Good to see this progress Jonathan and your now married, congratulations  :bravo_2:

A word of warning about the alternator, check your voltages on slow running as I ran a Walbro as a lift pump with an 044 and a 40amp could not keep up with the draw from the pumps.

Keep us posted on this great build  8)     
All the best Clive

Thanks guys for the support, will try and keep the progress going over the winter for a season next year (I keep saying this)!...

Clive, you are correct, I don't think that alternator will charge at all at low revs, I'm banking on the fact that I have a small battery to deal with warm up and such like...  The rest of the time I don't plan to be near that end of the rev range ;)

Jon, yeah I think I know I will need a second one (you keep telling me after all) just have not quite got around to excepting that yet,  I'm sure that will take care of itself at the test day next week!  What size are your coolers?

One other question...

Does anyone know of a good way of getting an oil temp sensor into the R3 any place?  The normal filter sandwich plates do not fit due to the relocation of the oil system to the front cover, anyone know of any good solutions, the rest of the system is AN10 fittings...

I'm trying to avoid dropping the sump to weld up a boss.

Just got the new coil pack bracket bent up and fitted, very pleased (you should have seen the old one!)...  Happy that I took the time to add the laser cut labels for the plug each one belongs too...  Makes it look like it was meant to be there.

OK so we have got everything back together tuned the idle for the new primary injectors for the R3, bumped the base fuel pressure to 450KPa from 380KPa as that made the idle easier to tune (Better atomisation at higher pressure?).  So I now have a 850rpm factory idle from warm up all the way through to operating temp all with ignition only PID control of the idle speed...  Result.

Booked into Llandow on Thursday for a general testing day to see if all the changes have worked!
