Re: Thermostat housing - with temp sensor port

Sure, no problem. I'll try and get down to the shed and have a look in the next couple of days.

Cheers,
Mike.

Re: Thermostat housing - with temp sensor port

I think that would be ideal as it will sense the temperature on the radiator side of the thermostat. Until the thermostat opens you're not really bothered as the engine isn't up to temperature. Once the thermostat has opened, then the temperature either side of the thermostat should be the same. Ass...

Re: Thermostat housing - with temp sensor port

Far be it for me to disagree with Clifford, but I have had both 2000s and 2500s and the temperature sensor has always been threaded into the (normally cast iron) water pump housing just in front of the thermostat pocket. I agree that the thermostat housing top cover (where the radiator top hose conn...

Re: Wanted Mk2 Pre-face lift front screen surround

Thanks John. I also thought the trim was the same for all models, Mk1 and Mk2, but after I recently incorrectly posted about head numbers, I thought I'd keep quiet for a bit! I agree, you'd need the joining pieces too which I thought were still available, but having checked quickly, it seems that th...

Re: Headlining on Mark 2

Hi Guys, This is such an interesting thread that I am featuring it in the forum notes for the next Six Appeal, pictures and all. I wonder if you could email the pictures to me that are in the thread, but in the original (higher) resolution? This would be better for publishing. I make that 7 photos f...

Re: Engine Identification - Help Needed

And 219015 is for a 2000. CW has a very useful document of Head Applications with casting and part numbers listed together with which engine they were used on. However, it's a PDF and they aren't allowed on the forum! (OK as administrator I should know to change that - but I don't). Look in Chris's ...

Re: Drivetrain knocking getting louder on braking

Please check your wheel nuts! I guess you have the standard (alloy) wheel nuts on the 'S' type wheels? In my experience they can come loose, giving a regular knocking noise.

When I ran an 'S', I used to keep the wheel nut spanner next to the handbrake - just in case!

Cheers,
Mike.

Re: A trap for unwary travellers.

As far as I know, Mk1 engines use an inertia type and Mk2 a pre-engaged type. When I fitted an ex-TR6 engine in my Mk1 saloon (all those years ago!), I came across this problem and had to buy a pre-engaged starter to get it all going. Mind you, it did go like stink as it was geared as a 2000 and the...
