MattV posted a topic in Tech TalkHi All, To avoid further hi-jacking Julie's raceline water rail fitting thread further, thought I'd put this into a new thread. So my car decided to deposit all its coolant on the floor the other day, and suspecting a dodgy thermostat housing I've ordered the Raceline water rail. Whilst waiting for it to arrive, decided to strip out the existing set up This looks like the sender unit for the temp gauge in the dash and looks pretty corroded/knackered, so I think this might be the cause of my leak. Everything else looks fine. Does this thermostat look right? I figured that whilst cold it should be sealing the coolant path but there's a gap of around 1cm? Raceline recommend getting rid of the expansion tank that I'm currently running, but I note that when @Julie Hall - AO Representative, Peak District AO fitted her water rail it was kept? Image supplied by Raceline is below As you can see they're running the over flow from the 'stat housing into an overflow bottle down near the headlight. This system looks like a simpler set up and would reduce potential future failure points, so I'm throwing this to the WSCC experts - keep the expansion tank on the scuttle, or set up as per raceline? Thanks All! Mat
This may be a stupid question but, I have a Westfield V8 (4ltr range rover block) which started leaking oil somewhere towards the front following an oil change. It has a Mocal remote filter. The leak is bad enough to need attention so I'm going to take the front off to gain access, the stupid questions are, why following an oil change? and are there any "usual suspects" for leak points? as its all a bit mucky at the moment its hard to see where the leak(s) may be but I'd guess at right at the front and possibly something to do with the remote filter. Any pointers before I get the front off will be gratefully received.
Hi guys, Really need some help. I have stripped the fuel tank out to fit a new roll bar. Also had the engine out to fix a gearbox leak. Put it all back together and when I turned the fuel pump on fuel was squirting out everywhere around the carbs. Thought it was some loose jubilees etc. checked them and all ok. Turned the fuel pump on again and managed to pin point where the fuel is leaking from, pic below. Could it be fuel pressure? The carbs weren't leaking before. There's a regulator prior to the carbs, looks pretty old as does the fuel pump. Just a bit lost as it was all fine prior to being taken apart. Cheers
Hi, Some advice please? It seems like my sump is leaking from the gasket on my Red-top engine. It has a cast shallow sump and looks like a cork gasket fitted (although I cant be certain without a closer look - cant be certain what baffle is has fitted either) I would appreciate some advice on the best way to go when I come to fix it 1. Cork gasket(s) - with/without baffle plate! 2. Rubber gasket slotted to accept the baffle plate 3. Gasket and baffle plate combined Recommendations on goods suppliers also welcome Sealant/no sealant? Thanks
