    Default wates gates on an old PFM TT 460 set up ???????????????

    Hello all. Still working on the Hallet. Getting closer to getting it to run but having trouble controlling the boost. Anything over 10pounds and it detonates. The current way of boost control is the springs in the intercooler runners. I have yet to find anybody who can explain how this system works. Either way I have tried it with both the strongest and lightest springs. No change to speak of. Does anybody have any way of installing a manual Westgate on this type system. I appreciate the help. Call if you want to discuss. Jack 559-392-6444

    Gale Banks made some exhaust risers with provisions for waste gates, although they may not be as common as all of the ones he made without any provisions. I have a set of them, probably taller than what you have with your PFM system.

    Those early systems used a bypass hole drilled in the turbo exhaust housing to limit the amount of boost they would make. The actual waste gate would improve bottom end performance quite a bit over the large bypass hole in the housing.

    I purchased a couple of waste gate adapters then decided to make my own.

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    Got your PM Wheeler. Thanks much. I would very much look forward to hearing from you when you get your hands on those parts. Regarding the Ford comment; don't give it a thought. Out of all my old car and old boat friends, I am the only one willing to run a ford. Not everyone can have good taste ya know. Have a great day.

    Here are some better pix of the pieces I made.

    The adapters that I purchased are 1 7/16 thick, the waste gate bolt spacing is 2 7/8 and the flange for turbo is 2 3/4 by 3 1/4.

    Hope this helps.

    Those are some nice pieces. Very nice job of building those.

    Acespack (the OP) expressed interest in them, I'll let you know what he decides.
