Re: electric water pump

Do you have a heater core fitted to Demi’s the screen?

Could it be that that circuit allows enough fluid flow to mean a sizeable volume is circulating that way and avoiding the radiator?

Just another thing to consider!

Re: electric water pump

Is your radiator actually working? There was another thread on here where so much was looked at and eventually the radiator checked and it had slugged up badly and only a few cores were flowing cool and through them. Check the temperature of the whole core not just specific places. Does all the air ...

Re: Do I have a problem?

Well at least you have the cause. What would I do. In order I would go Oil the bearing surfaces, WD40 may work. A second or stronger spring may work. Pin the shaft so it cannot twist meaning all the pedals have to move on the shaft. Replace pedal box Replace pedal box and reconfigure master sizes an...

Re: Do I have a problem?

Another thought.

Are the pedals mounted on a common shaft!
If so are they dragging on that so when one moves (accelerator) the next pedal ( brake) is also moving?

Re: Do I have a problem?

Have you tried clamping the vacuum pipe, Or removing and blocking it, perhaps mole grips on the pipe.and take it for a drive and see if the same happens with the servo not connected/functioning? Be careful though as you will need good leg muscles to stop it. If it is anything like the GT40, I remove...

Re: Hello all

There was one that I saw when I lived in Middlesex, saw it on the 316 Ashford / Sunbury area and it was modified a lot! Must have been running 14 inch wide rear tyres and burbled along through the traffic.

Probably 5/6 years ago

Re: HELP - FIRST CRANK - NO OIL PRESSURE

Renault 5 is the shortest filter that will fit.

Re: HELP - FIRST CRANK - NO OIL PRESSURE

If you have a remote filter could you connect pipes together to avoid filter altogether? And then crank and see if oil flows. Before start Up fit filter again! And last thought are you using an aftermarket take off from oil pump? Is it allowing flow? Could you put the filter back there without remot...

Re: HELP - FIRST CRANK - NO OIL PRESSURE

I have never had this problem myself, but somewhere on here someone had a no oil flow problem, and found his oil filter had the valve that stops backflow fitted incorrectly/ wrong way round. Or was it that it had a valve and should not of had one? Sorry grey matter fades. But simply .......Try a dif...

Re: HELP - FIRST CRANK - NO OIL PRESSURE

Add another couple of litres of oil so that the level is higher than the pump that way it will definitely prime. Or remove the dizzy and crank the pump with an electric drill and a bar that will sit in the slot normally filled by the dizzy.

Oil will flow ..... eventually

Re: Whining alternator problem

Where is your fuel pump? Could it be letting go causing it to whine? If it has ever sucked air it will start making a whine!

Re: How many amps?

I can actually remember the days when 30 amps would cover the entire electrical load. :D Add a spotlight - as you did - and you were in trouble. Sounds like my old Morris Minor out in Africa, lights were dismal, so I added two spot lights, the generator could not keep up, so with spots on I had to ...

Re: How many amps?

In the GT Idling on a hot evening, lights on, radiator fans running, ecu, low pressure pump, high pressure pump, cockpit fresh air fan, and twin 4 amp fans blowing air through engine bay, volt meter dropped to less than 10v. When driving again it took a while for the volt meter to get to its normal ...
