I spent most of the evening yesterday reading about ARV, EGR, ALDA.
I understood EGR from gas cars, but didn't feel quite up to speed on the others. I decided it would be prudent theoretically to disable the EGR, however doing so would
be moot, if it were "stuck" in a postition other than closed. Since I had no
gasket at hand, I didn't want to remove and test, just in case I farked the gasket getting the EGR off. As to the ARV, I just wasn't all that sure either about just exactly what hose it was. ALDA, after much reading, I thought I'd just leave that alone. Benefit at best tweak,was neglegible.This little TD runs SO good, I'm a little afraid to tweak it at my current learning level. WELL, I went out a few minutes ago, after shaking a couple BBs out
of my old Daisy. I pulled the EGR line at the hose end and inserted a BB.
Pulled off the ARV at the unit end, just because it came off easier. Hmm,
what's in the that a BB? Pulled off the other end of the EGR hose. Geez, is that something copper colored stuck in there? Better get
the mini needle nose out and clear these lines, gotta be in compliance.
Some bad old PO musta been "testing" and forgot to restore to compliance
level before driving. One of my friends came by with a 6. What was I doing? Perhaps I'll
remember in the morning.
