morris is on a distinguished road

I think I need to test the calibration out of the car before going any further as I may be chasing a non-existent issue. I will get louvres done at some point but really wanted to leave that until I was 100% with the build so didn't cut them in the wrong places.

I also don't have the little oblongs cut out around the grill which would have a very minor effect. Looking at my fan (pusher) it covers most of the rad so that won't help natural cooling and it's known that push is not as efficient as pull. Unfortunately I think the latter won't fit. I could go for a smaller fan and maybe build some cowling as this will improve efficiency and also drain less power which my new 40A alternator is struggling with at idle when everything is switched on.

I'm hijacking McRamsy's original thread now so will stop talking about my problem...
