Re: Air Con Condenser - 825D or Turbo Coupe

I did ask the guys at Bevrad (who have been in the game for a while) and they were convinced with much drawing of breath and head shaking that it wasn't possible. Having been in the Oil and Gas industry for many years, anything is possible if you throw enough money at it, but I'd rather have a new g...

Re: Air Con Condenser - 825D or Turbo Coupe

I have e-mailed the Italian source to see if they can confirm suitability as their compatability check says No. The UK. e-bay add says free postage and £224 so not extortionate. Local Air Con specialist could not track one down - All OOS. Don't think Alunox will be less than £224. Condenser-Air-cond...

Re: Remade bumper bracket

Any more bumper brackets available? TGM is going in for a bit of a tidy up and it will need some. A set of four please?

Re: Air Con Condenser - 825D or Turbo Coupe

There is a company called "Alunox" in Wrexham who make bespoke rads and coolers. I've just bought a kit for my Esprit to replace the radiator, chargecooler rad, and AC condenser - which were NLA. I have asked them if they could back engineer one for the Coupe with an option to buy a few if there is ...

Air Con Condenser - 825D or Turbo Coupe

From my car thread, I need an air con condenser that was fitted to the 825D and the turbo coupe (smaller to allow room for the turbo intercooler). All showing out of stock. Dave has found the Rimmers one (also out of stock) but all my alternates are OOS too. ROVER JRB10015, https://www.onlinecarpart...

Re: Thunderbird 2, The Green Machine & Turbo Coupe

I certainly will. I need to visit Duxford again (when open) so that would tie in!

Re: 827 Alternator wanted please!

Plus one for a late rear ABS sensor. TGM needs one as the light started to come on after a rear wheel bearing change which I suspect caused it to fail.

Re: Thunderbird 2, The Green Machine & Turbo Coupe

We measured the Coupe condenser and can confirm it seems to be the same as the 825D one that Dave linked to. The guys are looking at the books to try and find a reference but that link to the autodoc listing (out of stock!) does seem to be the one. Ta. Dave.

Re: Thunderbird 2, The Green Machine & Turbo Coupe

It did stop working again soon thereafter. Unable to source a replacement so my air con guys will install a generic one They deal with tractors, combines and various coolers so can source a suitable one and make brackets.

Re: Thunderbird 2, The Green Machine & Turbo Coupe

Cheers. Funnily enough it is still working at the moment. I'd have thought it would have leaked out by now. Might get them to check the leak again in case a false alarm. Will measure again in case.

Re: Thunderbird 2, The Green Machine & Turbo Coupe

Thanks Dave. The measurements don't seem to tie in so I'll double check mine later. Might have to see about refurbishment of the current one.

Re: Thunderbird 2, The Green Machine & Turbo Coupe

Coupe Air con: Hot weather showing the air con not as good as TGM. Had it tested today and there is a leak on the condenser. No prob, get one bought... The Vitesse one is different to the fastback due to the turbo intercooler! Measured the one on TGM and it is 610 mm between the top mounts and the c...

Re: Thunderbird 2, The Green Machine & Turbo Coupe

Update: Driving today I moved the seat back and forth, there was a crack and it now moves as it should! Now can adjust until it feels right and makes the clutch issue less of a problem. Relief!
