Vitesse inlet manifold threads


Recommended Posts

Thanks Pete.

I need to drill out the fwd union and re-tap it ( seized and corroded) I may be able to use the old union as a bush ( grind it off flat and the re-tap it slightly smaller) then install a new pipe tail. But it would be easier to just drill out undersize and the clean out/ re-tap the original thread

Sometimes you can remove it as follows - The existing nut will normally twist off due to the thread being corroded in. If this happens then weld a bolt, nut head, to the remaining tube. Then use lots of oil and heat working the tube too and throw using a socket and small bar.. Over a period of time the tube should screw out. So far I have been successful using this method, but that doesn't guarantee it will every time. Worth A try.
