  21. fair point Mr K .As I said the guy would I bought the fans from .advised 2 inches away from rad with no shroud .Mike
  22. Hi guys .Still here .Had a temperature control box fitted .That gives me a 2nd temperature reading . The box reads lower lower than the dash gauge .it cuts the fans in and out .But for some reason they seem to be taking a load at idle .allowing the car to stall sometimes .i know I can up the idle speed .as you know my car has a 3.9 rover v8 engine fitted ..Not done away with fan shroud yet .but spoke to the guy that I bought the 3 spall 9 inch fans .He said to mount fans approx 50 mm from rad .we will mont them on new brackets welded to rad frame ....Thanks all .Mike
