GT6 radiator modification. Still some cooling problems. Is this "normal"?

Sounds as though you have got it sorted. Just check your levels for a while to ensure there are no airlocks. Running for a good long period with the heater on is probably sensible, but choose a nice cool day!!

Are you going to stick with just the engine driven fan and the cowl?

My plan is not to refit the electric fan if I can possibly avoid it, although until we get some really hot weather I won't actually know. If I do have to remount the fan, I will make up some proper brackets rather than use those plastic ties.

Fingers crossed then !

BTW I think you are on to something with fan cowl, as many cars had these as original equipment. Possibly a design that covers the whole core could be developed for building in glassfibre. Something I have thought about, but my current 12" SPAL sucker seems to be doing the job at the moment, so no real incentive to invest the time.

+1 for the 12" Spal, cools my Vitesse down a treat.
