Hi Ford Fans, please help. I am driving a 1993 Ford Sapphire, 3.0i v6. It is fitted with a Lucas 5am air flow meter. The problem I have is the plug that fitted onto the meter broke, so I just cut it off and attached the wires directly to the connectors of the Air flow with clips, its making contact, but I have a feeling they are not correctly, the throttle pos you adjust for the idle speed is not responding as it did before. There are 5 connectors on the air flow meter. from the left side there are three then a gap and then two. There are many posts in various other forums with the wire color and connector it must connect too, but my wires are completely different.

My wire colors are as follows: Brown with trace Black, Brown with trace Grey, Black and Brown with trace Red.

So, in short, which wire connects to which pin.

Any help would be much appriciated.

Whoever the focus guy is, good choice on the orange stripes.

I haven't done much, mostly because of my insurance and mine will probably become a first car for someone.

I have done however, orange stripes kit, never seen my central stripes kit anywhere else (not sure if anyone would want it haha).

Rear tinted windows down to 5% light

6.1" touchscreen JVC unit

DMB gel badges

Fly eyes back lights and reflectors

Ordering a flip key for it tomorrow (locksmith near me can do them apparently :D)

So yeah, thats all i've done, mostly just wanted to say that i'm so glad i'm not the only one with black and orange :).

As the snow has decided to give us the weekend off I decided to take the plunge and try to wrap the rear diffuser! After fighting with it for a little while I'm reasonably happy with it.

Cheers Guys its easy enough if you got patients! Have a try on something pretty flat to start off. It's the curved stuff that tests you.

I got my vinyl from Underground Graphics on Ebay. Really quick and posting it!
