  • 1.8 k series kit car , HELP!

    Hello,
    I need an urgent advise. My kit car broke down some time ago. I was driving from one electrician to another to fix it and now it's finally starting with a new ECU.
    Unfortunately, I'm not sure if its the right one. Electrician claims it's from 1.8l but it behaves like it's from 1.6.
    How can i check exact model or engine version which that ECU came from? I have only the below details:
    WL Rover
    MKC104030
    2086 4087 and a barcode number which probably is useless.
    Any ideas? Need urgent help.

    It would appear to be from a 1.6 Rover, see link attached.

    I have the same ECU in my car (GTM Libra) and it also has a 1.6 K series....

      THANK YOU FOR THAT. Just to let you know, somehow I've found a person who sold that ECU and apparently it's 1.8l Petrol - i'm just unsure if it's VVC or not.
      Either way i do have another issue. I've dismantled the loom ( found loads of short circuits) and now I'm check if the ECU is receiving all relevant details. I was lucky because there is no easy way of checking which ECU is that.

      What catched my attention is that the owner gave me spare camshafts ( he thought they are broken). I just figured out the the ones fitted in the kit car are different to the spare ones.
      Do you have any idea how to indentify them? I've spend few hours scrolling but can't find anything. To be more precise i've got the below camshafts. I need to know which one will be correct for and which one is inlet/outlet... that car is in a mess but i want to do my best to restore it.

      Camshaft numbers:
      LYD 3 LGC106970
      LYD 13 LGC106970
      2X LYD 5 LGC 106970

      Could do with any help!

        You should better search for a good electrician, even if it is an expensive one. I know there are many people that are going to poor services in order to pay less money but I would say that you need to take care of your car at the best services. Because when you pay more, it works more, I already proved this fact to myself. Moreover I have friends that are working at narscars.com.ua and they know how to take care of cars. Their agency have the best quality because they pay more for the car service.
