I'm gutting my EBPV and replacing my pedestal with a non ebpv model.
While gutting the ebpv I was thinking, would it be a good location for an egt sending unit?
I've never installed an egt sensor, so I don't know how large they are, or what the recommended location is. I think I've heard of the DP being a good spot for one. But since I have a hole to fill in the EBPV, could I stick a sending unit in there?
Or is this location not going to provide an accurate reading?
well, I cant bring up the video. On the back of the acuator houseing, remove the snap ring and plate...remove the acuator and rod...tap the acuator rod hole for a bolt...I but a nut and washer on the bolt just in case it wanted to back out...reinstall plate and snap ring.
cool, thanks for the info. I did a bunch of searching as well and I think I found the video. It's on photobuck and I am not a member, so... I couldn't see it. Login to a private Photobucket.com album
Guess I'll sign up.....
Ok, no go with the pics...sorry. Reomve the snap ring, tap on the acuator rod so it will knock the plug out of the housing. Install a bolt to plug the acuator rod hole, reinstall plug and snap ring. I did leave the solinoid in the pedistol,but its unplugged.
The only advantage to buying a non evbp pedistol, it may be easier to acess the back bolts holding it down in the valley.
If you can find/use brass nuts on the turbo/exhaust flange...wont be near as difficult to break loose next time.
The turbo needs oil for sure, but it doesn't get it from the EBPV actuator cavity.
On the snap side of the cavity there are 2 ports, one is for incoming pressurized oil, and the one on the bottom of the cavity is for drain back when the EBPV is de-energized. Then there is the trough typy cavity at the rear of the ebpv cavity, I can only guess at what this one is for. The trough cavity exposes the drain back from the turbo. I don't know why it would be open to the plunger side of the EBPV, which is not sealed. This explains all the crusty oil build up on the shaft of the plunger, and then also all along that side of the turbo pedestal.
So some one please slap me if I got all this wrong unish2:
I'm pretty sure I'm ok to seal all these up and not affect the turbo oil flow. At any rate, it's to late to turn back now. I'm going to putty up these holes and if it turns out I'm wrong, I'll buy a new pedestal :dunno:
