Water temperature sender VDO

I think I have found the right sender for the VDO water temperature gauge. Having contacted VDO they suggested 2 senders. One has a switch incorporated in it with 2 terminals. and another with one terminal. I went for that one. I suppose you could use the other to switch a fan if wanted. The one I g...

AUXILIARY RADIATOR

I have discovered a leak in my aux rad. I have taken it off and just linked the hoses so there will still be a flow. Now I have to consider if I am going to build another from a Mocal oil cooler or find another rad to use like a motorcycle rad or just leave it linked. My thoughts are I don’t really ...

KYB GAS-A-JUST SHOCK ABSORBERS

I have now fitted new KYB GAS A JUST SHOCKS. They have transformed the ride. The old failed GAZ shocks are in the scrap bin. That was a very expensive fail. So far I can highly recommend the KYB shocks. See my other post on GAZ shock absorbers

Re: OIL THERMOSTAT FITTING TO MINI ERA TURBO

I recently drove a new VW transporter, It has a oil temperature display on the center console. After a fairly long trip it had reached 98 degrees. That is the temperature oil should run at to work properly.

Re: OIL THERMOSTAT FITTING TO MINI ERA TURBO

Done 3 trips to car shows and the oil thermostat seems to be working fine. I got the temperature to 80 degrees on the sump gauge while the oil cooler gauge didn’t rise at all so the thermostat is doing its job. I am very pleased with the results and happy my oil is reaching a good working temperatur...

Re: OIL THERMOSTAT FITTING TO MINI ERA TURBO

(It starts at 50) the other gauge I have connected to the sump had started to rise off it’s stop but it’s first increment is...
