what's available now, I don't see why anyone should ever use EDIS.

Thanks, I ended up buying the VW unit above. $20 shipped brand new on Amazon, that route seems to be better method now.

Silly question, I need to buy or make an engine stand yoke/holder for my Type IV, if I make one does it matter which half of the case I mount to the engine stand to start the assembly?

I haven't worked with a MegaSquirt unit yet, so I haven't done a bunch of research on the nuance of adding ignition drivers. But with that coil you're only using a few milliamps to fire the coil, so you don't need beefy drivers. Essentially, any driver will work fine becuase the draw will be far below the safe rating. The BIP737 is something like 11A max. So that VW coil will be about 1% of that.

I always install the stand/yoke on the 3-4 (passenger) side of the engine case.

Finally, some work related to my 914...

Removed the main cylinder studs this morning.

Noticed one of the smaller studs is bent pretty good. Will have to source another one.

I plan to clean the engine case one more time, might be a little easier with the studs removed. The other side has a lot more oil caked onto it for some reason.

Cleaned my engine, also deburred it a little bit also by cleaning up the extra aluminum from the casting process. Not as sharp now.

Cleaned it using my pressure washer with media blaster attachment with baking soda.

In case it is not in Raby's Type IV assembly DVD I have not fully watched,

What do people use and recommend for installing the head/cylinder studs?

Mike, it's in there somewhere but IIRC it was Loctite PST 565 thread sealant. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

Actually I asked about it and a few weeks later someone sent me their old one anonymously.

I'd put a WTB in the classifieds.

Not sure if this qualifies for being cheap or resourceful. Lost a dowel pin and had a perfect sized HSS drill that I figured could be used. Drill still usable so no big deal.


Anyone using special engine break-in oil?

Dominic was nice enough to send me a straight engine stud and I got my 1.7 rockers with 911 adjusters.
