Hi All, I've gone and busted the take off from my Zetec thermostat housing thingy, the one that, on my setup, goes to the expansion/header tank with a 10mm hose. It's the green bit, the rest of it is in the hose! It seems the plate has 3 bolts (two seen in the pic) so just the face plate might do...? Could I even block this off? I broke it whilst replacing the old original header tank with a new one and I also discovered I need some more hose. It needs to be 25(26)mm at the thick end then 15(16)mm at the thin end. I suspect it needs to be about a foot long min as I'm
rebuilt the engine with a dry sump system, and added a laminova water oil cooler. the new oil system is fine no leaks. however, the water system which hasn't changed much in layout, is leaking like a sieve. new jubilee clips hoses and joiners, all the diameters are fine, hose clips are in the right clamping range, hot or cold 3 joints just wont seal. I ran it up with the header tank top off,so dont think its pressure, at full temp 3 new joints dripped. When i stopped the engine it had 1/2 a header tank of water, next day, stone cold, the garage floor is soaked and the system is nearly empty.
