Re: Megasquirt MS3X KA24DE wont start

You can command the fuel pump on/off in the injector test mode. There is nothing in MS to control fuel pressure. So either your regulator is whack, you have it connected wrong, or your return line is constricted.

Re: Rebuilt Title car

Suggest you check with your insurance company. I had a rebuilt title car at one time, it sucked. Tried Farmers, Allstate, Geico, Progressive... none would insure it. Had to go to one of the smaller companies and cost was much higher.

Re: Megasquirt MS3X KA24DE wont start

Edit: The fact that I am running these CDI coils with a Diy Quadspark might have some significance aswell. Why? Seems over complicated. MS3X should be able to drive 4 logic level coils directly. I'd recommend getting a set of LS coils for a GM truck. The D585 coil with round body and heatsink on th...

Re: Megasquirt MS3X KA24DE wont start

Does the coil get hot just by being plugged in? If so, it could be the Spark Output setting is wrong in your Ignition Options/Wheel Decoder menu. You currently have it set to 'Going High'. Try changing it to 'Going Low' and see if the coil stays cool. Some Megasquirt implementations drive the coil d...

Re: Megasquirt MS3X KA24DE wont start

FIRST, when you pulled your dizzy and restabbed it 180 off, are you sure it was TDC on the compression stroke? 4 cyl engines have two Top Dead Cylinder events per cycle. If you got your dizzy 180 off and have it set for TDC on the exhaust stroke, that's going to mess everything up timing-wise. Just...

Re: Megasquirt MS3X KA24DE wont start

I have never done a coil conversion. After doing one, is it possible to just plug the spark plug wires back in instead? Or is some other modification needed? If you mean plugging the wires back into the distributor, absolutely not. As Nuke says, it requires setting changes. But it also requires wir...

Re: Megasquirt MS3X KA24DE wont start

1.5.1 is correct version for MS3X. Your Basic/Load Settings look okay. But in General Setting you may want to change Incorporate AFR Target from 'don't include' to 'include'. This will make your VE table more meaningful. In Ignition Settings tab under Ignition Options/Wheel Decoder I see one error. ...

Re: Megasquirt MS3X KA24DE wont start

One more suggestion, check this link for some base tunes - http://www.megasquirtpnp.com/mspnp2_maps.php Do not load any of these tunes and try to use them on your setup. But you can use these to cut and paste the VE table and Timing table as a starting point to help get your engine started. You stil...

Re: Megasquirt MS3X KA24DE wont start

Logs are worthless without the MSQ file. Go into TunerStudio and save your tune, then go look in the Documents\TunerStudioProjects\yourprojectname and get the MSQ file. Post it. Have you already registered on the SUPPORT FORUM at https://www.msextra.com/? Do you have all the MS3 MANUALS? Have you re...

It's still a bit of a work in progress. 1991 Nissan D21 Hardbody 4x4 5-speed KA24E, 2.4l SOHC, 12-valve, stock internals ...

By the way, I'm in central Texas hill country area. If anyone in the area knows where I can get a spare SOHC KA engine please give me...
