  1. Hi John .car moted .had problems with temperature sender .need a bigger battery .carbs need setting up I think .gearbox oil to be changed .rad cowl to sort the list goes on .Hope you are well .Mike
  2. Thought about cutting .But not sure how I would fit fans with rad bolted up in car .....Why did lotus use a cowl for the ford fans .Maybe just something to fix the fans to .i suppose all these things are built to a cost to help profit ...And of course might of be ok when new .Thanks for all your replies Mike
  3. As above with all the comments .i say get the rad recorded if needed ....Mike
  4. Hi Barry .not using the lotus shroud .Made made one folded it up from alloy sheet ..all beaded to add strength .fans fitted with Rivi nuts to shroud .. .Mike
  5. Barry .Dan .Thanks for your replies .to remove shroud rad will need to come out .bummer .Still have the lotus shroud .i am using 3 span 9 inch fans ..so do you think there is not enough air flow and my shroud is restictive.were as the lotus one lets more air through with the 4 bladed ford fans ..Thanks again .....Mike Sorry Dan .the cover has been cut in half .But not on at the moment ....Mike
  6. Hi all .well not got off to a great start since my car has been moted .Fist problem temperature sender stopped working .ok buy another one from local stockist for rover v8 on. Carbs .to big .ok orde reared another from merl in motor sport for a smiths gauge .wrong thread we think the engine might of used a strange thread.so mate made up a adaptor from engine to take the new sender from merl in .think it's reading high .after using a digital gun on it .So I have bought a kit from car builders solution .that uses a probe that can be fitted to a coolant pipe to show temperature ..It will also operate fans .ok .secound bit of advice needed .had a new fan shroud made to take my new spal fans .thhe lotus shroud uses the fiesta fans that must allow air to go through .not sure if mine allow the same amount of air flow through the rad .will speak to the place where they came from ....just interested in your coolective wisdom ....3 fans fitted .do I need to add holes to shroud ....don't know .ZAny help would be good as I seem to be stuck lol.....Mike
