On topic

Seasons greetings.

Has anyone here ever moved one of those 2m x 2m outdoor spa's? The type with the timber box they sit in...

How heavy is one of these things and how many blokes are needed to muscle one onto a trailer and off again?

Cheers,

Emu

Back to mechanical fan

Current set up - 308 with Mondeo thermo fans, on at 95 off at 90.

With sumnmer here my engine bay is hotuer than normal and the engine reaches high temp which causes the fans to be on more often. Therefore I have decided to go back to mechanical fan plus a single thermo in front of radiator for peace of mind.

My understanding is that a mechanical fans should be used with a shroud. However Torana V8 shrouds used for air con are not available and the HQ ones have issues with top of fan fouling the shroud.

I also want to known which fan to use,the standard fan or the clutch fan, and is a shroud needed?

just readin the gregorys v8 hk series notced the 253 had the same carb as the 186s!

a mate told me to get an air cleaner off a 253 for the 186s as they were the same..mainly as i was whinging about the price the gold ones fetch for the 186s,i was just readin the gregorys and blow me down hes right..got me thinking which donk id prefer(253 or 186s) and id still say the 186s,i have had a few and still like the sixers,that said never had a car with a 253,so i may be biased here..my way of thinking is if i was ordering a car from factory.
obviously we would choose the 350 now..

TH400 pan

Hi guys,
I'm struggling with my turbo 400 pan. Just had an expensive th400 complete rebuild. The guys at the automatics shop pulled off my trans pan because it leaked. It was a chrome one off eBay. I got a standard used pan for them and that one unfortunately also leaks. Can anyone recommend a good, no leaks, standard sized th400 pan. Dont want my expensive rebuild to go to waste or trans fluid on the garage floor...
