Great thread, just been right through it again. Some very neat welding and the underbody protection looks spot on.

 

Thank you Sir.

 

I do try and post stuff that is worth a quick read through and has a relevent A.S content.

So glad it passed the MOT without issue, it’s an excellent wee thing.

Woof! That looks mint. Haxby's car?


Yes Haxby’s, bought it off a pilot in Saltash, it was his late mother’s. They are great fun to drive!

The little Daihatsu has done a tank of fuel now at around 38mpg i am happy with that and continues to scare me,not with its acceleration but with its brakes and wayward cornering antics.
I do seem to be creating an impressive amount of brake dust though.

The auto box so I'm told is useless because it's made of chocolate and wont last till Easter so i thought it best i gave it its first fluid change.

It holds over 5 litre of dexron 3 but you can only get half of it out so i did one change today and will go again after 50 miles or so.

On the stick this stuff looked clean honest..

That's better.

I gave it a good tonking around the new Amazon / Ikea warehouses that have popped up on the peninsula and it don't seem any slicker but maybe it is a bit quieter.

Update / tinkering.

While hitting the interior with a hoover a while back i noticed some redundant vacuum pipe dangling behind the centre console.

At first i thought it was for a once fitted boost gauge but there were two pipes and one of them went back through the bulkhead and connected to nothing so not for a boost gauge so it must be for one of these...

20190226_130906.jpg

A cheap 'n' cheerful manual boost controller no less.

It was a doddle to fit too and blue silicon vac pipe will make it faster too.

20190227_164754.jpg

T piece bit goes on the Wastegate pipe.

20190227_165817.jpg

And the adjuster goes wherever you want.

It was £10 and works perfectly,the turbo spins up much quicker and stronger but if i vent the turbo actuator too far i hit the ecu's in built fuel cut and i kangaroo down the street.

On the very busy Daihatsu performance facebook page there is a diagram for making a cheat box to fool the ecu into moving the fuel cut from 0.5 to 0.7 bar.

I think thats the next step.

The auto box is exactly why it appeals to me. I love a nippy auto, hence my long term love of the Smart.

Despite my cronic bout of manflu i gave the YRV another transmission fluid change today.
Doesn't seem to have made any difference but at least i know that it's fairly clean now.

I also spent a whole ten pounds on a bit of boy racer bling and nailed it to the dash as required..

20190308_151620.jpg

On the subsequent road test i was producing a whopping 0.5 bar of boost.
So now i need to make a cheat box from a couple of resisters and a potentiometer to get up to 0.7 bar to stop the ecu's fuel cut stopping my fun.

I bought a standard 90bhp 1300 version of these off Wilson Wilson (Is that you, Jim Bell?) on here a few years back and it was a pretty nippy wee thing around town, the turbo must be hilarious.

Don't go blowing it up. Fuel cut is there for a reason.

Yes i totally agree.

 

But talking to various Daihatsu / Toyota guru's it is perfectly safe to go up to a max of 0.7 bar without any stress on these engines.

Did also find this one being broken in Manchester....might be worth a try. Though has front end damage from the look of it.

Likewise. I think any thread headed "Daihatsu..." becomes invisible to my eyes. But now having seen this in the metal I don't know why as it's a cracking wee thing.

The little YRV had developed a bit of a quirk where if you start and drive off straight away it gets stuck in second gear and flashes the D symbol on the dash but if you start and let it idle for a minute then drive off it's always ok.

 

When it gets stuck in second gear switching off and restarting always restores all the gears,this got me thinking it must be electrical rather than mechanical and i had noticed the battery was getting weak if the car was left unused for a few days.

 

Recently after having the radio on for a few hours listening to the very entertaining H+J show on Talksport while cutting the sill off the Brat the battery didn't then have enough grunt to start the engine when i needed to visit the Chippy that evening (big disaster obviously).

 

Now due to my old job i haven't needed to buy a new battery for years so after having a ring around the local factors and nosing online i spent £35 on a Hankook battery with a 4yr warranty (yes i only thought they made tyres too) from Battery Megastore which turned up next day as promised.

I could of got a Lion branded 054 locally for less but from experience they are lucky to last 13 months and are usually under specced in the required amps dept.

 

With the new battery now fitted the gearbox woes have gone so i guess with the old battery the voltage on starting was dropping too low and confusing the fuck out of the gearboxes ecu.

 

Happy days..

That's a nice simple fix man. Low voltage also seems to freak out electric power steering on some small Japanese cars. Doesn't put the battery light on but puts the PS light on.
