Not very well - have plugged all the do-able leaks.
But still cannot hold a static test pressure. Those leaks are not really fix-able; leaks at the idle screw, butterfly shaft - neither of which are O ring sealed, and at the aluminium Y piece that pushes into the inlet manifold block. I say pushes in, because that is all it is - a piece of Al tube pushed into the manifold.
Have tried to seal it - don't know how sucessful yet. The injector blocks are well sealed now. Hopefully I have all the big leaks, but it seems impossible to deal to some of the smaller ones.
But it must be better than it was. Will find out soon.
In the next week or two, I think I'm actually going to get to drive the thing.
Regards
Alan
