Default Re: HFS-6 Inconcistent Injection

Thanks for the quick reply, how do I access inside of fcm? It has foam on the mounting surface,to reduce vibration I suppose, are there screws there to gain access?

Thanks

Photos from inside, tested again after reassembly and have a maximum of two bars reading for no more than two seconds under TST mode with jet spraying into bottle. Sorry if photos are too big doing this from my phone

I have also run trough my calcs for jet size. Original installer had 1mm jet installed.

240cc injectors x 6 + 440cc 7th injector =

1880cc/0.15 (water or 50/50)=

282cc/min water meth=

0.5mm jet

Does this seem right? There is no boost compensation in jet pressure as water is injected pre supercharger.

Richard have you got anymore suggestions for me? There doesn't appear to be any corrosion?

Looks very clean to me. Good.

What are the flow results of a 1mm nozzle for 1 minute?

Looks clean from the outside. I wonder how clean is the internals, FAV and flow sensor. Do you use distilled water?

One more possibility for inconsistency. Since the pump is not water proofed. The internal bearing may be partially seized and cannot generate a proper pressure. Can you remove the pump head and check the pump bearings.

Alternatively, splice in an inline 300psi pressure gauge, and check if the line pressure is around 160psi.

Havenít done a times flow test yet, will do that soon and report back. Will be with the 0.8mm jet as I recently changed down to that.

Yes always use distilled water, I will go over the pump and see if there is any corrosion. When I have put into TST before, the flow seemed to be solid with no variance in flow for the whole test period, this was for quite a few minutes as I ran nearly two liters through it. How does the flow sensor work? Is it an external sensor? I can only see cabling going to the circuit board, nothing going to flow sensor, or is it a paddle wheel and Hall effect type arrangement?

Will report back soon.

Flow sensor is the hall effect type. It senses the rotating speed of the magnetic turbine within the metal tube.

If flow is not steady under TST test, pump is the prime suspect.

That is understandable, when i was in TST mode though it wouldn't register at all, apart from an intermittent spike every now and then of 2 bars. makes me think the sensor wheel may be sticking. is there anyway i can pull it apart and inspect? havent had a chance to do a one minute flow test yet.

regards

Bit of an update of some work i have done.

I tested the cc/min of the installed #8 jet. It only pumped out about 260cc. The chart shows at 160psi should be near 460cc/min. This is indicating to me the pump could be failing.

I pulled the flow sensor housing apart and everything was free, blowing through the unit with my mouth i could feel the trigger impeller spinning. This is telling me the it either isnt spinning due to reduced pressure or flow in the line.

Next step will be to pull apart the pump head and check for signs of corrosion etc.

Other than that, i can only assume that the flow sensing circuit has failed.
