Has anyone got a timer fitted to their Rodeo 2.8 TD. I've been surfing the web for brands of timers / where to buy etc and one company (Redarc) mentioned the Isuzu range has a unique igniiton system??
Appreciate any advice.

Just a thought, i think timers are fround upon by the law in some states, that is why they are not fitted as standard, i just let things 'slow' down before switching off.

Jaycar electronics sell basic kit for $29.95, you get bag of components, circuit board, box etc then you have assemble it. is setup for about 90 sec but this can be
changed by changing the appropriate timing resistor on the 555 chip.

Jack,
Bought one for my old Rodeo at the newsagency for $3, once a week, simply park ute, open mag check out all the home girls and then its was time to shut down. Later tried the up market version for $7.50 a week but found the engine tended to idle for to long and passerbys were giving curious looks. The only problem with this systemis that your missus might refuse to use it or demand a different brand!! Good luck champ,
Hughesy
