Ok sounds like you and me in a similar boat but thanks for the info about the perc fan.

Obviously need to look elsewhere for my cooling issue.  No needle bounce but it sits at 3/4 quarters constantly and would like it to be lower.

Air in the system?
Faulty Thermostat?
Crap in the rad?

Mantasrb your images I assume are those of your engine bay?

Can you help me out with a problem I have with the pipework and a device that seems to need an electrical connection but the wiring is not there.

Your top image shows a pipe that I believe comes from the perculator fan and then joins the air intake for the carb.  The pipe connects into an electric device that is fixed to the bulkhead just in front of the heater fan.  What is it and if its not connected does it affect the cooling operation?

Hi mate,

I'm not 100% on what it actually is- this is my first r5 and i'm still learning! People do away with the perc fan setup completely so can't imagine it's essential..  It's a 2 pin plug the connects to it as i recall.. Sorry i cant be of more help!!

There ya go :)

have you had the timing done? also via rotor arm points to plug on the right timing of the pistons
if its standard setup with group a or modified carb it will  tick over and bottom end running will be  shit,flooding to much fuel in...


Timing is done yes. I'm not sure if it's a modified carb, it was on when i'm bought it. I've got a t2/t25 hybrid fitted so it may well be.  How do I fix it to run right?

Thanks!

Renault 5 GT Turbo / How to guide to changing heater matrix?

Okay so i've done the above steps and it's still running like a bag of spanners.. now what? i'm getting to the end of my tether with this!!!

Right. Thought this was a vac pipe issue as wasn't 100% on the setup.  Having since learned that my vac pipe setup is rght, I'm left wondering which course of action to take next.

I've had a few suggestions - check the idle jet, check the pipework for splits, check the fuel inlet filter, check the valve clearances.  I will carry out the above check tomorrow after work.  Anything else I can look at as I want to get it out of the road!!!

The engine is freshly built as is the carb. There is also a new mixture screw which i've been told the screw all the way in, then 3 to 3 + 1/4 turns out.

Thanks guys :)

Forgot to mention that the turbo actuator only has one pipe on it.

I don't have the pipe with the one way valve that i've seen on some pictures either - should i?

Hello all,

Could really do with the standard setup for the vac pipes on my turbo!

Have searched the threads and the internet and now i'm going slightly mad!!

Could someone please provide photos or diagrams and a walkthrough for which pipe goes where!  If anyone would like to ring me and talk me through it over the phone, that would be awesome.

Thank you in advance

Renault 5 GT Turbo / Hose indentification
« on: 08:53, Sun 05 August 2012 »
Mornin all,

Got my new hose kit here and with the exception of a few, i'm struggling to work out where they all fit!  Does anyone have a picture identifying each of the hoses and where they go? I've been browsing the 'your cars' section in hope of finding pictures that show what I need to know but so haven't had much luck!

Can folks either post a link or post the pictures straight to this thread? Any help would be, as always, much appreciated!!


Thanks,

Jack

Spotted / Was It You? / Very Clean White GT5 in Rochdale
« on: 15:28, Sat 24 March 2012 »
Saw it today, very clean!

Make yourself known to me if you are on here buddy!

Cheers guys

Have been searching through quite a few and though there are certainly pictures that help, they are few and far between.  I was hoping to save hours of trawling by getting them posted directly here!

I haven't done a thread build myself though i'm beggining to think I should have!

Pretty much an entire nut and bolt rebuild.  New fuel lines/brake lines (new clips too!).  Full engine clean, paint and rebuild. Rebuilt T2/25 turbo. All brackets, engine and suspension components cleaned and painted/plated. Subframe and rear axle shot blasted and powder coated. Fully reconditioned and cleaned brake system. Uprated fuel pump and modded carb yet to be done!  I got nearly all the nuts and bolts plated so they wouldn't rust and spoil the look!

There's loads more fiddly bits to be done yet.  Still got the intercooler to mod and clean. Still got loads of other bits to clean!

Any advice on the build would be greatly appreciated :)

Cheers!
