Hi, Thanks , i shall give that a go as well, its always worth a try.

Am i right in thinking that these are no longer approved for MOT use ? This would mean that the secrets no longer need guarding ! most of them will end up in the hands of enthusiast like my self who would use them to improve their cars and save the environment also the equipment wouldn't get scrapped saving further needless waste. Come on SUN save the planet and make the information available ! :D

I notice when it starts up it does an auto cal... What is the value of this if they prevent you from using the machine until it has been serviced/calibrated ... it's like they are saying our self cal function is no good ?

Any good on what the spare clamp i have is for ?

Cheers

Lloyd.

Hi, I'm running a 1980 1.5 Ti and was having porblems with the carb due to shaft wear on the primary jet messing the idle adjustments up for the MOT. The Gunson gadjet said it was in spec at 2% but when i went to the MOT his machine measured 0.5% so i decided to get a better gadget. I got a DGA 1800 but it is out of cal and doesn't measure ( at the moment ) . With it came several clips and probes that don't have sockets to plug in at the back ? I was hoping to learn more about these and the proper use of the machine/ maintenance. Currently there is a grey clamp device connected and the oil temp sensor but i have a yellow metal clamp device and some dodgy looking meter leads.

If you know how to get it going again and turn off the MOT test that would be great.

I read that the SUN man needs to come round and turn it off, i am guessing here but there must be a common code to use as there are hundreds of machines out there and they can't all have individual codes ? is a boot disk needed?

Bypassing the warm up period sounds like a real bonus.

All help gratefully recieved.

Thanks

Lloyd

I have also got a DGA 1800, had since they first came out. When about 12 months old I enquired about the  add on timing kit, if memory served me right they were about £700 + Vat then, and they said that stock was limited, so may not be available now?

There are many different types of equipment now on the market, look around there are some bargains out there.:D
