I think there is a sensor on the rack above it I think.. like the old days
...when you crank the wheel max it keeps idle up.. My corsica had it and it
was located near the firewall above the rack.. I unplugged it.
I meant while sitting still and not turning the wheel. It started
immediately after I rigged it. That's why I'm confident it's the rig.
According to the Hayes book, I have no sensor. I believe the rig is
creating extra drag on the motor (as William said).
The system senses it and compensates by increasing the RPM's. Almost
immediately the drag decreases at the pump pressure goes high and the
systems reduces RPM's. After 2 seconds it happens all over again. Can I
adjust the sensitivity of the system or the Idle so it won't do this?? DB
I used to do similar on models a couple of years older when they had
"hard spots" during turning--drilling the opening would eliminate having to
replace rack-and-pinion, which was quite expensive. BUT: I'm afraid you may
have drilled too big. IIRC, I increased the opening like the next drill
size on a coarsely-stepped set of bits.
Also, I recall the pressure fitting was removeable, meaning you should
be able to get one from either a core (store that sold a new/rebuilt pump)
or from a salvage yard. Might be a good idea to plan on drilling it in
"steps" so as to find the sweet spot. HTH, s
