    Exhaust Manifold?

    Yep have to flush it all out ,then keep bleeding all the nipples till the new stuff comes through,pretty easy to spot as the silicone fluid is a purple colour I have the master cylinder off as well to clean it out and replace the seals,typical though now the weather as changed to take it a big run( no wet gear)

    Exhaust Manifold?

    I've just bought today some top silicone fluid to put in very high boiling point and some decent heat proof sleeving for the brake pipes,I did buy off eBay a manifold and exhaust (s/s) pretty cheap and tried for about all of 10 minutes to get it on,getting half through the side panel then gave up ,thinking now I could have fitted it by removing the master cylinder plus manifold studs,I resold it on ebay,wish I hadn't now! Hopefully change of fluid should help as this Automec as boiling point of 260 °C

    Exhaust Manifold?

    Posted yesterday about my brake fluid boiling because of the manifold running close to the master cylinder,(not the normal manifold)do standard pinto manifold s fit ?ie rs2000 ? Or are the robin hood manifolds made to measure, I know the top of manifolds the same it's just where it goes through the side panel,mine at the minute goes over the side panel and then down.

    Brake Booster Removal

    That's probably the best option,the master cylinder that's on the car now as two connections on the (looking from the front of engine) r/ hand side and one underneath that goes straight between the manifold, me mate sad it looks like a transit van master cylinder.

    Brake Booster Removal

    It's got a little bit of heat proof tape on but it as come from China so it's maybe not doing any thing,will have to try this better stuff.

    Brake Booster Removal

    Cheers,I've got a brake pipe kit in me shed some where,just been out again in it brakes great to start with then with in 10 mins brakes gone,when I got back from the m o t early on I took cap off the reservoir and the fluid was near boiling.

    Brake Booster Removal

    Hi I've got a s7 running sierra 1983 set up,because the exhaust manifold goes over the side and down (not down and out via round hole in the side panel)the brake master cylinder is only just clearing the manifold and one brake pipe goes between the manifold, which up to a few weeks ago wasn't a problem until the warm weather came now it's boiling the brake fluid plus m o t advised it needs altering.as anyone fitted a remote servo/done away with the brake booster/moved the cylinder? If so which is the best to go fo. Any help ??

    Hi running capilers at the back(pretty sure standard sierra),not sure on the ET number,wheels came off a caterham, whether they use a smaller caliper,Just got a pair of 10mm spacers to try to see if it clears,so (weather permitting) will have another look over the weekend and try to get some pictures
