It's been an intermittent problem, first on the way to Classic Le Mans, and now at Brands.     

The symptoms may not help other's to diagnose as my wiring is very modified.    The electric rev counter fails and then the engine overheats as the electric pump fails too, which it did about two laps from the end of qualifying at Brands.     I looked for and I thought found a poor connection, but in the pit garages a running water pump is totally inaudible thanks to all those blasted cars going by, but clealry not as it started to overheat on the green flag lap, so I came back in, no harm done.      Back home, again I think I've found the poor connections - it was an earth! - on the water pump and on the rev counter - just the connectors on its back.  Not associated at all, so I'm not certain of this fix.

 

Needs a test drive, and a test event, so the 3 Sisters Sprint will be most valuable, I hope!

I had that when we tried electric pump John. it was a faulty relay to the pump.  could hear it clicking in and out as i coasted in a cloud of steam to  the side of the track.  cheap little part cost an engine.

I suspected the relay, Roy, as the one on my ignition had failed, just before CLM!   

But because of that I had a spare and it made no difference.

 

The pump would run - and then not run after the engine started.     Tapping the wiring would get it going, ad eventually I found a loose connection to the earth on the signal side of the relay, which accounted for the 'no volts' in the power lead.   

Fingers crossed.
