    Default Swirl pot rod what do I need to replace

    Well my veccy felt down and not pulling well a quick look revealed the swirl pot linkage was off and making a bid for freedom

    Nit going to mess around and I'm just going to fit the revised manifold.

    My shopping list so far

    Inlet manifold
    Inlet gasket
    Coolant


    Anything else I need I did see someone mention an actuator but is this really needed? No 3 pot still seems tomspin quite happily when revved so at least I know it's just the posh linkage.

    Spec me a shopping list pls guys

    Hi Toast
    Unfortunatley you will need to replace the actuator motor when replacing the inlet manifold, I recentley replaced mine without the doing the actuator and had to go through the whole procedure again. I would advise you to get a few various jubbilee clips as you will need to replace a few of the clips you will remove. Probably worth doing the timeing belt as well, if it hasnt been changed.

    Never changed the actuator on mine!, dont bother, its possible to change it after if needed. if its not broken i would'nt bother, people keep going on about it learning its movements but my local vx main dealer dont change them either!. It returns back to a set resting point via a built in 'stop' and has a very strong return spring!!. and when it moves to open it can only go to its opposite 'stop' no further!!.

    Wouldn't quite agree!
    The Haynes manual is written with the engine out - making it all seem fairly easy.
    Many of the nuts and bolts cannot be seen except with a mirror and undone by feel. It really is a pig of a job for something that would normally be so simple.
    Clamping the high pressure fuel pump pulley and then releasing the pump (one nut is 4 inches back in a hole - drop that nut and .......) whilst leaving the cambelt in place is a real pain just to reach one manifold nut and so on.

    Really glad I don't do those for a living.
