Re: Electric fan installation

The fan just gets blown round when not powered (the tell tale bulb glows) and means you can raid a scrap yard for anything suitable. Yes just had that. I've fitted a 12 volt "double make" relay. This disconnects the warning light from the fan motor when switched off, so the light does not glow. Pin...

Electric fan installation

Anyone managed to fit an electric fan on a 2000/2.5 between the radiator and the engine? If so can you tell me what make/size. Modern electric fans are more efficient on suck rather than blow. Also if the fan is fitted to the rear of the radiarot it does not block parts of the radiator. The reason I...

Re: Identifying a transmission

If it was attached to a 6 pot engine, I would say it's a GT6 (or maybe Vitesse) box. If it is a GT6 box then should be a 1" input shaft same as a 2000/2.5 however the box is weaker than the generic big boxes as fitted to Stag, TR, 2000, 2.5 & Sprint. Ask me how I know :cry: Should be able to sell it...

Hence the NOS heaters that came from Cyprus. On Spitfires heaters were also option extras. Though try buying one without. Were MkII L...
