Pat, we have air rail plugs in stock. But, are you removing entire air

rail system from engine - 4 holes in each cylinder head. Or are you  

just trying to plug the output from the pump to air rail? Ted

Hi Pat,



The Wedge Shop sells the plugs, but doesnbt list what the size is.

Do you still have the cats on your car?  The purpose of the air pump is to

introduce extra air into the exhaust for the cats to work.



Ibm not clear on the idea of a vent.  Ibve heard of doing that for the

crankcase breather, if you donbt have it connected to the carbs, but I

donbt think you would want to do that to the exhaust ports.

I have decide to pull the air pump off my TR8 as the belt is missing

and I have no idea of the pumps condition.  Does anyone know the size of a

plug that will screw into the exhaust manifold at the location of the air

rail?

    A 7/16 inch plug fit my TR7 but this is too small for the TR8 and 1/2

inch is too large.  In metric a M12 seems too small and I do not have a M14

bolt or tap to check.



I have two other options:

     I read in the old TR8CCA news letters that you could attach a vent

filter to the manifold and K&N does sell these.  Is this a viable option?

I am not sure how air pumps work on exhaust emissions.

     I could hook the air pump back up and see if everything works?  TRF

seems to be the only vendor selling new Air Pump Belts.

I wouldn't be surprised if Ted has already gotten that one. It's in his
neighborhood.

That $1500 TR8 will cost $12000 to restore.   Been there before.  Parts have

gotten scarce and expensive.  Repo parts from Far East are junk.  But the best

you can afford.

John, & all



not two gaskets, but 3 filters and it does the same leaking.



it is likely a sticking pressure relief valve.

7 or 8?



I expect a problem with the seal or the sealing surface. Is the old

gasket still in place?? I seriously doubt that either engine will

produce enough pressure to force past a gasket that is sealing properly,

and even then, it would probably be deforming the filter/canister.

Wedge List / Oil squirting from the filter seal
« Last post by Major Tom on April 24, 2017, 11:02:47 PM »
Aloha



Suddenly my car started squirting oil from the oil filter seal.



I replaced the filter filled it up and it continues to break the seal.



My guess  it is over pressured.



Has anyone experienced this?



how hard is it to change the pressure relief valve in situ?
