Re: Injector heat shield washers

I believe you may be losing prime from the injection pump itself. There is MANY places where you can have air leaking into the pump. I'm not saying it's impossible, but I would think that is highly unlikely. But perhaps we should entertain this idea as this has been going on a long time! With the i...

What's your clearance, Clarence?

Did main bearings. Measured clearances and those washers. They all checked fine. Clearance on the thrust is back within spec as well. The feeling of turning a crank after checking it is oddly satisfying. It seems to be a favorite for people :lol: with that one spot of resistance. Not sure why some p...

Re: Heater hose route

That Y bolts on to the take air intake manifold underneath the cleaner. There should be two m6 x 1.0 with 10mm heads that fasten it down. There should also be a metal band that straps the hoses together to keep them from chafing.

Sorry I don't have pictures.

Engineers don't put stuff in for fun. It's probably to promote proper airflow

Re: Any tips? valve cover gasket

A drop off super glue in each corner helps. I personally use spray on high tack. Works great and smells like cherries!!

Re: Replacing clutch, advice?

A few weeks ago when I pulled my trans it helps if you have someone on the top while you're down below both prying. make sure that tail mount is completely removed.

Re: Vacuum during brake bleeding?

I am pretty sure that gravity bleeding will not remove any air in the system because it will rise in the lines as fast as the fluid drains out. Interesting you point that out. I could see that as a problem. I personally have never experienced this problem on all the vehicles I have done this on, in...

Re: Vacuum during brake bleeding?

I always gravity bleed. Be takes a while. But if you crack the line and let it bleed for a while making sure you keep fluid topped off it's free. I usually do it while I'm doing something else at the same time.
