Re: Wires' 12a Turbo

is this the right inlet gasket? it doesn't look as if it's sealing the EGR port and looking at your inlet manifold when you tore it down there looks like there's blowby. Yeah, good spot. 71-85 and the 71-73 gasket are very similar, the latter the better match perhaps? https://www.atkinsrotary.com/s...

Re: Wires' 12a Turbo

I think maybe its from an FD?
Was supplied by the engine builder, who knows his stuff so it should be suitable.

Re: Wires' 12a Turbo

So turbo sealed checked, nothing came through. Replaced the turbo to manifold gasket as well as it was looking a little worse for wear. Copper based sealant applied to every surface, everything put back together for the umpteenth time... and its still blowing :| I took extra time to ensure it went o...

Re: Wires' 12a Turbo

So still getting some exhaust leaks, stripped most of it back down at the weekend to apply some copper rtv, I noticed some oil residue on the intake, only on the two outer paths. The turbo has very marginal play on the bearing, but I would expect some, no signs of the fans touching the housing. Woul...

Re: Wires' 12a Turbo

So putting everything back together and found out the metal fuel pipe going into the fuel rail has a tiny leak, must have been bent.

Manifold has been skimmed, was almost a few mm out at one end, time to get it back on...
