X-Cell Nitro Pipe: HELP HELP HELP!

Post by Aaron Marti » Thu, 06 Aug 1998 04:00:00



I'm trying to put an X-cell Nitro pipe on my OS .61 WC.  I got the pipe,
and plastic/*** thing which
attaches to the header... ok..fine.  NOW, I've got a piece of equipment
meant for the exhaust pressure..BUT
there isn't a pressure tap in the pipe.  How do I attach this thing? and
Where?!?!  Is there anything else I need
to know to use this pipe?

Aaron, I placed the pressure tap exactley in the front center of the pipe.
50+ flights
no problem. I did this becaus the header flange was too small to be drilled
and taped
for the pressure fitting.

You can install the pressure tap several places in the muffler body. I have
used  locations  just back of the exhaust inlet pipe and in the front center of
the muffler with equal results. Some recommend putting it in the aft muffler
section of the pipe. If your pipe came with the yellow *** coupler, you
might consider replacing it with one of better quality. The yellow material
seems to get soft quickly with heat and the pipe and muffler will easily
separate in flight. X-Cell sells one made of teflon that works well and there
are other good ones on the market. The Nitro pipe works well and is easy to set
up.

Okay-- As per the suggestion of the folks on here-- I tapped myself a hole around
the middle of the pipe (closer to the yellow silicon tubing)... And went out to set

it up.  Guess what!?!  It rocks!  A few turns of the needles (actually had to
richen
all my needles from my Hatori [century] piece of duke clone) and it runnin'
smoother
than a baby's bottom!  I am stunningly impressed with how well my os 61 wc is
running.
All I can say is, "Wow!".  I just hope the pressure tap holds up... I've "found"
that ones
that***in (in this case I made the hole, etc..) tend, over time, to come loose
and destroy
the aluminum around the threads, etc... Time will only tell.

Aaron you need to use some JB Weld on that ***.  Like you said eventually
it will back out otherwise.  Be sure you use some solvent of some sort to
clean the *** and threads first.
