It would be trivial (for a programmer) to reprogram a mpguino to read fuel flow sensor pulses and assign each one a fixed amount of fuel for display purposes. Heck even a bicycle computer can be calibrated to read a fuel sensor and give a meaningful result. Diesel John has been looking at the sensor end of it closely:
http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthrea...gine-1123.html and I haven't come up with anything better.

But I agree that the still functioning zemcos would be best put to service in a carbureted vehicle, at least until something else comes along.

HA I kinda thought so but as I did/do not program it I was thinking outside the chip whereas you are able to think inside the chip/program.

Can you also program/set it up to read off a small coil that is responding to a pair of nagnets on a drive shaft??

Did you see my post about the peak and hold injector adaptor??

And have you considered makeing they with a case??

And have you considered suppling the three buttons on wires so the builder can pit them in other places?

More when it is done.

On a personal note with the MPGunio doing a better job on FI injected cars, these old units are really better used on cars with carbs, so if the MPGonio works as I beleive it will, I maybe offering my four Zemco Units to those with a greater need for them.

As I can not think of any way of making a MPGunio work on aolder car, even with a add on VSS driver, I can think no flow meter will give the pulase wirth that a injector will, and if I understand the current set up thus the MPGunio will not read MPG with a flow meter count..??

I asked and he said he wants to wait until he can test things on a breadboard before giving it out.

Once proven he will send me a copy.

And either he or I will post it.

Unsure but interested.

I've been looking for a fuel flow monitor.

Are there any of them left? If yes how much to ship to the United kingdom?

Hi there mate, I have one currently coming to the UK this December. Apparently they only can be fit to carb cars but mine is a EFI car. Cheers there.

Zemco Compucruise 44 parts

Do have any parts for the model 44?
I need a either a replacement cruise control vacuum servo or the internal vacuum connector for my Compucruise 44. The vacuum connector broke off rendering the unit inoperable. It's installed on my 1980 Mustang. I miss the cruise control.

Thanks.

Wink Re:Zemco Compucruise 44

I came across this very old post of yours and was wondering if by any remote chance you still have one to sell to me? If not, perhaps you know where I can look for one?
