AIS removal

6 posts in this topic

Doe anybody know how to get the vaccum and exhaust hose connectors out easy. I have my own lathe to make the plugs and I think I'm going to use copper for a nice press fit. If anyone else thinks I should use another material let me know. :cry:

i am a marine machanic and have learned a lot about electrolisis,

what you need for this is dis simaler mettals water and movment,

the plug goes into your cooling system where water is moving

the worst happens when allm. is in contact with bras or copper

i would be verry carfull what you make the plug out of to save your self 30 bucke you may end up ditroying your allum. block. i would sugjest you use allum. or stainless steel

all the fittings should just pull out with pliers.

check out the performance index sticky for the AIS removal tutorial.

The AIS tutorial is excellent but it does tell you to drain and remove the raditor. It is not necessary to do so. I used a small pair of channel locks and pulled the connector out with out any problems at all. It took me 15 mins to pull the AIS and put the TT AIS removal kit in.

I cut the hose down , and installed 2 , 1/4 brass plugs with some rtv, and for the small hose I just used one of the 6mm bolts that came off of the AIS ,, put some rtv on it as well and thats it, $2.34

SOO instead of removing it you just used a plug and clogged the hose up right.
