3 in a row, 360 inspection required
The last three 360 Spiders in for service showed the same failure, one resulting in the aluminum pipe being cut through. Niki found the first two while doing engine bay work. Easily inspected by simply opening the engine lid. I have not spent the time to see if this is a Spider only issue or what Assembly number ranges are affected. Feedback from folks might help narrow down the affected range.
The Oil Tank vent tube (360 Spider, Tav 21, item #45) is being cut through by the Vac. Actuator bracket (360 Spider, Tav 8, #35 holding valve #6 ). In two of the 3 instances the damage was caught early enough that a simply reposition of the bracket was all that was required. The third example showed the aluminum tube cut completely through.
Worth a look see with prevention in mind. Below and inboard slightly from the Right side MAF Sensor. Pass this on to other 360 owners, if caught early enough it presents very little challenge to repair.
