Electric Water Pump
I'm interested in your article about the
electric water pumps (see Testing the Davies Craig Electric Water Pump - Part 1).
I am putting a Starlet GT engine in a Mini and am considering fitting an
electric water pump to save space etc.. do these things live up to all their hype?
(better cooling and increased power etc???)
If we thought it was wonderful we would have
I was just reading through your posted article
"Type R to 10500". I would like to know why the owner Rob changed his name half
way through the article to Roger? Just seems a little impromptu to do something
as dramatic and change your name in the middle of an interview. Maybe a proof
read next time might be in order.
Well, we thought the name ‘Rob’ was pretty
boring, so.... Article now fixed

Maybe you can write a piece about your opinion on the subject.
The article has been widely discredited. The
truth is probably somewhere between this and the idea that hybrids are going to
save the world.
Falcon Digital Info
One thing I thought of while reading the latest
Driving Emotion, regarding calculating Cd from the power output under cruise, is
a more accurate way of figuring your exact mileage. The dashboards in EF/EL
Falcons also receive some of the information that the trip computer gets, and
regardless of whether or not a trip computer is fitted, can display this
information in the trip/odometer area (police dashes aside, these have a speedo
corrector function, adjusts speed +/- 10% in 0.1% increments).
this function, hold the trip button in while the ignition is switched
to 'on'. Then release and press the button three times and on the third hold it
until the seat belt warning light goes out. Pressing the trip button for under
two seconds goes forward one screen, over goes backwards. I think over 7 seconds
returns this to the trip/odometer readout. You also don't lose the trip meter
If memory serves me correctly, the fifth screen (indicated in the
display by a number) shows instantaneous fuel consumption. The upper number is
L/100km, whole numbers only (much like the trip computer), but the interesting
bit is the lower number, in L/Hour. This displays to 0.1L/Hour increments, and
at 100km/h should be amore accurate figure for the L/100km display. Other
features include coolant temp (degrees, above 40 Celsius, measures to
0.1degrees), RPM, vehicle speed, battery voltage, oil pressure (where an oil
pressure sender is fitted, otherwise reads zero), fuel remaining, and fuel
sender resistance. Also has gear position for automatic cars.
I have sent
this before, but that was before I found out what the screens all meant, and
long before Frank came to be in your hands.
