Excellent. A variation we used at the steam electric plant was dry ice on the bolt. The water is perhaps even better for the shock factor and great availabity.

I see a bearded version of Vlad with a bottle of vodka and a large torch in hand when I envision your father.

Glad you got the bolts yanked off. Jealous your father is capable of that, mine would just throw cash at it till the problem went away.

The one that was broken off, he puts a nut over, and welds it onto the stud from the inside of the nut. Then repeats above procedure.
The "heat and cold" method combined with the "weld a nut to broke stud /bolt"... your Dad knows what he is doing

hahaha he doesn't drink or curse.
otherwise yes, he looks like one of those big bearded russians that you don't wanna mess with.

Ordered G-Pop shop kit for the t25, even though its actually in decent shape as is. I am getting addicted to rebuilding turbo's lol. The gt2560r is just going to get a thorough cleaning and ported wastegate, since its pretty mint otherwise. Both are going to be near-new condition when I'm done.

I still really gotta stop putting off fixing this MS3x and finally install it.

My pops helped me in the same situation. We used lots of heat (same oxy type torch your dad has), and used an air duster can turned upside down to frost the stud. I drilled a hole all the way "through" the stud, which helps release the tension on it, the sprayed the air duster into the hole. Came right out with an easy out using that method.

Then I ran into another problem, the exhaust housing was seized on. even with the bolts removed the BFH would not budge it, it was seized together with carbon and rust. Ended up using a LOT of heat, and a lot of slamming with the BFH.

I guess my point is, these old tiny turbos are a PITA.

Yep, we had to heat up the housing to come off too.

Right now I'm shopping for misc crap: filter, turbo inlet, fittings, oil drain, etc.

I find it awesome that a bunch of links to a bunch of stuff is still posted in this very thread from before, and now I just open my own thread to help myself

I guess what I'm sayin is: I love it that y'all post in this thread

My friend finally had time to stop by and solder the tiny resistor.

When I say tiny, I mean microscopic. My mind was blown.



for size reference, regular razor blade with the resistor on it.



Anywho, I fired the car up with the MS3, and TACH WORKED

SMD/SMT resistor = huge PITA. I cant say how many hours I've spent with a magnifying glass, soldering iron, hemostat and razor blade. Good jorb on that one.

Where the boosts is at? Also, answer my PM

@Vlad - was this resistor wrong on the MS3X from the beginning?

I got a friend here that has the same problem with a non working tach - see here:
No tach in 94 1.8 MX-5 with MS3X

Thanks
Sven

But Vlad has 99 new resistors left over.

I presume you have let Rev know about the issue?

Yep, he was the one helping me troubleshoot.

If anyone needs a resistor or 10, holla at me.

I can't wait to get this thing in permanently and start tuning.

I guess it won't make any sense to ship that tiny bugger over the ocean.... ;-)

Was that a batch of incorrect MS3X cards?
