    Another B4 Speedometer Issue Thread

    Medium resistance, not one way or the other. I just tested both on the board again and compared each to a couple spares I had and they were comparable 140+ Ohms http://www.learningaboutelectronics.com/Articles/How-to-test-a-capacitor

    Another B4 Speedometer Issue Thread

    So I just checked the resistance on the larger cap and it is showing 1.5Ohms which I suspect I do not want. Can I get a confirmation?

    Just Another ALH Build

    It's been a mild winter so far, glad to see Anuthee got you sorted out, he is good people. Ive managed 740 miles on my new build so far. I am in the process of fixing a cluster issue in my daily so I have been driving my ALH golf around in the meantime. Keep it going!

    Another B4 Speedometer Issue Thread

    I managed to figure out the caps, although now I do not have a speedo or tach, I still have odometer and clock so at this point I think the issue may be in the ELMOS. Symptoms include, grinding from cluster at key on and it seems like I can hear the stepper motor rotating and catching. What can...

    jhax's Built ALH into a MK2 Golf thread

    Correction, I think I want to clock the inlet housing of the CHRA based on the linked photo, that will push the arm and vein lever down further (opening the veins more initially). https://turbosurgery.com/3327-large_default/audi-a4-a5-a6-20-tdi-cglc-garrett-gtc1549vz-817047-1-818987-1-turbo.jpg

    jhax's Built ALH into a MK2 Golf thread

    Alright based on how the turbo is currently oriented, I believe that in order to Lengthen the arm I need to clock the turbo clockwise. This is as far as the fine adjustments will allow me to go. Note the paint is where it was originally. If I am correct I can clock the turbo further in a...

    jhax's Built ALH into a MK2 Golf thread

    Ah, yeah I opted for mk3 just because it was more readily available. And I actually used B4 control arms which are shorter than MK3 believe it or not. I stuck with them as opposed to going back to mk2. I purchased a fender roller which helped, also an alignment really helped. Thank you Steve, I...

    Thank you, I am running a mk3 cluster. Works like a charm I have been sending some logs to @burpod who has informed me that my actuator arm on my GTC1549VZ turbo is too short, causing my actual boost to be way above requested. I took off the actuator to find that there is no physical adjustment...

    Another B4 Speedometer Issue Thread

    Well that's a no go. Plugged the cluster displays are blank until key on, then they display as they should, heard the whirring noise, started it up no tach drove a few yards, no speedo. When I initially removed the tach needle it took the stepper motor cover with it. There are 2 gears one...

    Another B4 Speedometer Issue Thread

    I never even removed the white plastic that is on the board. I had enough room to desolder the large cap from the bottom of the board.

    Another B4 Speedometer Issue Thread

    I put it all back together it was an inductor there, my board looks like the photo above only 1 capacitor the C970 (furthest space on the right) did not originally have a cap also like the picture above.
