S4 Radiator Mounting Plates

PostPost by: dougweall » Fri Apr 09, 2004 7:29 pm

Hi guys,

I have a jigsaw puzzle of an S4 Elan. Some of the bits that are missing are the plates which mount the radiator to the inner wing. (I think they do)

Do any of you live near Barnsley, South Yorkshire that I could visit and take some photo's or has anyone got any under bonnet shots of these plates so I can make some or know of where I can get hold of any.

If any one has some jpeg shots I would be grateful for an look see.

Thanks,

Doug

Hi Doug, what exactly do you want as i have an s4 with the radiator out at the mo but all the brackets are still in place. Is it the brackets on the side of the rad or the actual L shaped brackets you want pics of? either way I can get a jpg of either to you.

regards
Mark

Mark,

Thanks for the reply, it is the radiator mounts on the inner wing that I think I have not got, I have had a couple of e-mails saying upgrade to a bigger rad, etc, but it will still require mounting properly.
My thoughts were that the original inner wing mounts could be reproduced to fit a larger rad if I had one made, which I think is the way to go because the original rads were marginal on cooling.

Thanks again

Doug.

I have just installed a bigger rad in my S4 and had to make up brackets as required. If you want some design notes and / or pictures please let me know. I can also tell you where I got all the bits from, all sourced here in the UK.

I bought some parts of someone at Donnington this year who also had a radiator and side brackets for sale. I seem to remember he wanted ?40. The side bits were in good condition. If you are interested let me know as I think I still have his phone number around the place.
