overheating fourtrack

The four 10mm bolts that hold

The four 10mm bolts that hold the fan (and the pully behind it) to the water pump are tucked in behind the big alloy fin covered part of the fan. Then have a look at the bottom of the first responce of mine on this page: http://www.daihatsu-drivers.co.uk/node/788

Any veiws expresed in this thread by me are purely from my own experience, and (sometimes) falible memory. Hope my comments help, but please don't take them as gospel.
