Hi

I am in the process of fitting a flashlube kit to my petrol/gas 80 series. My question for those of you that have an 80 with a flashlube kit installed. Where abouts has the vaccum line from the flashlube kit been put into the the manifold. Is there a few different places it can go and is there any spots the work better than others. The instructions state between the butterfly and inlet manifold. Has anyone just taped theres into an existing vaccum line on the mainfold around this area. If anyone could supply any pics of there setup it would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Chad
I fitted mine to the spare plug at the back of the plenum chamber (inlet manifold)as pictured.
Remove the plug with an allen key 8mm in think.
And from memory drill and tap a 3mm thread in the plug.
to suit the brass adaptor supplied.
Replace the plug fit the hose. note the smaller hose in the pic
You can drill and tap the manifold just after the throttle body but it is still a bit of guess work.
unless you remove the throttle body, as to see what you are drilling through.
And fitted the reservoir in front of the battery.

If your 80 series is designed to run on unleaded fuel then the Flashlube is a waste of money. All your doing is burning good hydrocarbons for no benefit.

I did think of this to when fitting the system to my 80, but reasoned it cant hurt, may get more life out of the head/valves, will do what i can to protect the head/valves, apart from not starting it up:)

I didn't have it on my two saharas or the 80 series but I put it on the 105 and the plugs last nearly double the life before wearing.
