Thanks guys. We may be getting close to the answer I am looking for. I am seriously beginning to question my fuel pumps as the limiting factor. I think at 1400cc/30 sec (over 6 injectors) this is very close to the 227/30 sec calculation(above) (1360). So it looks like I need to be measuring 1400/30 sec minimum at the injectors. I will check this and the CP at boost. If I am getting 1400 at the FD without 7 bar pressure I seriously doubt I can get near 1400 at the injectors.
Now that I have access to my manual, I see as T77911s notes, there are two fuel pump delivery rates quoted. The 1150/30 sec and for type 68 engine 1500cc.
My engine is actually a type 68 (in an 82 chassis). I am not sure how they arrive at two fuel rates for say a type 60 vs 68 engine. Did they have different pumps?
So at 1400cc FD as I have measured, I may be down on flow. This fits the scenario better than any other explanation. Anyone know why a 68 engine needs more fuel flow? Same displacement and HP as a type 60.
I have a spare (new ) rear pump. Would fitting an 044 pump up front work with the new rear pump fitted?
I am about to try and source some fittings to check the pump differential pressures.
Thanks for the help guys.
Will post some results - hopefully in next few days.
Regards
Alan
