Engine connect – Bits arrived in the post !

Demon Tweeks box arrived with my replacement parts yesterday and also Ray at Marine Fabrications drilled the exhaust and manifold pipes so busy night last night !

  • Drained the W80 oil out of the engine and replaced with straight 100
  • Re-wirelocked it all up
  • Fitted the Exhaust Gas Temp (EGT) probes in both rear manifold pipes – nice fit
  • Re fitted both rear manifolds – probe and cable runs look good and clear of cowl and bits
  • Checked the oil injectors fit in the exhaust outlet pipes, again looks good
  • Oiled the Aeroquip fittings and re fitted the oil cooler underneath
  • Routed and trimmed the two braided oil pipes away from exhaust and through to the Temperature controlled filter unit (TOCA)
  • Drilled the new ply mounting plate for the smoke oil remote filler
