Renault 5 GT Turbo / Oil/Mayo problem
« on: 18:36, Sun 15 May 2011 »
Rite as some of u know I am very close to finishing all my jobs on the car. Just a few small ones left. But the main one that's bugging me is. I still have Mayo. Now I was told on hear and I am sure it's left over from when the head gasket went.
And as I haven't driven her more than 200 yards none of it has gone.
So how the hell do I get rid!!

I was thinking run engine till hot then drain oil and fill with new. But is that enough? Can I do something else?

Renault 5 GT Turbo / AFR gauge or somthing else ?
« on: 15:55, Mon 02 May 2011 »
Hi guys rite I have managed to scrape some cash together to get my car finished.

What I want to know is... When it's on the road again is it going to blow a H/G again.
I have a group A carb (I know I know!!!)
I have changed some bits like tubular manifold and some head work. So it's not going to be same as before. So if I buy a AFR gauge and the set up isn't rite I will then need to re jet the carb etc.
Or...
Do I buy a standard carb and run it on that for a bit.

Basicly I haven't really got the money to get the gauge and re jet the carb etc.
But if it's Gota happen it's Gota happen.

What's my cheapest option for now?
And what's the best option?
