  1. rebuilding a 205 efi engine to replace my 1.8 and noticed inside of thermostat housing almost corroded through, if anyone has a stat housing kicking about under that bench in the garage that we all have , and find one in half decent nick pm me please ...............they want silly money for ones that are in about the same condition as mine on fleabay ! Thanks for your time Derek
  2. I have a similar problem that i am too lazy to fix. if i put my hazards on then turn off the ignition engine still runs , i think you have managed to wire the non ignition side of the electrics to the ignition on side of the electrics. in my case its 2 wires on the hazard switch. I would check your feed for your fan and also where you have earthed your fan . Being a cobbler you are the worst shod guy in the street ....... I'm an electronics engineer. Hey ho Best wishes Derek
