So just fitted the 'kit'.
- The kit comprises 4 nicely machined brass sockets -- washers -- nuts -- screws.
- I removed the arm I'd cleaned up before ( disconnect the glow plugs to make it easier ).
Then cut off it's plastic sockets ( ulp! Point of no return ).
- The brass parts would not fit into the holes straight off, so had to gently drill then a gnats hair
- Then countersunk hole number 3 ( carefully! ).
- Attached all 4 brass sockets - using loctite on the nuts and bolts.
- While loctite went off, I re-cleaned the top of the manifold and swirl flap tops with petrol. Let that dry and then applied WD 40 to the swirl flap tops.
- The the harder bit - putting the arm back in place. This was harder then before as the brass sockets are a bit taller than the
originals and clearance was tighter.
- Line up all the swirl flap nipples so the are in the same position as number 3 ( which won't move as it is directly attached to the actuator motor.
- Then align the arm so the sockets are directly above the nipples. This is easier said than done, and to help me I made two tools - basically 8 inch coat hanger wires with a squared hook on them to manipulate the arm.
- When they were lined up I used a small socket on an extension shaft to press down on number 3 socket, then the others.
They should locate with a re-assuring 'click' as they push into place.
Job done - all tested and working! I wonder how long they last?
