Well some progress on jobs and some issues...
Swapped out the one way valve on the fuel pump, no pressure held even though old valve did seem to have issues. Swaped the pump as well for the 413 Bosch Motorsport unit 10psi more pressure static, still no pressure hold. Interesting that either my 044 was tired or the 413 is just so carefully selected that you get better performance than the 044 it started life as. Either way reset my 60 psi base pressure. Scratched head some more. Then came across a post on the turbosmart forum that says turbosmart fpr's don't hold pressure pump off... Well I'll be...
Put some roll cage padding on to meet the blue book helmet contact rules, that went well!
Put a novice sticker on, also went well.
Tried to put a number background on the nose, went badly, number background in bin, tea needed.. Job for another day when missus is not shouting about inappropriate use of hair dryer.
Put some anti-freeze in the coolant as the temp is dropping (I don't think anything would freeze in the garage but better to be safe ehh).
The had a look at the oil fitting. Turns out the adapted tee is made of some unweldable aluminium, which is common for the readily machinable alloys, Ho hum. Next plan, new tee tap for m14x1.5 turn down on lathe and use m14 to 1/8ntp adaptor. I will make this work!
