Great photos Roger. What software did you use to overwrite the copyright message on the image, and was it Windows or Mac compatible please.

Re: Towing with a 6a

I thought an old 2 berth Sprite caravan from the 1970's would look appropriate plus these early caravans are not that heavy. I also like the Eriba range but they are quite pricey. If anyone discovers the kerb side weight of a 6a please drop a note. Wikipedia list it as 2,762 lb.

Towing with a 6a

Thinking ahead for next years hols I was contemplating towing a small caravan and was wondering what the maximum weight I could tow with my 6a. I have read that the caravan should not exceed 85% of the kerbside weight of the tow car. Is this correct and what is the kerbside with of my 6a please. Do ...

Re: Aftermarket electric cooling fans

Yes, no problem - actually it strikes me that I should mention that it's the third Thursday today, so it's Rusper noggin night normally a chance to meet Geoff, who's a proper electrical guru, unlike me who's an electrical numpty who thinks "Ohm's Law" was a '70s TV detective series! :lol: Regret un...

Re: Aftermarket electric cooling fans

Personally, I was unconvinced that leaving the fan running after the engine was off made any material difference, and like Keith, I was nervous about walking off leaving a high-drain appliance running, so the SS1, which was wired that way, I've now re-wired so the fan goes off with the ignition. I'...

Re: Improving airflow

Thanks for all the suggestions. As the rad was taken out earlier this week to fit a replacement steering rack I will ask the mechanic if he felt that the rad was serviceable before reinstalling it. Can I ask what is the correct setting for the electric fan please.

Re: Improving airflow

I already have the the bonnet set with the trailing edge lifted slightly to let air out of the engine bay. I was looking to get more air through the rad. The existing grille size is reasonable but not that big so more airflow hopefully will help keep the water temp down as my electric fan seems to c...

Improving airflow

On a 6a has anyone considered the benefits of relocating the front registration plate and then removing the black plastic panel (part of the bumper) and fitting a mesh grille to create more air in the engine bay. The number plate would probably have to be a self adhesive one stuck on the bonnet.

Re: How long to fit a steering rack?

Thanks for all the replies and suggestions. I ordered a replacement from Graham Walker which arrived next day but due to poor packing/handling one of the pipes had been crushed !! My local garage took it in their stride and reused a pipe off my old rack. It took only a few hours including the extra ...

How long to fit a steering rack?

How long should it take to replace a power steering rack on a 6a. The job is beyond me so have sought quotes from local garages all of which vary! Any help much appreciated.

Did you end up buying the car or if not was there a reason for not going ahead with it. Regards
