    Default (Swirl bar) fair play to everyone that put it back on

    Replaced my glow today, also tried to put swirl bar back on , used the washer trick, but couldn't get the ****** thing back on. Lined all the swirl flaps up, tried to push it back on, but everything kept moving, then the washers started to break off, so gave up. So fair play to everyone that managed it.

    Better get saving

    i did it to mine and it lasted ages,about 10k beofre it fell off last week due to the glue comming unstuck on the of the fixings.

    I had to make the hole slightly bigger(a fraction of a mm) to get it to pop over the ball joint bit but once its on it stayed on for a long time.

    I do need a new manfold as all my swirl pots are leaking oily gunk like crazy but for a temp fit to keep MPG high and low down torqe its a brilliant.

    when my bar came off i used numberplate caps and industrial super glue with activator to glue the caps on . to get the bar on - if you look in the middle of the bar there is a very small hole , i used a very thin t-bar alan key and glued it in the hole. then i lowered it in position and pressed the bar on with a screwdriver , while pressing the bar down i twisted the alan key to release it . the bar stayed on for 8 months till i had the inlet changed .
