R11 Turbo engine bay help needed
« on: 16:04, Tue 23 March 2010 »
Hi again mates...

After long brake I have started my project again. Now I have serious problems with hoses and wires.

Do you have detailed pictures (maybe haynes pictures too) from parts, connectors etc.

Wiring diagram would be very good to have and also I have problems to figure where to plug hoses in a carburettor that I have (and what hoses).

Here is picture from carburettor.



That carburettor is twinchoke weber that T.T.S has made in denmark, originally it was designed and made to R5 GTT, but I bought this to my car.

If I remember well someone at this forum here has one.

I took some pictures more. Maybe you can help me a bit :).



Where I should connect steel reinforced hoses?



What I should connect there and how? I have sandwich plate that I will use to take oil lines to oilcooler, but how about those two in engine block?



What is that mystery hose at the middle? It should be located near that place. Where it goes and where it comes?



Where hose goes from that empty place?





These two are connected to same place. Where I should connect those ends?



Where I should connec that?





What hoses I should connect to all places? I know that there is one hose already connected, but I am not sure about that.

How many and which hoses I should connect to that airintake "connector"?





There are total of three (didnt find more) connectors in inletmanifold. Those pictures are from behind. Where and what hoses I should connect to those?

Thanks :)

Picture 1, that hose will go to the open port in picture 8, on the side of the aluminum plenum.
Picture 2, I think you may have needed to remove the old sandwich plate, or block the empty holes on it.
Picture 3, The hose in the middle of the picture is a coolant hose for the turbo. I think it goes to the bottom spout.
Picture 4, the spout on the rocker cover is for the oil breather, you will have a hose from there to your swirl pot, or catch tank.
Picture 5, Oil return hose from turbo.
Picture 6, Oil return to the sump. There should be a hose between there and the one underneath it it the photo.
Picture 7, Brake servo vacume hose, it will go to one of the one way valves on the back of the inlett manifold.
Picture 9, You could use that to go to your actuator or if there isn't a similar one at the back of the manifold, run it to your AEI unit.
Picture 10, the left hand hose will be part of the oil breather system, the right hand one goes to the brake servo unit in picture 7.
I hope that helps a bit :D

Yes. That helped a lot. It seems that there was no catch tank or swirl pot when I bought this car. I need to buy that then.

Explanation from picture #9 and #10.

There are total of three "connectors" at inlet manifold. If one at the middle goes to brake servo, then there are two left. One at right and one at left...is it part of coolant system? If it is part of coolant system, then I would like to know where I should take from inlent manifold.

I though that hose comes from water pump to inlet manifold, from there it goes to (turbo?) and is circulated back from turbo to water pump (???).

Sorry mate, I may have got that wrong. Are there 2 one way valves or just the 1?
Do you have a better shot of the back of the manifold with all 3 ports showing?

If there's only 1 then the 2 either side probably are for the coolant. If so, they're not essential.
If you do run the coolant to it, the original set up goes from the pump - manifold - carb - turbo - back to the pump.

Here is picture from similar inlet manifold (not exactly same), but there are same number of ports and and in same places:



How you can take carb into that circle? I think that in my case carburettor is not a choice.
