If it's only just been fitted, try a good pair of grips - but the 2 nut method is a little kinder ;)

Lovely day all,

before I head back out to the garage to tackle my two nuts...could some one point out where on the block the oil feed pipe connects...i saw numerous threaded holes but could not seat it in any of them...a picture would be nice if possible

Can't help on the exact location. But have you remembered the 90 degree brass adaptor between block and pipe ?

humm... i don't remember seeing such an item when i last went through the car\turbo bits...but that will explain why i struggled...looking through the red manual ..i think i know what i am looking for- cant recall it being on the engine block ...so it must be in one of the box bits...


I thank you sir

don't lose it, its a weird size, NPT from block to some odd size that reliant found down the back of a cupboard for the hose end

i have screwed it into the block , so it should stay put- i was trying to screw in it and orientate it as you have shown - but it screws tight pointing upwards- I guess i can use some plumbers PTFE tape to help it tighten ( is it suitable?)

I managed to remove the offending turbo stud without too much trouble

I also need to remove two exhaust studs from the head- so will tackle that tomorrow :)
and about to order a set of these
studs have been reassured by the seller they fit they CA18ET
i can now see how difficult reinstalling all the turbo bits are!- i did try to bolt up the ( existing)water banjos as an excerise...-- but then gave up after about an hour-

Yes S13 studs do fit the S12. You may find that the threads have corroded or been stripped inside the alloy of the head, so be very careful when reinstalling and tightening. If any are stripped, you can easily helicoil them. Length can also be an issue. If the lower ones are too long you'll struggle to get the nuts onto them in the tight space.

Upgrading to flexible water hoses will make fitting an awful lot easier.

My Sabre Ti thread has quite a few photos of the helicoil process and fitting of the manifold, turbo and flexi pipes. As has my SS1ti thread.

Good day all,

thank you Steve...I've a lot of learning material to go through!...I have been reading your ( and others) threads repeatedly...but even so having an experienced enthusiasts reply to questions I kind of know the answers to...just gives that extra ' it will be alright.. pat on the back' . So thanks to all in advance to whom take the time to respond to us mechanical newbies..with our trivial questions...just proves how fantastic value for money the membership is :D :D :D

Generally speaking there's no such thing as a daft question and at the end of the day that's what the Club community is all about :D

Good day all

I thought i should stop enjoying the 1600 ...there's always tomorrow ( Warwick Retro car show :D..anyone? )...

even though i have the braided cooling hoses and new banjo water attachments..I still wanted to see if i could re-attach the original hard pipes..

one nearest the engine block went (loose) on within five mins!! :shock: :D

Image

the other is still giving a fight - but i cant align it due to the proximity of the waste gate bracket bolt..

Image

there is no clearance at all!..the banjo housing is in contact as i try to align the banjo bolt-hole

Next week the fight will continue...

You may find that you can rotate the inlet housing a little to gain clearance (with quite some leverage of course!) . It's only fixed to the central bearing housing (the bit with the water cooling) by a circlip on these turbos.
