    So new (ish) piston fitted and new rings while we had it apart and booked another test.

    I was so pleased my mate turned up with his massive gazebo to keep us in the shade

    Attachment 33194

    So yes a very hot day as I'm sure you are all aware, but with in car temps hitting 45 degrees and wearing the full fireproofs, it was a tough day
    not just for me but the car as well.

    Twice it overheated

    But I did get some laps in. Not pushing too hard as I did not want to destroy the new engine components.
    On a positive, no oil leaks!! Happy days !!

    The new drive shafts survived the day, so happy with those
    Anyone recommend some decent brake pads to suit AP CP5200 cailpers? currently on DS3000, but I'm not feeling the bite



    Next outing and my last this year, should be August 6TH, Brands Hatch...................RACEDAY!!
    Damn......I'm on holiday from work that weekend, I but will be recovering from The Flying Moose's wedding festivities, I'm dying to see you and her on track ...or off track ??? (socially I mean....lol)

    That would probably explain that then, was that the fan itself or a fault with the electrical supply...?? you could do with something on the dash to tell you that it is operating when your racing, just an idea..

    so after investigation

    the fan works
    the relay works
    the sensor works
    all cabling is good
    and if you unplug the sensor the fan will run in a failsafe mode

    but if i warm the car up, it still wont run the fan??

    So, the fuel pump stopped working a little while back
    now the Fan

    I think my ECU is slowly dying

    Oh dear that's not good, will that force you down the stand-alone route, or can you get your ostrich map flashed onto a 4.3 or 4.4 ecu if that's possible...??

    The ostrich will fit into the 4.4 no problem.

    Ditch that 4.3 and TT and run the modified 608 map from Volvospeed then you can datalog superfast

    Need to do something to bring it a bit more up to date

    good news, fan has decided to start working again
    bad news, it appears the overheating has cooked the valve seals, so its developed a really bad smoking habit.

    no racing for me

    Suspected head gadget failure, probably due to the extreme heat at the track
    and lack of air through the new bumper

    I’ll keep trying, not going to give up

    J.T. are you still running a stand rad or have you upgraded the rad, if not it may be time to.......also is the water pump ok and circulating effectively... just a couple of my thoughts as the grill aperture is quite a size on an 850 and would have though it would allow sufficient cooling even out on track at your power level.

    The standard rad gave up very early on, like 10 years ago
    water pump was ok when fitted, doesn't mean its still ok

    I run an alloy rad now.

    Nice rad J.T......I did recently hear of someone having over heating issues which was baffling them, when the water pump was removed it was found to have stripped it's self of it's impellor blades.

    I've seen the aftermarket ones do that, but not an OEM part.
    When I get around to stripping it down, I'll check it
