When I had my power steering rack rebuilt by Classic Tube the point of contact

back then was a guy by the name of Mike Kreigbaum.  That was back in  2010,

not sure if this is still the case.  Excellent work and turn around was quick

too.

Wedge List / Archive This - Re: TR8 Exhaust Air Injection Thread
« Last post by Bill on March 26, 2018, 10:41:14 PM »
I did figure it out.B  The correct size socket set screw is 1/2-20 x 1/2
in a flat or cup point.B  I drop a 7/16" ball bearing down the holeB  
which matches the original sealing surface radius effecting a seal not
relying on the threads to hold the gases in. Also plugs the opening in
the port perfectly.

Thanks all for the input.

Well, I bought the car in 1999 with about 90,000 miles.  Apparently, at some

time, before I bought it, a radiator hose clamp jack screw fell into the

intake. Around 125,000 miles it finally fell into a piston chamber, cracked

a piston, screwed up the cylinder walls and head.  New engine.



Other than that, it's been painted, twice, innumerable master cylinders,

slave cylinders, one CV joint on a drive shaft went bad, new driveshaft, a

water pump, a couple alternators, several A/C repairs,  a couple starter

motors, a new exhaust system, new seat covers, twice, a couple speedometers,

speedometer cables, replaced a heater box (what a pita), motor mounts, a

couple clutches (had the tranny gone through while it was out), at least 2

fuel pumps, solder jobs on the FI brain box. Replaced rusted out floor pans.

2 sets of radiator fans. 2 electronic ignitions. A radiator. Wiper motor.

Innumerable wiring repairs  Ummm, I sure I missed something.



I am ignoring the oil changes, brake pads, spark plugs and such ordinary

consumable items.  



But, it runs great and is fun both to drive and work on.

I found some (big) set screws that "disappear" when installed and make it

look like nothing is missing. Dave is spot on using a bolt to size the

thread, but pay attention to the length to insure they are the right length.

I sized them to be just below flush, but this was years ago and I have

absolutely no idea of the thread or length I used.

I note that my TR8 has achieved 243,000 miles. In 7000 more miles my TR8

will have gone a quarter million miles.  The moon is only 238,000 miles

away.  It still shares daily driver status with the 1973 240Z.  Still runs

like a top (knock on wood).



 



The fun has only just begun.

As I recall, it is a standard US fastener thread.  Maybe 5/16-18 but I don't recall exactly which.  Check it with a bolt.
