turbo drain pipe

Post by peter freeman » Wed Jun 26, 2019 11:37 am

I seem to remember that the turbo to sump drain pipe is no longer available and I think mine has started to leak the odd drop of oil. So what do you TI people do in its place - not had a look to see what it is like or how it is fixed in place yet just picked up by my MOT man yesterday - not a big enough leak to cause the car to fail its MOT just a irritation at present.

Peter
I've had drain pipe issues leak a couple of times, and neither time it was actually the rubber 90deg pipe itself. It was either the turbo external core seals and 2nd time was the banjo hard pipe into the core leaking.

If it is merely the rubber pipe, straight pipe will flatten if bent, so would need either a moulded 90deg or a wire reinforced straight that wont kink under.

Normal silicone doesn't really like long time contact with oil or the heat around the core, but Samco produce lined silicone that's oil resistant, and do a silver jacket to protect against heat.

Alternatively, take the original to a hydraulic specialist and they may have a 90deg moulded rubber of same diameter

Thanks for that reply - is it possible to get the pipe off with the turbo in place or is it a major job.

You could probably make a new one from straight rubber tubing and a couple of copper water-pipe bends and copper tube from local DIY.

Copper pipe I have in quantity in the loft and a pipe bender so that's not a problem Trevor - getting at it looks like the problem

It's more complex the just a 90 and they are or were available new. I think I have a few spare here if you struggle with the usual suspects.

Regards access, I'm sure I replaced one "in situ" But easiness depends a lot on direction clamping screws are pointing!

Time I think to spend some more money with the traders - they will not be wasted even if that's not where the oil is coming from they will be added to my spares. It will be normal for me if the screws are the wrong way round Trevor - its called sods law.

Not fond of RPW after they did a "dirty" on me - use them as a last resort

Can be changed in situ, bit of a faff, as engine mount is in the way. If you can get a new one, I'd stick the knife thru the old one to make life easier

Phoned GW this morning and they have nil stock they did however give me the reliant part number 222749. Then I phoned Nigel who has them in stock - original Reliant ones and he says they should be ok providing that the Turbo has not been replaced by a different type - don't know about that but will find out no doubt. two ordered as we have two 1800ti's and sods law says if one fails then the other will not be far behind it.
