the only reason i said what i did above Richard is that fitting the cleaned injectors made it run like a peach for anout 5 minutes, its a good point you make for sure, maybe the injector thing was just a red herring..............

Not a problem Dean, that first 5 minutes of running like a peach may have been prior to the Lambda warming up whereupon it started to give duff info to the ECU.

I managed to buy a new one for £30 delivered, so will give it a whirl, i will check the wiring though guys thanks.

When i fitted the last new one it ran well for a short time.

does it not have a heated tip to get working straight away (ish)? mind you Tim didnt say exactly how long it ran well for.

Was that before Richard sorted the rail pressure and timing though?

Most Lambda probes are heated and even with those they still take a few minutes to get going.

That really was an excellent CXM :-D

Regrettably it did for me and I suffered a bad relapse. Just beginning to slowly recover now...

:lol: There was also a fantastic looking ZX Volcane there that I loved - just a shame that ZX numbers are so low that they don't warrant a trophy of their own...yet... :wink:

Still sorting out these pictures, but might put some up tonight...
