Rolling road - split driveshaft boot and binding rear brakes reduce power on graph?
#1
As above, cars going on the rolling road tomorrow and just found a split drive shaft boot leaking a little bit of oil, and brakes binding due to warped disc at thhe rear, will this affect results?
Cheers

Unless you've got one of the fabled rear wheel drive 306's I don't think the rear brakes will make much of a difference... Tongue

It has been done, someone stuck a 5.0 V8 ford GT engine in the back of one, it was on eBay for ages. Plus there's the rally car, cosworth 306 with the mid mounted V6.

Won't make any difference to power reading as long as it's not a Dyno Dynamics in Shootout mode.

Or a really shit dyno/operator.

But they may pull your pants down if it shits CV grease everywhere.

If you can get one of those stick on boots that come in 2 halves maybe sticking that over the top of the existing one would work as a quick bodge?

dont bother bodging it, it takes no more time and less mess to do the job properly with a decent boot, plus they last so much longer, remember how long o.e boots last?...

How does it take no more time? You can bodge it without removing the wheel even! Confused

Pfft, you end up covered in CV grease regardless lol, seems to go everywhere! lol

Plus you have to spend hours ruining knuckles and elbows trying to get the bottom BJ out... Assuming he's got a 36mm socket and some way of removing the hub nut.

Easier in a garage with proper tools yeah, but not on a driveway with a socket set.

bottom bj is a doddle, and its 35mm not 36.

Halfords don't sell a 35mm impact socket though. Wink

Bottom BJ isn't a doddle. After all these years I still can't get the knack for them! Tried levers and bars in every angle possible lol.

As already said, no its not going to effect power....However dont turn up to a dyno with a split CV joint as you are going to just get grease all over there dyno / rollers...and the worst thing possible on any rolling road is fluid of any form on the rollers Smile

Guys, Google this tool then go make one from a piece of wood (2*4) and your jack handle...

DeeTurbo showed me the trick, it is very easy, near effortless and safe balljoint removal.
Once it out and the other work done, rejig the tool to help you lever it back in too.

still only seeing BJs in this thread, I find grabbing a long shaft and giving it a smack down helps them come out quickly. find that those tools often split the rubber...

I think that it's meant to be this:

http://www.toolbits.org.uk/Files/71538/Img/21/T433100.jpg

I can't say that I generally find balljoints to be a problem - can be a little stubborn if they've rusted in place from not being removed in years, but generally speaking downwards pressure on the wishbone and pushing the hub inwards makes them pop out easily enough and crucially without damage.  It's rare that I need to resort to BFI using a balljoint splitter or similar.
