Looking into the bottom of the Windscreen washer bottle showing the
pump hidden inside the cavity.
Windscreen washer bottle (with bottom lid off), then Recovery bottle,
then header tank in order left to right looking from underneath.
The bottle set in their upright position. Bolts onto the firewall. The
header tank is fitted with a billet filler neck (as is all our
radiators) & one of our sheet metal recovery system radiator caps.
The lids on the front two bottles have not been notched when we took
The two airfoil cross section support bars (they do away with the front
radiator support panel) we fabricated. The radiator & transmittion oil
cooler is mounted on the bottom bar & the radiator on the top.
Macro pic. of the fabrication & weld quality in our work. Trans. mount
is very efficient.
This is the 'stepped' bottom radiator outlet pipe. Alloy radiators are
very efficient but by engineering the setup to the max., we build a big
safety margin into the cooling capacity - & give real value for $. In
cross flow radiators I find that if the pipe is right at the bottom, it
pulls too much water from the bottom rows of tubes, so to stop this
happening, we split the pipe so it has too draw half the water from the
top part of the core. This is a dual pass radiator so this is probably
overkill, but !
When trial fitted to the car, the outlet pipe could not be made to
clear the steering box & give full flow, so before we did an invisible
patch on the tank, I took this pic. to show how our stepped pipe works.
Nobody ever sees this sort of work because it is hidden inside, which is
a shame as this is why our product may be more expensive than others.
Shroud we made for the two 14" DC fans.
Macro of the fan mounts. Welding could've distorted the 2.5mm sheet, so
we milled these billet mounts which bolt on from the inside. Nigel is a
machinist by trade & they impressed him.
Looking at the front of the radiator. The dual pass is done by making
two tanks for that side, welding one on & then the other buts up. This
way, water can't bypass & not be cooled.
From the rear before the fans were mounted. The -10 JIC fitting in the
middle of the left tank is from the header tank & the -4 at the top is
an air bleed, back to the header tank
