Wastegate actuator


Recommended Posts

After a bit of advice,

The hole in the rod end of my forge actuators has a slightly larger hole than the stock ones. 8.5mm as opposed to 7.5 mm. 

This means that there will be a bit of 'play' where it fits over the wastegate shaft.

Does this matter or should I try to get some replacements with a smaller hole.

Many thanks

Andy

It should not make any practical difference, although it will allow moisture and potential muck into the spring housing.

Sorry for the misunderstanding.  I would try to match the rod ends  -> wastegate lever to ensure good response to capsule pressure changes.
