that's an excellent mod Anders and its great lookin at how the cars progressing.Do you know the part no.of the pump Huh Im already looking forward to the next instalment  Cheesy Cheesy

Thanks! Two £'s Huh

The pump is the EWP80 https://www.carbuildersolutions.com/uk/electric-water-pump-only-80-lmin

Brilliant.  You are obviously much more qualified than myself so excuse my ignorance.  Does.the flow rate of the pump have to match that of the waterpump?  Would it create a problem if it doesnt.

I've spent too much time thinking about this, but now that you ask me and I went back to look at my old notes, I realize I've made a serious mistake! Shocked

But... Both pumps allows water to flow relatively freely through them, so the flow rate will be dictated by the strongest pump minus the friction in the system. I will have to adjust the pump controlling electric thermo-switch so that the electric pump does not kick in until the engine thermostat is open - otherwise the electric pump will work against it. The electric pump is in the radiator circuit, whereas the original mechanical is on the engine circulating the coolant through the auxillary circuit including the heater matrix. The drawing here , which I made years ago, shows the principle.

The mistake is that I've fitted the pump the wrong way - it's pushing water into the radiator instead of into the engine...  that will be next installment, I guess! Cheesy
haha sorry Anders I dont know how the hell the £ coins ended up on there.i was asking my wife to show me how to post pics on the site and was reading your post when she showed me lol

Thanks for all the info gents.
I have 3 sets of seats so for the first set I have emailed Politecnic to place an order for the DA6 type (red and black)
Once fitted I will decide if I like them and if not go down the "carjoy" route.

Awesome. Can't wait to see and hear what you think about it. It it sounds like pure Car Joy to me! Grin

Your drawing shows the pump drawing water from the radiator, and flowing to the engine. I would have it the same way so it pulls water through the radiator. Do you mean the pumps were working against each other?
Regardless still think your a genius!
P.S STOP SCRATCHING YOUR NEW PAINTWORK!!!!!
LOL

Exactly they would have worked against each other, it would have been a mess! Shocked

I didn't feel very bright yesterday trying out different combinations of hoses and pump positons, trying to wrap my head around how it would fit in the strange space between the radiator and the battery tub - it looks so simple when you see the solution, but getting to that point involves trying out different things until it fits. Including taking the tub in and out. SORRY! I SHALL NOT AGAIN SCRATCH MY NEW PAINTWORK !!!

The Zinga is very porous on the surface, but this is because unlike real paint, it works from the underside chemically reacting directly with the metal underneath. So scratches are only cosmetic. C'est génial! Cheesy

I've had to give up - temporarily. I need a straight connector for the EWP80 pump to make it fit, as can be seen in the top picture. The hose on the pipe running from the engine can be pushed further in, so with the straight connector, it will fit well under the tub. These connectors are available as accessories from the Davies Craig webshop in Australia... so I'm going to look around to see if there is one closer to here Smiley

The pump connections aren't symmetrical so the connections has to be made differently than my incorrect fitment. However, with a straight connector on the pump, I just need two 45 degree pieces, so it will be simpler. For now, I've fitted a straight peice of silicone hose I had.

I've also fitted the brake booster back, and the cover behind it (repainted). The long screws are because I haven't ground and cleaned the area in front of the windscreen so don't want to rivet it on yet.

I'll be in NYC next week (incl weekend), so don't expect any updates until I'm back and has recovered from the jetlag.

Spoilt for choice now! Thats £1295 at todays rate plus taxes prob. Thats more like it. Just wonder if they are fit yoirself covers or i have to send the seats away

Simon has the seats refurbished from ground up, as far as I know, and needs your old seats and trims in return for the new ones.
