Actually, he can't get the clutch fan off. Yes I'm turning it the right(wrong?) way But as soon as the fooker comes off, in go thermo fans!





I think my over heating problem lies within the water pump, the radiator seems fine. I'll rip the pump out as soon as I can get the freaking fan off.

Re: oooh moi gawd moite, Rob has fullllshik mods!

ooooook, problem found......the thermostat wasn't opening. Shouldn't the upper radiator hose be cold if that were the case? I assumed since it was hot the thermostat was fine, just chucked it in some boiling water to double check and the thing isn't opening.

Grrrrrr, it's only 6 weeks old!

Re: oooh moi gawd moite, Rob has fullllshik mods!

I suggest visit the local machanic, 5 bucks in the hand he will loosen it for you, if its real close drive home without it, otherwise keep revs really low and it will be easy to take off when you get home, they are designed to tighten as you drive, so it will be locked solid, and even then sometimes loctite gets added on top.

Good Luck,
Jason

Re: oooh moi gawd moite, Rob has fullllshik mods!

your motor spins the other direction to my car.. the v8 spins anti clockwise when you're facing the front of the car.

put a spanner on the nut, and hit it with a hammer in the same direction of the direction the engine turns.

Re: oooh moi gawd moite, Rob has fullllshik mods!

Oh and the main problem with the clutch fan bolt is I can turn it (with a set of multigrips, what size is the bolt so I can go buy a spanner tomorrow?), but it spins the water pump pulley as well, and I've got no real way to holding it.

The hose is flushing the cooling system out, just shoved it in the thermostat housing cos it seemed the best place to put it.

Re: oooh moi gawd moite, Rob has fullllshik mods!

My car overheats aswell. I think its the thermostat... takes a while to warm up, then gets too hot.

Will be doing a thermo conversion when i get the dosh, so keep the pics coming :)

.... just realise i got the same car as u :D

Re: oooh moi gawd moite, Rob has fullllshik mods!

if you think the waterpump is suspect anywayz, just undo the water pump bolts and replace it. - problem solved - no more clutch fan and new pump. i cant remember exactly how the pulley comes off but you could always get a pulley from the wreckers
