Series 3 wire suppliers

Hello all, I’m looking to modify some of my looms. I’m finding it really difficult to find a wire supplier. I want to stay with normal wire codes but am having difficulty getting wire with the correct colour traces. Br, B, G, R, are easy but white with a purple trace....mmm? Anyone recommend a suppl...

Re: E7 resistant fuel line

Hi everyone,I must confess to being slightly perturbed that no one has this information, can any forum member recommend a website for information? Has anyone done this task themselves...I’m sure they have.
Any info much appreciated.

Re: Rad air control flaps

Have you seen viton rubber flaps at the temperatures that are expected?
Have you seen the Coolcat fans on high speed?
Mounting on the front of the rad is therefore a pointless excercise!
Having seen the flaps working,?, they seem to cope .period.

Re: Rad air control flaps

Spacers on the ends of the fan mounting “ spiders” to bring the tips of the fans back to assist in air flow ( according to a Cranfield engineer I know, something to do with tip vortex!!.) and the bottom flap is inverted.
Mounting that lot in front of the rad must be an interesting excercise .
Any pics

Re: Rad air control flaps

This is the finished cowl with viton rubber flaps and two speed Coolcat type fans.
It works a treat....anyone spot the deliberate change..? I thought I’d try it and it works!

I won’t send the boys round if I get more than one idea of dimensions......just in case anyone was uncertain of the position. There will be no liability issues.!!!

E7 resistant fuel line

I’m about to pull off my injector set and allied fuel lines from my EFi, to replace the old and in some places slightly perished rubber connections. I am intending to replace with SAE j30 R9 hose, but before I start, I would like to know the internal diameter of the original pipes to preorder the ma...

Re: Rad Rebuild

Just to follow up the last post. I’ve ordered some high current relays to handle the “high speed” fan settings,I plan to have these either manually operational / automatic on an other sensor. However the placement of this sensor is yet to be decided, I have an urge to sense the engine oil temp and t...

Re: Rad Rebuild

Kevin, I have run the car with the cowl as per original and in its slightly modified form, the extra air flow allowed by the very flexible viton sheet permits quite serious use without resorting to fans but when they do come on the temp drops quickly and they’re only on for a minute or so. I tried o...

Re: Rad Rebuild

Mark, Yes I agree with you and the previous posts. My PO had already installed an additional switch under the dash to activate the old fans independently, I shall remove this and allow my modern upgrade to the otter switch to work the low speed feed to the new fans, and use the switch on the dash to...

Re: Rad Rebuild

Mark good to hear.
Did you notice that the bottom flap is reversed?
It is arranged so that DJing normal flight more air gets past the cowl, but when you put the fans on there is so much draw that it flaps shut with a slap.
Where did you wire up to ...to the relay feeds

Re: Steering Rack fail safes

Just noticed this thread and thought I’d chip in. I’m “going over”the front end of my S3 inc the steering system, during the C19 event. My rack is mounted as shown in the pics below, ie. the Safety bolts/bushes are rubber bonded bushes that fit quite firmly in the larger holes of the main mounting p...

Rad Rebuild

I’ve just finished rebuilding my “thicker” radiator. With new two speed fans and new air control flaps with viton rubber sheet. The air flow is superb.
