Thinking about the ForkenSwift last night, had a brainwave:
Is a TPS just a potentiometer? Anyone know what the ohm rating is?
Seems like its range of motion is going to roughly match what I need for the ForkenSwift's potbox. (I did hack a potentiometer solution using gears, but I'm thinking ahead to replacement of that hack should it break/wear out).
I know for Hondas the voltage at idle is .45V (and below) and WOT is 4.5V+
The TPS has three wires: Ground, +5V and output (anywhere from .45V to 4.5V)
to measure the Ohms: The signal wire is the middle one so one lead there and Pin 3 is the +5V feed (pin 3 should be the one furthest right when the locking tab on the TPS is straight up) just measure resistance at no throttle and full throttle to get the Ohms reading.
Some of this is going off of memory WOT = very close to no resistance and closed throttle should be around 450 Ohms
