  1. I also had this problem when installing new sprockets. The piston slowly protruded and I had to use a small c- clamp to push the piston back in. Then everything fit and I was able to get the housing flush with the engine case. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  2. Same here. Just a little golden hue. Did you have yours passivated?
  3. They are the real deal and if they ever run another batch you should consider buying a set.
  4. Will check the jug for silicates. Fuel pump? If I had a brain I'd be dangerous-don't know why I typed that. I also read about flushing with vinegar and water then a soda solution so will do that as well. Curious to see what comes out!
  5. Thanks Duc-will order them directly off their website. Thanks much for all the info. Btw I may have inadvertently put a bit (less than 1/2 cup) of Prestone antifreeze in yesterday-will that screw up my fuel pump gasket? I diluted it w/ distilled water so <1/2 cup antifreeze and 1/2 cup water. I hope I don't need to drain all the fluid out prior to the fall when I empty it out for the hose replacement. I didn't know one couldn't use typical car antifreeze w/ silicates. Learn something new every day.
  6. I've seen posts where guys ordered the hoses from AS3 off eBay. I can't find the VFR hoses on eBay so will probably have to order directly from them-they appear to be in GB. Are they available cheaper on eBay?
  7. Thanks-will order the clamps as well.
  8. That was the image I saw.
  9. Thanks Duc for all the info. I have the new fan in the cart and will add these o rings to it. I believe I'm going to order a hose kit from AS3. Should I order all new clamps as well? Or will they be reusable? I'm worried about how much crud will be in/over them. Also I was looking through a few other threads relating to replacing the hoses/thermostat and noticed 2 gaskets that were completely disentegrated. They didn't appear to be rubber but not sure. I was wondering if you knew which ones I'm referring to and if so are they in the above list? Sorry for so many questions but this will be the only time these hoses will be replaced (hopefully) and I want to do it right.
  10. Same. I use the cowl and it's never moved and I'm 245 lbs. I too, wondered how it was going to stay on when I first bought it but it works just fine.
  11. Are these the O rings I need? O-RING (13.5X1.4) 91307-611-000
  12. Thanks-great advice. My hoses are original (I know-they should have been replaced long ago) so I plan on taking the tank off this fall, send the injectors to be cleaned and replace all the hoses and the thermostat. I've already replaced the radiator cap w/ OEM. How do you have that fan secured? clever.
  13. Took a long ride-hotter today than yesterday and never saw temps higher than 187 when moving. Got home and let it sit on the driveway and idle and when it reached 220 the fans came on. I could only feel air exiting on the L side-does the R fan pull outside air onto the engine?
  14. Well, it appears it was the simplest of problems-low coolant. couldn't see it when opening the radiator cap. Filled it and "burped" the system and going for a ride. Hope this solves my problem. I think I may have lost some coolant when routing the wiring for the PC3 USB which required taking the overflow tank off-some must have leaked out.
