LOCATED AND TERMINATED THE DREADED RPM RELATED RALLTLE!!!!
First off hello fellas hope everyones alright....
As the longer term members are aware I had the rpm related rattle that was only audible under load. I was bored the other day so I checked again for it. It was defo coming from the nearside manifold area and I was resigned to it being the usual old/pre facelift manifold prob so was bracing myself for a hefty session!!! HOWEVER, I had previously tightened the bolts on both the heatshields to no avail. This time I removed the nearside heatshield only and found that the rattle is now completely gone!! :rock:Seems as though it was just too close to the manifold and they were touching when I inspected them. I have left the offside shield on as I don't want excessive heatsoak around the airbox region. I hope things will not get too hot in the bay now the nearside shield has been removed.
Feedback on this gents?................Ollie:sm4:
