Plug on Garrett AT pro coil needs fixing

Post by oosterhuis » Mon Jun 17, 2019 6:09 pm

Hello everyone, first topic here. I am quite new at the hobby 33 years old and from the Netherlands.
I have a problem with my at pro. After use in water it started chattering and it still does after 24 hours. I checked and found out the watertight sealing on the plug of the coil is torn. Insuspect water came in there. I tried drying it, but it doesn't work properly anymore. Is there anyone who could advice me on hoe to replace the plug?

Unfortunately your problems is liable to be terminal due to the ingress of salt water.
I hope you find a solution ::g Regards ss47

I would try to wrap it in tissue and put somewhere warm and and for a few days the use the silicone
( CT1 ) to form a new seal around the tear.
I had the same problem and now its like new.
