very neat job on the fan mounting.  that's another idea of yours i may have to use  ;D

 

hopefully that's the end of the problems and you can get out and enjoy the fruits of your labour !

Fingers crossed that'll be the last time you pull the engine out, Alex!! Following your progress on Instagram too, it's heart breaking when you have to pull the bloody thing out again!

Hoping that's the last time the gearbox has to be opened up! As above, really neat solution for the mounting of the fan  =]

Haha, nice simple solution and no need to drill anything. I stuck some rubber on them to so it doesn't slip and scratch etc.

 

Yeah, I've been out enjoying it this afternoon since it's sunny.

Definitely, fun doing it every couple of weeks >_<. Yeah, so annoying having to take everything off and refit, the thing I hate the most it scraping all the gaskets off :mmkay:

Yeah hopefully I won't see the inside of it for a while. Cheers, It got tested out today to, it was quite hot and sitting in a bit of traffic, the fan kicked in. I'm slightly tempted to get a smaller water pump pulley so the mechanical fans spins faster at idle but that may be too much then as it sits and normal with the larger pulley while driving along.
