Ah crap!!!!! sucked tights into the engine lol

Hey guys, new to this forum anways here goes.... Ive mofidied the throttle cover to a fiat cinqeucento 900cc to fit a sporting 1.1 throttle head. so i did not have a filter at the time so i decided to use a part of some old tights i had lying around lol so i fitted them on, to stop any bugs and what not from entering the throttle head.

Just today my car was acting right werid, it was like somthing was holding it back while driving. so i checked under the engine and the peice of tights that ive used looked like they have been sucked into the throttle head lol, its running fine now but should i be worried????

any help would be great

FYI the TBs are the same on both engines.

Yes, very worried. I mean, what are you going to wear now that your tights are circulating around the inside of your Cinqs engine?

And probably burnt to a crisp and expelled through the tailpipe.

As long as it doesn't get stuck around a valve as a lump should be OK.

The only way to be sure is to lift the head.

Re: Ah crap!!!!! sucked tights into the engine lol

i know a lad who had a goped and one of his mates put a condom on the airfilter and it got sucked in the engine luckyily it didnt make it to the cylinder as its only 22.5cc anyway so it would have filled the entire bore and f**ked the engline was funny at the time tho

And let that be a lesson to all:
Don't be tempted to use tights for an air filter.

Re: Ah crap!!!!! sucked tights into the engine lol

I had a nova sr once that chucked its alternator belt off along a road late one night. So i replaced it with some tights ands it worked!, for about half a mile till they flew off, got sucked into the crank pulley and snapped my cambelt! Needed a whole new engine because of tights !!
