Re: Colling Fan upgrade #2

Cool cat in fact is excellent and very efficient, compared to the other fans the main advantage is the only arround 6/7 amps needed at full speed ... order it directly in US, this is what I did

Thanks for the revotec controller information :salute:

Re: Colling Fan upgrade #2

I'm interesting as well in the radtec thermo switch kit as it allow to switch on the fan with the temperature you set up. Do you know on which hose it should be fitted for being efficient knowing that this is a 38mm internal diameter ? I have a cool cat as well this is really efficient in both flow ...

Re: brakes bleeding S1 4.2

issue found, it was it was the adjustement of the pedal height which did not allow the master cylinder to open enough and allow the DOT4 to come back into the reservoir !

Bleeding has been done again and it's ok now !

Thanks for the different advices

Re: HD8 carb issue

I am interested to still get an answer about how far down the jet the fuel should be seen and settle. MarkRado say 5mm ? Is this correct ? Now you can see why I comment about needle thickness now relevant to the initial problem as described. John : the flooding was not perhaps what you and I unders...

Re: SU carb blockage?

I had the same issue after the complete rebuild of the car. My pump was running but no petrol arrived to the filter, I took a seringue, plugged it on the pipe after the filter and vaccumed in order to have the pump properly feeded. If the petrol filter is not full it is a pump issue / fuel lines / f...

Re: alternator not charging S1 4.2

I’d start by checking if the alternator relay is working. It’s located on the LHS mudshield, and disconnects the alternator from the battery when the ignition is off. I don't have alternator relay on my car (65) I think it appeared on later cars (67/68). Which version of 4tr do you have? There’s ve...

Re: alternator charging and ignition light S1 4.2

To test the alternator with the engine running, measure the voltage across the battery terminals. It should be around 14 volts. Hello, I know I have 12,5V this is why I know the alternator is not charging at all and I have several questions : -How to test the alternator itself engine running ? -How...

Re: HD8 carb issue

Not sure I follow the logic. The carb shouldn’t flood regardless of needle type, or even with no needle or piston at all. logic is very simple engine and piston movement create a intake under pressure, which generate piston displacement, the thinner is the needles the bigest is the gap with the jet
