SS1 Racer - C686CCR

Fit new water pump and bolt engine back together. Hopefully fill coolant for the last time. Done - had to replace the thermostat gasket AGAIN :evil: Brace the boot to stop it becoming a parachute. Feed battery cable the last 2 feet. Don’t forget fuel pump feed and fuel gauge wire. Weld cage feet in...

Corky's Scimitars and other short stories

There’s a bit of a difference on the K series crossmember (and I have a feeling they did change part way through SS1 production, dropping the 4th bolt on each side). I managed to score a “slightly singed” K-series one from Mr.A to give me a bit more room - there’s not as much extra space as you thin...

If you’re worried about missing 5 or 10g of metal off that side, chop some equal chunks off the opposite side :mrgreen:

In terms of a "chunked" pulley, there's an awful lot of CVHs running around with equally incomplete bottom pulleys (caused by heavy leverage to change the cam belt). Worst that will happen is your belt might wear a bit quicker, but we're talking a lifespan of several thousand miles rather than the O...

Se5a running hot

Fan comes on usually at an indicated 92-ish degrees or so.

If the fan lamp was on whilst going along 30mph roads, I wouldn't expect it to be the windmill effect.

Se5a running hot

Also sounds like a stuck thermostat? Try a new one - or even running without one & seeing if the characteristics remain the same, which would rule out the thermostat. Ditto radiator ducting as Jim says. If the fan is running, that means the rad is full of very hot water, no unlikely to be the therm...

As the author you can always delete your own post, Dennis (the exception being the first post of a new thread that has had a reply) - or just modify it with the revised drawing (but then th...

Firstly, can anyone tell me whether the tube from the nearside wheel box to the offside wheel box should have a bend just before it enters the wheel box? Pretty sure it shouldn’t - there should be one gentle curve just after (?) it goes through the firewall. A quick look at the parts list will show...
