I've been away...

Post by Mercmad » Sat 10 Aug, 2019 7:42 pm

i couldn't access OZBenz, because somehow my password was changed.Not by me as i loathe passwords and Windows 10 does all of the remembering for me. Anyhow,as I tried to get on to Ozbenz I tried the suggested admins link...and it is turned off.
In the meantime I have been overly busy so little time to get on line.

How long do those injector hoses last and what is the best alternative replacement for them in modern fuel hose technology?

Had a chuckle when I saw this advertised of FaceBook. Not that i wanted to laugh at the poor owner, but at all the people I have warned about this over the years and who haven't done anything.

Djet cars were known for burning up when they were 10 years old and I always check them when a car comes in for service. The accepted way to check them is to turn the ignition on and off a few times to build up full pressure,then have a close look. Today the availability of good quality hose means that these hoses should last at least 10 years with the methanol in fuel .
Companies such as Earls sell a aircraft quality hose but it's mostly imperial sizing.
Wouldn't a set of R129 V8 injectors have been easier in terms of availability?.
