heya fellas, having some issues sorting a 'steam line' on the engine outlet hose of my A20. does the standard NA top 'radiator' hose have a T fitting in it for the expansion tank? or does the steam line come directly off the block?

 

cheers

ed

The steam line top the tank is connected to the head via a solid outlet near the water hose outlet.

(Z22SE use a slightly different thread fitting compared to a B207 head)

 

 

Cannot link a pic here, but google for an B207/Z22SE engine image and it's easy to spot.

i have a funny feeling the A20 has the turbo coolant return plumbed into that position (banjo fitting) so theres no hardline provision for the steam line. urghh annoying

You're right, but on the pic it looks like they use a fancy "go-through" connection for the steam outlet hose to the tank, with the turbo banjo connection sandwitched in between... :happy: http://www.vectra-c....1/US A20NHT.jpg

When looking at that engine, I planned to either just cut the existing pipe (9 in the above) and use a joiner / adaptor to fit the existing rubber hose. Or, fit a T adaptor connection in between existing coolant port and hose (would just look crap with lots of clips and potential for additional leakage paths)

From memory the NA outlet hose bend has a slight higher point that breather outlet on the block, so best would be to fit the tank breather connection at that highest point there..

 

(you can have a fancy new custom hose-with-outlet made?? I think Dominique had a new outlet hose made-up in silicone)

hose 1 and 9 dont fit in the VX. you can use the existing NA hose, but theres no port. so cut and insert T fitting, but it gets a little awkward

 

ill see if i can find a fitting for the banjo bolt...
