Re: 3.0 Electric fan

Very disappointed to read you are removing the wiring to the LED strobe lights, or did I misunderstand? :lol: they have come out for now - to be honest only a few of the lights on the strip actually worked! There were two main sets, one pointing into the footwell from underneath the glove box, and ...

Re: Laser 1600

Fair play to cracking on with it - also a little odd that the coil is upside down...?? Never seen that before haha :lol:

Re: 3.0 Electric fan

Is that Spaghetti Carbonara or Spaghetti hoops in there? My Laser was bad with two aftermarket alarms DIY wired in there but that takes it to a new level! Seriously Danny I would, with the help of wiring diagrams, remove the lot and start again. Most of the Ford wiring is wrapped in loom tape excep...

3.0 Electric fan

Afternoon all! Just wondering about whether an electric fan was standard fitment (I would guess the one I have isn't) and whether it's really needed and/or the best way to wire it in if I keep it? I spent most of Saturday pulling out a mess of wires behind the dash! Aftermarket alarm wired into the ...

Think this is the easiest way of looking at it - much easier than trying to translate a Haynes diagram!

Re: Thermostat of death

I always lean on the side of caution with my rads - if it goes one day and cooks the engine you're worse off than you would be if you got a new rad or had the current one re-cored... my thoughts anyway :)

I do like the black car black wheels look, but black RS4 wheels just look unnatural to me - obviously your choice but looks like a lovely car :beer:

Re: New car

As the others have said welcome to the forum. You sure will pick up several friendly tips on here. Indeed here is one - when you get the car for goodness sake get those black wheels painted back to silver!!! :lol: :welcome: Paul. Couldn't agree more, looks lovely but not a fan of those black wheels...

Re: A small repair...

Looks great John - shiny as heck (as always!)

I bet you'll be glad knowing it's been cut out, will set your mind at ease for the future for sure.

Also I hope if you're referring to me about 'amazing rebuilds' you don't have too high of an expectation! :shock:

Cheers

Re: Refurbished DashBoards

Hi all just a quick update re this. Two issues, firstly finding a mint dash is an issue and who wants to pay upwards of £500? So I thought with that in mind I'd have a go. Now I am not very skilled and no expert but I had some isopon bumper filler and ordered some textured paint and gave it a go. T...

Re: Laser 1600

a 2L cam will definitely liven up the engine a bit, I noticed a difference for sure when I changed up from a standard 1600 cam - depends how much you want to improve it by? Could always go one step further and get a Kent FR32 cam?

Re: Carb overhaul

I've seen this guy around on tinternet but never used personally - also depending on how much a refurbished costs it could be worth just buying a new carb (last I checked a 32/36 is around £200?) Also I'm not sure about the manifold but Karius are the brand that still provide original exhaust parts ...
