Renault 5 GT Turbo / which turbo
« on: 19:26, Mon 08 January 2007 »
if you could have any turbo charger, which one and whos would it be. been looking at em and every one is saying theres is the best (for obvious reasons) it would be for normal road use but all engine internals and gaskets have been uprated enough for any one of em? i hope :shock:

Renault 5 GT Turbo / valve seals?
« on: 19:03, Mon 08 January 2007 »
stripped my head down last night and noticed there are no valve stem oil seals so i phoned gt tuning who built the head for me and they say that on all competition heads they would not fit em, mine is stage 4. do ya reckon thay are fobbong me off?
on a slightly different note, i noticed there was a bit of play in the valves when i moved em side to side in the guides. bearing in mind it is cold, do ya think there should be a small bit of movement, especially on something that has no seals on it?

Renault 5 GT Turbo / should i lube it up?
« on: 23:36, Fri 05 January 2007 »
just a quickie, the spline that comes out of the gear box and through the fly wheel/clutch, should i grease it up before putting the gear box back on as the bearing thingy that slides up and down it via the clutch arm is sticking a bit!
also what is the best gear box oil to use?

Renault 5 GT Turbo / engine removal?
« on: 18:13, Sun 24 December 2006 »

Renault 5 GT Turbo / coolant hose
« on: 15:43, Sun 10 December 2006 »
been getting a funny smell in my car lately when she has warmed up, then i noticed a small amount of steam coming from the left headlight. popped the bonnet and noticed it was coming off of the turbo :?  thought it was just condensation or something but yesterday a found no water in my header and a raging torrent of coolant coming from underneath the old girl. after closer inspection, the coolant hose that runs to the turbo from the water pump had split almost in two. just wondered if this was a common problem, maybe from the heat or something and if there was any way of stopping this happening again.

General Chat / air tool
« on: 21:11, Mon 20 November 2006 »
my valve seals have gone so i was lookin for a tool for holding the valves shut so i could change the seals without takin the head off. thought is might be of use to other people withe the same problem. they also do a valve spring compressor which works without removing the head at a pretty cheap price :D ... r-k24-g1-a

General Chat / valve spring compressor
« on: 18:54, Fri 10 November 2006 »
does anyone have a valve spring compressor, the type that you do not need to take the head off to use. my valve seals need doin but my head gasket has not long been replaced and all seems well so i dont wanna touch it if i dont have to. also i am tight and dont wanna buy another one. i know i should have done em when it was off but i thought they were alright, so that makes me stupid and tight ( and probably a bit lazy ) any help appreciated or any tips on how to do it without the compressor! my poor car is once again smoking :(
