I bought it because it had been rebuilt about 30k ago.
Shame the gearbox hadn't it was toast!
sounds like a good buy then
Do you ever get to shelsley walsh breakfast club, next one's Sunday 8th July, day after FCS
Never been, only lived here a year. I'll have to try and get to that.
Are you going?
A lot of our customers do shelsley.
I think we're a sponsor of something to do with the healey sprite's.
With any luck I should be
Usually a good morning & the foods great. There should be a few of us next month
Not far from me either.
How did you get on Nick?
Hope it all went well.
Sh*t if I'm honest
All good until I got to Leeds, we think the stat is ******
Its a good job I was playing with my RS monitor on route
it was hunting & every so often very hot, luckily Paul wouldn't map it so I've dropped it back to mark, I couldn't stop with it as we had a viewing for the wife's car, he's already changed a couple of hose's, I'm yet to hear about the stat as time was getting on
Sounds like something that would happen to me!
At least no damage done I suppose.
Did you drive it or get it towed back?
drove, a steady 70 back to MRS, anything over 75 temps would shoot up. Funny thing, the temp gauge stopped at the 2nd line
Mark's gonna try & get it to RST tomorrow. At least I got a good shot on the rollers lol
Hope it gets sorted.
fingers crossed..fan blowing the right way round??
I was gonna suggest this, but at 70 and 75mph the fan does nothing Pav.
The fans always been bang on ok
Until this I never really heard it come on much
I’ve spoken to Mark & he’s changed the stat & adjusted a couple of hoses. It’s running loads cooler now. He’s gonna try & get to RST tomorrow
Hoping you have some good news Nick?
Very good news,
new stat fitted, temps are were they need to be, nice & stable, not shooting up & no hunting
also, forge satin black cooler
lowered coolant tank, satin black bracket & filter's modified & adjusted
At least I got a pic yesterday, bit different from the usual RR pics
Love this pic now
So, we're just waiting on Paul to say pop it up for mapping
& the wife's S3 sold yesterday, deposit left, just waiting for him to settle up & collect
Good news all round.
Need to have a look and see how your tank's mounted.
Might change my stat too whilst I'm at it.
Zoom in you can see the black bracket. You'll have to come to shelsley on the 8th
