Re: Looking for EGR part number
This is my second try at getting this posted ,had it all typed out and got bumped off ...man don't that pi$$ ya off.
Anyhow the washers that they give you with the new EGR's are to take the place of the restrictor plate that looked like "just a gasket"according to my 1980 TSM
"The restrictor plate is located between the exhaust back pressure sensor and intake manifold mounted between gaskets,the restrictor plate is calibrated to a particular engine /exhaust system and should not be altered "
that gasket looking thing is it and should have a number on it ...so if you mike or measure that restrictor plate you should use a washer of equal diameter,or just use the old one.
I just used a generic EGR valve and guessed at the washer size since I did not have this info on hand at the time.
there was most likley nothing wrong with my old one just the hole going into the manifold had peen plugged ,looked real professional too metal plug with a sealer on it ,I was impressed,and baffeled at the same time,
If you dont have your old restrictor plate around maybe someone on the board has one laying around for a similar engine and could hook ya up
Learn to let go of what does not serve you ,but forces you to serve it
why does everyone ask if I am gonna paint it ?
