Clearance Between Rad And Fuel Tank
Posted 13 May 2016 - 06:06 PM
Anyone had a problem with this? Overheating? Also a bit concerned about the fan blowing hot air through the rad onto the fuel tank. Should I be?
Cheers for any thoughts on this guy's.

By Fuel Tank I assume you mean the charcol canister
I think they are talking about a Zcars rear engine , with front rad with tank just behind
tank warms up sometimes

Yes this is tight , tight for any fan to squeeze in that gap, lots of Zcars run a vented bonnet to aid with cooling in traffic, You should be fine as it should not overheat the car, but the alloy tank can get warm, You can but an alloy back plate on the rad, and place fins that vent it away from the tank to the sides, but for the hassle and money its cheaper to buy a vented bonnet. I will do the job.
You can get a new one with a BINI S type vent in the front for £50.
