Erm, I am sure I can sort some thing out.

A how to write up is a fare bit of work just for one or two.

This thread is long since zombied, but, inspired by Big_wasa, I'm doing a full strip of my ST170 loom, and rebuild it 'lighter'.
I was fortunate enough to start from a full MOT'd car, so I shouldn't be missing anything. I did sell the console with the clock and hence my immobiliser-armed LED, but that should be a 50c replacement.
All Ford interconnects (unions that join wire to another wire, or go through bulkheads etc) have been cut out, leaving only connector to connector links).
I'm doing up a big spreadsheet of every connector I need (I'll caveat this; I'mbuilding a MEV Rocket, so no doors, alarm, AC, power steering etc), what colour the stock wires are, and what pin on what connector/fuse/relay they go to. There's a tab for the Fuses and relays too.
Initially I'm doing track-only, so v1 won't have lights, horn etc.
Should be finished the theory part in about a week or two, and I've wired up about 20% of the connectors for real in the garage. Probably a couple of months till turn over, it's a one-day-a-weekend project.

Absolutely wouldn't be possible (for me) without the Ford wiring diagram, and I use the connector and component references from it throughout. Probably going to need it to use my guide.

Progress so far. Again, this is for an ST170 engined kit-car, and presumes you have the original wiring loom, or want to use the same colours.

Yep, this thread is invaluable, and I was inspired by the video of yours mounted in a wooden crate; I made one for my own lump, which has been converted into a welding table since the engine/gb were dropped into my Rocket.
There are a few bits I'm doing differently, some of the connector designations are for the standard Zetec rather than the ST170-specific ones and a couple of things your first post leaves out that I'd include (like the VVT, Crankshaft pos.). If I can make it look alright, I'll do diagrams of some circuits.

More information the better. Each one I do I get the info over a little better.( not my strong point) See the Zetec SE.

My next one is for a mid engine.

Coming soon Focus rs managed turbo Zetec.

Brilliant! Is that a fuel tank or N2O?

My heart will likely ultimately take me back to aFord Racing Puma, and the Sigma / Zetec SE

Yeh it's a converted fire extinguisher for a fuel tank.

I love the simplicity of the Zetec e.

Evap codes question

Hi, all

First time here and I really hope someone can help me with a nagging problem i have.

I live in the states and I have a Caterham with an '04 SVT motor and I need to get it through emissions here in Georgia. Emissions here doesn't actually mean what comes out the exhaust, it means they plug a reader into the OBD port and fail it if any codes exist, whether or not they're related to exhaust gas! It's strange, but i'm stuck with it.

My problem is that my car has codes p0453 and p1451 permanently in the system due to how the wiring and/or switches were modified for this car, but i see from reading this thread that it's possible to install a resistor to perhaps tell the ECU (pin 56 perhaps?) that all is well with the tank pressure and stop the codes reappearing.

The other requirement from the man is i have to have MIL on the dash. I can't see from the diagram which pin relates to the MIL. I think it's pin 2 from what else I've read, but I wonder if anyone can help me figure the above out? If so, does this pin switch to ground or + voltage when a code is present?

I've called mechanics and garages and most won't go near this car because it's weird. The car's also a pain to start, but that's my next challenge for when I can get it roadworthy

thanks in advance

Hi everybody!
I posted few months ago some questions about restarting my ST 170 engine: Someone of this blog give me an advice, so I followed the Excel sheet on this post and now, the engine run! Magic!!!
Well, now I've some questions about a pipe and 3 hoses: for the moment I just put plugs and scotch tape but if you can help me to find what to do with, it 'll be great!
the problem is that I don't know how to do to put a picture on the post!!!

The "how to" thread gets more traffic and there for replies.

Really need a photo
