Thought I'd beeter do some work!
« on: May 04, 2008, 21:31:45 PM »
My 24v has been off the road for 18 months due to it boiling up  

Thought I'd have a go and try to fix it

New water pump and thermostat


Cosworth fans and new radiator


Painted a few bits


Plenty of room between the fans and the bottom pulley



Ebay bargain, EBC Greenstuff pads, £28 delivered


Pulled her out, and gave her a wash





Short video clip, no my timing isn't rattling, just the way the camera picked it up, oh, its running on gas too! Thats what the 2 pipe are on the intake elbow, they feed the mixer

Possible reason why she was boiling, the thermostat was stuck closed!

Thats would be Lancaster Road, in Shrewsbury

Yes, its the same car  and I'm the same owner

It does look purple in certain light, but, its not a ford colour, its a honda colour

It hasn't changed, we still get truck drivers asking where cat is now!
