Re: Electric fan installation

Ah yes 2000 MkII Estate with PAS. All fitted and wired up, as I said has a double Make relay, that disconnects the warning light from the motor when switched off. Manual override and an 88-93 switch fitted to the top of the radiator. I'll fit a lower one if it runs too hot. Still theres hope for my ...

Hi Alec, agreed, but I did not buy one from Kenlowe.

So back to my original question. Has anyone fitted one behind the radiator and if so what make and size was it? :?:

Re: Electric fan installation

:lol: :lol: 8) I got confused about this to, but; The curved bladed fans with the surrounding ring work more efficiently when rotating in one direction than the other. Fit it in the engine bay and you want it to suck the air through the radiator. Fit it to the other side and if you do not change any...

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...
