I cannot accept the need to keep diesel engine revs high, they are TORQUE engines, designed for low rpm use, revving them should be a waste of time and fuel, i rarely exceed 2250 derby, so your giving me 1700-2250 as a useable band?markderby said:thats what the DMF does smooth out vibrations from the engine giving less stress on the crank and gearbox
the torq is the same its just the way Durvs run as that compress the fuel to fire this is turn gives alot of Lumpyness with in the engine and transmit thou the crank > gearbox
thats why all so you shouldnt drive in to high of a gear at very low speads ..
IE 30mph in 5th like a lot of drivers do
all ways try and keep your RPM in the 1700 above
i do remember some one on here had a snapped crank/input shaft due to SMF being fitted
No, it fits over the gearbox input shaft so you would have to remove the gearbox to change it anyway, even with a large hole in the bellhousing.Micky said:Can the slave cylinder be changed without dismantling ie by making a hole through the clutch housing?
