little progress here.

-cleaned the yamaha r1 carb.
-got the dxf files of inlet and outlet flange to the lasercutter. thanks to miniswift.
-created a new water pulley. just for the demensions so it fits in the frame a bit better now. the pulley needs to be made more secure to get it balanced.

rest of the time last weekend i spent on my other car.

Why a different pulley for the waterpump? The engine too far to the back?

the pulley almost hits the rubber spring cone. so i think it's better to take a smaller one.

Other option is to take some rubber off the cone. More people have done that just to give it some milimeters clearance

I had the same problem. I went OTT and fitted an electric water pump which i've got to say really helps with the cooling.

I used the Davies Craig EWP80 with the controller.

https://www.merlinmotorsport.co.uk/p...r-kit-ewp80kit

Max flow is 80L/m but the controller vias the speed to suit the engine temp. You remove the thermostat and the pump sorts the rest. It defiantly helps with warm up and along with a MPI rad and some motorbike fans it keeps it cool.

does this pump also work without the controller? or does it cool it the engine too much then?

You need the controller unless its some form of drag car. If not you need something to switch it on and off. I wouldn't recommend the pump without the controller.

Kees,

I read a lot of issues with the ewp80 kit. I dont say its a bad kit or something! More people have a electric water pump ans a lot of modern cars have it too so it would be fine at the end.

Ive got a 2 core radiator and did not ever had any problems with the coolong. I think its a lot of money for something you dont need.

Cheers Sebas
