Re: Sump surge guard/baffle?

Thanks for the replies, Charles has described what I thought was missing but Alec, I think may have identified the root of the problem. Although I would have thought some sort of surge protection would be used by race/rally cars. All the oil in the sump must end up in the front of the engine under h...

Sump surge guard/baffle?

I am trying to work out if all 2500 engines were supplied with a sump surge guard. My car has done 3000km on a new engine and is leaking out of the front seal. When it came back from the re builder, the sump was empty and there was no signs of a surge guard having been fitted. This is not to say tha...

Re: Centre console swap

Here is an option for some more switches. My car has EFI so no choke needed, it could however be installed on a sub panel on the right below the dash.

Strange auto reaction

Since removing and refitting my engine I have had a strange problem with my auto BW65. When starting the car after sitting for a day or so it would not at first select the gear, after a delay it would work. I over filled it thinking it may be under filled and there was no change. I then went away fo...

Re: Viscus coupling fan start temp please

Thanks for the replies chaps. However I was looking for the temperature settings not a discussion on the application of viscous couplings or not. Info on Wikipedia which says:- When the engine is cool or even at normal operating temperature, the fan clutch partially disengages the engine's mechanica...

Viscus coupling fan start temp please

Does any one know at what temperature the viscous coupling fan kicks in on a 2500TC?
Mine is marked UKC4374 on the retaining ring and is a 1977 model.
