Wonder if there are any modern heater blower motors that would fit a dolly.

PAS method looks adaptable, but I'll give it a miss :lol:

Something like that Rover 25 motor could probably be made to fit the fan case in a Dolomite.

But on the PAS, you'd still have to find a suitable power rack AND the space under the engine to fit it. Plus, those electro/hydraulic pumps are real power hogs. You'd need a 140amp alternator to run it!

QUESTION! "Hey Nick, how come you do all this wonderful but unnecessarily complicated fabrication work on all your projects?"

ANSWER:- "Because I CAN, of course!!!!!"

Steve

I hate rain sensing wipers slightest bit of rain and they are on full chat, does my head in.

First thing I do when I get a new company car is turn them off!

Great fabrication as always but come on I want to see more progress to getting it running.

It is a fantastic series with great engineering and skill and a nicely put together series of videos. I just have this horrible feeling that the first time they use it in anger it may end up being wrapped around a tree. After all of that work I think I would be afraid to use it!
