I have just removed the VVC hydraulic timing unit to re-seal it as it was leaking oil. I removed the 3 elcetrical connections colour coded black, blue & brown. Like an idiot I didnt make a note of which one goes where.

If any one out there has a VVC can you please dash outside, open the boot. look at the right hand side of the engine, immediately behind the oil filler cap is the plenum chamber with VVC marked on the top. Between that and the head rocker cover at the right hand end is an alloy unit secured in place with 3 x 10mm bolts. This is the VVC unit. It has an electical connector on top and two on its left end. Please tell me which colour electrical plug goes where.

Can only see one plug on my hydraulic control unit, its black with green/brown and blue wires and plugs into a connector with a brass hexagon. There's a white plug with yellow & grey/black wires goes into the cam box centre somewhere (maybe injectors) and another black plug going to the MAP sensor.

Thanks for looking. If you look where the V V C is on the plenum chamber, opposite one of the V's is an oil pipes coming out from the plenum chamber to the head rocker cover. I f you look carefully each side of this oil pipe down between the plenum chamber you should see a coloured plug, one ach side, one will be brown, one will be blue. You can only jsut see the tips of these plugs but they can fairly easily be seen. I need to know which colour is to the left (passenger side) of theat oil pipes and which colour is to its right.

Thanks BALROG your a gem.

I only purchased this beutifull looking car at the weekend. It is a yellow Trophy (apparently only only 125 of them in the UK in yellow ??).

An oil leak had been repaired on the 17/4/07 by an MG specialist at a cost of £90 to the previous owner.

I noticed oil dripping from the engine and tracked it down to this unit. I have removed it and re-sealed it. With your helpfull advice I will now go and start it up and hope it has cured the leak. If not I will have to buy a new seal set at £22.

Thanks for your help.

Ian

You're most welcome, feel doubly pleased helping out a fellow Yellow Tropyite.

Hope you enjoy it, and easy with that loud pedal coming out of sharp bends in the wet.

IIRC there were well over 1K Trophys produced, not the 500 that is sometimes claimed and given most of these seem to be TY or TB, I would think closer to 300 would be a more realistic figure for TY Trophys........... still a VERY nice 'F' though

Now how did you manage to get that shot CJ, can't see those plugs on mine without a mirror. Guess either the air plenum is a bit lower on the TF or the whole engine.

Must be the plenum.
