Got in touch with the previous owner and the one before that and determined that this thing drove with blatant knock for 30,000km plus. Wow. No wonder the pistons were all pitted! :-D

So in summary the flywheel is bolted on 45 degrees wrongly (one bolt hole off) and I need to do one of these things:

1) Pull engine and rotate flywheel to suit factory regina ignition system.
2) Replace regina with FreeEMS and finish code changes to scheduler to allow it.
3) Crush the car
4) Drill a second sensor hole in the bell housing thingy

And until then it's parked and not being driven! I have just over 2 weeks until it needs a new WOF, so ideally I should do one of those thins before then.

Picked it up off the side of the road earlier and brought it home for a quick getaway tomorrow arvo after work. Time for its first WOF in my possession, fingers crossed :-)

I doubt I'll get a chance to pull the engine and fix the flywheel angle before next year, sadly. Ditto the ECU option. Oh well. Some time in January for sure as I want to use it, it's a sweet little car.
