Default Jetcat 120 conversion to Xicoy ECU

I recently converted a Jetcat P120 to Xicoy ECU. The engine had been damaged and did not have any ECU. I managed to get hold of the starter motor pod and intake front cover. I decided to do a similar conversion of the Jetcat engine to the recent conversion of the EVO Booster 90. In this case however I was able to fit an external plug, but I put the valves under the cover on a piece of glass fibre. This was a simple job to do and I glued the Multiplex plug and the RJ45 socket in place with Acrylic glue. The external thermocouple was missing and easily replaced. I changed the starter motor to the usual 280bb motor. As with the EVO conversion I fitted a Xicoy hall sensor under the cover.

The ecu needed a ring magnet let into the nose of the compressor.

Once all the connections had been checked I tried to start it. After a minor problem with the kero plug all was well. The first start was nice and slow and very controlled and a non event.

Before anyone asks the question I have a commercial balancing machine and the engine was balanced before running it.

The multiplex connectors have some tags bent below the board and the socket is glued with acrylic glue

The RJ45 socket has its connections underneath the board and is held down lithesome acrylic glue
