    Now men, take a look at your shaft !! Is it bent like mine?
    Is it normal? I don't want it to affect my greasy gearbox ?

    Yes from what I remember it has a slight bend not dead straight.

      • Inspected tank , been laying around for ages and a bit brown,
        I was thinking about a cheep liquid to clean inside it with ,
        Embarrassing,ly I was in pound shop a payed £1 for half a litr of white spirit , then got back and realised that's more exspencive than petrol,,TwaT !!!
        Got some gravel and a few nuts and bolts that needed a clean and put in tank with white spirit and shook about a bit,

        ,,
        It worked qwite well but need some petrol for the next attempt,

        • So many small things to do but in what order do you do them in ,
          I have access to any tool but 60 miles away , I chose to revisit altinator bracket, I'm happy now and put thought in
          So it's ajustable and not difficult to deal with, I think lol

                  It's a new Corsa type , was cheep a few years ago,
                  The hoses are in correct place ,
                  I was planning to mount it straight across front but I'm going
                  To struggle with my Lecky fan so I'm thinking to go a little
                  Bit sideways just to give me 2 inches for the fan on right
                  Passenger side, it don't feel good but will
                  Do for now Richard, trying to put a pic up but imgbb,
                  Isent loading, will show n next vid,

                    Thanks , I used to be good at ark but I now just get by lol
                    Keep forgetting my mask ,
                    Yes tooth brush worked brill !!
                    I woke up and my teeth were all white lol
                    Wales is a inspiration as well as all that wire is gone
                    For all that modern injection junk!
                    Only in my mind anyway, but it's working for me,
                    Can't promise to be ready but I'm trying,
                    So many members minis are not ready and when I look I think I have the least to do so all the best to everyone!!!

                    • I'm mainly happy about this mounting! It's easy to take out
                      And fit !
                      Not shure about relying on the 2 hosess as top mounts but
                      It holds well at the moment!

                        • I wouldn’t worry about your top mount too much, those hoses will do the trick, my rad is only fixed on one side and I’ve had no issues.
                          Can you tell my why you messed around making a bracket for the fan when you could just cable tie or use a fixing kit to mount it directly to the rad through the fins?
                          Hopefully see this at Wales, you certainly making enough progress to be there, keep it up me luvver

                          • Another +1 on radiator mounted at bottom only. I have 2 mounts, not just the one though.

                            And again, as per Instantyellowdisgustingmess, Rad fan attached using those plastic fixing kit things with the tiewrap style ratchet clips.

                              • That's a relief that the hoses will hold the top,
                                The reason I made the fan frame was ,I wasn't aware of a unit to do the job instead,!
                                I was in the zone and one part lead to the other really,
                                I was getting short tempered!! Unlike me lol.
                                Every single nut/bolt/spanner ect was hiding away,
