Weber and Coulomb's MX-5

The ECU is not needed, as far as we can tell so far. But the wiring often proves useful for other purposes. We are putting two Tritium Driver-Controls units (DCUs) in the location where the ECU used to be. For example one DCU receives the signals from the accellerator pedal unit via wires that used...

Weber and Coulomb's MX-5

Hello Weber,

A quick question; did you completely remove the ECU and its wiring from the car, or is it still needed for something?

Thanks!

Weber and Coulomb's MX-5

Logically, it must be the same, because it is as much a part of the design of the gearbox, as the engine, and these engines are interchangeable without having to alter the gearbox. Well at the bottom of this page http://www.topdownmx5.com/clutch.htm there is a side by side picture of the two flywhe...

... http://forums.aeva.asn.au/viewtopic.php?title=weber-and-coulombs-mx5&t=980&p=30142#p30142 We have not yet had it balanced and are limiting the rpm, but we expect to have it (and the motor rotor) balanced before allowing it to go to max design rpm (6000). With your 22.23 mm dia shaft you may be ...

Oh! I so wanted a blue one. http://forums.aeva.asn.au/smileys/smiley1.gif Beautiful. Thanks! I'm told it was a limited edition for the '94 model year.

Weber and Coulomb's MX-5

We made a new flywheel, but the clutch plate (= friction disk) and pressure plate are standard. The reason we did this was because we wanted to use a taper-lock hub so it was removable, rather than shrink fit a hub to the motor shaft. And the inner bolt circle that used to mount the flywheel to the...

Weber and Coulomb's MX-5

I had a private request for dimensions of the adapter plate for the gearbox bellhousing of the Mazda MX-5, also known as the Mazda Miata (USA) and the Eunos Roadster (Japan). I thought I might as well post it here too, in case someone else can benefit. Apparently it may suit some other Mazdas as we...
