used to own a bailey - spring in it was crap as it failed after 12 months every time, now got one from wallace performance and i have to say car runs so much smoother, dont know the make tho - cost me 90 notes
Regarding the tyre pressures, the manual says 33psi for the front and 30psi for the rear. However, I've heard other figures quoted but can't remember what they were or the reason for the difference. No doubt someone will know.
Originally posted by TurboCav Thinking of fitting a dump valve to my 93 Cav Turbo but have heard about a few running problems. Has anyone fitted a Blitz dump valve? Which is the best one to get without having any problems?
Also what tyre pressures should I run and whats this ive heard about rotating tyres?
Dump valve: get one for this model. A Blitz might create problems.
I've got a bailey twin piston DV and it works a treat!
1 high speed motorway 40F 38R
2 local short speed bursts 38 36
3 Up to 120mph around town 36 34
It doesn't hurt erring on the high side a bit, but it's more comfortable and they warm up quicker when they're on the mid-thirties. For top speed runs they've gotta be 40s.
Tyre rotating: VERY important. The tyre tread depths MUST be within 2mm for any two tyres. 1mm if you're not in the mood of paying for another tx box.
Rotating they tyres Front/rear every 3000 miles helps keep them within spec.
i can vouch for that. Had the blitz and spent 2 months p155in around with the guy who supplied it and blitz technical tryin to mod it to work properly. sounded great when blowin off like a bloody 18 wheel scania but would bring management light on and was continuously trying to cut out on every gear change shame coz it looked well tidy!
Whilst on the subject it is also worth noting the main repairer's, Dorfbrunnen, do not give the usual two year guarrantee on a repaired box IF the engine power rating has been increased UNLESS the replacement is a 'Sportsbox' with all new internals and an uprated viscous coupling. This transfers more of the power to the rear wheels. (Standard 90 to 200NM max) This is because the uprated engine supplies more power and the standard viscous coupling will have to deal with the additional heat. The upside is rear wheel traction is also increased - result.
