It needs to flow the Sam WA as it does when you are driving, so towards the engine.

General Discussion / Cooling System Continued
« Last post by Bargeman on April 19, 2018, 10:29:27 PM »
Following on from my temperature guage problem which did turn out to be the sensr - thanks Ian!
I have an electric fan attached to the engine side of the radiator on my Bulldog. 
My question is should this be blowing backwards directly onto the engine, or forwards onto the radiator when it cuts in?

General Discussion / Re: My Float Chamber is leaking (ooh err missus)

Ian has said it all. I am disappointed there are no wise words to add.

I had a boat with this problem last year. Hole in the float.

Next time I went down there the only thing I could see was the white navigation light sticking five inches out of the water.

Is that off topic???

I am with Ian, the top of the flotechamber is at atmospheric pressure and doesn’t require a seal I think some did use a thin paper gasket

General Discussion / Castle Combe Circuit or Le Mans Classic
« Last post by John on April 17, 2018, 10:57:56 AM »
Hi all,

We have got to make a choice?

I wrote to all club members in March, including a letter with potential events for the coming year. In the letter I offered a choice between Castle Combe Circuit Summer Action Festival or, slightly further afield, Le Mans Classic weekend.

The plan was to have a vote at the AGM at Stoneleigh Kit Car Show on Sunday 6th May 2018.

Unfortunately I have just received an e-mail from Castle Combe organisers demanding to know our final numbers by 4th May 2018, so waiting for the AGM is no longer an option. I will be e-mailing all club members and would appreciate all responses by April 30th.

Some of you may get the e-mail twice, for which I apologise. To ensure I get the widest coverage possible, I will be using the club membership roll, and the forum e-mail facility.

I will be attending the event with the highest number of votes, and will process the administration for that event, but there is nothing to stop someone else stepping up to the plate and organising the other.

Please look out for the e-mail, and simply respond with your favoured option.

Thanks.

Hi All,

Just another reminder about the National Kit Car Show at Stoneleigh starting Sunday 6th May 2018.

It would be superb to be able to meet and greet a whole load of new and old faces, so please make every effort to support the club, and I hope to see you there.

All the best.

General Discussion / Re: Temperature Guage

I fitted on years ago but I haven't seen them advertised for yonks. You are right - they don't come with sensor or gauge so what gauge you buy, preferably a capillary rather than electric one is up to you. 1/8th doesn't sound right though.
Why not just fix the one in the speedometer - it's probably the sensor that is malfunctioning anyway and that is a ten minute fix. Just short the sensor wire against the engine block and if the gauge goes to max then the sensor is at fault. If it is the gauge then you should be able to get a secondhand replacement on eBay cheaply and again they are not difficult to fit.
Is the fuel gauge working ok? Just mentioning it as it may be the voltage regulator that is faulty. On Marina's, and indeed most cars that have them, they are usually mounted on the rear of the speedometer, and again you should be able to get a replacement on eBay.

General Discussion / Temperature Guage
« Last post by Bargeman on April 13, 2018, 11:14:58 AM »
Hi All
I would like to fit a temperature guage to my Bulldog as I believe the one integral to the Speedometer is malfunctioning.
I am looking at what appears to be section which cuts into the Radiator Hose with the sensor screwing in to the top.
First question - how easy are these to fit and has anyone any experience of fitting one.
Secondly they seem to come without the sensor or guage - what should I be looking for as it says in most cases that the sensor diameter
should be 1/8th which seems a bit small?

Now where can I find a Delorean and a Flux capacitor? ;)

Just heard from Ally - he has a valid registration doc so it's just a case of MOT. Phew!
CD build manuals on the way.
