Re: Injector or valve clearance?

Guys - if I want to use 10mm stud, which size do I have to drill? With drill 8.5mm and then make thread to 10mm ?

Arrow Re: Injector or valve clearance?

For normal pitch M10 (which is 1,5 mm) yes, about 8,5 mm hole is OK.

Finaly done: 8.5 hole and 10 stud. Threading was really easy to this material. So today I'll complete car and we will see how (and if) this procedure (new gaskets and exhaust manifold sanding to flatness) helped to my sound problem. Head surface is dirty on this photo but after thar I gently sanded also exhaust exits and everyting around

Re: Injector or valve clearance?

So my action helped - "plastic" noise during acceleration isn't there now, that's great info for me. Engine is also more silent overall. High ticking on hot idle is still there, but sometimes it disappears for a while...but this is topic for another discussion. For now I'm happy and finaly I can check other things on this car

Re: Injector or valve clearance?

This topic should be about valve clearance, but ended with broken stud :-) So I'll continue here:-) Today I found small exhaust leak on silencer - thanx to my golden hands - I sprayed silencer 2 months ago with zinc spray, so I saw black leak on it easy. I applied Bosal paste on exhausts. During drying I sanded all rusty parts of lower chassis, especialy arms, and painted it with anti-corrosion agent. Tomorrow I'll aply black spray on it

Re: Injector or valve clearance?

Silencers have a little round weep hole to let the moisture out. Wasn't that was it?

Caught me out first time I saw it too.

Re: Injector or valve clearance?

No no, this was made by corrosion and when I putted rag into exhaust end, I heard leak, felt it by hand and saw big black carbon spot there. So this is fixed too, next will be front discs+pads replacement (Brembo), I loosened all screws before for easy&quick replacement. Plus check rear drum diameter & putting little bit of vaseline behind jaws (they are squeaking during brake pedal release)
