minivin Posted November 29, 2005 Share Posted November 29, 2005 Just wondering, after firing the ol' girl up last night to test the charging circuit on my newly fitted alternator and fan belt (bloody odd size, got three extras of differing sizes now as spares as I couldn't quite get the right one), as a side benefit I could check the water pump and circuit being good and sealed. Previously with no water pump, 5 minutes running has seen the engine get reasonably hot such that you wouldn't want to take your pinkies near it for too long a time. But with the water pump now working and happily sat there ticking over for something like over 5 minutes (had to check all the lights were working) there was only the incy wincy hint of heat from the engine, I could even touch the block no problems!. Is it just a factor of a 2.5NAD at this time of year that it takes blooming ages for it to get any heat into it or am I missing something out here if it's normal then time for a radiator muff Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
