Thanks Mike I was thinking cut off from stud/nuts with small cutting disc where I can see the nuts but again I couldn't see all the nuts from buttom maybe need mirror or somting I can see the nuts to cut off ! Another issue is studs are often hard to removed as you menstion ! that means, it not good id
  18. Thanks Janathan But these tools are too big to use on maifold ! I read on LEW how to removed maifold but the picture showed theses maifold are the new type, I guess there are much more space/samllere than old one ! (e.g. I can't see the nuts the 2-3 cylinder bottom ! ) Does any one replaced the old type maifold without take engin out ? then I would like to hear how to o do it !! Y.Hotta
  19. Today took a picture from left wheelarchie and When I look around maifold the end of two exhaust nuts are amlost gone ! How can I remove these nuts (see the picture ) Antoher problem are I could not see studs/nuts no. 2 and 3 because I have the old type (two pices exhaut mainfold ! Now the question does any one tried replace the old type mainfold without the engine out ! it's almost impossible for me to do the task from under the car !!! Y.Hotta
  20. Hi Folks Now the time to replace the exhaust maifold from My Esprit Turbo (1988) . My question are what sequence do I have to approach? I know some guys in LEF mentions some time age but it's not clear ! I'm try to replace it without engine out (this week end), so time to make a plan. I have now a SWL maifold and stud bolts, lock plates, gasket, so all the parts are ready ! Her are some of my question (where to start) ? - remove heatsheld - remove turbo - remove maifold Is there any releasing sequece ? mount the new maifold, Is there any tigtening seuesce (torque) ? As I can see some of the nuts are very rusty or almost gone How to removed the nuts from maifold ? Any special tools Do I need it ? Need some advice thanks Y.Hotta
  21. Try Malc (Espritism) ! I think he has ECU ! Y.Hotta
  22. Well My Esprit turbo U.K version with Renault box the reason I changed to injection is I'm using esprit all year, so I thought it may better economy, more power, even winter with cold weather easy to start ... I think as Chris said it's easier to sell and buy SE/S4 .. if tax is not issue. In denmark, it will cost the TAX twice as much what Esprit cost in U.K. So, For me it will very expensiv to swap SE or S4. After 6 months with injector, I had some problem with e.g. O2 sensor, commection problems...., so it's Not better reliability/maintain than Carb. ! The power issue, It's much power,so when the road is wet/snow must drive safe !! If your Esprit has Citroen gearbox, then you need to check the parts list etc... to se the differece between citroen V.S. renault ! I hope it will help ! Y.Hotta
  23. Hi Guy Well, I did last year ! My Esprit turbo (1988) was Carb. but few years ago I replaced with S4 type Engine and mounted reused Carb. Last year when all the parts I collected in a year then replaced from S4 Delco Injectin incl. harnesses, ECU, alle sensors ! If you do the same as I did. then you need following change: - SE type clutch housing to mount the flywheel sensor - SE type flywheel - SE type right rear hub carrier to mount speed sensor - Need mont speed ring right driveshaft - New fuel pump - Need change Exhaust downpipe to mount the O2 sensor - Changecooler, cooler and el. pump - SE type Tacometer - Relay box (make by self) el. cablng need to change .. - Free Scan software from LEW and may be some more parts and lot of work hours .... Y.Hotta
