Default Inks Lake Texas State Park Meet

I didn't take many pictures but had an adventure with the ATX crew trying to get out there.

Had some electrical problems where everything (and I mean everything electrical) went kaput except my speedo (not pictured are my 52mm gauges that weren't getting any power):



Found it's hard to keep one's car cool in the Texas heat without an e-fan:



But everything turned out alright:







Apologies for splitting early. I did learn that in the future I should probably bring my R!

Nice pictures. I'll upload mine sometime next week.

It looks like your temp compensator board is out of whack, or your rad and thermostat are not working efficiently. At that speed, the majority of your cooling is from oncoming air and not the fan.

Naw, the first picture is when there is no voltage, the second was right after a traffic light and I mashed it down to get up to speed quickly. At highway speed with the e-fan off it usually rests right below the middle dot.

Was it not turning on? You need a larger fan!

My e-fan never kicks in at 55.

I have it wired to a switch, not a thermostatic sender. Had I turned it on at that point sitting at a stop light it would have run for 30 seconds and then everything electrical would have shut off from low current. I'll see tomorrow what's going on - could I have too many electrical-ness-ness in my car? Gauges, lights, e-fan, radio, etc...?

A larger (or at least working alt) to handle the load would be nice. Also look into a yellowtop.

Getting a little personal now aren't we?

1) Almost nothing.
2) I dig sewer pipes, sell fire works, land clear, paint, and a few fitness centers.
3) Texas Tech University.

I'm a beast.

Photobucket has a function where you can upload up to 20 images at a time from just the URL alone.

copyimagelocation, paste, x 20, upload, repeat as necessary

Mmhmmm, my fitness has more to do with power lifting. None of that pansy, sissy, running around chasing balls.

Yes, at a warehouse. No, not illegally.

You ask more questions than a girl - you must be interested in me.
