  1. I assume its perspective!

    I tried the exhaust gasket and its smaller.
  2. Make one!

  3. Gasket paper (and corn flake packets) - got me out of a jam on Sunday afternoons many times. Local motor factor is old school and sells it off a big roll. Well worth having in a box - you can make lovely ones like @snotty or rougher but serviceable ones by placing the paper over the flange and tapping gently round with the rounded end of a ball pein hammer.

  4. It's an aftermarket pulley so could be slightly smaller diameter, quite a few are apparently (vzi and samba both have several comparisons, seem to suggest around 10% less fan revolution with a majority of the aftermarket pulleys).
  5. @GRINNER I think I may have a standard pulley in the garage you can have, if you want it?

  6. Is it really that much smaller? I've never noticed.

    I think I might have one in the garage, I'll have a rummage.
  7. Didn't find one and forgot about to be fair.

    It's back in now, just some plumbing to do!

  8. ...it's alive!

  10. Good news, always satisfying after major surgery!!

    That fan belt up a bit loose though, if you haven't already I'd given that a tighten or it will overheat again.....
  11. Oh yeah, it's tensioned now.

    Smaller driven pulleys spin faster, so should be more Cooling
  13. I agree, but in this case its the drive pulley that is smaller as its the crank pulley that is the aftermarket version. So he driven pulley rotates less, hence less cooling.
