Re: EGT TEMPS ON 4.8 PETROL PATROL

And here is a slightly conflicting viewpoint: https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/technical-stuff/135027-maximum-temperature-exhaust-gas.html According to that, 900 should probably be considered as a maximum. More importantly, high EGT's may point to a lean-running engine. If you are not already measurin...

Re: EGT TEMPS ON 4.8 PETROL PATROL

Re: EGT TEMPS ON 4.8 PETROL PATROL

Yeah this is a bit tricky. As David points out, the whole point of the exercise is to protect the engine, and this is done by keeping the temperatures of the cylinder head and piston crown below the temperature where they go through a change in cristaline structure. The materials in petrol and diese...

Re: Should I be concerned? 2” OME=90mm !!!

I doubt you need to be particularly worried. The rear end doesn't get caster correction, it only gets extended sway bar brackets, which you say are already fitted, and an extension bracket for the brake bias valve.

Re: The Bigger The Better Trailing arms

Dankie Tijmen. Ek het nie die nodige gereedskap om die punte van die pyp (waar hy op die busse vasswys) voor te berei nie. Ek is wel bereid om bestaande lower control arms te versterk soos op 'n ander draad verduidelik, maar sal self instem dat joune waarkynlik beter is. Prys is R1200/stel vir die v...
