Re: mounting ef thermos 2 xe 3 core radiator

Its just a case of making brackets to hold them solid to the radiator. try to cover as much of the radiator as you can... I used 2 fans to do this.

or if ya feeling clever... buy a set of ef or el fans and try and make them fit.

I have pics of mine but dont know how to post a pic....

anyone..?

Re: mounting ef thermos 2 xe 3 core radiator

To mount the EF thermo's you need to drill a 2-3mm hole through the plastic on the thermo's. Then run a screw though to the original mounting holes for the shroud. Thats the top section.

Then there should be a line of thin metal running down the engine side of the radiator. Drill two holes small enough for a small zip ties to go through. Run the zip tie through one hole, then under the thin metal strip and back out the other hole. Thats the bottom mounted securely.
