Hi Chaps,

More hot air! Finally got my exhaust sorted thumbsup This is only the 4th one so not too bad wack

Just to recap, the first one was the Dansk SS twin outlet, which I installed before the 3.8 rebuild and turned out to be no good for the new engine. The 2nd was a Fabspeed twin-out which was droning more than a Zeppelin. That one went and was replaced by a Fabspeed RS system, much better suited to the RSR engine but still droning unbearably between 2.5 - 3.0k revs.

In despair earlier this year I contacted Stuart at http://www.aas-exhausts.co.uk who came highly recommended and he took a good look and gave me the bad news I was expecting. The exhaust gas from each set of headers were meeting in the silencer and not exiting the pipes efficiently (at the particular revs) causing the droning. He also thought the oval tips wouldn't help force the gases away from the car and he new recommended round tips. And now the worse news, he was fully booked for 6 months frustrated

And here we are 6 months later, I picked my car up today and the car not only sounds incredible but is going like an absolute rocket. Stuart had made a new silencer rerouting the gasses separately so they exited cleanly. The new tips look great, the are angled away from each other slightly, which also helps the acoustics.





We have kept the Fabspeed headers and heat exchangers which are a work of art in themselves.



So that's it, we're sorted. Strange thing though, the car pulls away much better from a standstill and seems much more docile whereas before it needed coaxing on the throttle to avoid stalling which I'd always put down to the aggressive RSR cams.

I was in good company, here is Simon's beautiful hillclimber again getting lightness added for his competitions.



"Lightness?", I hear you say. Yup, lightness! In the form of a bespoke tungsten exhaust.

Hmmmm Question Oh b****r ! Wish I hadn't been told that! wack

Cheers for now,
Paul

Hi All,

After the yesterday's success of the new exhaust I was talking again this morning to Stuart from AAS who was interested to see how I felt about it and I mentioned to him the ease of which the car now pulls away. Stuart confirmed that the free-flow release of the exhaust gas will have that effect and that I will expect to achieve another 15 - 20 bhp as a Brucie Bonus. Happy days! Cool

Cheers,
Paul

Hi Chaps,

Quote:

It definitely does have more go but Nick (Redtek) thinks 15 - 20 bhp is probably optimistic and I would tend to agree for just an exhaust, however in the interests of science Nick is going to dyno it next year (when it's in for a service) on the same rolling road so we'll be able to compare with the original figures. It does feel a lot better though, so possibly the previous exhaust was holding it back a tad and I'll approach it with an open mind. I've opened her up today with a run on the Helmsley TT (see North Yorks Run Out) and I've fallen in love all over again Cute

Thanks Ian, they certainly know what they're doing. See you on the N. Yorks. run and you can judge for yourself. Which car are you bringing? Thumb

My experience of the The Lion Inn at Blakey Ridge is that people don't fly past, it's like a magnet Grin See you on the 9th John!

Hi Chaps,

Nightmare! Wink

On Sunday when I was out doing a recky for our North Yorks run on the 9th my alternator sensor warning light came on, naturally I stopped immediately.

Fortunately it wasn't serious, the belt was still intact apart from some superficial marks on the surface (see photo) but the little spinning wheel on the sensor/sender was nowhere to be seen. Which meant the wheel's spindle was now resting on the belt. Being a good boy scout I had some insulating tape and I was able to tape up the wheel arm to it's body out of harms way.



I wonder where the wheel is Dont know Probably lying in the bottom of the well.

The new part ordered came on Tuesday from OPC Newcastle for £75.38 inc. VAT and free delivery, bless you Michael thumbsup



To remove the alternator sensor/sender unit you will need a 5mm allen key, a small flat headed screwdriver, a cloth which I advise you to lay under the unit so that the allen bolt doesn't fall into the well or you will have endless hours of fun trying to fish it out Grin



Here we can see the little flange on with the wheel is centred but the flange has straightened out setting the wheel free frustrated



First take off the connector by removing the spring clip with a flat headed screwdriver.



Carefully loosen the allen bolt, it is only threaded in about 5mm so only a few turns but it might be stiff to get started and there's not much room so watch your knuckles.



The unit is held in place by two plastic locating pins on the back of the unit and a single allen bolt.

A couple of top tips here, firstly give the wheel spindle (and the bolt) a squirt with WD40 as they are apt to squeak in time or worse, seize up, which will causes flat spots on the wheel. The second tip is to tape up the wheel arm which will help you locate the unit easier, remove the tape with a blade when it's fitted.








Remove your tape and security blanket, connect it up again and fire her up!

About 30 mins. approx. for this little job. Now to find the missing wheel, Simon reckons he finds all sorts in that little well when he's taking engines out Grin

Cheers,
Paul

Excellent repair guide Paul, well done!

Hang on a minute, what is that on the fan blades and cowling? Could it actually be dirt? Surely not on Black Betty......

Cheers, Keith.

Well Paul, I put that down to an appalling lack of maintenance Grin
Now when was the last time I changed my oil Question

Glad you boy scouted the fix though, I have often looked at my one and wandered when that was going to ruin my day.

Pleased to be of service Mondrian Thumb

If your light keeps coming on but the wheel is intact it probably means the wheel is on it's way out, possibly either a flat spot or it's sticking on it's spindle. If it's the latter you could try a squirt of WD40 if you're accurate enough but don't get it on the belt.

Hi Chief,

They are not built to last I'm afraid, it's the 3rd on my car. I have looked at this from Clewett Engineering (they make the PMO ITB's), it's a more substantial conversion with or without A\C.

What a mine of information this thread is, thanks Paul! Thumb

(Would be great if it had an index with page numbers though) Floor

Fixed a side window that came off the runner (rusty) yesterday. Next diy job is to sort the noisy rear spoiler motor...... and this is before its paint restoration and the brakes, suspension, interior not to mention the engine!

You mentioned slippery slope, more like downhill slalom!

Cheers
Mike

Thanks Mike, it's a mine alright, there's enough to sink a ship Grin

I must get organised ha!

Yes but you're on your 2nd car already what

If the runner was rusty did you check the bottoms of your doors? Enjoy the ride.

Cheers,

Bottom of door was fine although full of rust 'gravel' but fortunately the drain holes wern't too blocked. Now all nice and clean..... very difficult to polish in there though! Floor
Window runner was lying in the bottom, mishaped and in a real state but straightened it up and refitted for now. Will replace both next month when the car is stripped for repaint.
Exciting times ahead! Thumb
