TJ Fuel injection

PostPost by: vstibbard » Fri Jul 10, 2020 11:07 am

Hi All,
I’m hoping someone here knows enough about TJ injection to be able to help me identify what’s missing, I think it’s essentially the dynamo/ engine driven pump bracket and the mechanism that fits at end of throttle bodies that the throttle cable connects to which sends opening detail back to the control unit.
This kits essentially unused, still has original hose to be made up, and nylon Low pressure hoses,

Any help appreciated and any potential sources of TJ pets appreciated.
Regards

Vaughan,

Scroll down through this site, it has a number of TJ fuel injection pamphlets, the original manual and installation instructions. It may be of help.

You don't mention your application. I recall reviews that said it was a very limited system, unsuitable for use on the road given its very basic metering capability. As far as I know, it was mainly used in competition cars in throttle on/off applications like circuit racing and rallying.

If you plan on fuel injection, modern EFI will be streets ahead of this system.

Andy.

edit: fixed the link

Thanks Andy, I have a small valve Brian Hart LTC engine for an open wheel race car that competed in F1 in Asia with Waggott 1600 and FVA and LTC, Waggott 1600/2000 engines in the Tasman Series races Held in late 60’s in Australia and NZ.
The only issue I have is the throttle bodies are only 36mm bore, so likely this kit was more road oriented or for BMC Downton conversions, or pre/cross flow Ford due to small diameter. I expect I’ll need minimum 42-45mm throttle bore.
First need to see if I have all the hard to find parts, then I’ll see if the throttle bodies can be bored,
Cheers
