Right, I have the Satchel inlet manifold on my bodies. I am running the injectors on the bodies, and not in the manifold where the standard ones go.

Is there anyone on here that has used the injector blanks Colin does?   I have them, but i want to know the best way of fitting them? Obviously if you just put them in as is, they will launch themselves across the garage..... apparently! yell

So im just curious as to what the best method of securing them in place would be?   If no one knows il drop Colin another email, but didnt want to bother him with something so trivial unless necessary.  And i really dont want to run the old fuel rail there just to block the holes.

What do they look like and why would they be launched?


I'd just ping Dave a PM via facebook if needs be, he responds quite quickly usually :)

The look like this

 

injector blank

 

There is nothing to hold them in, and not being a held in, they wont stay in there.


And is Dave on the satchel page, or do i need to search him by name?  Not sure who im looking for if i do that.

are they not an interference fit?  so given youre not running boost, they'll stay in fine, maybe a little bearing fit.

Not tight enough to be an interference fit, no.

They were as they came from Colin with the manifold. And it took ages til I got round to fitting the I let so never asked at the time. Hell, the car still isn't fully rebuilt yet!

Well i got a response from Dave.  He said they just loctite them in.  They are tight enough for that, so i hope they should stay in once thats dried!
