Original 3 x Speed Ventilation Fan 2kg

Single Speed Ventilation Fan from Car Builder Solutions 1kg. (£28:00)

Fits using the original mount bracket with some meccano type brackets and some spacers. The flexible attachment is a little bit too big, but can be attached with a ty-wrap and some bonding. Wires need extending and plugs into pins 1 & 3 for Speed 1.

I set up 4 x corner weight scales in my garage today and took great care to make sure they were all level in all directions using plywood and vinyl tiles.
The car was then lowered onto the scales and a total reading of 989kg. was observed.
There is a weight distribution of Rear 59.5% and 40.5% Front.
All fuel was removed as well as spare wheel, wheel jack and brace. NB: My car has been modified and some original items removed.
When I get in the car the front weight distribution improves side to side, but the rear becomes worse side to side.
Some corner weight adjustment will now be required using the front torsion bars and the aftermarket adjustable coilovers on the rear I have fitted.  Some reduction in pie intake has also  been suggested!  Grin
