had to do adjustments many times in the past but dont remember if I made it longer or shorter,but suggest you have a fiddle. But be sure that you mark or measure the original position so after adjusting and no result you can at least put it back in position.Adjusting puts the motor in a slightly different segment. good luck

Before you get too carried away with the EDIC check the ignition switch. when they wear they can make a poor connection which goes open cct causing the EDIC to turn the engine off. also check the wiring and any connectors for poor connections. A crook engine fuse or circuit breaker will also cause probs.
Another problem could be the oil pressure switch, the 2H and 12HT have a second oil pressure switch which will cut the motor if there is no oil pressure as these engines will run backwards just as well as forwards. That is why 2H engines die when starting afetr an oil and filter change, no oil pressure until the filter is full.

Never thought of that one peter to be honest .What i have noticed is when the ignition is switched on the edic arm is supposed to go back to the 78 degree mark presumablyy for starting purposes ,the edic is failling to do this so there could be a chance it isnt getting power ,but is somehow getting it once the engine is started but once the lights and heater are on the edic arm throws forward and shuts the fuel .I took the lead of the oil swich and grounded it and the arm shut the fuel off which is as should be .all the circuit breakers have been checked and engine fuse looks sweet .I think peter the ignition switch will be my next check .Thanks peter

If the ig switch checks out I'd try and borrow one just to be sure, weird things can happen with vehicles.
Then I'd go after the connections and wiring.
Also check the earth straps between engine and chassis and chassis and body.
Keep us in the loop as you go, much better to have people looking over your shoulder as it is easy to go in circles when fault finding.

Hi all,thanks for all youe advice i have now sorted the edic problem out ,i feel a right fool but still the issue has been resolved after much wire testing ,it actually did turn out to be a bad earth .The earth from the body to the engine block was a bit dodgy ,it seemed to be having good continuity in it even right up to the lug on the body end and my multimeter was buzzing quiet merrily ,so obviously thought it was ok but when i actually put the tester onto the bolt itself the multimeter showed a bad earth ,so i cleaned it and everything is now sweet .The sense of relief from the missus was palpable ,after all the idea of a possible new alternator or edic motor was enough to send the bank balance into overload ,so shes pleased and im even more pleased and as i ve said already thankyou to you kind gents for giving me some very valid pointers. carson

dont waste your time and money getting a bybass switch is stalled all they do is operate the edic motor round and round, To actually get it to stop fully forwards and shut the motor off is time consuming and a p@#$ off also you can unknowingly leave them in the over fuel position ( I used how much fuel?????) take it from someone that has been down this path................... dont!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Carson
great to hear you fixed it, it's weird the problems that can happen as the vehicles get older and things deteriorate.
you will probably find that the batteries will charge better now as there would have been a voltage drop across the crook earth.
