Re: KIMI 2 - 1983 Series 2

Thanks Ian. Nothing special used to clean the washer bottle, just soapy solution and stiff brush. It did clean up better than I expected, and most of the grime was on the outside, so easily accessible. Next challenge is the unreliable rear fog light switch. I have taken it apart and am trying to fix...

Re: KIMI 2 - 1983 Series 2

The refurbed oil cooler is now re-installed. I've applied POR15 treatment to the worst areas of chassis rail corrosion in the area around the front of the car (all surface rust - no holes :) ), to the undertray and to the bumper. Cleaned headlamp washer bottle and installed SPAL radiator fan. Just b...

Re: S2 and S3 Fuel Tank not direct swap

James, happy to buy the S2 tank if you want to sell on? Might be easier then to put the money towards an S3 tank?

I have a small leak somewhere in one of my S2 tanks, so would be put to good use :)

Let's hope the forecast changes! So unlucky after many weeks with no rain :(

Re: KIMI 2 - 1983 Series 2

I'm using the cheap and cheerful "bulb/expansion" type thermostat. Not so neat to see, but it works superbly. Like this one s-l640.jpg Installed in KIMI 2: https://farm1.staticflickr.com/844/43650479001_7b59c0b699_b.jpg Not as neat as the Davies-Craig thermistor types, but it does the job well enoug...

Re: KIMI 2 - 1983 Series 2

After some testing in this extreme heat (30+ ambient here the last few days) I'm not happy my cooling solution is adequate, so a 16" SPAL fan arrived today :D I used the SPAL data sheet to see if this should theoretically fit before ordering and I've now tested the fit by placing the fan in position...

Re: Beaulieu Simply Japanese Show, Sunday 29 July 2018

That wall looks a bit dodgy lads ffs don't park there again :o :o :o :lol: :lol: It's been there a few hundred years, I'll bet it'll stay up a little bit longer ;) Gwyn and I will most likely rock up in my RX-8 as I'm not happy with the 12" electric fan being able to keep the FB engine cool in the ...

Re: KIMI 2 - 1983 Series 2

Hi Danny. I'm aware of the limitations but considered that some cooling of one area was better than nothing, at zero cost in parts. The series 2 rad fan shroud does not allow me to place any more fans without cutting the shroud, which I'm reluctant to do. The shroud does cover 75% of the oil cooler,...

Re: Beaulieu Simply Japanese Show, Sunday 29 July 2018

OK, so Pete and I are planning to join the 30+ Rotary convoy th: It's a short trip, but in previous years it has get some interesting looks, and smiles, from other motorists and pedestrians along the way. Especially as one of the convoy cars stopped to temporarily block a roundabout to let us all go...
