Type 44 boost loss
I'm looking at the weirdest problem on Roger Galvin's 200TQ 1B (MC-1)
It was running at 1.2 bar boost. I found and fixed a whole raft of
things, and got it to 1.4 bar. At that point, the long hose from the
turbo to the far end of the single-pass intercooler proved to be
I repaired _that_, and got to 1.6 bar. Then I discovered the rear of
the Michelin man hose was leaking, and had to wait a week or so before
I got a replacement.
With the new Michelin man hose, we see a reliable 1.7 bar (should be
1.69, but the display's not wide enough) most of the time. On long
fast runs a sudden 'sporty' session produces 1.8 bar, and sometimes the
most peculiar sensation, as if the system is dumping air in quantity.
At first I suspected the sleeve joint in the long hose (see second
paragraph). I found what seemed to be a 'bubbling' of the joint that
hadn't been there before. Anyone seen this? Any other ideas?
I'm sure it's a boost air problem.
