  1. Link didn't work for me, but I found the PDF after a search. Thanks for the information. Let me know how you get on.
  2. That's more than the thermostat. So when the thermostat is fully open, for a while it's going to be drawing water from the radiator to try and cool the engine, and actually be raising temperature until the fan kicks in (in traffic). I assumed you would want it set to less?
  3. The thermostat in the engine is 88 degrees. Can anyone recommend what temperature switch should be used in the radiator for the cooling fan?
  4. I used a header tank from a mini s.

    Fuel tank seal

    I got a plate and pipe TIG welded on. Decided the rubber seal would be more hassle.
  6. The loom is still a working progress. I am following the diagram posted. I will use the old engine loom as unmodified as possible to get the engine started, and once running will be removing as much as possible.
  7. Ah, it's written on the ESC unit.
  8. The wiring diagram is all good, but does anyone have the numbering for the ESC 2 plug so I know which one is PIN 1 and which one is PIN 25 etc?
  9. Thanks for the information, on closer inspection as you said the temperature sensor for the ESC does appear to be surface mount, and a separate temperature sensor is in the block for the guage. Looks like I need to wire in a power hold relay (I was asking because it seems to be missing from my loom. Great.)
  10. So what do people do then, fit an extra sensor, go without a temperature guage, or just not connect the ESC up to the sensor? (I can't work out why it needs to know the temperature)
  11. Maybe the remainder stays in the oil filter?
  12. Thanks. What is the power hold relay for? What does the ESC use the water temperature for? Wouldn't this sensor be needed for the temperature guage on the dash, can it be shared?

    Fuel tank seal

    Agreed, it is a TIG process for sure.
  14. I am looking at the wiring loom for the 2b and the new loom seems to make sense. It looks like I need to take some things from the old loom so that the 2.0 pinto (carburettor) ESC module has its own circuit for the engine. I don't fully understand what this module is for other than is seems to do something with the distributor. Does anyone have a list of the stuff it must connect to for the engine to work?

    Fuel tank seal

    Thanks for the information. I was considering making a stainless steel pipe and getting it welded to the tank as opposed to bolting it. Will have to consider the options.
