it can be bolted down.. will see how it goes. it cant go far, 25mm around the edges
Thanks - just curious, first time seeing one installed and all that
Just limit it to non 8v's mind as we wouldn't want the torque to rip it back out .
Nice updates Bill
wiring it tonight hopefully
painted some more floor this afternoon, got mrsb lupo rear shocks replaced and an mot this afternoon
christened the dyno today
golf 3 8v supercharged on it.. seemed ok, planted on rollers - 148bhp, 150lbft and sweet 12:1 afr on full load, which i was chuffed with after only mapping it on the m5 so far.
playing with settings
lots to learn.
lupo was too low, so will mod dyno tomorrow and try again.
tufftys s3 went on for a few runs also, playing with ramp rates for higher powered cars was interesting. some evidence of wheelspin, but nothing which upset the dyno it seems.. dyno can hold the gt30 easily, when holding loads.
more manual to read
awesome to see it running finally
big 600mm diameter 1442rpm fan arrived today which i need to wire up to 3phase and check out how to wire it to 2 speed :confused: somehow.
Well done Bill, chuffed for you, must be such privilege having a dyno, and i bet few late nights to be had in the workshop having a play!
Excellent - no messing about! Must bring the calibration diseasel along at some point
Nice one Bill. Need to get your monster on there for a proper shake down.
Good luck with it...
8v mk3 of george, with eaton m45 mini cooper-s supercharger and s40 dta ecu
car ride height is a factor
i was settling on mrsB lupo this after noon, after modding the dyno slightly. exhaust clearance was achieved easily, but it would'nt sit right or steer nice on the rollers, so checked tyre presures and ride height, and saw the nsf shock had burst, oozing oil.. so ended up reverting the lupo back onto its bilstein/eibach fronts ( replaced its rear shocks for its old billies, after one of its cheap vmaxx shocks had also leaked only on friday ) - so ride height is higher now anyhows, and adjusted up the rear ride height on its rear coilies so its sat level. I ran out of inclination tonight to play with it on the rollers again, so will resume tomorrow. it should sit fine now.
i may play with the dyno's installed height also tomorrow, to lift it a little more out of the ground.
pros and cons of excessively low cars, with additional lcr splitters on them running smaller wheels.. balancing act of rollers which sit low enough to retain traction vs those which perch on the top, and ride heights. more maunal to read tonight..
large fan to wire in next and work out how to 2 speed it.. hopefully good to go for fitment and craigs training on its use. floor plate tie downs arrived which i will bolt into the floor tomorrow also..
getting there now
Nice work Bill very impressive
is the fan wired in Star or Delta
if its Delta you can have a variable speed controller
What a great thing to be able to play with.
No problem with the neighbours, I assume.
on an industrial estate, with a 24/7 Dairy Crest plant close by which thunders tankers all hours of the day.. I dont expect to have any problems when I am likely to be running the dyno heavily.
never say never of course.
dataplate off fan
fan connection inside terminal box
wiring reads in box
2U - 2V - 2W
1U - 1V - 1W
double wound motor yea?
one set is high speed?
or one set is low, add second set get higher?
bit more floor painted and dyno controller & logger on its new trolly frame
Yes Bill its wired in Delta
1U/V/W = LS - Low Speed 420v 1.8A
2 U/V/W = HS - High Speed connections 420V 4.2A
do you have the speed controller diagram or connection details
I'll come down and connect it Saturday if i can have a go on the Roller with the MK1
would be a good crack me thinks..
its not operational to folks as such until I am comfortable with it...
but... if you dont have huge expectations, I am sure we could have a play on the day on it.
wired the fan last night using 2U,2V,2W connections, fan ran but did'nt seem to be fast.. not 1440 rpm.. probably half that
wired the fan onto the 1U,1V,1W connections and it ran reversed, but same speed
got stuck now.
