Title: Dragonfly induction pipes
Post by: Sgtbiro on 15 Feb 2021 at 19:14
Hi all help needed. i have just received my induction pipes back from the rechromers  and i think they have taken to much off the diameters of the pipes while polishing them as they are now a lose fit in the glands i have put new seals in the glands that i bought from the LDMCC. is there a work around or will i have to obtain some new pipes from somewhere.

Cheers Kevin..

Kevin,
          The 'O' rings supplied by the LDMCC would have been to an imperial size with a 1" bore - have a look at Simply Bearings website, there may be a metric 'O' ring with a 25mm bore that is slightly larger in section. Fitting the larger section ring into the end fittings shouldn't be a problem, as 'O' ring grooves are usually wide enough to allow the ring to float.

   Regards,
                  Eddie.
