    Think airplanes. Motor in front and the fan (aka propeller) pulls air from the front and pushes it to the rear. Turn that motor around and stick it in the tail. You've turned the fan around but you've also reversed the rotation of the motor shaft. The fan pulls air from the tail and pushes it forward - she won't fly. To use that motor in the rear you need a fan (propeller) with reversed pitch...

    The blade will still pull the air through the Rad Geoffrey. It Does have a slight arc in the blade but it's pretty marginal. Many people think if you turn the fan over it will send the air in the opposite direction.....not true...if you turn one over it still has the same pitch as it did in the other direction. Sometimes the logic of the mind will play tricks on you. Don't believe me? Just ta...

    I missread this on ebay thinking ' I'll bid for this at the end date. But it was a high bid cash price (but isn't that what ebay is for?) and was sold sometime today for £200.I might have paid that had I read the posting correctly as mine is okay and that's about it. I guess when you look at say a TD or TF they are being sold probably somewhere near that price from say B and G or NTG perhaps. M...

    Does it make sense to fuse the starting circuit by adding an in line fuse to the brown wire coming out of the harness and going to the starter switch?

    Thanks, George

    One of the conversion tables takes into consideration the form and size of the tire. Anybody happen to know its URL? Bud

  • Geoffrey M Baker29 August 2015

    Well, I definitely differ. I've never heard of a fan that works in both directions. Every fan blade is designed to push air in one direction only. Reversing a fan blade pushesair the opposite way.
    In the engine bay, the effect would be to negate incoming air through the radiator when driving, by pushing air in the opposite direction. I can only imagine that this will reduce cooling efficiency i...

    Jud has it right. Rod, is there any chance that your motor mount is tired and your engine is sitting slightly low? I use the MGB fan in my TD and am delighted with the results TFs can be snug, but they're pretty. Bud

  • MG TF CONVERTIBLE - ONE OF THE LAST BRITISH EDITIONS

    “Here i am parting with my MG TF, this car is a true collectible being one of the last British Made editions. There is one key and one fob with this car, there are some tiny bumps and scratches and the fob needs re set to use the central locking (I am unsure how to do this, but there are forums and experts). This car doesn't come with a spare as standard but there is a can of repair sealant provid...

  • FOR SALE NAVY BLUE MGF CREAM LEATHER PROJECT OPPORTUNITY

    For sale is my lovely MGF 1.8 car with 82k on the clock.
    The engine appears to be absolutely sound, lovely when driven.
    The car needs some work and I am appealing to an avid MG'er to take on this beautiful car and restore her to the original treasure she once was and can be again
    The car starts but does not drive, this is due to the hydraulics in the clutch, it could be something as silly...
