Any one have any pics of a radiator in a 1303? I should add: WITH the spare tie still under the boot?

sort of
ive cut a US air conditioning grill into the valance and the air comes thro that and is deflected up through the radiator by a scoop
the back and sides are sealed off so the air has nowhere to go but through the rad and out underneath
i used waterproof ply as it doesnt transfer any heat into the boot, is strong but light and very cheap not to mention easy to work with

This is a nice idea:



Yes, you would lose a little HP's due to the fan running all the time (it's shaft-driven). But this should work pretty good, after all, the lawn mower engines use the same system.

One thing to watch out for would be balancing the fan, or it would shatter at high rpm's.

Ingenious!!!
That fan could be electric. Scooping air up from beneath should work. Now I really have a good inspiration for putting my dust collecting Scooby into a Beetle! Happy

Well, I wouldn't use an electric fan. The shaft driven fan is alot more powerfull and more efficient.

With the electric fan, you have some loss converting motion into electricity through the alternator. And after that you loose some turning that electricity back into motion.

The V-belt shaft driven fan is more direct.
