Renault 5 GT Turbo / poor starting
« on: 19:14, Sat 17 April 2010 »
my car has no trouble starting from cold with the choke and no problem starting hot if its only been off 5 minutes but if i leave it off for say 15 minutes its having trouble startin, maybe turns over for 20 seconds before she'll fire, any ideas? could it be fuel related as i'd fiddled a bit with my carb mixture screw and idle screw?

how much are you turning it up? it might be the safety high boost limit cutting it out, you mightneed to remove it if it is

« on: 20:05, Wed 07 April 2010 »
turned it out about two turns just. if say my carb was set up normally and i could only run 14 psi wit these settings does that mean i should only be running 13 or so reading on the aftermarket? or is a safe 14psi on standard carb a 14psi reading on aftermarket gauge? cheers

Renault 5 GT Turbo / boost gauge tee position
« on: 19:48, Wed 07 April 2010 »
i plumbed in an aftermarket boost gauge today and cut the T in behind the scuttle panel pretty much right after the AEI unit, is this ok position or would closer to the carb have been better? anyways gauge read about 11 psi, similar to standard gauge but when i upped the boost by bleed valve the aftermarket gauge is readin pretty much the same but the standard one is up to the closer together lines (13.5 psi i think) any ideas? its a brand new gauge. and is 25 vacuum sound about right? cheers
