an exaust question

Hey fella's (and gals),
i installed a pyrometer last weekend and have a few questions for you all.

1. the instruction manual that came with the probe said to keep the fitting flush with the inside of the manifold. ok, i did that but the fitting is only in maybe four or five full tuns and sticking out of the top about a good quarter of an inch to the nut. pics coming soon, i hope. what to do, run the fitting all the way down? what effects if any will that little blockage have?

2. all seems well untill i put a load on the engine ie: pulling a trailer. then a get an exaust leak noise from under the hood and an aparent loss of power (or atleast it feels like it). now im sure its either the fitting or the manifold as i removed it to drill the hole. the question i have is, how do i tell if the manifold is aligned properly. i have a feeling the noise is either the fitting or perhaps the connection to the up pipe.

cant seem to repeat the issue from under the truck and with out a load.

p.s. how can i get a sticker and help support the association?

thanks for your time,
dave

As for the exhaust question, sounds like a manifold issue. As far as a sticker contact mudrunninpig and to get in the association go to this link CPA Chat Thread and start posting. Welcome to the CPA.

The end of the pyrometer should be midway through the pipe. Having it in the center of the air flow gives you the best temp readings. Of course it needs to go pre turbo and not post. If you have any other questions I will help you all I can.

hey hornet, i appreciate that. the probe itself is seated correctly, the fitting however is the dilemma. i took pics with my phone, i just have to get home to post. lemme ask ya this...... the gasket (i guess its a gasket) that seats the manifold to the up pipe - does that need to be replaced after removal? and, is that a self seating ring? thanks.
