    Default About to glue swirl flaps.....as far left as possible or actual 10 o clock?

    Just wondering as mine rotate all the way round to I'd say 7-8-9o'clock

    And number 3 is second from the battery,but third from the air box right?

    Well....I don't think there's a tidy way of doing that lol,no matter what you do the outcome is the same.....a blob of liquid metal lol,as I had air leaks I smothered them,I think number 3 may also have a small for leak,is it worth trying to seal it? Or would it just jam/seize it?

    Dont do number 3 as the actuator wont be able to operate n throw an hissy fit n prob go into limp mode but if you really want to do it i would take off the acuator rod before hand then bond it n it should be ok
