General Chat / Re: gay campus
« on: 11:00, Sat 06 March 2010 »
Hi Matt i have just finished a project of the same sort i had a 86 phase 1 which was badly rusted so picked up a campus and followed with the conversion, i can confirm that the gt complete rear axle just bolts on to the campus with x4 19mm nuts, you can put the gt brake compensator on but the problem i had is my campus did not have a brake compensator in the first place with no brackets so i just plumed in new brake lines from the servo at the front straight to the rear calipers and then will put inline those adjustable race compensators and set it up myself, it wont be pressure loading but i can then fine adjust myself.
The calipers i believe are the same with the standard gt discs the problem ive got is my campus pad carriers are not wide enough for my 285mm disc which are 28mm thick i did order gt carriers from cgb motorsport but they were the same as the campus so trying to overcome this myself but you will not have this problem if you are using the standard discs.
The handbrake cable will just bolt straight on no problem.
If you are putting a gt engine in or converting to a turbo you will have to sort the fueling out,
this means you got two choices, first if you would like the reserve tank like the gt has you will need the reserve fuel pump and all the wiring leading up to the front of the car.
Second choice is to leave it as is without the reserve tank like what i did and which makes life a lot easier and you dont have to plum in extra breather and fuel pipes.
You have to do this if you want it running right, you will need to change the fuel pumo which is under the tank to a bosch gt pump and change the fuel filter while your there then trace the feed and return fuel pipes from the pump and tank to the front which will be located to the drivers side there you will put a fuel pressure regulator either a gt one or an aftermarket adjustable one doesn't matter you just dont have to tinker with gt one just bolt and go. Look for a breather pipe which goes of to the passenger side from the tank, just blank these off.

Thats the major important things i think off now but feel free to ask any questions.

I must also say check your alternator and make sure you have a good battery.

Hey just to let u know I've just converted my campus to a gt and getting the same problem I haven't had chance to look deep into it myself but belive it to be a wiring fault, when idling mine sits between o and 2 aswell. If  I find out before will defintley put a post up but I know I can't do anything for a least a week. Good luck.

Hi there you need to make sure you are getting the main three things it needs to start
1. Fuel
simple way to eliminate is to do it in steps but you need a good battery and a working starter there is no point trying it bump starting the car.
First get a 19mm I think and put it on the bottom flywheel left and side and turn it by hand with the spanner you should feel a good bite at a point of compression the harder the better, it might be hard to tell if never done it before.
Next pull the king lead out of the dizzy cap and hold about a couple of centimeters away and get someone to turn the key and crank it over whilst checking for spark.
Lastly just undo the 13mm nut on the base of the carb and drain the fuel out, tighten back up turn the car over and undo the nut again to check for fuel.
This should find out what your problem is,
also if you have no spark just check all your fuses it could be one in there blown.

Hope this helps !!!

Renault 5 GT Turbo / 1.4 campus to 1.4 gt brake help !
« on: 21:58, Sat 05 September 2009 »
Hi all how are we doing ?  I'm currently at the end of my conversion now only last few bits to do and one of them is the front brake calipers, the problem I have is I only have the 1.4 campus calipers which don't fit because my disks are too thick 22-23mm, could I  grind out the calipers to make them fit don't look much to it or would this not be wise ?

Right the valve your on about is a one way valve that stops back pressure, when this is all removed it is classed as a cup mod here is all the details on it....

Overview of the cup mod
The cup mod is simply changing the arrangement of the anciallary pipework around the carbarettor and the turbo actuator.

The purpose of the cup mod is to enable the turbo to produce full boost quicker than it does normally.

The name "cup mod" is derived from the "Renault 5 Cup" races back in the 80's, there was a series of modications that would be done to a GTTurbo before racing. This mod was one of them.

How to do it

   1. Start by locating the turbo elbow, on the rear is a metal union connecting to a rubber pipe. Undo the nut and remove this. Put a suitable block into the turbo elbow (a wheel bolt works well)
   2. Follow this pipe to the top of the carb, and remove the associated piperwork from the car.
   3. Remove all of the pipework between the top of the carb and the actuator
   4. Run a single pipe of pipework from the base of the carb to the front port of the actuator
   5. Block the top two carb top ports
   6. Leave the rear actuator port open

hope this helps !!!!!!!!!1
