    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

    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...

    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.

    Another B4 Speedometer Issue Thread

    Well hopefully I can get this inductor back on, are those polarized? I dont see any indication on it that it is, just a semi opaque plastic housing with a copper coil wrapped around inside it.

    I replaced the bigger capacitor at the top already, that is soldered in. the L101 was desoldered and that smaller capacitor is just sitting in there. the C970 never had anything soldered in it to begin with.

    Another B4 Speedometer Issue Thread

    There was what I now assume is an inductor. I desoldered it thinking it also needed replaced because the information conveyed on this thread "replace the capactorS

    Another B4 Speedometer Issue Thread

    So when it was mentioned to change BOTH capacitors in the top right corner. That is incorrect? Really it is changing ONE capacitor? I am confused.
