After 39 years we took the car back to Bathurst to run last weekend

It was a big thrill for us to actually get it back to the track that wrote her a little chapter in history.

Car ran faultlessly all weekend and we had a couple of runs cut short with red flags but we got two good runs in on Sunday afternoon with some clear space from other cars to build on Saturdays runs.

All I can say is that Spencer Martin running 2.58sec laps in 1979 on Uniroyals was amazing. The track is 400 metres longer now so a 2.58 most likely equals a 3.02ish lap time and I am 7 seconds away from that at present but happy with progress towards that target..

My fastest lap of day was my last one at 3.09.01 and I progressed each outing. Still much to learn and best way to learn is many more laps so will have to get back there again.

Pictures from the event official photographer

I love how it almost lifts the inside tire on a sweeping curve.

We spent boxing day afternoon playing in the shed.

Pulled gearbox to fit new clutch as the old one was on its last legs with clutch plate almost down to rivots. It was just a standard Sachs Clutch and lasted 4 years which is very good given what we have asked of it

We went a bit fancier this time round

Also serviced the M46 whilst we had it out

Nice!

Keep an eye on the firewall. With the stiffer clutch, the firewall where the cable housing connects has a tendency to fatigue. The cable usually stretches and breaks before the cable gets ripped through the firewall though. If you have to adjust your clutch over and over, its a good idea that you order a new one....

Clutch engagement should be much more brutal with the five puck. Was too much for my DD, but should be fine for your race car.

We got the car back together yesterday after shouting it a little more work to the head and like the way the clutch feels.

The company that did it does their own modified version and they say it falls between a full on button clutch and the standard clutch for feel and I can vouch for that. Mid point be best description

The aftermarket electric fan we have on is way too small and is struggling to cope when we come in after the races and get stuck in traffic or are delayed returning to pits.

I have sourced an 850 fan and intend to slot it into a 740 T fan shroud part number 1317338 and we will run it on high speed. We already have fan switched manually as we had a thermo switch fail. I like the 740 shroud as it mounts straight to 240 radiator using standard mounts

Now to find that 1317338 shroud - Shroud sorted

There have been many people that use the 940 fan with integrated shroud. The shroud is wider, but seems to be pretty simple to cut down and bond back together. There is also a nice relay controller that goes with it.

Thanks Quiilic for info.

I already have the 740t shroud on the way now as well as the hardware to make it happen. It should come together pretty quick. There is a good online article on ozvolvo http://https://ozvolvo.org/discussion/3316/850-electric-fan-in-240

So even I should be able to get it all mounted.

Will get auto electrician to sort wiring whilst they are tidying up a few other jobs.

I have had a question on window channel in my post.

It appears it may have changed part number.

Contact Better Auto rubber and confirm if old part number BR1012 but pretty sure this is new part number but please do research to confirm.
