Poject Discussion Forum Rules
This is a new section of where you guys can discuss other users cars. There are just a few rules that need to be followed for this forum to stay nice, clean and easy to use:

1. ONE thread per car. Search the forum for an existing thread before starting your own, things stay tidy that way.
2. Try and stay on topic if you can.
3. Thread titles must be in this format: Username's and the car project

I have created this section so it keeps the build diarys clean and allows the builder of the car to keep us updated a bit like a BLOG so please use this section to disscuss the builders cars and we should see a much easier forum to navigate.

Thanks, going ok seen I've never built a car before. Built lots of boats, but no cars. Learning heaps though.

This relay opperates the fuel pump. From what I gather with the ignition key on run , the air flow meter switch turns on with the air coming into engine ( light green wire keeps relay and pump on) With ignition key on start air flow meter is off ( not open yet ) and the fuel pump is turned on by the violet wire coming from the sign fuse.

I can’t comment about the MX5 but do know old Toyota’s use a twin coil relay for safety on the fuel pump so it turns it off the fuel if the engine is stalled. Is this the same ?
