So the thermostat is coming out and i will test it. But also fill it up and run the engine without thermostat to see if it circulates.
The weather was finally good yesterday, so the thermostat came out. After refilling the coolant until it came out of the vent screw on the hose by the thermostat housing, I started the engine.
In the expansion tank I now could see coolant coming out of the top inlet which vents the thermostat housing. What a relief.  Cheesy
That means that the pump is circulating the coolant and the impeller has not come loose. This was checked without thermostat installed, as suggested by Roy.
Next the replacement thermostat goes in and we try again.

I replaced the thermostat in my 1.6 with this one.


This is opening at 81 C and has automatic air venting to let trapped air out.
It made my coolsystem better.
As far as I know the 2.2 uses the same thermostat according to the manual.

This is brilliant !

How strong and/or flexible do you recon the print is ?

I remember from earlier days of 3D printing that this was a problem, and a 3D print was more for checking the CAD drawing before sending it to somebody with a CFC milling machine.

What software and file formats are you using ?  - maybe you could crowdsource the model-building to the rest of us  (even if we're sort of a small crowd) ?

Agreed... Will hang onto it as i got it as an experiment and it has the same mountings.  You never know,  if my slave goes I'll get the matching one. LOL

I have been doing some work on the master cylinder so if anyone is interested I have a shed loads of the repair kits which include the seals piston and circlip and spring available. These are the kits Simon sells for 47.90 euro + his postage. They are available at £20 +postage. Alternatively the part numbers on the various boxes I have are:-
KAP 835     A/P
RL558212192 00    LOCKHEAD/DBA
SP5866 LUCAS
If you wish to source your own.

Sorry ...additional..... They are listed as
ALPINE SOLARA MINX 75-86
HORIZON 78-85
SIMCA 1100 77-84
19MM SO 1.6 ONLY

They are identical in that they have the same numbers stamped on the piston as the one I have just removed from EOW

The protrusion doesn't make any a difference to the volume displaced, it simply means you start off with a smaller initial amount, but the displacement is the same.

Hi Pete
Your calculation of Pie r sq would be correct if there was no intrusion passed the end of the piston, but, as stated both pistons have a protrusion passed the end of the piston with the 22mm much larger therefore displacing much more fluid. The amount of movement at the slave cylinder would be determined by the volume of fluid displace as we agree but these volumes may be the same. I don't intend using it as I have the 19mm one which now has new piston and seals fitted, but for my own interest I will be filling both with fluid replacing the pistons and seals and checking the volume of fluid both hold
Will let you know the results, but it is really intriguing me.

The volume of fluid displaced is  equal to the area of the piston face (3.142 x radius squared) x piston travel.  The larger volume of fluid displaced will make the clutch action heavier and possibly push the slave beyond the end of it normal travel.  I wouldn't use it.
