Title: Why oh Why?
Post by: WozzA on 16.03. 2015 00:27
Why do I torcher my self?   *dunno*
Just spent the best part of 3 days pulling my Monobloc to pieces,
cleaning, checking parts, checking for leaks in the inlet, replacing jets,
& re assembling all to try to eliminate a back fire / explosion in the exhaust.. All to no glory..
Going over the previous steps again & again just to make sure I didn't overlook something.. ?

I contacted Musky via eMail & advised him of the systems of the fault & asked his advice..

His reply... Your looking for air leaks at the wrong end! Either the pipes exiting the head or the header pipe/muffler joint. Maniseal is your friend.

Yep... sure enough... After my previous clutch problem, In my haste I had forgotten to seal the headers into the head...   *problem*
Problem solved...  Thanx again Musky   *wink2*

Wozza;

Look upon it as character building- you are becoming one hell of a character!
