29 year old bug found in 2,9l Amphi Ranger wiring diagram by Rene Pohl.

The 2,9l AR gives a 29 error (speed sensor) that sensor is original connected to pin 4
Because of the error the engine runs always in secure mode
in that mode the engine has 20% less power

In the Ford manual (same engine) the speed sensor is connected with pin 3

Rene swapped the VSS wire from pin 4 to 3.

The test drive popped up no more errors!!! Everything is fine now!

That is crazy!

This problems is s not caused accidentally by a wiring mechanic but
by the engineer who has mixed up the CPU pins in the wiring diagram!

This is essential! It means ALL 2,9l AR do have this VSS problem!

Amphi-ranger number 3 found after 20 years in cellar.

OK, it is a large cellar of the Technical University in Delft Netherlands.

It was parked there for 20 years.
The private owner was planning a restore but never made a real start.

No 3 is the oldest real Amphi-ranger, the other 2 where real prototypes.
She was build in 1983 as a demonstration model
After two years converted to the specifications of 1985.
then brought to England to serve as a demonstration model.

Therefore this Amphi-ranger shows in many leaflets etc.
After a year she was sold by the factory to the man that parked her in the Netherlands after a few year of use on the river Thames and on the roads of London.

Dutton has a new amphibious model the Surf.

On his web site he writes:

Until now we have been using the 11 year old moulds and
modifying each car to accept the later Jimny components,
a perfectly satisfactory solution but cost and time consuming.

The old moulds where made for the leaf spring Suzuki Samurai!
The Suzuki Jimny is a coil spring vehicle.!
That sounds so much Dutton to me. ;-)

He also has a new URL for his website.
