Re: Viscous Fan

Maniak the best way to clean a radiator is to take off the tanks. It is then easy to see if any passages are blocked. The blocked passages are cleaned by pushing a steel rod through. Thereafter it is acid cleaned and then the radiator is re-assembled. As JG says this is a job for Silverton or somebo...

Re: Engine replacements - Patrol

Hi Guys Having done a number of conversions myself, these are my thoughts: I have never done or been involved with a conversion where the car ended up being more reliable than it had been. Once in a while it has been close though. However as a general rule, the more extreme the changes, the more roo...

The hinges on the left and right doors on my car are the same, although the right-hand door has the catches top and bottom to support it. However a ladder on the...

Re: Viscous Fan

Hi Maniac I may be treading on some toes here, but it seems to me the chances are 90% that your blockage is either in the radiator or the thermostat, and there is no need to remove the engine to get to either of them.

The car runs much cooler and the temperature is also much more constant. One of these days I will get/make a cowling, but it certainly now seems as if the viscous coupling ...

Re: Air Filter Service

Hi Dave Firstly, I want to make it clear that I am not a mechanic. what I am is a guy who designs control valves. My feeling is that a relatively small filter not only starves the engine of air, but also the air that does go through is moving at relatively high velocity, which means it is more likel...

Re: LSD Oil - urgent
