Hey Hybrid, I was lamenting the demise of the hand tool. We used to use hand tools, then air tools, and more recently rechargeables. Now we use laptops, MAF sensors and sine waves. I am still coming to grips with the hand tool and a wiring diagram -nearly.

Just put an old laptop in your workshop that'll make it look the goods!

Mixed news this evening. It's all back together and I'm very happy with the supercharger install.
However, the head stud is still leaking. Oddly enough, after I took it for a drive, it seemed to settle down. Not sure why.
So my only remaining option is to remove the head stud and try high temp RTV in place of the loctite.

If that works, I will subsequently set fire to the tube of loctite.

In other good news - the car farkin goes like STINK! Fap
Need to play with timing/tune though - it was pinging under load at lower RPM.

Chuck a bottle of Rissolone coolant seal up in it and see if that seals the bolt. Get the copper one.

I've always been wary of putting additives in radiators. Have you used it before? I don't want it to make a mess of other stuff in there.
It actually seemed to improve after I took it for a drive. Not sure if some of the sealant has coagulated in there or something.

Yep a few times doesn't clog the rad, fixed a head gasket leak in a Navara for 2 years.

Did some reading on it. Sounds like it's dormant until it comes out a leak.
If I was really concerned I could drop the coolant after the leak was plugged and put fresh stuff back in.

What I've always done when putting heads back on is to fill and run with water only for first 24hr's. Went to an ACL Gaskets night years ago and someone there said that coolant has smaller molecules and will "bleed" through the smallest possible gap it can find.
By putting water in first the bigger molecules will try to get through but can't and get stuck and plug the gap before adding the coolant.
To long ago to remember if it was a ACL Tech guy saying this or just another person there on the night but it's how I've done it for years.

Also does anyone still use the H@#&=n head bolt sealant ? It might work on this application if the coolant is drained, remove 1 head bolt at a time and wash the thread with brakeleen. Just a thought that might be worth a try.

Thanks ant. Yes lots of people still use that stuff too. I do wonder now with the invention of high temp RTV whether it is worth using anything else.
I definitely won't be using the thread sealer again.
