The Artist formerly known as Turbo84
- Mar 30, 2008
Before I go to all the trouble of drilling the heads on some 10-24 machine screws I thought I'd ask for some input. I'm fabricating a lower height intake manifold upper section to allow me to reinstall the stock hood on my '84. Years ago I had to put a raised cowl hood on it to clear the turbo manifold and plumbing, and I'm now wanting to get back to a more stock look. I've got the manifold mostly fabricated, and am now working on some reed valves that shunt the turbo compressor section when not in boost. These (hanging) 10-24 screws hold the reed valves in the inner manifold, and I want to safety wire them so that none of them vibrate loose and get sucked into the compressor. Present plans are to make some kind of jig to hold the screws so I can drill some damn small diameter holes in them. I'm open to any good advice before I start on this next week.
