Time for a little update.
After the zed had been tucked up all winter it was time to blow the cobwebs off and go to a little local meet at melbricks organised by @davey_83 I say little, though over thirty zeds it was a great turn out.
Now to get there involved going on the dreaded M6, which you’d think on a early Sunday morning would be traffic free. Yeah right ! Getting stuck in traffic I noticed that the temp gauge was higher than usual, not in the red but not looking good. I quickly turned the air con on and luckily that brought the temp down then I got off the first exit which I could.
When getting to the meet I popped the bonnet and to my suprise both rad fans where running and cutting in and out as they should
After the meet we went for a drive out, then after the drive home with no problem at all. How ever not getting stuck in traffic and opting for the twisty way home helped.
Once home I decided to do a little investigating as regards to the fan motors. By unplugging the motors and applying 12volts direct from the battery to the motors, first to the speed one terminals, then the speed two terminals and low and behold neither of the motors worked on speed one.
I decided that with Japfest fast approaching and not wanting to get caught out in the ques, the quickest option for me was to get a nice shiny mishimoto fan shroud kit.
A couple of days later it was delivered.
Once fitted having had to remove the top hose to get the old fans out and the new ones in, it was just a case of topping up with coolant about a litre and a half in this case.
Now it’s know that the mishimoto fans are louder than stock as they are single speed and both run together, but to be honest it doesn’t bother myself at all, plus it’s a bit more bling in the bay.
