  1. I'm no expert by a long way, hopefully somone in the know will come along soon.
  2. Is it carbs? Ifso I assume psi if injection then that will be bar.
  3. I was told by omex that you set the pressure, within a certain range and the carbs/itbs and engine is basically set up to that. Mines very rich at the moment but is rather that than lean.
  4. My fingers are still covered!
  5. It's sikaflex, says sikabond and sikaflex on the tube, it's the proper stuff but the inside isn't setting at the moment. It's about 15mm thick after I whacked it all on. I'll check tomoz and see if it's set.
  6. I stuff I've used to bond my cycle wings came in a yellow sausage packet, it doesn't appear to state what type it is. It's nearly 24hrs since I fitted the wings and it doesn't appear to have fully set yet, it's holding them fine but I'd not risk driving yet. Does anyone know what type I have used from the description? Thanks
  7. I've sealed it without to much bother and I'll double check today now I'm sure the sealant has set. I looked up feeds and returns and there appears to just be one feed on the inlet side in the middle.
  8. Thought so, how can I tell if it's a return or feed though?
  9. I just shouldn't have let my brother near it! I put silicone in there and dipped the stud in it put it back on and it's all fine, took quite a while for the oil to burn off but it's sealed and seems fine.
  10. Just read on passion ford that the part it's broken into is a low pressure oil return, sound about right? Oil resistant sealant it is!
  11. I didn't even think of the possible bit floating about! It's an oil chamber! Won't find it's way anywhere harmful will it?
  12. The stud is the original ford one so It can't have been to long. I can only assume it has been put in the wrong way at some point when the manifold has been on and off. It's longer at one end. No way am I buying a new head at this stage, I was thinking plenty of high temp silicone on the bolt and maybe some k-seal? It's not a high pressure leak.
  13. I saw today I have water coming from here on my crate blacktop! The original stud is in there and has never had anything else in there. I undid it and ran the engine and there's a flow of coolant, nothing to fast but the engine wasn't up to temp. It's got a crack or some damage in the water jacket I assume? Ideas?
  14. I was planning to attach them to the existing subframe. Which is attached to the monocoque. It's just the wishbones I'm looking to replace.
