    Electric Fan Fitting

    Yeah I reckon I probably do need to keep it where it is and work on the air flow. The small nose cone opening on a seven is a lot smaller than most car grills, which doesn't help. Looking to feed extra air through top of nose cone by making a mesh cover3d opening..also as put, need to block all around the rad to maximise flow through it.

    Electric Fan Fitting

    I have one mounted as you are looking to fit it, and it sucks air through the radiator. I run the fan from start up, as from experience the engine warms very quickly, so i dont need it warming 1st. Been good till now, but in this heat i'm thinking of trying to mount it in front of radiator, which is a bit more difficult in the 3a than a 2b.

    Slow Filling Up

    Must admit one thing my 3 doesn't suffer from. Can fill it with about 30 quid and it fills super quick, got to be careful you don't spill it all over the back of the car.

    Fuel Issue?

    Have you pulled the fuel pipe of the t-piece and ran the pump to see how much fuel is being pumped? Check the air vacuum is working by looking into each carb to see if the flaps rise and fall when lifted. Dirty carbs, blocked jets. Balance out of sync, although should still run better than what you've experienced. Checkout my video after i balanced the carbs the other day. Check out this video
