So the frequency valve is another emissions add on? What do you have to change to remove this PITA valve?
Beyond my knowledge. Since that freq valve controls fuel flow from the lower differential chamber back to the gas tank, for those of us running open-loop (O2 sensor disconnected) the freq valve will stay at a constant duty cycle...something like 50%...as opposed to modulating in response to the lambda computers' direction as it sees the O2 content of the exhaust gasses changing. Thus, in open loop it's fixed and never changes.
Makes one wonder if a simple flow regulator of sorts - set up to match the flow the freq valve allows when at fixed duty cycle- would suffice and take out the electrical failure potential of the freq valve?
