Those symptoms are also shown by a failing starter motor.
Not saying thats what you have, just pointing it out for others.

We were considering MYPONY but at $2500 we were not exactly jumping on that. Then, we found GT390 and MY390 are available. Any thoughts?


MY967
BR1967 (not sure if they go that high though, nice horse head on plate)
HI 390 (cool initials, and H is first!!!)
BRO67 (Bro for hookin up a Brother, 67 for year of car, nice horse head on plate)
67.390

Need a coffee, will go and have a think about a few more options

Nice suggestions but we have GT390.
I am not sure that shielding of the starter wil lwork as it is an old 'clapper' style and the solinoid is up in the inner guard.
Lee, it is an auto so I hope never to park on a hill that steep where a 'hill start might help'

Only 4 things to slow you down in that case - bad battery, voltage drop on the starter leads (positive or negative), failing solenoid (internal voltage drop/resistance) or a crook starter (bushes,brushes or armature fault)

Staying cool

After the rego experience, I swapped out the twin fans for a bigger 16inch unit I had from another build. This fan certainly moved a lot more air and kept the temp steady.

I also installed a temp gauge as the one in the cluster is working backwards. It starts by swinging up to Hot and moves towards the middle as the temp rises. I removed the cluster, getting pretty good at that now, and checked the connections- everything is as it should be. While there, I checked the earth for the loom. Reinstalled the cluster but the temp still reads backwards and the ammeter does not want to play.
Taking the hint, I installed another water temp gauge using a sender I installed in the thermostat housing snout.

Later in the week, I got the car out for a run. Went down and put what is sure to be the first of a lot of petrol in her. Drove home, around 2kms, to let H have a drive- it is her car remember. Well, at the top of our drive she, the car, decided to spew coolant everywhere. Pop the hood and realise that the fan is not going- another WTF moment. Reversed the car down and parked her in the shed.

After a trip to the wreckers to buy the male end of the thermo temp switch loom (off a VW Transporter no doubt) and removing the relays, it was the easy thing- the fuse-that had blown. At least I now have a really neat looking thermo fan switch as opposed to the spade connectors I had used.

Last weekend I drove down to Nuts to test the fan etc. Being a hot day, it was rather nerve wracking as the temp crept up to 200deg F. Anxiety was compounded as I was not sure if the fan was working. I contemplated stopping a few times just to see but drove through the anxiety and arrived safely at Nuts- Yes the fan was working. The car goes pretty well. If you put the foot down a bit she really picks up. CanÒ€ℒt wait till she is properly run in to test her legs.

As Lee is experiencing, the hot starting is an issue. This provided an excuse for a cuppa. The trip home was uneventful but she still ran hotter than I like.

Through the week, I searched the threads for a recent post on fan shrouds. Nuts had posted that a Mondeo shroud was a good fit. Nassi, provided a photo and part number (from a HB Mondeo 93-2000). Shroud sourced and ordered.

The shroud was delivered Friday and I installed it yesterday. Pretty easy, just needed a few of the perimeter mounting tabs removed and some filing to give it a snug fit. The shroud is a great fit between the top and bottom tank and fits perfectly around the sides. There is a lip along the top and bottom tanks that this shroud fits perfectly between. For the moment, I have used the mounting tabs on the inside of the radiator support to mount it. I will block off a few of the missing deletes near the battery and might make a small angled piece (diffuser) to create a low pressure area behind the radiator to further improve cooling.





Another drive and the car ran well. The temp does not get over 200deg F and both fans pull it down. The shroud makes the fans much more effective as the car cruises along around 175deg F (80 deg c).

H had her first drive- thank Christ she loves it! She took the elderly neighbour down the road for a drive. It looked great as they drove off up the street. Car sounds really nice.

Here is how she now looks:

Those fans fit real nice...... What have you done about the skinny battery cable you were using?
