Quick question for owners. For those who have IC kit is there a quick and easy way to insure the pump is working? I have a suspicion it may not be. Does it make any audiable sounds when the car is turned on to full accessory but no engine? Or should you see evidence in the coolant reservoir for the IC that the pump is working.

for me i hear a slight whirring sound. you could also feel it vibrant if you touch it and also see movement in the reservoir. did yours take the amount of coolant the instructions specified? i forgot what it was but that could help determine if pump is working properly.

Turn the ignition on but not the car. You'll hear a slight buzz noise where the pump is. You'll also see the liquid in the reservoir move a little. My fuse burnt out and I didn't even notice for many months. I asked the shop to look over it when did my clutch and said the incorrect fuse was in it and it was burnt out. It was the same fuse that came with it so they must have sent it with the wrong one and I was running with it for years like that.

I've broken the fuel screw, It only takes 10 Nm to tighten it. Now I know it but too late.
Anybody know how much torque does each bolts of the blower? I mean I need to take the blower apart, fix it and Put it back together. Maybe they're both 10Nm?

Anyone know how to manually open the bypass actuator/valve? Need to see if it's acting up. Is it as simple as just pushing up or down on the connector rod/arm?

Hi all, recently acquired an 86 with a 210 (IC, 75mm pulley). Been learning a lot so far from this thread and the forum in general, so thanks everyone!

When I eventually learned that it was quite crucial to check the SC oil level, I discovered that, lo and behold, it was pretty much bone dry. Got it filled up now and have been checking regularly, so hopefully no damage was done.

Speaking of, it seems as though there is some contention on whether to check the oil on level ground or with the rear jacked up. I assume this stems from the Innovate manual stating that;

Quote:
THE ENGINE SITS AT A REARWARD ANGLE. THIS PREVENTS ACCURATE MEASUREMENT OF THE GEAR OIL WITH THE DIPSTICK AND PROPER DRAINING. WHEN MEASRING OR REPLACING THE SUPERCHARGER OIL LEVEL, ENSURE THE ENGINE IS LEVEL.
whereas the Sprintex manual simply states to;

Quote:
Ensure the vehicle is parked on level ground before checking the oil level.
For the record, I contacted Bullet and Sprintex (Australia) and they both said that level ground was fine and it is not necessary to jack up the rear to check the level. I can't imagine anyone designing an oil chamber/dipstick that would require you to jack up your car in order to accurately check the level...anyway, food for thought.

I assume you are talking about the oil dipstick? My dipstick was also previously threaded, which seems to be another common occurrence. Now I can't get it anywhere near 10Nm before it threads. I have been getting it as tight as I can with my fingers for now, anything tighter and it threads.

It seems to be ok for now, but I will have to see how it goes with the pressure once the car is up to scratch for the track and it is being pushed.. I am guessing I may just have to sort this out before then though..

Do you mean for the bolts on the actual unit itself? I would say your best bet is to contact (email) Sprintex directly and ask them for those specs as they are not in the installation manual.

If you don't mind me asking, what were your main reasons for returning to NA?

Interesting! I was getting tired of jacking the rear of the car up to check the oil. Also, may I ask how you checked the oil? I find that my dipstick has a hard time being able to show the level of it, so I've been using a Syringe like this one.

But that gets tedious as well since the hose will always trap some oil in there. Might just go back to the good ol' dipstick way.

Geez mate you're dedicated! That sounds like quite the mission every time to check the level!

I also found it very difficult to read the level on the dipstick the first time I tried to check. I ended up using a combination of tips from Bullet and I believe someone from this thread. As soon as I unscrew/remove the dipstick, I hold it horizontal and rest the top/dry end on the edge of a paper towel. Then, slide it across the paper towel moving toward the bottom/level notch. You should then be able to see more clearly when the oil makes contact with the paper towel in relation to the level on the dipstick. I find this method works best for me but you could also simply place the horizontal dipstick on the paper towel and see where the oil marks the paper for your reading.

I hope my explanation was clear enough and not too confusing!

Make sure you wipe the dipstick clean first before doing this. Also, be careful to hold the clean dipstick as straight/steady as possible when screwing it back in and out, to ensure you don't pick up any oil along the dipstick from the housing/threads etc. In saying all that, I have found that if the dipstick is hard to read, then it generally means the level is too low. Once the level reaches the mark/notch it will collect there and should be easier to see.
