Re: pyrometer gauge

I pulled my manifold out to do it. It wasn't that bad and that way I knew for sure that no metal went through the turbo. I was also sure that I got a good, clean, strait hole drilled, and I could tap it nicely...

Re: pyrometer gauge

I left my manifold on the truck but with a friends help had both a magnet and the shop vac going to collect the metal shavings. I removed the fender well on the passenger side to install it. Seemed like the most amount of room.

Re: pyrometer gauge

You dont have to pull a fender you should drill and tap it on the drivers side rear cylinder Aka cylinder 8. I just worked my way up to 1/8 inch and dipped my bits in grease to collect the shavings and clean it every so many seconds while also adding grease. You dont have to drop a manifold to get it done...but to each their own.

Re: pyrometer gauge

work your way up from 1/8th. i wouldnt grease it, more shavings will fall out and get a small magnet to stick up there after you tap it, then use a shop vac and suction out the rest. its not that bad
