  1. What is the proper routing of the 2 AC hoses connected to the AC compressor, do they run through the triangular part of the chassis frame or under the chassis frame. Maybe someone has a pic of the proper routing?
  2. When are you fitting side skirts as done on the Lotus 79 ?
  3. The ring connector is / was used as a ground connection to the metal mounting brackets of the original fans. (the original fans had a metal housing). The spal fans are made of "plastic" omitting the use of the extra (in case of failure) ground connection. So you can omit the extra ring / ground connection. I have to do the same on may new radiator / spal fan combination.
  4. Drill a couple of small holes in the nut and or use a nut spliiter. Most of the times a nut splitter doesn't split / break the nut but in those case the nut will be stretched (making the inside of the nut bigger).
  5. A bad O2 sensor is also possible. Post some freescan logs you made. I'm sure someone is willing to look into those. They contain much more data besisides the mentioned IAC/ BLM.
  6. this is what I found on the Racebolt website. Give them a call maybe they have an answer. Some more info. 101.pdf
  7. How about going the titanium route? located in the UK
  8. The SKF Tensioner bearing number is VKM 14300
  9. Have you checked the sender unit in the tank? If it is similar to the one in an SE it is easy to check. Disconnect the the plug on top of the tank and use a potentiometer (variable resistor) connected to the connector. Observe the gauge as you turn the potentiometer (vary the resistance). If the gauge works it is the sender at fault. Use a potentiometer in the 200 Ohm range (I might be wrong) (a standard value is 270 Ohms).
  10. Hi Bibs, It looks like my account is basic again since yesterday instead of FFM. I guess a random bit is fallen over. Can you fix it?
  11. How about this one? A Hella Time relay (switch off delay) 996 152-131/
  12. The SE also has an RPM relay. A lot of generic Serial USB converters don't like (will not work) with the 8192 ALDL baudrate despite the registery "hacks". A long time ago I bought an PCMCIA serial interface (more expensive) which works like a dream with the odd 8192 baudrate. FYI if you use freescan (if you get the interface to work) it shows the right 26A and 26B errors but the descripstion are swapped. Espritmon is the way to go.
  13. Hi Bibs, On the 15th of Jan. the automatic payment for TLF went through, however I'm still not "Green". I just checked the PayPal payment and I think the amount is not correct. How can I rectify this and become Green again?
