Re: Aluminium Radiator

Thanks for the reply James, it is always better going on recommendation from someone who has had dealings with a specific company or an item.

Many Thanks

The link seems to have lost the cowl with electric fans for some reason,

Aluminium Radiator

Has anyone used Alicool UK for a Radiator?
I was just wondering what the build quality is like and is it a nice weld flow.

This is the kit I was looking at,

Re: 4 Speed Manual OD Gearbox Identification

Bill, As you have done the conversion many times is there a difference in the transmission tunnel width?
Is is tighter after the pedal box is installed and is there room to rest your left foot or does it have to hover over the clutch pedal?

Re: Series 3, go on persuade me!

Dear Malky, The bellhousing will bolt onto any v12 engine. What fits onto the gearbox end appears to be listed as gearboxes commonly found in America. It doesn't list Getrag or the Jaguar box like the standard box with compact type A which Ole has fitted. It doesn't mention how the release fork and...

Re: Series 3, go on persuade me!

Dear Andrew, You'll get 11mpg day and night out of an automatic US spec v12 and you can get up to 17mpg form a UK spec manual v12. A fuel injected car can do better than that - in theory I think 22-23mpg is possible with a proper mapped ignition to boot. If you want to discuss every possible type o...

Which Fuel Pump Should I Choose

I have just found out that the fuel pump fitted to my V12 OTS is an aftermarket one and I want to replace it with the proper spec but I see that SNG Barratt have the original one with points and also an electronic one, both of which look the same. My question is, which is better and why? Regards Malky

Series 3 power steering rack question

Can anyone tell me if an early power steering rack with the slightly offset tower would fit a later car that was fitted with the rack that has the more straight tower if that makes sense.

Vicarage do a power rack for an S3 based on a Ford rack but not sure if it would give you what you want.
