I'd definitely check all earths but if it was working before and not now that's just strange. What about the fan itself?

Those wheels are beautiful. great work.

Looking a bit deeper into things last night checked the Fan switch itself to find that it was faulty it was tight in the thermostat but the actual plug was just turning..... Brilliant this was a brand new plug too..!! :x

Changed the switch for a new non faulty one...

My mate dropped down the fuse box and was looking through and found that the rear reverse light wasnt working and also this was linked to the fans too... Pulled the relay out and it was all melted over the connections which was a little worrying... Cleaned the pins off and plugs it back in..

Then looped the fan switch plug and finally found the issue the fans come on brilliant... So happy onto something here...

Started the car and got it upto temp and click the fans come on.... Result....

Think i am going to see if i can get a new relay as the other wasnt in best condition...

Now time to get booked back in at Grove... :)

Nice one mate!!

Glad you got it all sorted.
Always a pain in the arse when a new part is faulty and sends you on a wild goose chase.

Yeah really annoyed about it...

Basically the faulty switch cause the plug to overheat and melt which also cause the replay to get hot and melt also so because of one fcuked switch it's cause no end of grief...

Oh well it's all forgotten when I press the go pedal and hear to turbo spool and chatter when I lift off...

Only to 3k of cause for the moment ;)

It's been booked in at Grove Garage with Ahmed tomorrow afternoon :)

Well took the car down to Grove for Ahmed to have a look around it. After a check over and a chat it seems the project is going to be taking another twist...

They way forward to get the most of the engine and mods that have been done is too go down the standalone management route, with different injectors and a Cosworth Fuel Pressure Regulator it should be a right little handful I have been told...

So back home I went to see what I can find and finish off the 1000 miles to run the car in...

Here are a few more pics when I went out for a little drive and photoshoot...

Firstly the Gauges

Now for some arty farty pics...
