easiest thing to check is spark.
If you are getting spark lets discount that as a problem.
Injectors can (Not all) be direction sensitive (I know I had trouble with the ID1000 injectors being wired backwards).
So check that the +12v is on the right side of the injector and in fact they are firing.
Are you sure timing is correct?

Good luck

Bryan

Bryan, you pick what I missed, well done.

The timing checked out OK as did the spark.

I kept looking for electrical problems.

I was using the Honda S2000 service manual for the USA.
It talks about an immobilizer, which I could not find
nor had a remote for, The only Black box I could find turned out to be the
Keyless remote box, for which I did not have the remote for either.

After a lot of investigation I found out that the Japanese
domestic market cars don't have immobilizers and the keyless
remote only opens the doors.

A friend of mine suggested the Fuel injectors might have
fuel pressure applied to them, and an electrical pulse
applied to them, but were they actually passing fuel.

I removed the injectors and had them tested and cleaned
and was informed that all four injectors were blocked.

Once cleaned and reinstalled the motor started on the first crank.

The injector cleaning people said that Japanese fuel is
good quality but has ethanol in it and will seize injectors
if left for a long time, and in my case it was about
about 2 years.

So once started the wiring looms were reduced to the minimum
and installed in the car.

The blue bastard lives . . . . .

The Blue Bastard is now driveable and needs a wheel alignment.

Because of the 15" x 8" wheels which have zero off set the
front guards and the under tray required a fair bit of
"opening up" to get the required clearances.

A texta to mark the line and a hack saw blade to cut the
bits off worked ok but it was such a shame to have to
hack into the finished body work.

all most finished. . . . . . . . .

The front guards have been patched and paint
touched up.

Time for the finishing bits.

I made an engine cover from steel in the early
days but have decided not to use it.
I can't weld Aluminium so have pop riveted a
cover together.

The convex interior mirror works very well and
gives a great view out the rear. It makes up for
the crap door mirrors.

The door mirrors look cool and are CAMMS approved
but don't work very well.

At this point in time there are no windscreen wipers
and if I can manage there will never be any.
Just plenty of Rain-X

The last Post.

The rear wing was designed to be end mounted
but I could not make end braces that I
thought looked any good.
So I modified the wing and centre mounted it.

The mounts go down through the boot lid and
connect to the floor.


So that's it.

All finished, Thanks for following.
I hope it was worth the read.

Cheers

Geoff

The Blue Bastard goes very well when it is running.

I'm having some HONDA related issues at the moment.

If anyone knows the fix for oil surge in a Honda F20C
please let me know.

And a weird error code from the ECU.
"Higher than expected current"
Considering most of the load is
gone from the ECU I'm at a loss to figure
this one out.

Cheers
Geoff

The electrical loads the the ECU sources include:
* Injectors
* Coils
* Fuel pump
So perhaps one of those is drawing too much current. What's the code number?

Oil surge while cornering, maybe you need this: http://www.toda-racing.co.jp/en/product/oilpan/f20c-oilpan.html

Oil surge when revving high, I've heard about modifying the cam windage plate to let oil drain down faster
