Renault 12, (810) Happy Happy

Happy Nodiz'er here.

Replaced the points in my Reno 12, with the Nodiz over the weekend (well a couple of weekends if I'm honest), drove it to work and happy as can be.

First of course the mandatory youtube success video. ...

There is it with the choke out warming up for the first time :)

Oh, and whats a Reno 12? Gees you young kids I don't know.

A small VR sensor is installed on the back of the standard pulley, and the sensor is attached to the oil pan, pointing directly at the back of the wheel. The hardest part was making a bracket (mostly because I'm a muppet), but a few crappy versions later this simple right angle appears to be doing enough, and providing enough adjust-ability.

Shielded wire runs up to the right (drivers side) and along the chassis rail to meet the ECU in the cabin.

A generic Bosch wasted spark coil pack was used, I was impatient waiting for the correct terminal so I soldered some leads directly and crimped ye ol' splades to make it work. To mount it, I gutted the old dizzy, and made some simple brackets to sit it on top. I left the drive cog and shaft in the dizzy just to secure the oil pump drive.

In situ, it doesn't look all that different to be honest.

ECU and coil pack share a fuse, and are powered from the traditional switched coil pack lead which is based at the back of the engine.. or front if it was an R8/10 I suppose.

This was done as I'm preparing to change carbs, cam's etc etc, being able to map a curve I like will be most handy.

TODO: Bunch of sensors (air / coolant / map), once I sort the carbs and manifold out.

But in the shorter term, wire up a clutch switch for some flat shifts and launch control :lol:
