CO meter
Possibly a silly question and you can all laugh, but I want to make sure. I have an old CO meter that i bought in the days of Ford V6 conversions in my old Kombi :oops: It was also in the days of carburators of coures, so my question is this...CO content is CO content isn't it, regardless of fuel management systems? So using it to measure current engines CO content still should valid?

Re: CO meter
Hi
I am by no means a boffin,but all I can say is BEWARE.I popped an Andreno engine due to wrong CO2 setting.On the Andreno engine there is a specific way of checking on the move as well.It is not with the old school method of sticking a prod in the exhaust and taking a reading....you get a specific tool for getting the correct reading...

Re: CO meter
Hi Hans, thanks for warning, I am aware of dangers with this. Dean, i agree, don't fix whats not bust, but if you remember I have the wbx6 and as we all seem to suffer from erractic idleing etc, I also find that "they who shall not be mentioned" have often set the CO and then next time they look at it its all over the place so its gets adjusted again, and again! So, I'm wanting to double check myself, taking the time to get it right, i have all the manuals on procedure, and rather even make sure it is running a bit rich if anything, to safe gaurd the motor against exactly what Hans is talking about.
