    1UZFE boat not starting-Sideshow

    Thanks heaps Sideshow! Turned out to be a corroded terminal going to the main power lead of your loom setup. The wire had actually corroded 1 cm past the insulation. Boat starts first time without fuss now.

    1UZFE boat not starting-Sideshow

    installed new ign barrel was ok for a few starts however the problem returned. What is the best way to test the starter on the 1UZFE will crank the engine ok without having to pull it out? Is there a way just to jump start the starter directly with cabling to the battery?

    External fuel pump ideas?

    I run a bosch 044 fuel pump for my 1UZFE using standard pressure regulators which are already on the fuel rail. Also use Sideshows tacho relay which primes the fuel lines on ignition for 2 secs. It then runs the pump continuously above 200rpm. Never had fuel surge or stavation and run the boat...

    Running fuel pump without fuel pump computer

    Go for sideshows tachometric relay. works well and works everytime. I use a bosch 044 pump and usually run the motor in a boat at 3/4 - WOT all the time. Never misses a beat. The inital 2 secs builds pressure before start and good to hear the pump working before you turn the engine over. Engine...
