Hi guys I recently bought a sportrak 1991 on a j reg with some history and showing 64+ mileage, car drives really well other than when I purchased it was over heating badly.
I did a compression test and all was well there so I have replaced the thermostat, water pump and finally the radiator, which did improve things a lot but it is stiil getting a little too hot for my liking wether driving solo or towing our little caravan.
I have read the threads about the sticky viscous fan and I am intending to replace it with an electric fan and shroud off a corsa/astra/vectra unlees anyone has any better suggestions other than the expensive kenlowe route.
The car itself is a 1991 black 1.6 ELI with no extras, not even a stereo just a daihatsu blnking plate, other than a towbar I fitted.
We have owned 4x4s before 2 vitaras, 1 range rover vogue, 1 isuzu trooper and most recently a shabby disco, and we are pleased with our little daihatsu. I will post some pics soon as I am currently spraying the bottom half silver.
Thanks in advance
